Not always! I've always felt that many problems iron themselves out with time. Oftentimes, when problems arise, if one acts on them immediately, the problem may be initially circumvented or even overcome. But if one waited to allow time to work its magic, the problems would first be revealed to have seemed way out of proportion to one's perceptions at the beginning, and later to aright themselves without intervention.

Obviously, this is not always the case. If imminent danger is at hand, then one must obviously do something to avert the danger--ie: a fire, a flood, etc. But in other cases, it seems to be prudent to lie low and allow nature to take her own wise course.

If a thing's worth doing, it'll still be worth doing tomorrow.

Yes. In many cases it is even better for solving the issue right, if you wait a day and then solve it.
But the danger is, that one day becomes two or three, and then there's the weekend interval, and then it might even be forgotten for a whole period. In spite of schemes and reminders.
And it is certainly a good idea to follow up a promotion campaign in a strict way, as an example.

I agree with you. Needles to say that mustn't be considered a rule, seeing that we are talking about life situatioons which tend not to follow a preditctable course, but yeah, time does its trick magically often times. It's like washing out a blur: One must first wait for the stain to dry out so it can be removed with ease. A wet blot may be irreversibly spread all over the place if dealt with without proper waiting

This is a political tool/weapon that has been used as long as politics has been around. If you want to kill a project or idea, but don't want to be known as the person who killed it, just delay and pretend that you are concerned about moving to quickly. It is cowardly and pathetic, but it is very effective especially here in the US.

Timing is everything and too late just as dangerous as too early, especially with great designs and traffic lights.

Rust to judgement is not a good thing also.

Politically, progpen has it right. And if you really want to kill a potentially subversive idea appoint a committee to thoroughly examine it.

The ruin of a great design begins with the Quixotic conception of it.
