Be concise. Whether you will wait or whether you will charge in, do one or the other, and do so with certainty. When waiting or charging in, you’ll guarantee failure if you hesitate. So, the deeper issue is confidence and judgment.
When is it time to wait and when is it time to charge? This is one question, not two; the answer comes from patience. If you’re not in a hurry, and if your goals are redemptive in nature and demonstrate enough good will, you’ll have no problem waiting, then finally pouncing on the enemy when the proper time arrives.
