Timing is everything.
One day in February when I was a boy, I decided to trim the shrubbery. I labored hard an entire afternoon. When my mother came home from work, I proudly showed her the result of my hard work.
"Look what I did this afternoon, Mother," I said, pointing to the nearly bald shrubbery.
My mother started to cry. "Son," she said, "you pruned the azaleas just before they were about to bloom."
Life is not just about doing the right thing. It is about doing the right thing at the right time. If you do the right thing at the wrong time you create a mess.
