The wise know timing is everything in life. Timing changes the nature of things. Good timing can make the best of anything and bad timing can ruin anything. Time itself is a constant, but timing is part of an act. You can’t control time, but you can influence timing. Waiting well is one way to do it.

Good judgement is also about timing. Some good things seem bad in the moment, just as other good things may reveal themselves to be bad later. So it’s good to wait and judge things at the right time. Or not judge at all.
