We’ll cross that bridge when we get to it!

By
Real Estate Agent with Better Homes and Gardens Real Estate Metro Brokers

We’ll cross that bridge when we get to it!We have all heard the expression: “We’ll cross that bridge when we get to it!”

The phrase is often used to forgo something unpleasant that could be addressed at the present time, but instead is left to run its own due course in hopes that the matter will take care of itself.

It all depends on whether you choose to be proactive or reactive. In many cases, procrastination nudges us towards the latter attribute. Many of us enjoy flying by the “seat of our pants.” There is an adrenaline rush and accompanying thrill that comes from averting a crisis.

But often, a little precaution could have prevented the problem from fomenting in the first place.

It may make life dull, but it can be a lot less stressful!

Good morning Richard -

Personally I had rather cross the bridge at hand and get the situation behind me.  I don't need  or want unnecessary stress or anxiety..... just get it over with and move on.

Hope you enjoy a great day.

Richard, I get enough stress in life with just normal activities, so if we can head something off early with a little proactive action, let's git 'r done!

The only time that I have liked that phrase is when talking about a circumstance that is about as likely as a pig flying and there is someone completely in knots over it.
