Same thing with great business growth ideas. I visit founders, owners and managers all the time whose office desks and conference tables are stained with the ancient coffee rings of tens (if not hundreds) of abandoned, stale, or heated-over ideas, initiatives and strategies.
If the time isn’t right for a strategy, don’t do it. But above all else, don’t ruin a perfectly good strategy by letting it hang out to get old, cold and unattractive. Put it back in the pot until you’re ready.
