Better late than never or better never than late. I do not prescribe to either. Hindsight is twenty twenty.
I think that sometimes if it is late to make a decision and if the whole socio-techno atmosphere has changed so that the same decision made today would be just as stupid as not having made it to begin with then of course better never than late. However if the Same or similar socio-techno environment exists then better late than never. Every decision has to be weighed in the balance of what is going on right now. I never just take any ones word for it. By God I always try to figure out if it would work over all in today's macro-geo-political-socio-economic environment.
