The second maxim of my hobby is “Be patient.”  I learned this one, as I have with all of my wicked little hobby’s maxims, in cooking class.  Don’t flip the meat too often. Don’t open the oven to check on the bread.  Let your cookies cool on a wire rack before you eat them.  Bring the water to a full boil before you add noodles.  In other words, trust the process but stay attentive.  There’s always a correct moment for action; let it come. Don’t force it.
