This proverb is to be precautious. Also it teaches us to be alert at right time to avoid dangers in future. If a dress is torn a little, stitch it immediately so that you can prevent the dress getting torn fully and become useless. Similarly any defect in machinaries or gadgets should be corrected immediately otherwise, it may result in heavy damage to the machine. Mylot members can put their response, if they have saved anything before it became fully damaged.

This is a proverb that I rarely think about until now. Friendship are the same way, you should never let anger fester, you should try to work things out as soon as you could so you won't loss that friendship.

"Wisdom is better than might..." (Ecclesiastes 9:16). "To get wisdom is better than gold; to get understanding is to be chosen rather than silver" (Proverbs 16:16). "The wisdom from above is first indeed pure, then peaceful, considerate, submissive, full of mercy and good fruits, without doubt, without hypocrisy" (James 3:17). "The beginning of wisdom is fear of God, and understanding is good to all the ones who do it; and godliness into God is the beginning of skill, and the ungodly men will despise wisdom and training" (Proverbs 1:7). "For the Lord gives wisdom; from his mouth come knowledge and understanding; he stores up sound wisdom for the upright; he is a shield to those who walk in integrity, guarding the paths of justice and preserving the way of his holy men. Then you will understand righteousness and justice and equity, every good path; for wisdom will come into your heart, and knowledge wll be pleasant to your soul; discretion will watch over you; understanding will guard you" (Provers 2:6-11). Teachings from God - "that men may know wisdom and instruction, understand words of insight, receive instruction in wise dealing, righteousness, justice, and equity" (Proverbs 1:2-3).

If work is done in time, you need not have to run around to complete the work later which may cost more time, more money and more inconveniences. That must be the synthesis of this proverb. I agree with you.

It is a age old saying. In olden days people could not afford new clothes and if the existing one is slightly torn, immediately it has to be stitched, so that the torn area should not get enlarged so as to make the cloth totally useless. In the modern day also, if some problem is found in a vehicle, it should be set right immediately, otherwise this may lead to some serious problem, affecting other areas of the mechanism.
