    Smile Think about future when it comes

    Hi there,

    I want to know if there is an idiom or expression in English denoting: I/We will think about a problem in the future when it happens and I would rather save energy and time not thinking/speaking about a hypothetical problem that has not come up yet.

    I am really looking for an existing idiom, saying or expression, and I will appreciate any help.

    Thanks a lot

    We would say:

    "I'll cross that bridge when I come to it."

    (Or he will/she will/we will and so on, of course).
