Smart Approve >> Just saying…"Kicking the can down the road"

"Kicking the can down the road" is an idiom that refers to the act of postponing a decision or action, often to avoid dealing with a difficult or contentious issue in the present. It implies delaying the resolution of a problem or making a decision without addressing the underlying issues.


This phrase is commonly used in both informal conversations and formal discussions to describe a situation where a temporary solution is applied, allowing the problem to persist or resurface later. Smart Approve just saying…

While it may provide temporary relief or averted confrontation, continually "kicking the can down the road" can lead to compounding issues, making the eventual resolution more challenging. It is often seen as a strategy that defers tough decisions rather than addressing problems head-on.
