Play it by Ear
8/11/17 Play it by Ear
To decide how to deal with a situation as it develops rather than planning how you are going to react.
- “I’ll have to play it by ear because I don’t know how long they want me to work.”
- “We’ll have to play it by ear for next Friday because everything is uncertain.”
- “Should we plan something for this Saturday or should we play it by ear?”
