FSF - Don't Count Your Chickens

 DON'T COUNT YOUR CHICKENS BEFORE THEY ARE HATCHED

Meaning: 

Don't be hasty in evaluating one's assets.

Origin:

Many of the proverbial words of advice that have lasted the test of time begin with 'don't'. 'Don't count your chickens' is one of the oldest, and possibly the wisest, of these. The thought was recorded in print by Thomas Howell in New Sonnets and pretty Pamphlets, 1570:

Counte not thy Chickens that vnhatched be,
Waye wordes as winde, till thou finde certaintee
