When to Write a Sequel?

When should you consider writing a sequel? Is it something you should be planning when you haven't even published the first one and have barely even finished writing it? 

I'm guessing there is no definite answer to questions like those. But I think if I have ideas for more about the character in the first book, I should write them when I think of them. Or am I just thinking too far ahead?

Those of you who have written sequels, how long did it take you  to decide to do so? 

My idea for a  sequel to my WIP is to have my main character having anxiety about turning 13. He was similar riddled with anxiety over having to get braces in the still-untitled first book. This could work as a story in itself.

I think the only answer is when you are ready.

My sequels were pre-planned.
Have a good one.
