ASAP – As Soon As Possible must be a no, no to us.
Truth be told, ASAP is a phrase that doesn’t come from anyone who is serious about getting things done. It is a strategy for postponement of work, poor performance or breaking commitments and is a chief cause of breakdown in teams who count on each other to get things completed in a timely manner.
Ang ASAP ay walang specific time sa commitment. Be specific! We have to be clear and be sincere with our words. Kapag specific, mas effective ang bawat commitment at bawat conversation. Na-aappreciate kasi ng tao kapag naging totoo tayo sa kanila. They will be accountable and yung trust, nabi-build.
Kung kailangan mo ng gamot para sa malubhang karamdaman na nakamamatay, ano ang gusto mong marinig sa hiningian mo ng tulong?
a. dadalin ko sa’yo yun as soon as possible
b. dadalin ko sa’yo yung gamot by 2:00pm
Mas pipiliin natin yung letter ‘b’ dahil alam natin na makukuha natin yung gamot ng 2pm. pero kapag asap wala tayong kasiguraduhan, basta ASAP lang. Lack of commitment kasi walang specific time na binigay.
So say goodbye to ASAP ASAP whoops! Be kind with your word. Let your yes be yes and your no be no.
The mouths of the fools are their ruin, hey trap themselves with their lips.
– Proverbs 18:7
