as soon as possible

As we know, ASAP is an abbreviation for ‘As Soon As Possible’. In my opinion, a lot of us use it in context wrongly.

The word ‘Possible’ does not connote ‘immediately’ or ‘Fast Fast’ but instead connotes ‘convenience’. 

You sent me a text saying you needed a response ‘ASAP’, Do not expect that I send it immediately except it is possible for me at the time

ASAP
What does ASAP mean to you?

For example; “Hi Doris, kindly send me the names of clients ASAP”

ASAP in context there means ‘As soon as it is possible for Doris’. It doesn’t mean Doris must get it done immediately…but if she is chanced why not.

If you need a favor done immediately then you should use an appropriate choice of word instead of ‘ASAP’. 

Well, this is just my opinion but you are welcome!
