Do you hate following follow-ups?In our country many times we need to do regular follow-ups to get our work done by people or when we are availing services from the third party. It is not always the case, but still quite common. Many of the times this follow up is related to government agencies but sometimes it is also required for private bodies and individuals also. This is a sheer waste of time as it is highly unproductive and useless work.
Why do we need to make multiple calls for the thing which should have been done without any follow-ups? Why are these follow-ups required? This shows a lack of professionalism. I feel there can be many reasons for this. First of all, I think there is a lack of proper estimation in giving the timelines for completion. People randomly give times lines like 10 days for a task which can take one month due to lack of proper estimation. Secondly, such people do not lay importance to the value of their words and commitment. In order to avoid more questions from people, they tend to give some short deadline to avoid them which later results in follow-ups. Again a follow up may be followed by a fresh deadline with words like Sorry, the person was on leave, not well etc.
Whatever may be the case, will we be able to see the time in our country where follow-ups will be minimal?
