Meet or Make?

Meet (v.)
– come into the presence or company of (someone) by chance or arrangement.

Make (v.)
– form (something) by putting parts together or combining substances; construct; create.

When facing problems, do you meet or make? Oftentimes, people prefer to meet rather than to make an appointment to resolve, settle or straighten out an issue. This can be described as fear, intimidation, and just apathy. Sad thing is, there is just a tiny slice of the pie who makes the effort to make. It may cost them but they will insist to make it.

Making the meeting gives you the drive to go to the meeting. After all, it’s a personal mandatory. However, when you meet for a meeting called up by someone, you will most likely have an option not to go. This draws the line between responsibility and negligence.

Remedy: When we meet, let’s always put ourselves in the shoes of those who make. With this, productivity will never be out of reach.
