I was having a lunch-time conversation with friends when one of them who is the most driven blurted about her workmate who was too competitive for comfort. I never expected her reply to my question as to how she deals with him.
“Dapat chill lang siya.”
I was surprised by the coolness of her answer and the cool way she said it. This is what the young urban professionals of a megalopolis like Manila need – an even pace fast enough to meet the objectives set but slow enough to smell, as they say, the roses along the way.
