Just came back from business plan meeting in Singapore, and realized that most Asians are sandbaggers. It's so obvious that some people sandbag so much that they can easily say yes when challenged for a new target without making sure it's the "right" target. They just know their sandbags are big enough.

This is a problem for those who want to do business the right way. Those trying to be transparent get scrutinized. But I believe that everyone builds his/her own reputation. If we can convince people (i.e. bosses) that we don't have anything to hide, or even show where we try to build contigencies, would then life be much easier and less stressful? Too naive?
