ASAP, the acronym for "as fast as possible" , is a bliss word in the office environment. It is a word made for our culture of speed and effiiciency. As always when ideas are applied in a dogmatic way without consideration, problems arise. Things done with precipitation cause quality and reputation issues.
If you encounter a case where ASAP is not the right option, you might consider the concept DTNPT "Do the next possible thing now" to assure you use your precious time productively. This is also a powerful tool to prevent procrastination as you act instead of waiting.
