There are some tasks (for example here in IT) that take 1 day only to finish. Some employees tend to give you the impression that these tasks need at least a week to finish and more over they tend to give you the impression that these tasks are highly complicated (rocket science)!
Employees who do that say:
- By doing that you give the impression to the management that you are a very important employee who is needed and you will have a bigger chance to get a promotion.
- By doing that you, you won't get pressured.
- By doing that management won't take you for granted, and they won't underestimate you but they will appreciate what you do more.
What do you think? and do you have colleagues that do that at your work place?
