Impress Your Boss

Impress Your Boss With Your Superstar Talent
By Michael Masterson

Always set two deadlines for every project you agree to handle. One “official” deadline that you give to the outside world. Then another “real” deadline — maybe a week earlier — that you give to yourself and your team.

When the earlier deadline is met, resist the urge to deliver immediately. (The idea is to impress your boss by delivering only one or two days early. Don’t make him wonder if you are grossly under-challenged.)

Instead, “sleep on it” for a few days. This will give you time to fine-tune and tweak. Maybe even fix errors you missed on the first go-around
