Management at you again for a progress report, but today is different; They want it finished up. News to you, maybe a distant memory of an email with some implication of something happening on some date.
Panic stations, because you’re probably going to be bringing nothing but bad news to them today. More miracles for a minimal wage yet again.
Just imagine a world where management put their requests in some sort of calendar? Imagine getting some quality of project management? Just imagine, all the people, being told that something has an end date. Wake up Neo, you are unfortunately stuck in a reality with people who think time management is making people do more stuff in less time.
Solution: Find a better boss. Or be very aggressive with task specificity (and end up looking for a new job anyway, as using big words might get you fired)
