Eventually you will be asked to do more and more because you already finished your work. And why not? You're technically paid to be there. If you don't notice this immediately and slow down this will be your life. I'm one of those annoying people that excels at everything. The only thing I'm bad at is humility and communicating with people too far down the IQ scale. This happened to me my entire life until I learned to pace myself. I can turn on the gas whenever I need to but mostly I just find the top 2-3 people that work themselves to death and do 2-3% less. Now I'm not expected to do the work of 3 people. I don't get phone calls constantly. And I don't get punished when I can't/won't do the work of 3 people for whatever reason.
Well. There are people that hate their place of work and instead of doing that they just skip working either with coffee breaks or bathroom breaks. So I think that way to use your time is the best.
YOU CAN LEAVE EARLIER??!! Signd me in pls.
"make place unlikable and uncomfrotable to increase productivity" reads HR and management.
As long as the results are beneficial, he doesn't give a damn about your incentives
