Yes, yes, keep asking detailed "how are we going" pressure questions to me, surely that will improve my performance and not make me lose focus!

    daily standup, "casual" coffee machine line talk, afternoon meeting, and some short "do you have a minute" interruptions = the bad side of corporate work culture

    Just say ”still in progress”

    To prove a point: one time you can say ”I think I’m done in 1 hour” and then 1 hour later go ”Oh no that was totally incorrect, it’ll take many more hours, unsure how long. Woops that was misleading. - isn’t it’s better if I don’t try to do guesstimates since there’s such a high risk they are misleading? Let me just tell you when it’s done, and until then I’ll just say its in progress. To avoid misleading info” 😈

    @jiraTicket that wouldn't work for me. Everything requires a date, even dates. We call those date for dates...

    @lungdart LOL at ”dates for dates”

    I now remember working in a project that di that

    Once a manager booked a meeting about deciding when we could book the actual meeting for deciding when we would start talking about some task.
    I declined.
