Lies That Can Help You Manage And Make Money.
1. “Traffic Was Horrible.”
One of the common things you can find as an excuse is “I’m sorry, and I had to go toe toe with the traffic,” well practically the fact is that you overslept and you have ended up waking up late than arrive the office a little late than before. You cannot blame it on yourself because you are working hard and you had a hectic day, so you have the right to take a little more resr to keep up your strength.
2. “Got Pump Busted Open, Need Plumber.”
One of the common factors is that you are exhausted and needs a day off, well everyone needs a day off in their lives. Sometimes more than one day is not enough because it is ideal for you to come down to one place and have some time for your mind to rest. One day off is not enough you can simply use excuses which do not need any paper proof or prove that you are on it.
You can email your boss night before the day because you will let your boss informed that you were busy and needed attention to the personal issues.
3. “I’m Working on That Right Now, in Fact!”
Remote work always comes in handy because you are not only spending time with your family as well as you are also working. The not every client knows how you manage time for your work and other projects, so they ask you to do a speculation and work on the project correctly. You boss mighty ask you to work on it, and sometimes push you little which is not an ideal equation for any business or an employee. You can tell your boss that you are working on that right now. You can deliver it by the time they ask for it.
4. “I’ve Got a Commitment to Keep.”
Leadership skills are something almost everyone lacks, keeping everyone together and networking is the best part of leadership. Everyone expects a leader to work and help other but an even manager needs some time off, you get an invitation where the annoying EVENT managers ask you to join, and you just cannot do that because you are not interested in it.
It would be rude to say that “Oh boy it’s annoying, I cannot join you guys”, that is rude but what you can say is “I have urgent work to finish, I got a prior commitment”, anyone from professional buys this story as they really have that kind of work.
5. I’ll Get Back to You
