We all know the feeling. You are happily checking your Facebook/Twitter/LinkedIn/RedTube accounts when all of a sudden your boss materializes 5 steps away from your desk. What to do? I’ll tell you what and you can thank me later.
In the past you’d wet your chair while looking at your boss with one eye and checking for a browser tab that showed something remotely work-looking with the other. Naturally that never worked. Bosses don’t buy that. Bosses are not born bosses. They have masters in checking Facebook and RedTube and most likely invented the eye-split trick.
Because of this until now the only way to look like you are doing what you are paid to do was to actually do it. But that means working and who the heck wants to do that.
And here is where I save your life. Bookmark this page in your favorite browser. Make sure it is the first link of the list, so it will always be in the same place on your your screen. Learn where that spot is and and practice clicking on it while smiling at the person in the cubicle across from you. He/She will think you’re weird but it’s all for a good cause.
Next time your boss materializes close to you, look at him with confidence while he approaches your desk and ask if you can be of any help. At the same, and without taking your eyes off him, click on the link to this page, click on the main image, and surprise your boss with an unquestionable display of uber-competence.
For better and continuous results never share with anyone remotely close to your boss. Consequences might be worse than the work you were trying to avoid.
