It's Better to Over Promise and UNDER deliver at work...Who Knew???

It doesn't make sense to me but...

Psychologists have discovered that the best strategy for career success is to over-promise and under-deliver.

This, of course, flies in the face of the idea of under-promising and over-delivering.

It might feel better to over-achieve, but research suggests that you’ll get farther in your career, faster, if you raise great expectations and make yourself seem more competent -- even if you can’t deliver. 

Who knew? Probably the people who are already doing it : )

I wouldn't run this by your boss however!
