Do You Work Less When You Can Get Away With It?

I have a good friend who will occasionally send me an email asking if I'd like to go to a long lunch because her manager is out of the office, and it's "okay for her to slack off." This always shocks me because whether my boss is near or far I have a steady flow of work and a to-do list that needs to get checked off. Sure, I am more productive some days, but my boss doesn't micromanage my time. It's up to me to keep up momentum, and that's one of the main reasons I love my job. The idea of doing less work or developing techniques that make it look like you're working hard when you're not is fairly common.
