We as developers often get a lot of pressure considering the deadline for $someProduct™.

But sometimes it happens to me that I need less than half of the estimated time for development of $randomFeature or $product™.
Do you think it is fair to (rarely) procrastinate a bit in order to not show your boss that it needed much less time, so he will not lower his time estimations for future stuff?

    As a boss/dev, I would prefer to know your true skill levels. If I know you can finish task A in 2 days last month but this month, you finish another task A within 1 day means that you are improving. And I would like to acknowledge your improvement.
