Not sure if it is just consulting but “plus one” is a favorite of mine. It’s like all extra efforts are worth the same thing. Publish a book on automation +1. Volunteer for an after work activity +1. These are not equal but you call them the same thing...

Can also mean doing too much analysis (too much data, exhausting every possibility) when a bit of logic and reasonable assumptions can focus the activity on the most impactful subset.

Sorry I was on mute.. there is a funny incident that I could recall here..so there was this call going on and one of the client asked some question to my manager... My manager ( I suppose she wasnt focusing on the call ) and when she realized she has been asked a question , she was like " sorry, was talking on mute..can you please repeat your question. I was wondering " can we not hear questions even when the mic is on mute "
