Two blupdates in one day? I must be an over-achiever!!!
We had to submit our self-assessment today at work as part of our annual performance review. How the heck do you do that? What if I’m out in la-la-land? What if I think I’m 4′s & 3′s on everything, but my manager thinks I’m 2′s and 3′s? Or worse!
You might think you’ll come out better if you rate yourself lower in some categories than you think you really deserve. But that could shoot you in the butt too. I mean, if I say I’m 2′s & 3′s, but I’m really 3′s & 4′s, what if they leave it low, figuring if I’m too dumb to know better?
I’m very much type A. I think that I can and must do everything, no matter how difficult or complicated. I learn fast, and I work fast. I’m also very impatient with things that are not quick. Ask Izzybella. We were leaving the restaurant on Friday. I’m out the door and halfway to my car, when I realized she was still just coming out of the door. She says I do that all the time. I get out of the car and I’ll be halfway down to wherever we’re headed while she’s just then shutting her car door and making sure it’s locked.
I think my friends are not ungrateful for my knee problems (not to say they’re glad of it, because they’re not because they love me despite my many idiosyncracies and they don’t want me to hurt), because for once I’m the one asking them to slow down, as I hobble painfully around the mall.
So yeah, I was the first one to submit my performance review to my boss. And yeah, I gave myself 3′s and 4′s. And you know what? Some of the 3′s I really thought should be 4′s.
Wonder what she’ll think.
Note: I just did spell-check. The word I was worried I spelled wrong wasn’t, but then I had a typo in another place. Just goes to show you.
