Eight = Luck?

I had my staff review today...

And my current boss asked how I felt about my score.

What can I say? I'm not entirely thrilled...even though I did get an overall 'Exceeds Expectations' review. But is that because I'm putting pressure on myself to be more than I can be? Or is it just because I know I put in so much blood, sweat and tears that I believed I deserved a better score?

I couldn't tell him. I was tired, sleep deprived and just not in the mood. Plus, I can never win with him so why even bother?

Your boss should know how fantastic you are...you shouldn't have to tell him...isn't that the way it should be? Your boss should also be the one that sings your praises to everyone else and recognises you for the contributions you bring to the team. What happened to that breed of bosses?


It's no wonder so many people want to become their own boss...

Don't let that insecure person get to you! You are far better than one person's narrow and self-serving perception of you.

Hang in there ok?
