Always be writing your self eval

My company has an annoyingly thorough review process every six months. Instead of panic-writing my self evaluation when it’s due, I write a little bit every week.

  1. Each Friday, I have a recurring reminder to write down what I worked on that week.
  2. I write each of those things in PAR format: Problem, Actions, Results.
  3. When review time comes, I can copy/paste that doc and I’m done.

If your company makes a big deal out of self evals, give that process a shot.
