Silver bells

As if this time of year didn't have enough white knuckling to satisfy the most avid roller coaster enthusiast, I received my self-assessment form today for completion by Friday. It's simple enough. All I have to do is describe in detail what my job is and how I could do it better. Oh, but wait, there's more. With words of "contribution," "expectation," "core responsibility," and "cross functional team leadership," it's an absolute Christmas joy to sludge through this as I struggle everyday to figure out what the hell I'm doing. If I could just write the simple statement: “Look. I show up everyday and I somehow don't assume a fetal position in the middle of my office. Isn't that enough?”
