Performance Review time

I haven’t written in awhile, but it’s not because I haven’t had anything to write about. I have a whole list of things that have inspired me or, conversely, riled me up enough to blog about it. I just haven’t had time. But today, when I was filling out my annual Performance Review at work, I realized a couple things. First, filling out performance review forms seems like unnecessary busy work that is keeping me from doing the tasks I’m being reviewed on. But that aside: 1) my blogging performance is quite poor, 2) I need to make time to blog, 3) reviewing my work performance is both an ego trip and a slap in the face, and 4) actually reviewing my performance in life might be kinda interesting. Put my “flaws on the wall” so to speak. So, here it goes…
