My performance review meeting was this morning. While I didn’t expect any problems, I always find it a little unsettling to go into a meeting where the focus is how good (or bad) I am at what I do. This year we have the added joy of dealing with a new set of policies and procedures that has been brought about by the government’s HEWRRs initiative, although TLU has really taken to this “punish the bad, reward the good” framework with gusto. Anyway, I can now spend the next year trying to make sure I can check off everything on my stated list of goals. Does that mean I get to ignore anything that falls outside that list, including all the bits of administedium that are bound to come up? Probably not.
