Updated: Dec 22, 2021

It’s that time of the year again!

PSC, Reflections, Performance Reviews, whatever they call it you gotta do it. It feels like a waste of time to write down all the impact you’ve made in the last period when you could be doing your job BUT you can turn it into a quick, meaningful, and painless process.

Here are some tips for you to minimize the time you spend on it and maximize your writing quality.

Brainstorm, gather your data, and outline before you write to make the next stage easier.
