Performance Development Plans

How do you tell your manager that your plan for the next year involves writing your CV and finding a new job which doesn’t bore you to death every day? And try to spend more time writing your new blog, and less time working/Facebook.

Well me being me of course, I try my best to be honest.

Though I have been discouraged from putting this on the official document stating my plan, so had to make up some bullshit to make it look like I see my future within the current department. After all, I do procrastinate and I wouldn’t be shocked if I was still here in 12 months. I do like a good moan, so what would life be liked if my job was inspiring and satisfying?

Of course, I finished off by saying “I look forward to spending the next 12 months working hard with you to achieve all the objectives set for myself this year”.

Needless to say, we both had a chuckle.


On another note, I would like to supply a weather forecast for February. Back in late autumn, I predicted snow before Christmas, but to be gone by Christmas, only to come back with a vengeance in January for a while, and February to be very cold and probably snow-filled.

I got most of it right, bar the timing of the January snow.

But I’m not so convinced on February being really cold all month now, too much conflicting data.

So I’ll have to come back to you on this one.

I am generally really quite bored and I always have a lot to say so I have come to the conclusion that I need my own blog.

I intend this to be where I put all my thoughts, my rants, my predictions – the subjects are likely to be music, weather, politics, economics and anything that I despise – or that inspires me.

Anything that I want to share with the world, especially those closest to me but not just those.

Maybe nobody will read it…but maybe it will become every day reading…would love to hear your thoughts and comments 🙂 x
