Customer service performance appraisal



Let’s face it. How many times have you done something that you swear you’ll remember but it completely slips your mind just days later?

This happens all the time when it comes to your job achievements. While it may be somewhat easier to remember key milestones for major projects you have accomplished, sometimes the more nuanced and “behind-the-scene” work falls through the crack.

Think of all those times where a work day just flies by and you have an extremely difficult time what you actually did. If you have a hard time remember what you did yourself, how do you think your manager will remember your contributions? If you were the manager, how are you going to differentiating promoting one guy from the next?

Process Design Mindset


Whether you realize it or not, everything you do in life can be broken down to a process.

As a baby learning to walk, eat, and brush your teeth?
All a series of processes.

Your morning routine, commute to work, and tasks you do at work?
All processes as well.

Understanding this important fact will allow you to make small changes to improve your life and career with minimal effort.

There is a reason why the plastic bags at a cashier terminal is located right after the bar code scanner – but once upon a time it wasn’t always like that, someone made that impactful change and everyone else followed suit.

In the same manner, if your daily routine at work is to login and manually open 5 websites in 5 different tabs to get your day started, adding those 5 regular websites to automatically “open on startup” easily improves your daily startup process with almost no effort at all.
