I’m currently working on my quarterly performance checkup for work. Due to a peculiar artifact of military performance evaluations, we are advised to frame things in terms of precise achievements as much as possible, and yet the new evaluation system for officers is designed to place values ahead of individual events. The result is that my first block of evaluation asks me to list performance objectives and achievements for my character. Here’s my first rough draft for my character objectives:
• Maintain a character clean enough, I could pin it to my sleeve.
• Don’t pin my character to my sleeve.
