102. Never Be Surprised

You never wanted to be surprised in a review, so it important to have regular check-ins with your manager to get his/her opinion on how you are progressing against your deliverables, commitments and review goals. Now will probably never tell you exactly what I am actually going to get on my review before I have the actual review itself because there are a number of variables that are out of their control and they don’t want to promise what they can’t deliver on. But if you are off course, you can both use this time to determine how to make a small course correction before it becomes a much larger issue. Also if you do need to modify some things, catching it early in the cycle and having time to change course and get back into the smooth sailing area before the reviews are solidified is always a good idea.
