Had a performance review yesterday.
At one point we talked about my old job and she said "so you did have to write a lot, did you?" "Yeah" "Do you enjoy it?" "....not that much to be honest. I always feel like I'm too slow, overthinking individual sentences" "Oh? I wasn't expecting that at all. You voluntereed to write stuff up a couple of times and everything you did write was very well written and precise." Me: "oh."

@Virelai I hate when I volunteer for stuff that I don’t enjoy, just because I know I’m good at it and want it done well. I hate even more when people then expect me to do it more often, because I did it well the first two times…

For me it’s writing meeting protocols.

@toni yeaah. I also did those because I thought it was important to have those and to have them done well... :D

@Virelai @toni This is hilarious. This is why I always say yes to LL roles and doing revisions and stuff: no one else will do it to my standards :D

@Juju @Virelai I‘m not a perfectionist or anything, but there’s a few things I learned to do well without much effort and I have trouble accepting that it does take a lot of effort for other people. :thinkless:

Now if I‘d also enjoy all those things that would be all well and good. 😅
