Savvy Tip: Write Down Your Big Wins

Time passes so quickly, doesn't it? Before you know it, it's performance evaluation time again. Here's a tip for you: write down your big wins as they happen over the year. It doesn't matter if it's in Excel, Google Docs, or a plain notebook, start keeping track of your accomplishments. That way when you're pushing a raise, you'll be able to easily whip out the detailed facts and be able to make a stronger case of why you deserve one. After all, memories can fail, and it's easy to forget certain achievements over the course of a year.

The best piece of advice I ever read on this topic was to create a "kudos" folder in your email. Whenever you get an acknowledgment of your excellent contributions, copy that email into this folder - you'll have a record of what your contributions were for the year, and what's even better is that the praise doesn't come directly from your mouth. (Also very helpful in offices that use 360 degree reviews - it's a good reminder of who might offer you a favorable review from the past year.)
