“How am I doing?”

The post title was the question asked by the late Ed Koch. When he was mayor of New York city Ed would ask the public that question. People would answer. Knowing how people are I think Ed would have gotten an opinion without a question, but the simple gesture of asking that question may have created an environment in such a busy and hectic city that made everyone feel involved.

I am not sure where you work or what you do, but I am going to go out on a limb and say you have a boss and a customer. If you do have a boss and a customer you really have two bosses. When was the last time you had a career  check up? Have you spoke with both of the bosses and asked how you are doing?

You may be surprised when you get the results. If your boss is any good at what he or she does you shouldn’t be surprised at what he or she says, but the customer, (who when you think about it is everyone’s boss)  they may surprise you. You will never know unless you ask.
