Each month, start sending your boss a half page email that describes:
- Your five most significant accomplishments from the prior month
- Your five highest priorities for the current month.
Send it as close to the end of the month as possible and, no, you don’t need your manager’s permission to do it. Just start. Most managers will appreciate the information as just about all managers struggle to keep up with what everyone is working on.
