I talked to my boss today. It wasn’t very hard, and he had some brilliant ideas, as usual. What made it easier is that I had something to tell him that he didn’t know. 2 years ago

How I did it: I figured out that it is never dangerous to talk to my boss, that he's kind and mild and helpful and very clever.
But figuring that out did not make it easier at all. I still couldn't talk to my boss unless it was a dire emergency. Talking to him usually left me winded and it took some time to recover.
Then I started using anti-anxiety medication, and suddenly the problem went away. Partly I no longer needed to fear the resulting exhaustion after the meeting, and partly my productivity went up abruptly so that I had more things to show him that I'm proud of. Read how I did it… 2 years ago
Blimey! Now the University wants me to sign a document that says I promise to talk to my boss. (Well, not just me, all postgraduate students, just to be clear about it. But they want me to sign it.) 2 years ago
Today I told a kind of boss that I could not do something that I had said I would. The result was not encouraging. 3 years ago
I have just talked to my boss. I walked into his office and asked advice. It didn’t hurt. In fact it was very helpful, and he spotted my problem after a few minutes of thought, and he was very kind about it.
It is not he or anything about him that makes it difficult. 5 years ago
Ha! How did this get on my list? Me? Talk to my boss? Whatever would I say to him? I’ve always gotten by without it. If he wants to talk to me he knows where to find me. 5 years ago
