I got a very nice compliment from Mr Dobalina today.

We're going through the personal commitments we have to set at work for the year, and I mentioned to him that I was having trouble coming up with ones that related to my role. When he questioned what I meant, I explained that I don't believe that in my job I can change or help with the production.

He looked me straight in the eye and said "When you were on holidays, I noticed you weren't here. No, I really noticed. When you are here I know that any work I give you will get done, and I never have to double check that any reports I need for meetings will be done before the meetings start. While you were gone I was constantly chasing people and reminding people to get things done. You might not realise it, but you make a difference."

And that my friends, is the nicest thing someone has said to me all year.
