Are these "tips" getting ridiculous?

Have we talked about how your performance review is a good time to make yourself look good?

Anita Bruzzese, Gannett, advises you try to leverage this review to your strengths.

Pardon me, but isn’t this sort of obvious?

Brian D Poggi, wrote I Am Not Average: How to Succeed in Your Performance Review.

I guess Brian is the expert, but I always advise people to show how you saved or made the company money.

Be specific—examples, numbers.

Poggi says do a PowerPoint.

List places you could do more.

Your goals.

Your suggestions for the year’s objectives.

Poggi says the manager will appreciate you doing his or her work.

I wonder.
