The great thing about you is your ability of self-assessment. Now's a great time to use it, especially at the office. Before you sniff around your boss's desk, ask yourself, do you deserve it? If you're constantly overwhelming your supervisor with problems without solutions, chances are, they're not impressed. Before you slither into management's office with the issue du jour, come up with your own answers. Don't always rely on the boss to solve your snafus.
