This week, we discuss the ins-and-outs of writing an effective self review: What should you talk about? How important is it? What does a bad self review look like? As always, we share our cool things of the week, this time including a new provider for Marshall's favorite esport, and a movie that is "cool" or...something.

Kevin Gutowski asks: "What do you think of self assessments? Do you do them at your current job? How often do you do them? What do they look like? What are some of the questions that you answer? Are they a part of how you can get a raise? What makes a good assessment experience or a bad one? I wanna know the deets so I can compare notes."
- We talked about performance reviews in episode 279 over one year ago.
- Brian has also tweeted about self reviews with his framework for writing them.
Brian shared 6 Underground, a not-that-great movie that he lasted 20 minutes watching. How far will you make it?
- Joel Califa + replies felt similar.
