Keep an Accomplishment Journal

Give yourself credit for your accomplishments and let others know about them too. I read a post about men announcing “I loaded the dishwasher!”. Men often announce any housework, home repairs and other accomplishments. Women seldom do and yet they still do most of the work people take for granted (until it isn’t done). This should change.

10. Keep an accomplishment journal

Keeping a log of your work accomplishments and positive feedback as they come up can make putting together or updating your resume significantly easier. Include as many details as possible so you don’t have to spend time tracking them down later.

Quoted from FastCompany‘s post with resume writing tips.

Don’t just keep track of your big accomplishments, the ones you think are grand enough to remember. Write about the little things, the things you take for granted too.
