This is a challenging part for me too Scott. I feel caught in between two competing ideas: Be objective and fulfill the requirement, or be descriptive and make your appraisal dinstinguishable from others. It sounds like both pieces of advice from Mike and Andrew allow for you to do a nice balance of both, and in Andrew’s piece you make it easy by using what other people have already said about you. Chances are, those comments will be descriptive and truthful!
The only useful tip I have Scott, is always link what you have accomplished to a skill or skillset that you believe you possess. If you completed something, how did you do it, and with what? That is the question I always ask myself. If I can answer it, I am showing off my talents and explaining how effective/efficient I have been when I have figures or tangibles to go with it. Other than that, I guess you are left with your notes, and varying degress of story telling! Good luck.
