Thread: Appraisal comments and how to deal with them

Hi all. I am a second year PhD student looking for some advice after recently receiving comments from my appraisal monitors for my 16 month review.

First of all, I will say that they are mostly positive, my supervisor rated my progress as good, so deep down I know I am not drastically behind. However, my monitors did suggest that action was needed and raised one point for improvement on which this was based upon. I tend to be a worrier, so this has left me a bit concerned and I am worrying about achieving it and feeling like I have failed somehow. Maybe it is in part imposter syndrome, where I feel like this is proof that I am not good enough, despite the positive comments, but it has dented my confidence a bit.

Has anyone got any advice on how it is best to cope with this and how to alleviate my concerns? Or whether I should be concerned?
