    Did my work to the best of my abilities but did not receive that much appreciation from the boss as I expected

    I am working in a private firm. Recently I was made in charge of a project. I did my work to the best of my abilities but did not receive that much appreciation from my boss as I had expected. I am very disheartened after this. What to do in such a situation?

    Hi,

    Friend, do not get disheartened and feel low because of such petty things. You should do any job assigned to you to the best of your abilities for your satisfaction and not to get anyone's appreciation. You will notice that when you put your heart and soul in any job, the you get the best and most importantly, you yourself feel elated and more confident. Not only your confidence is lifted up but also your skills are enhanced and you get an immense satisfaction after completing the task. Isn't this enough..? Boss's appreciation is definitely awaited and desired by all of us, but if your boss doesn't say a few words of appreciation, it should never let your morale down, rather think positively and continue your good work without expecting much from the people around you. If you get appreciated, take those words as "add on" to what you have actually achieved in life and move on and rock on next time as well..

    Thanks,
    Ritz

    Dear you should not worry over this issue because you know that you have been performed well and better what you have expected and you should also feel proud that you was selected a the leader for a project that means your boss know that only you deserve for that post that is why you got that responsibility and you did what was you able for, so first of all remove your frustration and be free from your tensions

    If you feel that you did that best but did not get enough appreciation from your management then you must ask for your right but not directly means you should talk to your manager over this successful project then get the feedback of your manager

    First of all you should go to your manager and congratulate them for the success of this project and talk to them about this project. Ask them that sir please tell me if there was any mistake or any incomplete detail passed by me in that project because I wants to know insufficiency in my work because you are the most experienced person in this office so I wants to learn something more from you and if there was any extra addition left in that project so tell me about that and teach me more about business and what extra I can get from you so your manager will show you that what was left in that project and if you have completed that project without making any mistake then your manager will tell you and praise you over that project and when your manager say that you did not make any type of mistake and finished that task successfully and carefully so you should instantly ask that if I have done my best then why didn't you appreciate me and you have not told me once that I should get something good and more duties after completion of that task then you will get enough respect from your manager and your manager will give you some more responsibilities

    You must be able to talk and face your manager on every issue and task that you get and if you will not talk with your manager and make discussion about business then how will you get appreciation and more jobs to complete that is why you should keep in touch with your manager and know more skills from your manager and always try to provide your best as you did before

    All the best
