Not my metric

The new guy I report to (a good guy, really) told me yesterday that part of my performance would be rated by how quickly I accomplished a certain repetitive task. While task X is important, it's not the most important thing I do, at least in the eyes of the people I support.

Another arbitrary metric.

In the past, the line was, "That's not my job."

Now it's, "That's not my metric."
