Coincidentally, I recently realized around review time my manager does not have any recollection of the things that I did well during the year. I started updating my yearly goals (we use "SuccessFactors") with things that I've done well, improved the process on or saved the company money by doing on my own as they happen. I think that that a manager should be doing that if they are interested/care but it is really my responsibility. In the last so many years I think that it's become evident that you are your best advocate (and should be).
