Should I tell my boss that job uncertainty is affecting my ability to do work? If so, how best to explain?
I am a developer working on a contract basis for an organization and manager I like and would like to continue with, and my current contract is about to expire. Unfortunately contracts go through a bureaucratic renewal process; while it's likely I will be renewed, it's not 100% guaranteed and the rate is not yet set. Given these uncertainties, I'm finding it increasingly difficult to concentrate at work and I feel it's affecting my performance. I'm typically a high-performer and don't want my boss to think I'm under-performing for other reasons, so thought I should tell my boss.
