- My team is amazing. Really – full of uber-smart, motivated, helpful guys supported by great management, great interface to the business, and very slick, well-oiled processes.
- This was a huge sideways move, so the learning curve has been a similar experience to last year when I started triathlons and had to learn to freestyle without drowning. I love learning new things, definitely feel like I am over the hardest part now, and am trying to contribute to the team effort with as close as I can get to the breakneck speed the other guys do.
- When you really love something, it sucks you in – sometimes too much. Last night I was up until 3am :-? I need to follow the advice Michael Meeks gave me when I asked him for tips on how to deal with being a full-time home-working geek:
Sure – get up at the same time every day; and quit work roughly 9 hours later without fail.
Then you stay sane
- It’s a more solitary lifestyle than my previous role, so I need to make more effort to get out and socialize in the evenings. Actually this could be a good thing because I used to occasionally use “work is quite social” as an excuse for not going out if I was tired.
