I am going through one of those unbalanced times or ramping periods as part of a new role. Weekly, I take the time to step back, think about my success philosophy and ensure that:
a) My actions are not busy work, that I am moving the big rocks forward.
b) That I am learning, whether it is internal process, team dynamics, operations or customer interactions.
c) That my ramp has a plateau (Time wise) and will re-balance due to an increase in proficiency.
d) My family know how much I love them, as I am seeing them less. This is not an individual’s change, it is a family change. Afterall, everything I do is for the family – without them my career and business success is irrelevant.
After 3 months in my new role, I see the shape of that ramp – and that is a good thing.
