I've been at my new job for two months now, and I'm loving it!
The first month was really just about getting my bearings – figuring out who everyone was, what they did, and what I did. The second month has been about getting into the flow of work and making sure my awesome team has everything they need to get on with the business of regeneration.
I don't think I truely appreciated how stressful my previous job was until I left. With the benefit of two months of distance between me and Synapsys, I can see more clearly how difficult it had become to work there. My current job is busy, but nothing like the kind of craziness I dealt with every day at Synapsys. I would walk away from my desk each day feeling like I hadn't even made a chink in the mountain ahead of me. And then there wild be a new, bigger mountain the next day!
It's been challenging to get a crash course in a whole new subject matter, but also really interesting. What started out sounding like a different language is starting to make sense. And the staff at Regenerate Christchurch are genuinely committed to what they are trying to do.
I am so proud of what we've already achieved, and we have so many more adventures ahead. I can't wait!
