Arguably my #1 weakness is the initial learning curve on localSys. For that reason, My figure-things-out speed would be slower than other guys.
Due to my superior interview performance, I “sometimes” show underwhelming learning curve, depending on the other new hires. In some teams like RTS, Stirt, … some new hires were slower, less motivated, more distracted.
Camp-out — is my advantage, provided I have an engagement honeymoon.
self-independent learning — Ashish mentioned it many times. Not sure how realistic. If I can achieve it, I would have a big-gun, as described in big_gun + laser_gun on localSys
respect — Ashish pointed out independent discovery would win me respect from team members. I can recall many experiences to support it.
virtuous circle — the respect would spur me on.
annual leaves — It’s OK to take some leaves, but if I can spend more time at work in first 3-6 months I have a higher chance of creating the virtuous circle.
Q: At Macq, was the initial 6M ramp-up effective for localSys, GTD?
A: It did help prevent the Stirt mistake. Key is capture of absorbency and burning pleasure, in the engagement honeymoon. In 2015 I didn’t have a lot to capture 😦
A: Consider set-up-to-fail . I would say even with a quick ramp-up, I would still fall below the bar.
A: now i feel 6M is hard to maintain. Realistic honeymoon is 4M, but sometimes it lasts longer.
