Here are some things I’ve learned about starting a new role:

1. The first couple of months are about listening and learning. 

2. Keep an open mind.

3. Stay focused. 

For example, figure out what you need to be able to perform well. This might be quite practical and literal things like the ability to work somewhere quiet when necessary, a tidy desk, allocating certain tasks to specific times of the day that you’re more likely to be able to execute them well. The first few weeks is a great time to figure these things out.
