The first obstacle is the new job, and so far so good. I'm fortunate that this new job is in the same business area as my last, so I am familiar with a lot of the lingo and jargon. I've also been able to draw on my experience and actually make useful suggestions from the first 2/3 days, rather than first 2/3 months!
There are always teething issues with a new job, but overall the job move has actually greatly helped reduce stress, rather than cause more. There was stress around sorting out all the paperwork and background check documents, but the actual working day is far less hectic for me right now than it was a week ago. Again, this is natural with any job change, but is not something I had thought about. For me new job = lots of stress.
I think we can mark the 'new job' obstacle as successfully passed to some extent. Logistically the hard parts are done. I am also set for 2 weeks paternity leave soon also, so no key deliverables are being placed on me right now.
Overall, it has worked out nicely!
