I have made a career change from IT software developer to software developer in mechatronics. Though I am familiar and confident with the programming aspect of the job scope, I am not yet completely familiar with the mechanical system especially and also some of the electrical systems.
My managers know I am new to this field and have given the first month to get used to the machines and the environment and to read the documentation. Mostly I am concentrating on learning. I know the best idea is to learn the unknown things quickly by asking my superiors and quzzing myself. But sometimes, when I see the things I do not know, I become demotivated. How can I be successful and motivated in this situation?
You can take this as a generic question, though what I have asked here is a specific domain related question.
