I'm writing to ask whether current TT faculty have any advice about preparing for the tenure track, in the 6 months or so before the clock starts (I'm a postdoc right now, and would love to get any "jump" that I can…). In other words, is there anything you can advise that you wish you'd done/did do prior to the semester beginning, which made the transition easier? I am nervous! (my job: I'll be teaching 1-2 courses during my first semester; starting up a research program; maybe doing some supervision; etc.).
