If we could recommend only one piece of advice, it would be to chunk it out. Take whatever is overwhelming you or scaring you or confusing you and break it down into pieces that you can deal with. Then you can zoom in, one piece at a time. With each that you solve or better understand, you’ll feel more confident and encouraged to take on the next one. It’s simple. And it works for so many things, like planning, sticking to your plan, procrastinating, and adapting to change.
