Good luck. You probably don't need advice but just for the purpose of saying more than "good luck" I'll add to privilege small, daily progress over giant leaps forward. It'll seem manageable and it'll keep you from subconsciously backburner'ing it. Please ignore if that's not how you work or if you, obviously, already knew that.
