learning

I've been working on a project where I've needed to relearn one bit of software (Final Cut Express) and learn another (LiveType). In the beginning, I was overwhelmed with the possibilities - a creative project, an approaching deadline, two new programs - each can do so much - what should I do or learn first?

Eventually, time ran out, and I decided to make a rough version of the project, using Final Cut only - knowing that it would not be exactly right, and that parts of it would change later.  That let me breathe, and focus on one set of skills at a time. Once the rough version was complete, I had a sense of what I still needed to learn, and what might be fun to add from LiveType, and then I could focus my attention on those particular skills, learn what I needed in an evening, and complete the semi-final version of the project.
