There is a lot of good advice here.
Keep yourself satisfied with daily results and progress. Appreciate that mistakes are part of everyone's process of growth.
I like one time period for my serious achievements (for a simulation) and end the day with things purely for fun and learning. Its a good strategy which will have you reaching goals and making it enjoyable everyday, too.
Much of where you go is exploring in your 3D program and related tools. The best place is right there.
