I would like to talk briefly about projects that may feel daunting. Sometimes you will come across what I call a mountain of footage. 70+ hours of raw footage can feel extremely overwhelming at times. What I can suggest is don't look up at the mountain!!!
Selects are our best friend as editors so just keep making your selects and boiling down the footage to a more manageable size. All of a sudden you have finished 20 hours, then 40 hours and before you know it you will be at the top of your mountain smiling. Just keep your head down and live in the moment. :D
