Plan. Then plan some more.
Don't just plan in your head. Write it down. Draw pictures. Develop flow charts. Think about the data structures you'll need. Work out rough dataflow diagrams. Think it through. (Given that it's just you working on this project alone, I wouldn't bother with a PERT/CPM analysis.)
Set it aside for a day or two. Read it again. Plan some more.
Time spent planning is never wasted.
