Ask lots of questions, keep learning. Don't let roadblocks prevent you from moving forward; if you get stuck, get a fresh perspective by stepping back, possibly to both review what you know and to give your mind a chance to reset. Talk to others and ask more questions. Insight from others around you who've either been in your shoes or are trusted colleagues who can be a sounding board can really help in moments like those.
