Workflow Tips?

I’m just starting with producing music with a DAW.
I’m having trouble finding help and information about workflow within the DAW.
I need a tutorial that instructs how to progress through a song project without getting bogged down with mixing, figuring out plugins and virtual instruments along the way. Honestly, some kind of “workflow map” would be invaluable to me. An efficient stragtegy of, “first do this, then that and don’t forget to do that…” Different personal styles considered of course.
Thanks for listening!

I’d recommend you watch some of the How To Make courses from our Artists - they all work in different unique ways and you will definitely pick up workflow tips
