What tips do you have for someone about to embark on their first year of postgraduate study?

I just finished a four year Arts/Science degree in English and Geology. I've now just started an honours year in Geology. This will involve about two months of course work (separate components including field trips around the place) and then spending the rest of the year on my project. The project is looking at zinc isotopes in tree leaves, hoping to find a relation to ore bodies under cover.
So, for the first time ever I'll be working on a huge project that takes many months, covers many different aspects, and will result in a nice juicy thesis. What did you do/wish you did that helped when you were in a similar situation?
