Indeed, “very” easy does it.
Or “little by little”…
And when a “little” precedes the word “progress”, then we have a “little progress”. And THAT little progress is much better than no progress at all.

Isn’t Time the great Healer? So, one day at a time, one hour at a time, we are all learning patience.
And if Patience is a saintly Virtue, we might soon see a halo appearing behind his parents…
