I don't think I could've made it this far by diving in head first. Like it or not, I have to get work done, and when I couldn't get a motion to work right or didnt know the best way to do something, I could fall back on sublimes regular tools.

That's exactly my point! Take it easy and don't go hardcore from the first day. You'll get annoyed right away and you'll go back to Sublime Text in 10 mins.
