Default Advice for new judo guys

I've been doing judo for a few weeks now. I have a few months background in BJJ but no experience to the sport beyond that. There's a ton of stuff to absorb early, for me mainly relating to establishing correct posture and positional balance for various throws has been the toughest.

My question to all your experienced judo guys is do you have any general advice for the new guy? I realize everyone learns differently, but are there any pitfalls that I should try to avoid early or areas in which I should really concentrate my focus to get the most out of it?
