Learn English – Idiom for dividing something into steps instead of doing it all at once


I initially thought it's something like "pacing it out", but after googling it that doesn't seem to be the case.


You have a whole bunch of photos and you post them one a day instead
of dumping them all at once.

You may be thinking of "pace yourself":

to try not to do things too quickly so that you have enough energy to be able to complete your task successfully: Pacing yourself and setting achievable goals are the keys to success in this business.
