the three best advices to mix your own tracks

What are the three best advices that you would give to a beginning engineer who wants to mix his own EDM or Electronic tracks (or in general, any Electronic track)?

And second, my curiosity... what are the steps that you make to get your mixes so loud but so full of room and movement?? Most of EDM tracks sound squashed, but you always manage to get high loudness without squashing sound.
What is your secret?

1- Try your best to dont over mix the track during the writing/sound design process .

2- Try to take a break between production and Mixing, detach yourself for 3/4 days, dont listen the rough mix and just attach the mix focusing on the main element first and little details later

3 - Dont reference other mastered tracks too soon on the process, trust your instinct first.

As far the perception of a dynamic mix with very hi RMS is a combination of various decisions on the mixing process, usually a loud master is a translation of s vey balanced mix, so avoid the annoy smiley face eq and try to keep a good balance level and eq wise..

If you were doing a master for a vinyl cut, would you approach things differently?

Yes, shave low ends under 40hz, make sure its mono till 200hz and shave the top over 15k... this is for final stage on mastering of course
