start with the basics.
learn the tool box, shortcut key channel box etc
this way when u r doing a tut u do not get lost or confused when the author uses a tool u have never seen or dunno where it is.
then try to focus on a specific topic instead of doing too many things at once; i.e. modeling, dynamics,animation,rendering/lighting

good luck
and welcome to SM
