I definitely agree with the two above statements. A good way to get started is to look into things you are interested in. And if you do not know what you're interested in yet, just begin digging through the different subjects (etc) until you find something that sutis you.
Many members suggest you begin practicing magick by learning what we all call "the basics". This is always a great way to get started, and give you a chance to study a bit. Type "the basics" up in the search bar and severl forum posts/articles will pop up for you. I think along with the basics, you should work on developing a fundamental and "basic" understanding of magick, it's uses, it's history, etc. It can be very interesting. :)
Definitely check out Newbie Central, the FAQs, Tips, Articles and Forums on the site! (If you haven't already). To get to NC, FAQs and Tips simply scroll down to the bottom left hand corner and look under the "help" area. The articles and forums both have tabs up in the top of the page. Browsing through the articles and forum posts may help you get an idea on what you want to do, and where you want to go in learning specific subjects.
And as always, if you feel you need help or more guidance, don't be afraid to ask. :) Best of luck.
