Hi Cazbar, welcome to the forums
I would suggest that the best thing you can do is shoot more and more. It's the best way to learn.
However, having a project or similar to aim for is also a good way of getting you to shoot and learn. Are there any particular types of photography you particularly like? If so, try starting with one of those.
If you particularly like wildlife photography (as an example) why not aim to get enough good wildlife photos together to have a photo book printed. Or try landscapes, portraiture or documentary photos.
I did this with a "British Nature" theme which included landscapes and wildlife and I was really pleased when the book arrived and I saw my photos in print and bound as a book.
Picking a theme doesn't have to mean any particular style of photo either. Common suggestions are a particular colour, or "shadows" etc.
Whatever you choose it will make you plan more, and think more about your shots both when you take them and afterwards.
