Often understanding why something is done a certain way can often help.
Set yourself a project goal, make it something you don't currenly know how to do. It's okay to google your way through it but just remember when you copy/paste code from forums etc. try understand what the code is doing. Look up the functions and what they do.

Learn from each project you build and improve on it, you will only get better as a result.
Alway remain inquisitive
