The first step in accomplishing anything (except by luck), is deciding exactly what it is that you want. If someone asks you to "create a table", is that enough of a spec? Might you accidentally end up with something that looks good in a living room and can hold coffee cups and magazines well, when what was wanted was something that holds rows and columns of data? Or vice-versa.
The most important step most people don't do is define what they want from a job other than a paycheck. Some go so far as to clarify it to "a paycheck and no BS", but then don't actually define what level and type of "BS" is too much/little. Define industries that you'd want to work in, and ones you'd refuse to work in, and so on.
