How to move from the tutorial to your own project

When should I start reading/watching tutorials and doing some work?

Isn’t it an easy task to follow the step-by-step instructions for IKEA furniture to build your own furniture from scratch? Oh yeah.

However, if you never start, then you will never reach your goal.
