    Welcome..

    i think depends on what sort of person you are and how you learn best. some learn best by exploring and hands-on, while some learn by reading the manual first, etc etc..

    no matter what you do, just enjoy the shooting process.
    Life is short, so shoot more!

    Whats most important is the following:

    580EX
    Ultra wide angle(14L f2.8)
    Fisheye (Samyang 8mm)
    Telephoto(70-200L f2.8 IS II USM)
    Fast primes (85L f1.2; 135L)
    Macro (180L f3.5)
    Super Telephoto (800mm f5.6 IS)
    Teleconverters
    Battery grip and extra batteries for 550D

    ALL in your 160L + 38L DRY CABINETS

    Once you get hold of all these, you are ready for the world.
