I think with anything related to personal development is about comfort zone management. Being too comfortable one can feel bored, too outside ones comfort zone one may feel out of their depth. I'm sure there's more to this down the rabbit hole of psychology. However I found learning about motivation and striking the right balance of extending myself has truly helped keep me pushing forward at a steady pace. In the end do projects that are motivate you whilst incorporating learning as you go. So pick a project that you know is possible, that you can achieve if you put the work and effort in, and that the outcome of it will be as you expect. I think even the perfectionist in you will find that satisfying.
I admire your hard work for learning new technologies, but I would definitely recommend you to go out there, find internships and then learn by doing. There is not too much you can learn just from the tutorials, there are other important factors that you need to be a good programmer, you need to communicate, and do projects according to the liking of the client/project manager.
I would say it again, go out there and find internships to gain experience.
