Any tips for a beginner on magick?

Probably the number one tip I have is to get a good grounding in things outside of magic. A liberal arts BA is ideal, but not practical for everyone. Barring that, read widely in philosophy, religion, science, and the arts. The second tip is to develop a BS sensor; you’ll need it. Don’t forget to train it on yourself periodically. At the same time, don’t dismiss too much just because it sounds silly to you; sometimes the stuff that sounds silly is pretty useful. The last thing is to train your memory. At some point I intend, knock wood, to write a book on the role of memory in magic. It’s more important than most people realize.
