Unless you made the 8 greatest beers of all time, there is a LOT of learning to go. It took me 8 Pale Ales alone to start honing in on my recipe and 15 Pale Ale brews later, I'm still far from where I think it needs to be. But it's pretty darn good!
And that is only one style. Take what you like or what your friends like and try to make it better. I think my Steam Beer would rank very highly out there, and it took about 12 brews to get it where I liked it. But I brew for my tastes and what my circle enjoys. Part of my next venture is to enter competitions as was previously stated. I'm very interested to see what others think outside of my circle, good and bad.
Not sure how many of those 8 are lagers, but that's years of learning alone.
Like Jason said, start picking off styles, understanding them through your reading, and then making the best one possible to your taste. Then you get in to water treatment, PH levels, yeast management, culturing, step mashing, decoctions, etc...
IMHO, take a break, enjoy your brew and let the bug come back to bite you when you are ready. Stay active in the forum and learn from the guys that have been here a while. I learn something new every day
