Although I no longer frequently pull up perl (i go fer ruby intead) it is always a good option to 
find a task that you would like to do for yourself, and then try to tackle it. Whether's it a cgi 
script so you can your system statistics of your home linux server on the web, or a automated backup 
script which burns a cd everynight at midnight, you'll find yourself learning quicker which a task 
you WANT to work for you, then trying to learn a task that something else wants to work for them.
