new rider/learning mechanics any tips?

I just started riding in 2011, I'm 26 years old and have little to no experience working on anything with an engine. I own a 1980 Honda 250 XL, recently i just changed my front brake cable and it was easier than i imagined. As soon as I replaced that my front headlight stopped working. It seems as soon as I fix one thing, something else goes wrong. Is this normal? And also how do I go about trying to fix something with pretty much zero knowledge? I've been reading a lot on these forums as well as others but the lingo is way over my head. Any help is much appreciated
