Question you should be asking yourself at this stage is "What would I love to program? Web applications? Distributed systems? Front end? Database? Mobile?"
Once you have that identified, you can move on to identifying the learning material.

I think, you are talking about HFDP - head first design pattern . there is no harm to read about design pattens, since you have good experience in programing you can go for it

program- problem solving, problem comes in different flavor . you cant apply same logic to all problems. you need different patterns to different problems. however what ever you are facing problem now, somebody could already faced, and solved successfully by applied a pattern . so it is wise to read their patterns first before inventing your own pattern
