So, I'm trying to get back into practising guitar, but I can't find a way to get progress, while enjoying my guitar all the same
I have a Chromatic scale exercise 1-2-3-4 and all 24 variations,
to do for a warm up and finger strength,
but I really don't know where to go from there to get better?
Suggestions?

Just sit down and jam for bit, with friends or with iTunes, CDs, w/e. That will teach you a lot more than exercises.

Other than that, what I sometimes do is completely change my picking technique. Like I will do all upstrokes or downstrokes, or start on an upstroke or w/e. Economy picking and sweeping are good practice as well.

playing by yourself is like masturbating, sure it feels great, but it's nothing compared to the real deal.

Learn how to spell "practice" first. That should help.

Be sure to practice everything slowly first before you speed it up.

but I have a set schedule when I practice and have it all organized on little word chart. what I do with my routine is spread the boring between the fun sections. here are the categories I organize everything into:

Technique

Chords/Rhythm
Scales/Arpeggios

Music Reading
Ear Training

Repertoire
Improvisation

Music Theory
Music History/Misc Studies

I do at least one category out of each little block everyday and am getting great results from it. Not to mention I also log and keep a diary of what I did each day.
