You can start with Coursera's quiz: https://www.coursera.org/career/assessment/data-science
At the end of the 7 questions you'll get your answer for your career. Then, if you scroll down, you'll see the courses that are recommended for you. I assure you that I haven't find any course here at Coursera that sucks. At least not until today. So, go ahead and choose one!
At every course, you'll do, at least, one project. Don't stay to your instructor's solution. Try and make it better. 89% is good but 92% is better. And it will be YOUR achievement!
When you'll finish the Specialization try what you've learned on your project. Let's say that you want to do NLP. Find a book that you love, count the words, find the connection between the characters, visualize it...
The roadmap that works for me is: Study, play with what I've learned, study, experiment, study, explore and always but always have fun! If you don't have fun doing it then stop it. Change to something else. Only when you have fun, you'll love it, you'll spend enough time for it and you'll have time for yourself aso.
Please keep in mind that this is MY roadmap. Try and find yours. There isn't only one roadmap that will take you to your target.
