But one lens and go out and shoot it a lot. Eventually, you will learn what focal lengths you like and don't like.

Take Ian up on his generous offer. He can help you with your first choice of lens.
This is great advice.

I own two lenses, a 6"(150mm) Petzval and a 150/265 convertable Schnieder. I was surprised to find that this has been plenty and that I rarely even convert to 265.
