"Endowed with the true blessings of the world, I can only strive forward to become a more lenient, more open-minded, and more inquisitive person. But before all that, I need to perfect the art of making pizzas."

My question is how I can effectively transition between the sentences. "But before all that" is noted as "inappropriate colloquialism" by Grammarly. I don't intend to use an overly formal transition here, since the tone is changing to a lighthearted one. How can I accomplish this?

Also, for the first sentence, is it a good idea to use parallelism like that? Suggestions are appreciated.

Your original sentence

But before all that, I need to perfect the art of making pizzas.

can more simply be put as

But first, I need to perfect the art of making pizzas.

Your second question of

Endowed with the true blessings of the world, I can only strive forward to become a more lenient, more open-minded, and more inquisitive person.

might be said as

Endowed with the true blessings of the world, I strive to become a more lenient, more open-minded, and more inquisitive person.

Eventhough you maybe "endowed with the true blessings of the world", there are probably more than just the three qualities that you mention with which you might better yourself.
