I have never owned a dog and would eventually like to. What do I need to know?

I love dogs. I love my friends' dogs. I would love to get a dog in the next few years. I think it would improve my quality of life to have one. But I do not want to get a dog and then fuck him or her up because I haven't thought of something important that a seasoned dog owner would know about.
I work a 9 to 5 and I live in NYC, which obviously complicates things significantly.
I'd love to hear from seasoned dog owners and especially from people who got their first dogs as adults. How did you adjust your lifestyle? What mistakes did you make? What do I need to know? What resources should I consult? I'm starting from a baseline of basically zero here, although I have dogsat on many occasions before.
