On second thought… you can always watch a movie and just be done with it after 90 or 120 minutes.
Maybe I’d choose or recommend something where…
- you feel you really like/need to get an overview or grip on the basics first - though couldn’t invest that time yet. Something you think you need to make a larger “upfront” investment to build a solid “foundation”.
- …which you can then build upon, i.e. improve upon or refine your abilities in over shorter, more regular learning and dealing with the subject.
For instance, I’ve found it hard to really “get into” learning and understanding a new language by just poking into it for a couple of minutes every day. Or cooking. If you haven’t cooked before, and haven’t developed a routine for some of the techniques, it’s a tedious process, things can you wrong, and frankly, I don’t find it much fun.
Personally, I might read up on standup comedy (or, again, on a language).
