I have two pieces of advice for you.
(1) Learn the minimum amount of knowledge needed for language learning.
(2) Learn strategically.

The most important thing for a busy businessperson when learning Japanese is to clarify their own goals and create a study plan based on those goals. It is not effective to buy a textbook for beginners that you find on Amazon without any clear reason or rationale, or to take lessons from a Japanese person who has no Japanese teaching skills just because you know him/her. It is most likely a waste of money and time.
It takes longer to learn Japanese than it does to climb the world’s highest mountain. However, while most people make a plan for climbing a mountain, few people make a plan for learning Japanese. I believe this is the reason why so many people give up on learning Japanese.

(1) Learn the minimum amount of knowledge needed for language learning.
Information that is convenient or favorable to you is not necessarily correct. I was once involved in a level check test for a blogger who claimed that everyone could learn Japanese in three months. One of our experienced instructors who is also a certified ACTFL-OPI tester interviewed the person and determined that his level was second from the bottom out of ten. He could say a few phrases, but could hardly answer the instructor’s questions. It didn’t seem to matter to him whether or not everyone could really learn Japanese language in three months. His real aim was to increase the page views of his blog, generate affiliate income, and sell merchandise.
I think it would be great if we could master a language in three months. However, in reality, it takes much more time than that, as explained in another page.

(2) Learn strategically.
There is a saying in the Art of War by Sun Tzu, “If you know your enemy and know yourself, in a hundred battles you will never be defeated”. This would also apply to learning Japanese.
First, understand the characteristics of the language and the key points for learning Japanese. Then, after accurately understanding the resources you can invest, set a goal that is highly feasible. Then, create a study plan that suits your needs. If you do all these things, you will increase your chances of mastering Japanese.
I hope that my information will become similar to an art of war for Japanese learners
