To my way of thinking, nobody can tell you how many hours you should be spending to perfect a language that you would like to learn. For me, the most important thing is your dedication. If you are dedicated to learn, even if you are a busy person, you will find time. :) #justsaying :)

do the right thing even when nobody is watching

It depends actually on your seriousness, sincerity and devotion. If such a thing lacks then it needs long hours and vice versa.

Just enough. Not all hours are equal, one can spend an eternity pretending to learn or one can boil it down into 30 minutes.

It almost sounds like you're saying it's inefficient to study more than 30 min/day.

I'm reading the Malazan Book of the Fallen.

My studies actually average about two hours a day of active study and I spend my free time chatting in between clients. I'm referring to things like two hours of duo lingo not equalling two hours of other more rigorous activities. Not all tasks are equal. One can study inefficiently for however many hours. Time doesn't equal efficiency. Longer or shorter, doesn't matter; depends on what the goal is and how one plans to attain it.
