Take your time when it comes to learning Islam, but do not be too passive either
Application of knowledge is very important and knowledge without application is meaningless
Search for a study group to understand the message of Qur'an and engage in a collective study with the help of a qualified learned teacher who will keep you motivated and assist you in your learning process
Studying collectively will not only increase your udnerstanding of Islam, but also help you cultivate bonds of friendship. The fellowship with other believers will keep you motivated, strengthen your faith, and intensify your love for Qur'an - which eventually leads you towards your own spiritual growth.
