Perhaps one needs Elijah the prophet to reveal himself to one and quickly teach him the material - or perhaps through other various mystical ways it will happen.
The authority told him that he studied just two chapters of Jewish law (Shulchan Aruch and the like) a day! "Just two chapters a day?" the student asked. "Yes!" replied the authority!
In the book of Proverbs - Chapter 17 Verse 24, the verse reads:
"Wisdom is in front of one who has understanding; but the eyes of the fool are at the ends of the earth."
Rashi - the most famous of all commentators and the "brother" of Torah as Rabbi Nachman speaks about him - says regarding the fool's comment:
"Wisdom is not to be found readily available to me for it is far from me. How ever will I learn the order of Nezikin (Tractates dealing with laws of damages) which consists of 30 chapters, Tractate Keilim - 30 chapters, Tractate Shabbat - 30 chapters. But for the wise man this is something simple! Today he learns 2 chapters and tomorrow another 2, and he says 'so did those before me always do likewise!'"
IT CAN BE DONE... AND EVERYBODY CAN MEET WITH SUCCESS.
This famous story regarding one of the martyrs in the Merkaz HaRav attack a few weeks ago certainly shares the importance of regular learning and success!
Why not join in a "simple" program for a start. Study just 2 chapters of the Prophets and the Writings each day and complete the entire Torah Nevi'im and Ketuvim in just one year! It is the absolute foundation for ALL Torah learning. The keys to everything - from Talmud to Midrash to Kabbalah. Without it, one lacks the very foundation of Torah - with it, one has the ultimate springboard to "flying in the depths of the sea of Torah."

WHAT OUR SAGES SAY ABOUT COMPLETING THE TORAH IN IT'S ENTIRETY
"Attempt to go through all the sacred books in the course of your lifetime. You will then have visted every place in the Torah.
"The very rich constantly travel from land to land. They spend huge amounts just so that they should be able to boast that they have been to some faraway place. They consider it a sign of high status if, for example, they can boast that they have been to Warsaw. You should likewise travel everywhere in the Torah.
"In the Future Life you will then be able to boast that you have visited every place in our sacred literature. At that time, you will remember everything you have ever learned."
- Rabbi Nachman of Breslov. Rabbi Nachman's Wisdom 28 (Sichos HaRan 28.)
