Shorthand without much practice

G'day all.
Some of you may recognize me, as I seem to go through periods where I'm really active on this board, and then periods where I don't post for a while. Anyway, onto my question. I was wondering if it would be possible to learn shorthand without a lot of "sit down and study for half an hour" sort of practice. I have a rather full schedule, and I find it difficult to actualy buckle down and study like I probably should. I've been learning simplified for quite a while, but only off and on, and as a result, I've only managed to reach lesson 15 or so. Does anyone have any other ideas about how I could approach this?
