Learning data science is a marathon not a sprint, therefore, take your time. Nobody can be a data scientist in a month or 6 months unless you have a math or computer science degree. However, learning data science with a solid plan will make it easy for you to learn at least the basics of data science. Even though I am not good at making step-by-step plans, you can try my plan and see if it works for you.
