comment What is a way to become good in anything i do?
Welcome to Personal Productivity! Yes, you can improve your learning skills, for example by using mind-mapping, mnemonics or speed-reading to make learning more effective. I suggest you browse through the various tags (e.g. learning and self-learning) and related questions and answers on this site, or alternatively read one of the many books on this topic Note that improving your learning efficiency, doesn't automatically mean you will be good in everything you learn.

@AlexLeonov I disagree that this is a duplicate of 'One hour a day or 4 continuous hours a week for an activity?', although it is a thin line. This question asks for 'evidence' whereas the other question seems to ask for suggestions/personal experiences. The answers on the other question are not backed up with scientific evidence which would be needed here in my opinion.

comment One hour a day or 4 continuous hours a week for an activity?
A problem with small time intervals is that it can be less effective. It can take time to really mentally focus on the task you started. Some researchers have even found that it takes about 23 minutes to regain focus after a distraction. However, I've also heard that after 40 minutes focus tends to drop, so there probably is an optimum length somewhere in between.

comment Why is most work unpleasant?
Welcome to Personal Productivity. Whether work is pleasant or not is very subjective. You might want to rephrase your question to avoid it being closed as being "too subjective"

comment How shall I study now…?
I agree with user1013159. You definitely need to get more sleep. If you don't sleep for at least 7 hours your performance will go down. Also, I think some of the tips I gave in this answer will help.
