Yes, agree. If music is your hobby and not your profession, then it's all about the time. You don't have much.
Tautology? If you mean professional "classical" guitarist then yes you may have to follow the somewhat masochistic "correct" progression through the conventional material.
Personally I think many beginners are easily put off by this route (I know I was).
Instead (as well) I think it's helpful to spend a lot of time in the comfort zone learning to play simple stuff well, rather than difficult stuff badly.
Just an example but I've just discovered "The_Nonpareil Guitar Folio" (W Stahl) (thanks to Marieh
on another thread) and there is masses of other entertaining and interesting easy material which gets ignored by the serious would-be "classical" guitarists.
Start with nursery rhymes (hymns, light music, whatever turns you on) and more importantly - keep going back to them!
To quote Leendavid89 above "Playing guitar should be about beautiful music and not gymnastics. Music is the goal."
