I believe monogamy or something close to it would help one achieve fluency,
which apparently is a wonderful experience judging by the descriptions I've
read -- what a great joy it is to be able to talk, think and dream in one's
own language. That's the main reason why I regret spreading myself too thin.
Half-baked projects that don't get fully developed can't take their creators
to the jhana of fluency.
