If you are relatively young and carefree, you almost owe it to yourself to delve into things intensely, as you'll have a more difficult time trying to do that when you get older and have more demands on your time.
I just saw that you are 14. This is the perfect time to attack this problem. Get it over with so that you can reap the rewards of knowing the fingerboard.
This is standout advice from Larry!
I was 14 (or 15?) when I learned where ALL
my notes were.
Learning it relatively young helped in more ways than I can possibly even fathom.
