I would work on staying focused more than worrying about how many minutes or hours you're practicing. 15 minutes of solid focus is better than 2 hours of noodling around (although some noodling can be a good thing).

If you're hitting a wall with something, move on to something else, or change up whatever it is you're practicing. If it's scales and you're getting sick of them, perhaps change the rhythm. Or maybe instead of practicing scales to develop technique, transcribe or read out of a book a lick that you really like, and practice playing it SUPER cleanly.

I think that you should vary what you practice, otherwise it turns into a chore, so have some goals in mind, but find different ways of working towards those goals to keep yourself on your toes and keep yourself interested.

I hope that helps!
