To be honest, learning Cyrillic (or any other consistent scripts, like the Japanese kana) is shit easy, and should be the least of your worries.
One night when I was bored I memorized the lowercase Russian alphabet. I was able to recall and write all of them down and pronounce them. I never repeated them since so I forgot them.
Divide them into groups of 6. Focus on the first letter of the first group, drawing it as you pronounce it. Do it over and over again until you feel you've gotten it down, then move on to the second letter. Once you've memorized the second letter, recall and draw the first letter, and then the second letter consecutively. (without cheating) Continue until you've nailed the first group, then move onto the second. Once you've memorized the second group, do the same thing I said earlier, except instead of letters, do it with the groups.
Also, make sure you're learning the correct stroke order, or else your writing will look vastly different.
Eventually you'll be able to recall, draw and pronounce all the lowercase letters. From there on, practice them daily (preferrably every few hours in the beginning, if you have the opportunity) and eventually they should stick.
Then learn the capital letters in the same way, tomorrow. Or a week from now, or a month, or right now. It doesn't matter when you initially memorize it, but you need to make sure to repeat them or else they'll fall out of memory.
It's simple memorization work.
It really saddens me when people are scared away from a language because of it using a different script. For me, that's the funnest part to learn. You should rather worry about learning standard vocabulary and perfecting your grammar which takes much more work and much more time.
