Is anyone else out there struggling with burnout and study fatigue?
A college professor of mine once told me “you know you’re ready to take a test when you’ve studied to the point where you don’t care if you pass or fail.” Believe it or not, that barameter has always served me well. Through college, law school, bar exam (yes, I was once a lawyer), and Level I, I have always relied on that simple bit of advice.
For what it is worth, this is likely the most grueling exam for whic I have ever sat. I’ve spent hours working through the material, and answered countless questions. (I haven’t tracked the hours, but I’d be suprised with they were less than the target 250.) Looking forward, I can likely power through it a bit more this weekend, and ann hour or two a day next week; however, I am quickly reaching the point where, frankly, I don’t care what my score is: I just don’t want to stare at this stuff anymore! Anyone else feel this way yet?
Here’s my point: we can always do “more” but when one reaches the point of severely deminishing returns, its best to go play golf – which is exactly what I intend to do tomorrow!
