Scared or Lazy?: Need to Get it Together

It so incredibly sad that I can't pull my sh*t together to pass this exam. Am I scared of something or just lazy?

I have the materials, the support (thanks #twudygroup) and I can make the time. Its like I have more excuses than motivation at this point.

At first I really NEEDED a new job. I recently accepted great position in the field I really wanted to a career in. Part of the conditions of accepting the offer was to get either the CPA or CIA designation within 18 months of being hired. I now have a deadline but absolutely no drive.

And, I am really tired of studying the same thing over and over again because I've stop and started so many times. There is no perfect situation or time for anything, I really just need to get my sh*t together, study and pass.

Setting up the test date before I started studying made a difference for me.  I knew that I needed to be ready by that date, so it would drive me.  Of course there were times that I wasn't very interested in the material, but I kept thinking about exam day.  I needed to know the material without any help so that drove me to continue studying when I would feel unmotivated.  You never know when you'll get your second wind.

Hi Gina!  Congrats on the job and having the tools/support.  This post by Natalia really resonated with me about the same dilemma you posted here.  Check it out:
