Watch me beat procrastination; Watch me stay on track

I am not much of a blogger but I decided to share my battle with the CPA exam.  I started off using Bisk in 2010 and have taken the exam off and on…changing material…changing sections.  The only thing that didn’t change was my failing scores…and the fact that I was not studying the way that I needed to in order to pass the exam.  It took a lot for me to realize that it wasn’t NASBA and it wasn’t the software.  It was my procrastination and inability to stay focused and stay on track.

At the beginning of 2013 I made my resolution to put my bad study habits behind me and become disciplined in my studies.  I am currently studying for REG which I will be taking on April 13th and I have been using my outlook calendar (use whatever works best for you…I’m visual) to meet my goal.  I’m a bit of a night owl…after putting my son to bed… 

Just before writing this blog I saw the inspirational quote on the cpa exam club’s facebook page (liked & shared it) and it resonated deep within me.  “Watch me” were the key words that really made me motivated to stay up tonight to type this blog and get some much needed Yaeger material (I really like Phil’s teaching for visual learners like myself) as well as put in another hour of studies. 

The quote – “There are so many people out there who will tell you that you can’t”….this also applies to us…thinking that we can’t pass the exam ….but we all can… and we all will.  The following lines came to me immediately as I thought about “watch me” and the CPA exam:

“Watch me win this material”
“Watch me study & stay on track”
“Watch me pass”
“Watch me….Ms. CPA”

Good Luck to all those that are now beginning their journey with the exam and for those who have been struggling like I have…keep your head up…don’t procrastinate and stay focused.

Thanks for sharing these quotes.  So much of this exam is persistence and discipline, and you have both.  Seems like you are right on track to pass REG on the 13th.
