CPA Exam: Staying on Track during the Holidays
Stephanie is a weekly Club 75 Blogger as she documents her journey through the CPA Exam.
Last week I didnÂt blog. It was my birthday that week and I had SO much going on. I was proud of myself that I managed to get through about half a chapter in Roger CPA Review so IÂm really not behind.
My plan (the plan that has been revised one billion times) is now to get through all of the videos this week and then review until my test date. That will probably include re-watching some areas IÂm weak in, and since IÂve drawn my studying out so long, I will probably struggle in some areas IÂve forgotten.
During the holidays itÂs hard to stay on track in many parts of my life. In my health, in my studying and at work itÂs easy to get sidetracked by plans of big meals, gifts, and family gatherings, but itÂs not worth throwing hard work away for one day.
Someone said something so true to me a few days ago about the holidays: ÂItÂs a holiDAY, not a holiWEEK and not a holiMONTH.Â This is SO true!!! ItÂs so easy to get wrapped up in the holidays and forget about everyday life that chugs on and lose sight of that, but this year I am going to try not to do that.
The CPA journey is hard, but I donÂt want to make it harder by letting the holidays derail me. Yesterday I got off work early and I rushed home and watched some CPA videos before my family took me out for a belated birthday dinner. Then I came home and watched more videos.
I hope everyone had a great holiday!!
