When Paying Bills is Better than Studying REG

REG studying is falling way behind due to my lack of motivation surrounding this process. If you do recall, I been at this for quite a while and have plenty attempts under my belt, thus the de-motivation feeling is kicking in.

I tell myself I need to “Just suck it up, Buttercup” and get this done once and for all. Alas, my excuses continue to overcome my motivation to start a study session, etc.

I feel like this is a common feeling among many candidates. “Oh, this pile of bills has been sitting here for a month, might as well go through them now,” or “Maybe I will try cooking a fancy and intricate meal for supper after work.” Everything seems better than studying.

On the less depressing side of things, I am making progress with NINJA MCQ. I am finally in the adaptive learning phase.

The tax questions are starting to make more sense, which is conveniently just in time for tax season…. The corporate tax rules are still like shooting fish in a barrel. I plan to nail down these concepts hopefully by the end of the week.

I really, really want to take REG by the end of January. I assume that if I actually schedule the test, then I will be more motivated to get studying and stop failing. I will purchase that NTS soon….

Just a quick update this time as I been moving really slow. Hopefully, next post won’t be so depressing!
