CPA Exam Blogger Philip: BURN OUT!!!

Philip is a resident of the great state of New York, but has inspired and motivated fellow Roger students through online forums and social media platforms across the globe. Philip has already passed FAR and AUD, and is now gearing up for BEC.

So here it is.  I’ve been pushing real hard to complete the FAR and AUD exams, but now I’m extremely in burn out mode.  Its kind of hard to admit it, but I guess that’s the first step.  I haven’t studied in two weeks.  So I reached out to Roger thru Facebook and asked for some help.  He provided some great motivation and helped me remember what I forgot the CPA Exam is a marathon, not a sprint.

So here’s what I’ve been up to for the last few days.  I have been talking with my wife and friends about what my next move is and getting as much advice as humanly possible, because in this burnout mood, I am not thinking clearly about the exam.  I found great advice from everyone and it all points to slowing myself down. 

My game plan now is quite simple post pone BEC, breathe and enjoy my life for the month of May. But once June hits, its back to hardcore studying for me.  So for me, enjoying my time has included motorcycling and seeing Ke$ha in concert!!!  Whoo hoo!!  She totally rocked. 

But seriously, I actually thought I was alone going thru this burn out.  If you are going thru this, don’t worry, Roger and his staff are here to send positive thoughts and provide much needed encouragement.  I have also found Rogers other students to be great in providing encouragement as well.  Make sure you take a break and breathe.  This isn’t a sprint, its truly a marathon.
