Good evening all,
As we learn of yet another tragic terrorist act in France, I can’t help but think of all the lives lost both in France and in our own country. My thoughts go out to all the victims, and to their family members and loved ones.
So how do you study for the bar exam with so much going on, especially when it is such sad news?
Focusing on the task at hand and recognizing that by doing well on the bar exam, you can do well for others too. It isn’t just your life that is affected by passing, it is everyone around you, and, in particular those that you will ultimately help once you become an attorney. Think about that now as a source of motivation (if you are struggling). And, if you are unaware of what I am talking about – then it means you have not been on social media, have not watched the news and have truly disconnected (as you should) for your bar studies.
If you have not disconnected, then now is a good time to do that (keep your cell phone off during the day when you are studying, stop checking email, stay off of twitter and Instagram and Facebook – these can be huge time wasters). Let family members and friends know that you are going into hibernation until the bar exam is over. It is critical that you hunker down right now and really focus. The bar exam is less than two weeks away. Do your best to put aside everything else in the next 11 days. If not now, when?
All the best in your studies!
