I went to a residential high school and every night from 8-10 pm we had QUEST, quiet uninterrupted, enforced study time. It isn't exactly a lifetime habit that's stayed with me... But in the past year I've been making an effort to not screw over my future self. Procrastination is one of those things that always harms your future self. Of course sometimes it doesn't work, like the time my laptop crashed and ATE my portfolio a week before it was due. But mostly having enough time to not feel rushed is great.

I know that I have to take the certification exam, so I'm making an effort to study Robbins at a comfortable pace. It would be fantastic if I could utilize some of my commute for studying so I'm working on figuring that out :) It is 2+ hours a day I'm not using otherwise, unless you count whatever it is I learn from NPR.

But until then I'm making it a point to study a little every day, my own self inflicted morning QUEST. It is much easier to study now, this is all stuff I've been before. It isn't effortless (and I can honestly say that I've thoroughly enjoyed not having to study on a regular basis so there is the psychological hurdle to overcome), but it isn't so bad.

  1. I think the "psychological hurdle" is the hardest part of it. I'm struggling with that myself as I start studying for my boards.
