Procrastination….the ramifications and some study solutions…the CFP® Exam is coming!
We all procrastinate about something. It may be scheduling a dentist appointment, getting our oil changed or cleaning the fridge. It gets us nowhere. Whatever we procrastinate needs to eventually get done, though now with the added stress of being immediate!
When it comes to studying for an exam, that very easily gets put on the back burner to accommodate work and family responsibilities. What we don’t take into consideration is that procrastinating on the next big exam will add MORE stress to the family and work. By starting early, you can spend an hour or two a day and take a day off each week to spend with family and friends. Waiting until 6 weeks before the CFP® exam will not work. Let’s look at a breakdown of the hours.
Suggested study time dedicated to CFP® Exam review: 200-300 hours
Time before the exam: 12 weeks 10 weeks 6 weeks
Studying 6 days per week: 2 ½ – 4 hours per day, 3 – 5 hours per day, 5 ½ – 8 hours per day
How can we help you keep your work/life/study time in balance so you don’t need to procrastinate? Use MP3 files while working out, running, cleaning, driving…..great way to multitask. Flashcards can be thrown in your purse, or briefcase, to use when you are between meetings or waiting at the doctor’s office. Have your kids quiz you with the flashcards. Study when they are studying, setting a good example for them! Our Key Concepts Infographics can be downloaded to your iPad and viewed at any time! It may not be easy, but you won’t beat the feeling of seeing a “pass” on your exam!
