I’m in your boat but I’m going to school full time. The best thing to do if you need to focus on studying is go to the school library, or make a study group that will force you to stay focused. Plus seeing all those other people studying motivates me .

When I was studying for the GRE (all 3 times that I took it), I would have to go away to some place that was quiet and really keep reminding myself of my goal. I looked at studying for the test as sort of a game or something that I was trying to “outsmart.” Having that kind of attitude helped a lot instead of dreading trying to study for it.

I also really secluded myself (I lived alone so that was easy) but I wouldn’t let myself turn on the tv or call anyone until I did X amount of studying. I would even talk outloud to myself because that is how I learn best. It is such a pain, but stick with it and it will TOTALLY pay off 🙂

Seriously, I have the worst ADD. My coworkers/ managers are like “K… seriously… focus. For 2 seconds. Ritalin just made me mean, so I gave up on the meds!
