Even though I haven't taken my exam yet. I seem to have lost the initial drive/focus/discipline which I had to get an awesome score and I feel the reason is that I started the studying process 4-5 months before the exam, Bad Idea!

Bad idea because what I did in the first 3 months was just dilly dally and not really study with full concentration, but still cut out my social life, all fun activities and basically a fake attempt at studying for the GMAT (in reality would study for barely an hour and half and play FIFA 10 for 2-3 hrs)

So now when I am less than 4 weeks away, I am bored, annoyed and in general think that this process is taking too long. I did improve my score from 540 to 640 but still not even close to 700...

Why am I derailed!!

anybody facing the same situation ...any advice!

It is all about how badly you want it and how much you are willing to prioritize your time. Modern world is full of distractions
