The CPA Exam Can Be Like a Triathlon (via @WebCPAtweets)

"Check out that picture. Yes, it’s me. And yes, I finished a triathlon. OK, it was a sprint distance, not an Ironman, but still it was a 400-yard (16-pool-lengths) swim in Lake Michigan, an 18-mile bike ride followed by a 3.1 mile run. And yes, look at me. I am overweight. More than that, I am fat! But I finished. I was DFL…Dead Freaking Last. But DFL is not DNF (Did Not Finish). Twenty people didn’t finish; they got pulled out of the water, or fell off their bikes or more likely just gave up.  So what does my triathlon finish have to do with your CPA Exam? All you have to do is finish. No one will know if you were DFL. All they will know is that you passed.

Passing the CPA Exam is like finishing a triathlon. It takes guts, will and determination. More than intelligence, it takes discipline. If you have the coursework to sit for the CPA Exam, you have the knowledge to pass the exam. However, are you willing to train? Are you willing to get on a schedule and get up every morning before dawn and do problems before starting your day, or at night do your evening problem set workout?"
