Plan for what, you ask? It's time to plan for next Monday.
If your news is good, it's time to hit the streets looking for a job. You should, I believe, set your sights a little lower than you might have just five years ago. By that, I don't mean you should not expect to get hired right away or to plan on making less money, I mean that you should look for small firms that have too much work and a couple of spare offices. You might be working longer hours for less money at first, but the satisfaction level at a smaller firm (or even as a solo) is likely to be much greater than it would be at a large firm. Especially over the long term.
And if your news is not so good, it's time to reassess your study plan. If this is your first shot at the bar exam, you might not want or need to tweak much, especially if you came close to passing. But if, like me, this is not your first (or second, or third, ...) time taking the exam, you'll want to explore options on how you can improve your preparation. Like Bill Murray said in Groundhog Day, "Anything different is good!" If we want to get a different result next May, we have to do something different between now and the end of February. We want to wake up from our own personal Groundhog Bar Exam to something different. And anything different, like a passing score, will be good!
Uncomfortable routine is vastly overrated. Let's try something new, shall we?
Cheers, all! There's just four days left to something new!
