Interesting article about how successful comedians perfect their craft...all I could think while reading the article was how similar it is to effective LSAT preparation.

    Yes. I think this idea applies to many endeavors in life, including the LSAT. If we see our favorite athlete, he or she makes his motions seem effortless, even though it was achieved through countless hours of practice. I was also told that for a high 170 scorer, getting the answer seems automatic for most of the questions, with the exception of the few curve breakers.

    Exactly what I was thinking too about athletes! Especially those whose end product looks more like art i.e. figure skating, ballet. Hmmm I wonder if high 170 scorers are able to correctly anticipate the correct answer most of the time.

    LeBron James is an artist. Game 4 against the Warriors in the 2016 (I think?) NBA playoffs was a masterpiece.

    This reminds me of the book, Outliers by Malcolm Gladwell, which is an incredible read if anyone has the time. It discusses how Bill gates acheived his success, how the Beatles actually became one of the best musical acts in history, how Joseph Flom developed Skadden, Arps, Slate, Meagher and Flom into the successful law firm that it is today, etc... It is pretty remarkable to read about how hard these individuals worked but also the opportunities that they were given and how they took them and rannnn with them more than anyone else did. The LSAT is just another opportunity!

    I am so glad that I joined this community! 7 sage is not a mere course material for the LSAT, but it has a great community that shares amazing stories and encouragement constantly! There are many times that I feel like I want to give up on this test, but I don't think I can ever do that because I keep reading these inspirational messages that make me keep going -!

    I'm so glad you're here too @Alohalena ! While I am nowhere near the end of my LSAT journey I have fought off thoughts of giving up on this test by reminding myself giving up only means letting the LSAT win. We'll get there!
