Whatever, if you try to ride a bike and don't know how, you will crash and burn. If you learn the basics beforehand, it's easy.
Don't listen to Jeffort. I have also been studying for the LSAT for two years now. By studying this long, I have not become "burnt out" nor have I declined.
Him tutoring a bunch of children is an irrelevant point as I am merely suggesting study tips. People are different, thus they have different temperaments, etc.., Jeffort saying "you will burn out" is an unfounded statement and his personal opinion on the matter. The OP may not burn out and from what he is saying, I can more accurately assume he won't, than Jeffort can assume he will.
I like that you find life similar to a game. In the essence of playing games, you are now 0-2.
"He did not assume he would burn out or even that he probably would burn out..." Before I move onto my point. I must attack your post due to the blatant insult at my intelligence.You self contradicted yourself within that same post. First and foremost the contradiction lies within you saying, "probably would burn out," if you had not noticed "probably" is the same way as saying, "vey likely." That means it is more easy for a person to burn out when studying for that long period of time. When I re-read his post, he said, "it is easy for you to burn out." Onto my point. Jeffort did assume, and that is where you are wrong. His assumption took place when he noted, "you could easily burn out." Him stating as such is an assumption. If you do not know what assumption means then here is the gist, "conjecture based on no proof; guesswork." Jeffore merely was guessing the OP's temperament level and added in, "you could easily burn out." That is an assumption that the OP has a far more likely chance of burning out than not burning out. Jeffort does not know the OP nor did he ask the OP any further questions to give an accurate assessment of his burnability. He just assumed he would easily burn out if he studied for that long.
