Its a struggle. The best advice I can give is dont look at the long term goal. Don't develop a main target or ambition. Don't aim for a plan that prepares you for the exam day. That is too exhausting.

Instead, be smart. Make short term goals. Make daily plans. Make short schedules. Take topics as they come. Take steps as they come. If you start looking at the entire work you need to do, and all the studies, and so many topics left, and all the different books, not to mention the other exams - it all becomes too overwhelming!

Nope. Wrong way to go about the exam. Make short goals. Weekly targets. And thats it. Don't bother what you will do the next week. Of course, keep a rough time frame that you should be ready by this month, but not a specific date or a main goal.

Slow and steady wins the race!
Persistent and perseverance, and the flowing waterfall carves rivers along the lofty mountains
