I want to talk with you better technique for preparing for your interviews that will help you perform so much better, it won't take you a long time to do, it could be 2 or 3 minutes, it could be 10 minutes but it is a very simple technique that has been done for thousands of years.

What's that technique?

Spend a few minutes in meditation.

I know. I know. You think meditation is real. "Whew."  I must tell you, when all is said and done. If you spend a few minutes on your breath, for example, or about a single thought, what you will wind up doing is relax your mind, relax your body and get yourself incredibly focused. If you drift off on 1 of those topics, just returned to it.  Don't beat yourself up.  Don't criticize yourself for doing it wrong.  Just returned to the breath, for example.

You will find that by doing this, your focus and concentration is going to grow.  Your ability to perform well on interviews and your career in general is going to improve as well.  What can go wrong?
