Key takeaways

When having important conversations or an interview remember:

  • What do you want them to think?
  • What do you want them to do?
  • How do you want them to feel?

While we can't control life, there are 3 things we can control that really support us:

  1. What we choose to do
  2. What we choose not to do
  3. How we choose to respond
