Be Your Best
by Pat Schuler
Have you ever been so tired that you know you didn’t
do your best at a networking meeting, or on a phone screening?
A recent issue of Organic Style magazine reported that
people with sleep problems had slower reaction times than
those who were legally drunk. There is no question that
periods of transition or career crossroads can be some
of the toughest on our sleep cycles. And just at the time
when we want to appear and be at our sharpest. No lectures
– we’ve all been there.
The suggestion we offer our clients: if you have an important
meeting, conversation or negotiation prepare at least
two days in advance. If you need to stay up late, do so
at least two days beforehand. Give all the information
time to integrate and percolate. Don’t perfect your 30-second
commercial or the answers to the toughest questions at
2:00am the day of the meeting.
Do what it takes to rest well the night before. You’ll
appear more rested, confident and alert. Give yourself
this crucial advantage over the competition.
