Morning


When you have a crappy day, remember that everything will feel better in the morning. Get some quality sleep. Start at it again tomorrow.

Persevere persevere persevere


Do Power Poses?


This TED Talk by Amy Cuddy - about body language - has close to 90 million total views the past decade. It's worth watching to help you nail the job interview.

She asserts that doing "power poses" - standing tall, proudly, and confidently for two minutes beforehand - will help you better perform in the interview.

At the end of the day, you can't truly fake or hack your way into confidence. And you definitely want to keep it real in the interview. But Cuddy's case is valuable nonetheless!
