Find Stillness

Find Stillness

Feel like you live on a merry-go-round? Tend to overthink things? Here’s how to get your mind to stop spinning.


Interviewers Don’t Expect You to Know It All

When you’re asked a question you simply don’t know the answer to, don’t panic. Do these things instead:

  1. Realize that interviewers ask tough questions to find out how you react to stressful situations.
  2. Breathe, pause and ask for a moment to collect your thoughts (this will help fill any awkward silence).
  3. Instead of guessing, explain your thought process and the steps you’d take to find out the answer. Demonstrating logical and creative thinking is more important than getting the answer right.
