The hunt continues.
I had a job interview yesterday. I have to tell you I was nervous.
I tried meditation but my mind was on the interview and I couldn't focus.
As the morning went on the nerves were increasing. I reminded myself that was energy. Excess energy, waiting to be expanded. I cleaned the conservatory, hoovered up and walked around the house a few times looking for something else to do. Anything to help expand enough energy to gain focus.
Finally, it was time to leave. My sat nav wasn't playing ball, as I got closer to my destination I went from being 4 minutes away to 6 minutes.
I found the estate and turned onto the car park. I thought it didn't look right and the sat nav told me I wasn't there yet. So I came out of the car park and drove down a dirt track following the sat nav.
The dirt track turned out to be a dead end. I couldn't turn around. I slowly reversed, my nerves kicked in again, my leg was shaking on the accelerator. I began to sweat. Yes, women sweat, especially this woman.
I found my way back to the original car park and walked to the gates to be told I needed to get back into my car, drive through the gates and follow the road all the way around.
It was now 14.25 the interview was 14.30. I ran back to the car, drove through the gates and arrived at my destination.
The smile effect.
Stepping out of the car I took a deep breath and looked up.
Coming out of the building was a woman. She looked over at me and gave me the warmest welcoming smile, I instantly relaxed. I forgot about my shaky leg, my crappy sat nav and sweaty brow.
We exchanged greetings and I went in for my interview.
Trust your instincts.
I was in the right car park all along.
Don't rely on Satnav.
If you can, do a dry run the day or week before.
I found out on Sunday evening I had the interview the next day. I checked maps on my phone and it looked easy enough. Don't rely on this!
Carry a can of deodorant with you.
