How to perform brilliantly at interviews AND every single day

By Neil Patrick

I was going to title this post, ‘How to think about your thinking’, but decided that title didn’t even begin to explain the great insights this talk contains.

When we feel under pressure, humans perform sub-optimally. We are all walking around with a 200,000 year-old release of our brain software. Our brains were designed to perform so that we can avoid being eaten by bears.

And that’s the origin of the pre-programming that leads to our instinctive ‘fight or flight’ instincts and many other behaviours which are completely unhelpful in tackling our challenges in the modern world.

No doubt, you’ve heard all sorts of advice on how to overcome this. And a good deal of this is half-baked ‘new age’ nonsense.

So I was thrilled to be sent this TEDX talk by Dr Alan Watkins. The video not only explains how you can actively control your brain power, it also includes a live demonstration of how something as simple as breathing has huge effects on the performance of our brains and hence how well we perform.

If you want to know how to perform brilliantly at your next interview, presentation or meeting, this film will give you simple and really effective ways you can do this.

So grab your beverage of choice, relax and discover how in 2 minutes you can learn how to enhance your brain power and performance to put yourself in ‘the zone’ any time you want to.
