Very often, many people settle for people who are not choosing them, and it’s not okay because it’s a surefire sign that you are not as important as you might want to be.
When people really want something, like a dream job or award, they don’t go late for the interview. They don’t procrastinate, and they typically dress appropriately. Painstaking attention goes into their preparation.
Be watchful of how people pay attention or treat your time when next you make an appointment with them. You’ll know whether you are a first draft pick or a free agent.
