10. Distraction

Of course you don’t want to seem distracted in an interview or client meeting. But not coming out behind isn’t the same as coming out ahead. Potential distractions should be seen as an opportunity to convey your professionalism and focus.

Someone accidentally comes into the meeting room? Continue looking at your target and stop speaking until the person excuses himself then resume speaking like nothing happened. Don’t even mention it. You are so focused on what’s important, nothing can distract you.
