I lost two and a half billable hours to interviews this afternoon. Annoying. It’s a bit my own fault since I listed a two hour window as available. I just never imagined they’d fill it. And then my five o’clock called at 5:30 and I had to say “I’m sorry, could you please call me back at 6?” A time that I had not listed as available for interviews. Car trouble is a less convincing excuse when you are calling your interviewer over the phone.
“What motivates you?” I am scripted to ask.
“Doubters,” he said.
“Doubters motivate you?”
“Yeah, doubters. Today somebody thinks I won’t succeed; so I’ve gotta prove them wrong.”
