Interview Yourself

Interview Yourself

If we could just have this one thing, then the world would be perfect. We’re always looking for that one missing piece of the puzzle, the one that would complete us and make as an example of a perfect specimen.

How often do we listen to an interview of some famous person and think, “Wow, that was a clever answer. I could never come up with something like that”. Well guess what – I bet you’re wrong. The fact is that the interviewees often get the questions in advance, so they can prepare a good and interesting answer. And if you’re up for it, we’re going to do a little experiment. I have gathered some interesting questions that guests of three popular shows are asked – The Tim Ferriss Show, My Morning Routine and The Productivity Show. Follow along and answer these questions yourself!
