  • People are most likely to remember the first and last things to occur, but rarely the middle.
  • If you work in a bar or in customer service of any kind…Put a mirror behind you at the counter.
  • Once you make the sales pitch, don’t say anything else.
  • If you ask someone a question and they only partially answer, just wait.
  • Chew gum when you’re approaching a situation that would make you nervous like public speaking or bungee jumping.
  • People will always remember not what you said but how you made them feel.
