First impressions are paramount since they are highly accurate; how you are instantly evaluated can make or break your success. And you have heard before that a first impression is made within 5 seconds, but I believe it’s faster. Why?

This means we need to up our game and make sure that we control the impressions that we are making.
Mr. Carnegie certainly simplifies this, doesn’t he? How do you come across? You don’t get a second chance to make a good first impression.
