British Definition – to speak or write, especially at great length, without saying anything meaningful or valuable.

 

I was a notorious waffler when I started this journey…

 

Why?

 

  • Not enough preparation.
  • Substituting substance for words.
  • Nerves stemming from the knowledge that I didn’t do enough work.

 

I decided to turn this around after one interview where after monumental waffling, I had to ask the interviewer, ‘What was the question again?’ We all laughed at that, but inside I was mortified.

 

I decided this couldn’t happen again.

 

I corrected this by:

  • Research (general & specific)
  • Creating story frameworks.
  • Analysis, refinement of my answers.
  • Practice.
  • Consistent iteration.
