    How often do you lose focus?

    I lose focus a lot personally. It's quite a difficult beast to combat, one thing I've found helps is to minimize distractions like your phone etc. just turn it off or put it on silent. Also try to check the other person's body language, paying attention to that will naturally make you pay more...

    How do you know when it's time to ask for a raise?

    I suggest waiting them out, because to get a raise, you need to seem as irreplacable to the company as possible. And you can't really do this well in a slow month

    I understand failures are an essential portion of life, and while that's true, being the perfectionist I am...I don't quite know how to get past them.
