Former President Barack Obama spoke at a tech conference in Salt Lake City, Utah this week.




At the conference, which was organized by software company Qulatrics, Obama discussed his famous reputation for keeping cool under pressure.




Some of his techniques can be easily adopted in everyday life, helping you to focus on performance and tune out the distractions.



Barack Obama was famous during his presidency for always appearing cool and calm. The press sometimes called him "no drama Obama" and didn't always mean it kindly.
He said there was some truth to the nickname when he repeated it on stage this week at a tech conference in Salt Lake City, Utah hosted by software company Qualtrics. But he said, just because he appeared calm, when he was younger he would still sometimes agonize with fear of making a mistake.
"I have an even temperament and I don’t get too high and I don’t get too low, but that doesn’t mean that throughout the presidency and throughout my professional career that there weren't times when I was constrained by, ‘Man I don’t want to screw this up. I don’t want ot let people down. I don’t want to be seen as having made made a mistake or having failed'," he said.
