When you are planning to interview someone, draft a script for how you want the conversation to go. Include your questions and plenty of notes. Then study the script well and toss it.

Reason: If you aren’t following the script during the actual interview, the conversation will be much more natural, and you are likely to receive honest—and better—responses from the interviewee.

If trashing your script altogether is out of the question, make sure you glance at it only occasionally to jog your memory.
