    I don’t trust myself

    Hi Will! On a recent podcast you shared how low levels of personal accountability means that you don’t trust that your future self will complete the jobs that you set.

    This is something that I really suffer from. I plan my quarter and weeks with good intentions and then find myself getting distracted.

    Even as I write that, I’m not even distracted. I just don’t want to do the jobs that past Jonathan had set for me.

    I almost begrudge my past self for setting goals for my current self.

    I’m thinking a lot about my past, current and future selves after reading the intro to SalesCode. That shit has tripped up the way I was thinking about life in a big way.

    Any help on this?

    Sellers tend to lack personal accountability because of the long lead-time between doing a sales activity and then getting the results.

    If selling were like playing a computer game (press X, beat baddy, get dopamine) then everyone would be addicted to it!

    Have a read of the personal accountability chapter in SalesCode (page 268). Let me know if you need more advice after that.
