Do you have someone you report to? Not your spouse or your mom or dad or someone emotionally close to you and/or the outcome?
If you do, I’ll bet you are 10x more effective than the person who doesn’t.
If you are self-motivated, and driven, like ME… I didn’t have anyone I was accountable to, you are… well, 1/10th as effective as the person who has a coach (or someone they are accountable to).
This is serious stuff. Don’t think you are too good to be accountable, I don’t care how driven you are. Get someone who you will report to, weekly.
