What to do when you have no fucking idea

What I do to gain clarity when I’m feeling lost.

The truth is that I don’t have a great solution for what to do when I’m lost.

  • Hire an accountability/sales coach.
  • And commit to hitting a certain prospecting metric, every week.

Oh, and then I envision the worst-case scenario.

I have plenty of money coming in, but every time it goes down, down, down a small part of me has a complete and utter panic attack.

  • One of my family-member’s dies.
  • My business takes a shit and I can’t find a job.
  • I’m forced to live on rice-and-beans for a while.
  • I have to live on somebody’s couch because I can’t pay my rent.
  • After living on a friend’s couch for a week or two, they’ve grown sick of me. And they’re tired of my overeating and over-drinking.
  • I move back home.
  • I become so depressed that I can’t get out of the house.
  • I get fat.
  • I get more depressed.
  • I get even fatter.
  • My skill-sets erode. I become a useless tool.
  • etc.
