Rob talks to Jordan Gal about a pivotal moment in his business where he made the decision to protect something fragile; his confidence, and why it's been key to his success at CartHook ever since.
One thing I've discovered in the past year is: I'm just not that good at work.
I'm just not that good at it. I don't have great discipline and I'm not very good at focusing for 1 or 2 hours on one thing. It doesn't matter if I'm the best person to do something if it doesn't get done.
The biggest breakthrough is the removal of guilt. That has been so enormous for me. I used to be riddled with guilt. This constant internal conversation in my head about what I should be doing.
I've tried to just let as much of that go as possible. If there's something I don't get around to doing, I just don't feel bad about it. I just move one.
