Have we all done it? Yes. Should you be doing it? No. Are you doing to keep doing it? Also yes.

Basically this. Everyone has those days where they don't wanna get chewed out for missing KPI's, but just aren't in the headspace to sell. It's normal, even if unproductive.

No, my company doesn't measure AEs on call KPIs as long as we're producing.

When I was a BDR would I call companies that never answered to meet KPIs on a Friday afternoon? You bet your sweet bippy.

Call me what you want, just sign the damn contract
I never did this as a BDR BUT we didn't have stupid fucking requirements like that. Quantity isn't quality.

This is the problem with "it's a number game" mentality that still pervades sales culture. You can't magic pipeline and dialing randomly doesn't achieve shit. Do what you need to do to get by, get promoted and move on with life.
