They are drawn to all the emails and websites they come across that promise easy riches, and quite innocently they end up “just having a quick look.” That “quick look” can often result in a total loss of focus on what they are supposed to be doing which results in less and less being accomplished until finally they begin to believe they had the wrong plan. Other opportunities can suddenly look as if THEY would have been the better one to work at! That’s the big problem that kills so many great ventures before they’ve even got off the ground!
