“Well, I was going to finish my ebook, but then I watched this webinar on the power  of Facebook Live so now I think I should start livestreaming my day because that's TOTALLY going to build my business!”.

Or what about…

“I'm working on a coaching program I'm launching this summer…and a new lead magnet…and I'm thinking of starting a new podcast…oh, and I might give affiliate marketing a try as a side project.”

Or even…

“I'm trying to build my website, but I think I should write a few blogposts first so I have something to launch with. Ohhhh and now that I think about it I should totally create a webinar and learn Facebook ads because I hear that's all the rage right now. OH! And I should probably invest in that sales funnel training because I definitely need to know that oh and SQUIRREL!”.
