Great post from Seth Godin. Hope it resonates with you as it did with me.
Under New Management
It says to loyal customers, “watch out, someone new is in charge.”
And it says to strangers and the apathetic, “this place failed.”
If you think about it, though, every day, everystore is under new management, if we define ‘new’ to mean, “we learned from what happened yesterday.”
Each of us has a chance to be new tomorrow, if we care enough.
The only way to get better is to walk away from what you used to believe. And the person you become can’t possibly be the same as the person you were.
