Under new management

That’s a pretty silly thing to write on the store window.

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, every store 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.
