“That ship has sailed,” I said years ago to a colleague while lamenting about a missed opportunity.
“Nonsense,” the colleague replied. “A new ship leaves the dock every day.”
He was right. Every day of the year is a new opportunity to succeed.

Michelle Landis of ActionCOACH of Greater Lehigh Valley/Berks recently wrote a column for Lehigh Valley Business about adopting 90-day plans for the new year. For the column, click here. (A subscription might be required.)

“Git-r-done,” as Larry the Cable Guy would say. Regardless of what the calendar says.
