Let “Old Lang Syne” Lead to NEW Thinking

There’s certainly a “fun” part to entering a new year: celebrating with friends, watching the ball drop and sharing hugs and kisses. But it can also be very motivating. It’s another chance to draw a line in the sand and do something better. You can use it to make an improvement in your business, such as finally adopting print supply chain management. Or it could mean hitting an even bigger “reset button.”

But sometimes a little inspiration can help. Many well-known authors, public speakers, sports figures and others have provided it, in the form of memorable quotes about change, and having the courage to do it. Today, I’d like to share some of them with you.
