"Miss the boat" nghĩa là gì?

'Miss the boat' = lỡ chuyến tàu -> nghĩa là để mất cơ hội quý báu.

Ví dụ
If you want to make six figures and help out people in need, there’s no better starting point than a degree in labor law. Ensuring that those who work every day to put meals on their family’s table are safe and properly compensated (đền bù xứng đáng) is no small task. Law grads are landing jobs at a higher pace than in previous years, and there’s no reason for you to miss the boat.

"Despite being on the cusp of a new wave of broadcasting technology, there seems to be less enthusiasm compared to what happened previously. I believe it may be due to more people abandoning (từ bỏ) conventional (truyền thống) TV for YouTube and the various commercial formats streamed via the internet. We're now in an era where the viewer can select the programs he wants to see, and watch them when he wants, so TV's raison d'etre has been diminishing". The TV manufacturers and broadcasters better get their act together, and soon, or they'll miss the boat, Shukan Jitsuwa concludes.

As I started to write about onboarding, I thought about how people miss the boat on how much impact it has. That made me ask: Why? When organizations spend millions of hours, brain cells and dollars on their recruiting efforts, why do they drop the ball on a no-brainer opportunity to keep that positive momentum going? That’s when I realized the reason: Onboarding is the second impression. Nobody has been repeating for years that the second impression matters as much as the first. Maybe that’s why some organizations give onboarding minimal attention even when the numbers prove how essential it is.
