Things to Think About - You miss 100% of the shots you never take

Things to Think About
By Pepper de Callier

“You miss 100% of the shots you never take.”  Wayne Gretzky

I love this quote because it’s short, to the point, true, and unforgettable. It speaks directly to the procrastinator in all of us.  Especially when we know there is something we should attempt. It could be a presentation, a phone call, a project, or an apology.  We all face things each day that we would rather not do. But, here’s the thing, each time we do or don’t, take the “shot”, we are sending a message to those around us of who we are and of our brand as an employee, a leader, a partner, and a person.  If someone were to ask someone who knows you well, how this quote relates to you, what would they say?  Is it time for some practice?

Good luck on your journey! (And, don’t forget your hockey stick!)
