Take the shot

1 Comment

Here’s a great quote on the importance of taking initiative:

“You miss 100% of the shots you don’t take.”  Wayne Gretzky, Canadian hockey player known as “The Great One.”

Take inventory of the opportunities you have, decide which ones make sense, and take the shot. Be habitual about taking initiative.
