“Shots on Goal” – Ice Hockey and Career Development

With the start of the NHL season this evening, I wanted to revisit an earlier blog that emphasized a significant statistic quoted during these matches: “SHOTS ON GOAL.”

It’s not hard to figure out why this is a critical measure of success. IF YOU DON’T SHOOT, YOU’LL NEVER SCORE! To be sure, you want to develop some skill in executing these shots, but waiting for the perfect line for that SportsCenter slap shot will likely keep you from ever scoring!

In the same way, if you choose to take limited action in advancing your search, your career explorations, your professional and personal  growth, etc., you’ll likely end up with exactly what you put into it: BUPKISS  (nothing, or precious little of value)! To quote the Great One, Wayne Gretzky: “You miss 100% of the shots you don’t take!”

So, exactly what is your “shots on goal” statistic for your career development?
