Wayne Gretzky Quotes

“A good hockey player plays where the puck is. A great hockey player plays where the puck is going to be.”
– Wayne Gretzky

“You miss 100% of the shots you don’t take.”
– Wayne Gretzky

You must think about what should be accomplished to reach your desired score performance which can be represented with as a certain number, such as 590 or 595 in AP.

I can compare this conversation as hockey players can discuss the newest model of hockey sticks and enjoy the balance and weight of the newest hockey stick models.

See you in Toronto, February 2012.
