Game Plan Your Career

Every great sports coach or even player prepares a thorough game plan prior to every game. The best coaches and players study film and know a great deal of moves the opponent will make. They spend countless hours dissecting where they or other players failed to execute and they can see why plays collapsed or worked well.
