Why Some Game-Plans Work
Every team is excited about their game-plan on the day they think it up. Some teams are excited when the game-plan works and they get to hold up a trophy or the equivalent to it. Other teams never really get to see their game-plan pan out. There are lots of reasons why a game-plan fails but there is a major reason why a game-plan works. Every game-plan that works did not get abandoned in the middle of its implementation. Great teams that win usually stick to their game-plan. They are not rattled when adversity challenges them. They methodically outlast the hiccups and distraction through disciplined and thoughtful implementation.
