With the footy season pretty much up and running it makes you think of ‘’game plans” –everyone in the media is speculating just what will the coaches game-plans be with the new rules in force. Coaches work with their team to evaluate the footy landscape and come up with a “plan” – it is a plan to use the rules to their best advantage to give them the best chance to win a Flag.
With 18 teams in the competition you can probably expect that there will be 18 game-plans out there. So why do the 18 AFL coaches all want a game plan? The reason is pretty simple – the game is governed by complex rules – rules that can be interpreted one way or another by the Umpires.
If they don’t have a game plan then all 18 players on each side won’t work in unison, some will be doing one thing which may very well cancel out the benefits of what another group are doing.
So the game-plan does the following:
- It makes each player accountable to that plan
- It allows the team to reach their common goals
- It allows the coach to map his future success
So, do you have a financial game-plan? Financial rules around super, mortgages and investment and tax are all REALLY complex (much more complicated than the AFL rule book).
Are all the players in the team accountable? Does one spend more than the other, is one a better saver?
Think hard about this – DO YOU NEED A FINANCIAL COACH WHO CAN WORK OUT A GAME PLAN?
