As a coach I would never think of going into an athletic contest without a game plan. A game plan is essential if I want to put my team in the best possible position to win.
A game plan gives a course of action to take, and is the basis for the coach to make decisions. A good coach would never think of just showing up for a game unprepared, without a plan.
Just as a coach has a game plan to help his team win, you need to have a game plan to win big in 2017.
