Adopted from Simon Sinek”s book The Infinite Game.
James Carse’s Game theory talks about infinite and finite games.
Life and business are infinite games where :
- There are no clearly defined rules
- Players can come and go and there in no definite number
- There is no end limit or time in an infinite game
It goes without saying that in such a context there is nothing like “winning” or “losing” since the goal should just be to stay alive in the game.This very philosophy has been very well highlighted by Simon Sinek in the following quote:
“There is NO such thing as “Winning Business” Or “Winning Life” , there is only AHEAD and BEHIND.”
