Work To Win The Infinite Game- 1 minute Read
Many leaders love to use sports quotes in their daily vocabulary, but they might be doing themselves and their business a disservice by using game references where winners and losers are easily identified. Business, politics, and life itself is an infinite game where the rules are changeable, no clear winners, and there are no defined endpoints.
Simon Sinek, the best seller of Start With Why, where he showed the value of starting with a purpose, is offering a framework to navigate better the game we all participate i: The Infinite Game on Amazon.
My notes and thoughts:
When we are playing the finite game, it is like eating too many desserts in the name of enjoying life, only to make oneself diabetic.
Leaders are not responsible for the results; leaders are responsible for the people who are responsible for the results.
Short-term thinking often has a short-term impact.
When leaders exercise the courage to lead, the people will start to reflect the same courage, like children mirroring their parents.
This is a must-read for anyone with "manager" in their title.
