The Infinite Game

I am preparing myself for the end of the year break. I normally spend 2 weeks back home in Thailand with my family. It’s a nice way to reward myself. Part of my break is about finishing a few books. So, I have bought 3 books and hopefully I can finish them all before the year end. One of them is The Infinite Game by Simon Sinek. A disclaimer, I haven’t read his book yet, but I am a big fan of Simon.

I have watched his Youtube videos about the infinite game concept in the past few weeks. From what I gather (without reading the book yet) is that there are 2 types of game players – the finite and the infinite game players. And, the differences are:

  • The finite players play to win.
  • The infinite players play to keep playing. Their mindset is to beat their yesterday’s self.

It’s a very intriguing concept. I like to think that I have the infinite mindset. I will tell you more once I finish his book.
