Infinite Game: Micro Review

Infinite Game by Simon Sinek is a groundbreaking book. I am of course biased. I am a huge Simon Sinek fan.

But I am not just a fan, I share in his vision. His vision being “to build a world in which the vast majority of us wake up every single morning inspired, feel safe at work and return home fulfilled at the end of the day.”

In Infinite Game, Simon talks about the infinite game that we all play in in different aspects of our lives (Personal, Society, Politics and Business). Realizing that the objective is not to win but the objective is to play the game and perpetuate it, is fundamental to his thesis and would be a revelation to many readers.

Simon is a self professed optimist, a modern day philosopher and a genius. His latest book will lift you up with his vision and at the same time make you very uncomfortable.

What he proposes is really hard. Like really really hard.

Corporate behavior is primarily driven by incentive structures or as Clayton Christensen would call “Profit Formula”. Not by ethics. So changing that, or going against it or giving up revenue for what’s ethical is really really hard. But it’s something to aspire to and something we should all strive for.

We all need an infinite mindset. In business and in life.
