Simon Sinek recommends the book “Finite and Infinite Games,” by James Carse
“The truth is, an obsession with winning in every situation before understanding which game we are playing can actually increase our stress and do damage to our ability succeed over time.
I am an idealist who lives in the real world. My whole life people have called me and my ideas naïve, for example. “Finite and Infinite Games” helped me see that I’m not naïve or stupid, I have an infinite mindset in a world filled with finite players.
That book gave me even more confidence to pursue my vision of a world in which the vast majority of us can feel inspired, safe and fulfilled every day of our lives.
