Tom Brady is the greatest football player ever.
Why is this easy to recognize?
Football, like other sports, is a finite game.
Players are known.
Rules are fixed.
The endpoint is clear.
Winners and losers are identifiable.
But business is different.
Just ask yourself…
What’s the greatest company?
Who’s the greatest CEO?
Which organization has the greatest services?
Business is an infinite game.
We don’t know all the other players.
Players come and go.
Rules are changeable.
The game is never over.
A winner is never declared.
Yet companies continue playing with a finite mindset in an infinite game.
Growth through acquisition.
Reduced investment in business development.
An infinite mindset is grateful, builds relationships, and works toward a common good.
It leads to strength, innovation, and inspiration.
In an ever-changing world, these companies have the resilience and lead us into the future.
Think about it.
Do you measure your success on who wins?
Or who’s the best?
Are you leading with a finite mindset in an infinite game?
What’s your vision?
How could you focus more on building and sustaining a strong and healthy organization?
