Do you know how to play the game you’re in?
In finite games, like football or chess, the players are known, the
rules are fixed, and the endpoint is clear. The winners and losers
are easily identified.
In infinite games, like business or politics or life itself, the
players come and go, the rules are changeable, and there is no
defined endpoint. There are no winners or losers in an infinite
game; there is only ahead and behind.
