January (currently reading): The Infinite Game by Simon Sinek
Sinek defines two different types of games: finite, like chess or football, and infinite games, like business, politics, or life itself. In an infinite game 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.–About the Book, Random House

Because they are playing with an endpoint in mind, Carse tells us, finite-minded players do not like surprises and fear any kind of disruption. Things they cannot predict or cannot control could upset their plans and increase their chances of losingThe infinite-minded player, in contrast, expects surprises, even revels in them, and is prepared to be transformed by them. They embrace the freedom of play and are open to any possibility that keeps them in the game. Instead of looking for ways to react to what has already happened, they look for ways to do something new ”  The Infinite Game (p. 11)
