In today’s competitive world, every human being’s primary aim is getting success in their life.
The desire to achieve success has to come from within the heart. We have to work and have the willpower to achieve success. That’s what determines whether you’re among the best or not.
And for achieving success, you have to master the fundamentals first. For excelling at anything, you have to be an expert in the fundamentals. For this we can take the example of finite and infinite games. Now let’s have a deeper look into that. When you realize that you’re getting bored, that means you don’t have any interest in mastering the fundamentals.
And coming to the example of finite games, there are designated individual players, pre-determined rules and clear winners. These kind of people are the least interested in games without an end or a real winner.
But the mindset of being committed to and excelling in the fundamentals while playing an infinite game- that’s the mindset of some of the most successful, influential and inspiring people of all time.
If you want to achieve success, have a fantastic career and life, you need to embrace these both principles.
Most people nowadays, want to learn all the newest trends without even knowing the basics. But successful people always start with the basics.
An excellent example is fitness. You can’t have an excellent body in one day. You have to work out persistently, maintain your diet and sleep properly to achieve a fit and healthy body.
The idea of finite vs infinite games was made popular to popular by James Carse. Some people just want to play a game in which they can win, but others are interested in a game without rules, no winners- just keep playing.
You have to embrace both these mindsets, to stand out of the crowd. To achieve success and to remain at the top and lead a happy life.
