COT: The Infinite Game
Wait Time shared his appreciation and gratitude of the PAX as he accepted a new position at Home Instead. He remarked that many of the PAX have only known him over the past few months in which he was not working. To be clear, Wait Time is not living off an old-money trust fund.
All kidding aside, Wait Time encouraged the PAX to think of life as the Infinite Game and not the Finite Game. This is a concept developed by Simon Sinek – first introduced in “Leaders Eat Last” and now in an entire book called “The Infinite Game.”
Wait Time shared that F3 helped him see life as the Infinite Game. The Finite Game has structured rules, a beginning and an end. In the finite game, someone keeps score and there are winners and losers. For most of Wait Time’s life, he played the Finite Game. By contrast, the Infinite Game has no rules, and no winners and losers. The goal of the infinite game is to “keep the game going.” It is similar to how kids view playing outside in the neighborhood. As a kid, you simply wanted to play with other kids in the neighborhood and perpetuate the game.
For Wait Time, F3Omaha has become the ultimate Infinite Game. The F3 Pax provide of community – a neighborhood game of “kick the can” in which we all want to continue playing. In our marriages, relationships and work how do we view it as the Infinite Game rather than the Finite Game?

We ended the workout with a prayer.
