Lesson 1: The world is full of both finite and infinite games

Soccer is an excellent example of a finite game. There’s a limited field on which the game is played. The rules are clear. There’s a set time for when the game begins and ends, a mechanism for keeping score, and a list of winners and losers after the fact.

Naturally, finite games inspire short-term thinking. You have to win immediately , and the only way to win is to kick your opponent out of the game. Elections, casting shows, and all sporting competitions are finite games.
