An infinite mindset is courage to do what is Right

Another work of art by Simon Sinek. it's not easy to write a book about build an organization with the usual cliche but Simon does a fine job. lots of interesting examples and insights. It validates the fact that all successful organizations are built with an Infinite mind set called the Courage to do what is right for the employees and customers with integrity and not what the stock market wants.

A Game Changer !! - Truly Refreshing.

Beautifully thought and written. A must read for those who seek meaning in the things that they do. It's a guide for setting direction, helping us to make the right decisions, now.

I appreciate the author for giving voice to the book. The impact of the words is increased when the book is narrated by the Author, himself.

Inspiring and thought provoking

This was my first audiobook experience and i loved it. Simon has used several real examples to drive home his point. After the first few chapters one feels that he is diverting to some other issues however towards the end he brilliantly joins all dots together and presents his views most convincingly.
The world will be a better place If we give due importance to the means of achievement of our goals rather than compromising on our ethics and values just for the sake of achieving our goals.
Must read book for all .

Visionary and Courageous

Even though Simon Sinek has built on the original work of Professor James P. Carse, he has managed to package a message of courage and a vision that would not only be more sustainable and valuable to society, but to any business as well. The fact that Simon narrates the content himself is a major plus - it is not a dull reading, but full of passion and conviction. The content is thought provoking on an individual level but should also be shared and considered at a business leadership level. The life we live and the activities we engage in to sustain our journey requires a different mindset than the one most of us where taught or conditioned to accept. "Life is a journey, not a destination" the familiar quote from Ralph Waldo Emerson goes, but soon we may be saying to each other : "Life is an infinite game" as per Simon Sinek, when we want people or corporations to focus on advancing a just cause, building teams that trust, to study and welcome worthy rivals, be prepared to flex and have the courage to lead. This is the insight: we must stop aiming at a fictional "destination" where we can be declared "the winner" - there are no "winners" in business or of life!

Relevant for the right thinking in business today

This book for me articulates the growing train of thinking (philosophically) required for long-term success in today’s business climate which rightly so is becoming more and more focused on the customer and matching a companies cause to its customers ethical view of what a company should do both for them and the community it serves both locally and globally...the companies that align themselves with this inspiring view are justifiably benefiting from this more and more in an “infinite” way...welcome to the brave new world...

Maybe another way to put it...companies will be richly rewarded in the brave new world by all who adopt an infinite mindset in and out of the boardroom not because they have to but because they feel compelled to do so. These same people will typically Dare to Lead their people with empathy and compassion, Multiplying their peoples capacities and turning off products and services that will “add” to the world not at its expense...this is a much needed mindset shift required in our world to tackle more than corporate greed and responsibility but a required shift from humanity itself on a personal and collective scale.

Wow! I was truly impressed.

The value here is that this book is relevant to now. It shows us how leaders have been thinking. How others have been thinking and how we should be thinking if we want to continue on the path of responsibility, sustainability and longevity in our Busines lives. The infinite game.

Being the catalyst for change

If you ever wondered how to make that impact this is it. At last a book on business and life that I can recommend to my team, my seniors, even my family and the whole world.

Simon absolutely rocked this book. This will and have become a starting point for all our strategic endeavors.

Wow.

Back on form

If you were a fan of Start with Why but disappointed by Simon Sinek's Leaders Eat Last or Find Your Why, then he's very much back on form here. I just can't get enough and highly recommend.

Can't wait for the next book.

Another great book by Simon Sinek. I have read all the books by him and they are very inspiring and calling for change in society and us.
Simon - If you do get to read this review. After reading your first book "Start With Why" I quit my job in the industry that I worked for more than 10 years. When I read your books and recommend them to others I say - just be careful as your world view is about to change.

Sublime

Not only for business people, but for everyone. This book opened more my mind to the meaning of life. Everyone with a spark of good inside could get inspired and think onwards what choices they make for improving their life and especially the lives of others in the long term. This book would teach me patience in life working for a better tomorrow.
What I've thought before, it's actually here too: that better is better than the best. The process in getting better and sticking to our Just Cause might be long (actually being infinite) and not pleasant at all times but it's more worth it than to look only for the short-term material success.

Simple point made well

Storytelling revolved around big corporations used effectively to illustrate how an infinite mindset leads to possibilities that don’t exist for those with more finite one taking in corruption and greed along the way. Written in his typical nice style to illustrate one simple point but the range of material does provide space to reflect on your own mindset and the organisation you represent. Nice read

Another awesome book by Simon Sinek!!!

I don’t write many reviews, I have been with audible since 2014 and don’t listen to fiction, his audible books are by far the best I have listened too. Always inspiring and articulated in a way that anyone can understand. I hope to one day meet Simon to thank him in person.

Wonderful

I have been listening to Simon Sinek for a few years now. This long term mentality only makes me feel less anxious and allows me to trust in the future. That ease of feeling that I can have so I am not wast my anxiety energies on worrying about objectives that my business seems important.

Love the ending.

Outstanding!!!

The optimist is back.
The fact that not all of us has clear Just Cause as Mr.Jobs or Dr. Luther, the reason to find one or join one is so relatable to me.
I might join Simon Sinek’s cause to make people safer at meaningful work and be a Infinite player in life.

I think everyone should read this book and spread the idea of this optimist.

Another great job Simon, I’m one of your cause followers now.

Simon Sinek is a visionary and an inspiration

I loved this book. Simon Sinek's easy-to-follow style really helped me deeply understand this concept, and is helping me to strengthen my purpose within my own business. If you want to understand business as more than purely profit or beating competitors, this book is perfect for you. If you see business as purely a make-profit-above-all-else game, then this book is a must-read.
