The Infinite Game of Life: Why Do New Year’s Resolutions Fail?

Episode #111

As we welcome in every new year, it’s almost informal global tradition to have resolutions. Unfortunately, it’s also tradition that most of these resolutions don’t make it through half the first quarter of the year.

Life is an infinite game. Playing finite games and setting finite resolutions are going to be ineffective.

And so, it’s time to change our mindset this 2024. Let us name our year, play the infinite game, and live our lives not by resolutions, but by a theme.

Ladies and gentlemen, welcome to Intuitive Finance, and welcome to 2024.
