"It is somewhat related to business, but it really talks about how we tend to look at the world in a finite sense; even when we talk about things we talk about gains and we talk about things that have a definitive end … In our business there is no finite end, so you have to shift your thinking in terms of how you view the world, how you view your relationships with the people you work with, your family, the world around you. And the book speaks to that to a great extent. It reiterates some of these lessons about looking at the world as not a finite thing but instead looking at it as something that will go on and on and on; and you have to shift your thinking, going beyond just the quarterly review or the annual review and all these other things we put brakes on just because it’s easier for us to comprehend it."
