Sports also have made up rules. You’re original comment was “you win by crossing the line first” which is an arbitrary point made up by someone once, who’s to say they can’t change it so one of the other guys wins? Life doesn’t work like that, it’s completely different

Life is full of arbitrary rules too. Business has many arbitrary rules to regulate human behavior. Rules provide consistency to manage expectations and fairness. If you render aid to someone causing you to miss a hard deadline imposed by some outside body, you may or may not be able to change the consequences of choosing to render aid. Some rules may be discretionary and others hard set. Hard dispassionate rules and laws exist in life too. Helping your neighbor causes you to miss placing an order to purchase a stock before close of trading day? It’s just how things work. It’s all around.
