The book is ideal for this year’s graduates who are embarking on their careers or are seeking ideas on how to enrich their lives. The book is easy to read with short questions at the end of each chapter to allow the reader to take an evaluation of where they are in making exchanges. Scott discusses that decision making should be based upon sacrificing certain elements to go from a good to an even better position. In the book, he makes the point that individuals often base decisions from a negative – going from a bad situation to a better or defensive posture when they should be looking at decision making as exchanging a good position for an even better position.
“College graduates are embarking upon a new chapter in life that will mean leaving the known for the unknown and making exchanges along the way,” says Kevin Paul Scott, author of 8 Essential Exchanges: What You Have To Give Up To Go Up. “In my book, I discuss why we shouldn’t be uncomfortable with making exchanges but rather embrace them and I hope this year’s graduates can find inspiration from those examples.
“We make exchanges everyday of our life when we make decisions,” continued Scott. “College graduates need to look at the exchanges as going from a good place to an even better place and that is the core message of 8 Essential Exchanges: What You Have To Give Up To Go Up.”
8 Essential Exchanges: What You Have To Give Up To Go Up has earned strong reviews and has been endorsed by legendary college football coach and Hall of Famer, Vince Dooley of the University of Georgia and Gary Whitehill founder of the New York Entrepreneur Week. The book discusses how to go about making exchanges between good things and even better things that can shape a company’s dynamic or person’s life. The eight exchanges that Scott identifies are:
1. Exchanging stability for significance
2. Exchanging fans for friends
3. Exchanging dollars for difference
4. Exchanging expedience for excellence
5. Exchanging shifting sands for solid rock
6. Exchanging being the master of none to being the master of one
7. Exchanging acceptance for accomplishment
8. Exchanging the immediate for the ultimate
