The author asks, “Remember that childhood faith when you’d go out and play your sport with reckless abandon? How different that is now from today’s corporate world of worry, doubt, anxiety and feelings of inferiority every day when you go to work. You don’t have to feel lost anymore. You can have a level of satisfaction, fulfillment, and joy in your corporate world and experience the professional life you always wanted.”
The game-changing mindset from Taylor Scott is to simply do the following, as he sums up the five parts to the inspirational book, “So, practice the future today. “Play” (work) hard, listen to your own coaches, have fun, and unleash compassion. You‘ll transform your boring job into meaningful work, fulfillment, inevitable success, and most importantly, you‘ll enjoy the ride.”
Inside the pages of Ballgames To Boardrooms Mr. Scott breaks it down like this:
Part One – Practice the Future Today
Part Two – Listen to Coaches
Part Three – Play (Work) Hard
Part Four – Have Fun
Part Five – Unleash Compassion – Make the Extra Pass
