What will you learn from this book

Take-Aways

• Giving should be done selflessly without any ulterior motives.

• Giving is incomplete without receiving. Effective giving is possible only when you are amenable to receiving.

• To be influential, you need to be considerate. Keeping the best interests of others in mind makes you highly influential.

• You become valuable when you give more in service than what you receive in return for it. The goal is to always give more than what would be merely ‘acceptable’ for the payment received.
