Why I asked Robin Sharma & Marshall Goldsmith to be a part of Flip the Switch

When I was writing my latest book, Flip the Switch, I was sat at my kitchen table, looking out into the garden marvelling in awe at the complexity and beauty of the world that we live in. From somewhere in the back of my mind popped a few lines, which seemed familiar: “Risk more than is required”, “be strong”, “laugh, cry, innovate”, so I Googled them to learn their origin.

Thinking they were perhaps from a song or poem, the search results jogged my memory and I realised they were snippets from Robin Sharma’s “Rules for Being Amazing”. They fitted perfectly with what I was writing, so I contacted Robin to ask his permission to include them in the book.
