Between August 2020 and August 2023 my goal is to publish or republish the 12 books in the series:
In Changing What's Normal I introduced the concept of Sparkenation - a spark that ignites passion that leads to action that changes what's normal.
The book contains 58 sparkenations.
Changing What's Normal is the book I always wanted to write. It's about all change being personal first, relationship change second and organisational change a distant third.
I had the privilege of experiencing your address to delegates at an Australian Institute of Office Professionals conference in Adelaide in 2013. I also purchased your book, ‘Changing What’s Normal’ - you kindly signed it for me and encouraged me to continue being the difference I want to see.
I have since re-read your book many times and ‘done my work’ by acting upon your sparkenations. I have tried to live and promote the philosophy of enlightened self-interest, and can honestly say you have had a profound impact on both my professional and private life.
