The Doctors welcome author Mark Hsu, who used one of his greatest fears in life to help inspire him to write a book.
The “Please Open in the Event of My Death" author has an intense fear of flying but travels often for work. He would worry if the plane were to crash, his young daughters would not remember their time with him. This fear inspired him to chronicle what he had learned about life skills like making friends, excelling in your career, forming relationships, and parenting with the hope these life lessons could be passed down to his children.
While writing the book, Mark says he was able to put the lessons he wrote about into practice with his children and tells Dr. Ian Smith the book became a self-fulling prophecy and helped him accomplish the things he worried would not happen.
As for the biggest lesson in the book, Mark says his section on heartbreak illustrates that "things pass and people are able to bounce back from adversity."
Looking ahead, the author hopes the ongoing pandemic will help people come together in new ways, reconsider what they want to leave behind as their legacy, and inspire us to rethink what is truly important.
