Philip joined Whitney Johnson on her Disrupt Yourself podcast. Philip speaks about the passion in his work, how he handles imposter syndrome, glorious failure and creating in a “goosebump economy.”
Whitney lists her key takeaways from their chat:
“If you don’t believe in what you are doing, no one else will, either.
Deadlines and a feeling of being an imposter can create pressure that requires you to learn new things. Lean into the pressure and do the impossible.
The moment you embrace the potential for failure, you probably won’t.
Philip believes in a “goosebump economy,” which is if something is going to move you, and move somebody else, then it’s worth doing.
Creatively speaking, if something is only 70% right, throw it out and start again, because you will never love it.
What will you do whether someone pays you to do it or not? The desire to persist is passion.”
Whitney Johnson is an expert on disruptive innovation and personal disruption; specifically, a framework which she codifies in her books Disrupt Yourself: Putting the Power of Disruptive Innovation to Work and Build an “A” Team: Play To Their Strengths and Lead Them Up the Learning Curve.
