MADPHX Intro: The Honorable William Binder

Making a Dent in the Universe.. Start with Phoenix

Gaping Void explains what MADPHX is all about in this piece work.

In Hugh’s latest Newsletter he says it so well.

Excerpt below:

It was always Steve Jobs’ mantra: “Let’s make a dent in the universe”.

I liked that phrase so much, I incorporated it into the Hughtrain Manifesto:

Whatever you manufacture, somebody can make it better, faster and cheaper than you.

You do not own the molecules. They are stardust. They belong to God. What you do own is your soul. Nobody can take that away from you. And it is your soul that informs the brand.

It is your soul, and the purpose and beliefs that embodies, that people will buy into.

Ergo, great branding is a spiritual exercise.

Why is your brand great? Why does your brand matter? Seriously. If you don’t know, then nobody else can- no advertiser, no buyer, and certainly no customer.

It’s not about merit. It’s about faith. Belief. Conviction. Courage.

It’s about why you’re on this planet. To make a dent in the universe.

Explicit content.

Are we allowed to criticize one another publicly as long as we’re constructive? We have all been guarded at one time or another for fear of retaliation or losing social capital even when we are attempting to help someone improve or correct. And what about the opposite condition? Do we need to be supportive when we really don’t know that the product is good? We discuss the groupthink and groupmind that happen in our circles and whether we need to check it, or just be aware that it exists.

Participants: Nina Miller; Tyler Hurst; Bully Bjorn; Jose Gonzalez and Derek Neighbors.

How does the economy effect our creativity both positively and negatively. The conversation turns to the ways that we are both spurred on and cornered into making different decisions when the money isn’t flowing. Do we have solutions? sure. Are we slightly flummoxed? definitely. What do you think?

Participants: Nina Miller; Bully Bjorn; Jose Gonzalez and Derek Neighbors.
