Welcome To Another Episode of The Decoding Purpose Podcast.
When it comes to guests, I am always intentional about finding people from all walks of life. This includes thought leaders, scientists, entrepreneurs, actors, artists...the list goes on! Why do I do it? Because in every conversation, there is a golden thread. I can look inside for the patterns...the codes of meaning, and in doing so, I can connect more deeply with one thing-our human nature. And that awesome because today's guest is also from chart topping music group Human Nature. His name...the one and only Phil Burton.
So what has Phil Burton got to say about purpose? What I want to tell you is that Phil's journey encapsulates what the golden threads of purpose are all about. His story is one that captures the power of a dream, the focus, the commitment and the discipline to do the work, it is a story about courage, taking risks, and showing up time and time again to do world-class work as an individual and as a team with one focus - the creation of harmonies and rhythm. It's a conversation that is bigger than the singing of a song - because its about the meaning of the music. The joy and the happiness shared with so many people over a career spanning more than 30 years. Finally, this is a story of deep humility, and Phil Burton has that in spades. He is one of the kindest people I know.
Now...I have something to confess. I am currently trying to make my introductions a little shorter with strict instruction from the shows producer but even if that wasn't the case and I had an hour to do this intro I still wouldn't get through the long list of award-winning hits, albums and shows produced by these Aussie legends. What I will say is Human Nature has been at the top of their game for more than 30 years, they have held a residence in Vegas for the last tens years with unprecedented success, and In November 2019 Human Nature were inducted into the ARIA Hall of Fame.
So without further delay lets pop on those dancing shoes and get ready to croon with none other than the Aussie music legend himself the one and only Phil Burton.
