For those of you who haven’t had the pleasure of meeting Phil, he’s the quintessential gentleman. He’s the latter-day embodiment of the E.F. Hutton commercial from the 1970s. His soft-spoken assuredness is all you need to be sure whatever he’s saying is worth hearing. Having beaten Stevens-Johnson syndrome’s 25 to 30 percent mortality rate, he refers to himself as a designated survivor. He believes he was spared for a reason. As a result, he lives his life with purpose, with gentle but unwavering intentionality, with generosity and goodwill.
Regular readers of this series know I like to create videos to accompany each installment. In those videos, I like to set original, rhyming verse to music. Phil inspired me to do something else and to use the words of someone else. I hope you enjoy this one. And I hope you take the time to connect with Phil. You will be changed … for the better.
Be like Phil.
