Troy Hitch describes the difference between egotism vs. egoism, and how to use the understanding to find the good in the work we do.
“Who do I think I am? I’ve think I’ve said. I’m Troy Hitch.” Troy follows his personal story from his early days as a theatre student at NKU to his current role as the Chief Innovation Officer at Barefoot Proximity. He understands that personalities drive our industry and that we rely on our egos to do the work that we do. Egotism and egoism are explained: the perils of the former and the benefits of the latter. The ultimate goal is explained: the ‘ego epiphany’ “when I’m happier about others’ success than my own.”
