#080: “Beyond the To-do List”, An Interview With Erik J. Fisher [Podcast]

Productivity is about more than the right day planner, a particular methodology, and certainly more than having a good “to do list”.


In today's episode, I interview one of my favorite podcast hosts, Erik J. Fisher of the Beyond the to Do List Podcast.

Other highlights coming up in today's show…

  • I give you my initial read on iOS7… the good, the bad, and yes… the ugly
  • How you can be sure God is not mad at you.
  • At least three powerful takeaways on productivity from Erik.

And then we have the ever popular, “much, much more.”


Conferences where I will be attending and/or speaking:

Tip Of The Week

I have been using the new iOS7 since the day it came out. Here are my initial thoughts. (You have to listen to the episode to get my thoughts!)

Spiritual Foundations

Your sins will not be played for all to see on Heaven's big screen television.

For I will be merciful toward their iniquities,
and I will remember their sins no more.

Hebrews 8:12

  • Thanks for having me on the show Ray! I look forward to releasing my interview of you soon!

    • The pleasure was mine, Erik. Looking forward to seeing you soon.

      • I am glad that we will see each other at two upcoming conferences! 🙂

  • Liked the episode Ray. I really appreciated the spiritual foundations segment. I was raised Catholic and attended Catholic schools where there were actual Nuns teaching (rare now). God remembering all your sins was a prominent line. Your message of forgiveness and love is fantastic. Thank you for that.

    As for the to do list. One of the best things I learned from a wise boss years ago is to do the most important thing that needs to be done but that you are most dreading First. Once that is complete, it makes your day so much more enjoyable. It definitely helps me be more productive since then I am not constantly dreading doing those items.

    Enjoy Jerusalem!

  • Great interview. I also am a fan of Erik and his podcast. Who would’ve thunk that sometimes all you have to do is to ask somebody you admire for an interview/moment of their time that they may actually say ‘yes’. We often put ‘celebrities’ on pedestals, when in the end, we are all running in the same race…..the human race.

    It depends on what I have going on that day/week but one of the things I do is prepare as much as possible the evening or day before. I am up before the rest of my family to have quiet, focused time and before I start any business related activities one of the things I do is read aloud declarations/affirmations to get me focused on the right things.

  • I’d don’t know that I ever heard about sins being played on a big screen in heaven but I’m sure that there were or are people who teach that. I appreciate your reminder that God will remember our sins no more!

  • Awesome interview Ray. I had the pleasure of welcoming Erik on my show and even met him briefly at the end of the Start Conference. He truly practices what he preaches.

  • Well, I guess it should be with the sense of setting your priorities in order to have a productive day. 🙂
