Engaging Podcast! Loved it

OMG! I have done the same social media accounts - deleted many and set screen time for instagram 😯 It was like - ok I am doing something right with the time I have control over! I pay more attention to people, read books, listen to music or listen a podcast 😊 and it has really made a difference in my life! This was a great podcast!

Definitely made me much more productive

One of the things I love about this podcast is that it has made me much more productive in most aspects of my life. It provides actionable tips that are easy to follow and reinforcements that keep me motivated and focused on my goals.

So helpful and goes to deeper meaning

Loved the Joshua Becker episode and each one I’ve listened to always touches on the deeper, often kore spiritual side of the issue which I appreciate so much. Gets to the real core issue instead of being superficial.

Hard to find people like this

In my circles there aren’t to many people who think much on the stuff covered in this podcast. The host and his guests help fill my need for discussing these ideas. Eric is friendly and easy to listen to. Because the podcast focus is fairly narrow, at times things feel rehashed. But even then it’s good reinforcement. Keep in mind with multiple guests over time speaking on the same theme, in addition to being contradictory at times there’s just too much to apply. Critical thinkers though will pick from the menu and use what works for them.


Wow. It’s like someone asked me, “what would you like to see in a podcast?” and created this one. I’m at a point in my life where EVERY SINGLE episode is tied to something I can use in my daily life or guests bring inspiring knowledge. Love love love this podcast. Thank you!

Great content ideas/too rambly

Every episode title is something I can relate to and would love to know more about. The problem is, the host spends half the episode time rambling verbiage for me to sift through to find the gold nuggets. It wastes my time when I’d rather have a shorter episode and a bullet list actionable format. Great content, but needs better delivery.

A must listen!

If you've ever struggled with productivity and motivation, this podcast is the one for you. Erik and his guests are incredible, and I admire them for their determination to not let anything stop them from being productive. 10/10 would recommend.

Awesome show, highly recommend!

Highly recommend listening and subscribing to Beyond The To-Do List if you want the knowledge AND mindsets to grow into the person you know you’re capable of becoming (and reach your overall goals as a result)!

Worth your time...

Every aspect of this podcast is well done. The sound quality, the chosen guests, the obvious preparation, the interview style and questions, the tone, and the content. It always leaves me with specific thoughts and perspectives related to my own habits.

I've been listening to Beyond the To Do List for a few years and over time have implemented some of the suggestions from Erik and his guests. I see an improvement in my daily life because of this podcast!

Great Content and Interview Style

I recently started listening to this podcast. The interview style is so relaxed and enjoyable to listen to that time flies. I’m really enjoying the many insights on productivity and life in general. I’m about to relisten to one episode—it was that good.

Real, fun, relatable

Erik is a really great interviewer and is able to balance quality solo shows with top shelf interviews and awesome people who feel a bit more relatable. I love that the advice here can relate to entrepreneurs or people in a day job alike. Great info!

Great Tips

As others have commented, this feels like an intimate, informal conversation between friends vs. an official podcast. Erik is friendly and genuine with his guests, allowing their personal experiences to convey the takeaways vs. a more formulaic Q & A session. This podcast is a great resource for anyone looking to make small changes for a big impact.

Exactly what I Needed To Hear

What a Value-Packed Show

I especailly love the recent interview with Julia Roy about "Digital Sanity". I was so relieved that I am not the only one felt constant pressure to clean up my digital space:) Thank you Erik for creating such an awesome show!

Easy to listen to and very helpful

Awesome podcast that has given me a ton of tools for productivity and not only gave me the tool but explained in easy to understand terms how to use them! Awesome podcast! Keep doing what you're doing!

A must-listen for the seasoned or aspiring productivityist

If you’re always searching for ways to improve your productivity, you’re not alone (believe-it-or-not.) What I like about Erik’s show is that not only does he address the fundamentals of productivity, but he also delves into how to accelerate productivity strategies with his guests. He gets them to share their trade secrets, which allows the listeners to extract tactics that will fit their current productivity level and life situation. Note for those with kids: As a mom of a toddler (with another on the way), I’ve found that my approach to productivity has drastically shifted. I was searching for ways to counteract the constant flow of interruptions during my day. Erik’s show with Jeff Sanders (BTTDL116) is an excellent episode to listen to if you have kids and are trying to figure out how to be a good parent while also optimizing your mornings to set up your day for productivity. This episode was a game-changer for me!

great podcast

Some really great information and interesting topics and guests. Definitely recommend

A Valuable Resource

Beyond the To Do List is (and has been for a long time) one of my can’t-miss favorite podcasts. Erik’s conversations with the people “behind productivity” are always interesting, and I always learn something I can put into practice to make my own life more productive.

Insightful, motivational, encouraging

I can't get enough of this podcast. Erik is a superb interviewer. He asks all the questions I want to know the answers to. I have learned so much from Beyond the To-Do List. I can't say enough about how wonderful this podcast is. Listen to it!! You'll love it!

It’s one of (maybe) three podcasts I listen to

I don’t listen to many podcasts. I don’t have time for it. It might be because of Beyond the To-Do List. The content has helped me pair down the clutter in my life and focus on the task in hand instead of staying in a constant state of distraction. I don’t hike or walk or jog with headphones on anymore. I don’t even listen to music anymore when I’m working: unless it’s focus music - another idea I got from one of the shows. I get like 3 times as much done, and and finally getting over a 3-year burnout in digital marketing. Work-Life balance. That said, I binge listen to these with my wife. We often take road trips up I5 from Bay Area to the Oregon Coast to visit her mother. It is the first series we catch up on. I’m writing this from Northwest Indiana. We just drove here from Bay Area, CA. Yes, we spent most of the first day listening to Beyond the To-Do List. In fact, I’m going to go back to listen to the one on Tripp and Tyler again just to remind myself of the ebb and flow of getting projects going. FULL DISCLOSURE: I met Erik years ago at Blog Indiana. He was the silent one watching everything unfold from the back of the room while everyone networked like chickens with their heads cut off. You could see the gears turning in his head. I knew him more for his relentless Facebook obsession with bacon. My wife actually found the podcast series in attempts to get me to listen to podcasts as a way to be productive during our 700-mile-at-a-time treks. The first time, we heard about 7 episodes of Beyond the To=Do List going up to Oregon. The only reason we stopped was because we made our destination - at 5am. It was the first time I really listened to Podcasts without getting bored or believing the host was in love with their own voice. After about 20 podcasts I started looking up the info about the series, looking to see if their was other content: infographics, blogs, books... When I realized the host was the same silent Erik Fisher from Blog Indiana, I shouted, “holy s***,” so loud my wife about veered the car off the road in shock. I messages him later that night to let him know, “I just found it. I didn’t know it was you.” Way to stay under the radar and let everyone else parade for each other during networking sessions then come out with a great theme with incredible content. Now, that said, Erik, you have about 10 days to crank out another 10 hour of stuff so Katie and I have stuff to listen to while we drive back to the left coast. - to a more productive life Finn And, thank you. I always thought, “productivity,” trendy content bait that “coaches” talked about when they didn’t have case studies to back up their bulls**. You opened my eyes to show me that it’s a thing many of us go through. Great guests, great themes, and unabashed honesty.

One of my favorite podcasts
