I Learn Best without Hyper-Motivational Speeches that Leave Me Depressed Later

A lot of podcasters and authors in the non-fiction fields 'wax eloquent' about what makes people productive and tend to just simply get people 'excited' and then ask them to buy their product as if that's the formula to success. I was skeptical with Erik's podcast at first because of the title as I am not interested in more brushing the surface of people who have some level of success. I was pleasantly surprised that his method is to simply interview successful people and probe into their habits a bit. This is by far the best way to learn - just observe others and learn from them. Let me do the 'applying'. Because of Erik's more introspective approach, I think he asks better questions because he doesn't sidetrack the conversation with hyper-motivational speeches every time he talks. Erik's is a good one.

One of the best

Beyond The To Do List has quietly become one of my favorite podcasts. Great guests, great questions, and every episode is different. Some podcasts are redundant because it's the same conversation over and over. Erik discusses the whole spectrum of work, life, and productivity. Refreshing!

This is one of the best podcasts. I have listenedto every episode and always find something new in each episode to use and work with to help me. THANK YOU! :D


Really appreciate the guests on this podcast. Erik has some big hitters in the show and asks perfect questions. He often asks the very question I have in my head. I also appreciate how Erik keeps the podcast to a manageable length; it could certainly be much longer but just the very best info is made part of the podcast.

So informative

As a new comer to the productivity concept, this podcast has opened my eyes so much. Not only the techniques and apps, but the guests that are experts in the field from all points of views/walks of life so you can find ones you relate to. They are the perfect length and all the right questions are being asked. Keep it up!

Great thank you Erik, I really like the positive, productivity atmosphere and state of mind your podcasts puts me in. Thank you.

Productivity for People

So many productivity podcasts focus on lists and techniques but Beyond the To-Do List focuses on the people behind the productivity. If you want to hear how people practically implement productivity strategies then listen to Erik's podcast. This is not another podcast that will leave you crying in the corner curled up in the fetal position bemoaning the fact that you'll never implement the strategies put forth by the host. No, you'll come away refreshed hearing how real people succeed and fail at daily productivity but aren't bound by rigid rules and lists.

Organization & Leadership @ it's Best

Erik gets the best guests and does a great job of asking the questions I would ask.

Motivating and inspiring

Engaging, enjoyable, and full of valuable content each week. As a young leader with ADHD, I enjoy the practical advice each episode.

Good medicine for the productivity challenged

Erik is not only skilled as a podcaster but also as an interviewer. He does a great job landing interviews with the best of the best and provides his audience a window into their lives, showing us how they operate and do what they do.

It's just amazing to me how much free content we have available that can help change your life and this podcast can do just that. I have actually used so many tips and tricks and have been far more productive. You should really subscribe.

How the "Experts" are Productive

By interviewing people in various fields about how they remain productive in their work and how they balance that with the rest of life EriK makes learning about productivity interesting again. I especially enjoy the "in a ideal world" question.

Excellent show on pushing the ante on daily productivity!

Love the host - that's a first requirement for the shows I consume - and love the guests - a second requirement (if it's an interview show) and I also LOVE productivity. Who doesn't? The show explores ways we can be even more productive but not necessarily more busy. I have already implemented several of the suggestions, and I loved the episode with Getting Things Done's David Allen. Thanks Erik and keep it up. Farnoosh Prolific Living
