Erik Fisher (Podcast Host / Productivity Expert)

For over 10 years, Erik Fisher has been the producer and host of the long-running Beyond The To-Do List Podcast. For over 450 show episodes, Erik has spoken with productivity experts on how they implement productivity strategies in their personal and professional lives, with the mission to explore all aspects of productivity as a means towards the true end goal: living a meaningful life. In the summer of 2005, Erik was working in a data entry position when he noticed that iTunes had an update, with a tab on the left-hand side entitled Podcasts. Checking it out, he instantly knew that this new magic of radio and TiVo mixed together was a breakthrough, and he knew instantly that he was going to create his own podcast one day. By 2007, Erik and a friend had a comedy podcast that was named by iTunes as one of the top 10 new comedy podcasts. During this time, Erik began interacting with the podcast community online and began cohosting on other shows as well. When one of those shows stopped being produced in January 2012, Erik knew it was time to start his own show. Erik knew two things: 1) needed to be something focused on productivity, and 2) he wanted to talk to people about how they did the great work that they did, but be able to approach it from various angles. Having struggled with ADHD, Erik had been on a productivity journey his whole life; creating systems and learning from others who had done the same helped him to not just function, but thrive when it came to getting things done and finding work/life balance. This led him to decide on the appropriately titled podcast, Beyond The To Do List.
