Todays guest, joining us on the Join Up Dots free podcast interview is a man who quite simply knows how to get things done…..Mr Erik Fisher
The master non-procrastinator.
The king of batching, the prince of the 80/20 principle, and the Lord of my favourite law too…Parkinsons Law.
He is the owner of the blog and podcast “Beyond The To Do List” and shows us all how we are wasting so much time doing stuff that quite simply will not push us onto doing the great stuff that we have to do.
Yes, Facebook is fun. Twitter is useful. And Youtube is wildly entertaining.
But none of them should be used when they do not have a need to be used.
If they are keeping us away from what we should be doing, then stop it.
But how do we do that? How do we beat the addiction that checking our emails 50 times a day seems to have on all of us?
And how did he manage to walk boldly into an area that we all struggle with…is he a recovering addict?
Well lets find out and not waste anymore time, you see I’m being productive
Well let’s bring onto the show to start joining up dots, as we discuss the words of Steve Jobs in todays Free podcast, with the one and only Erik Fisher.
During the show we discussed with Erik Fisher such weighty topics such as:
How as a kid he never did his homework, and kept on getting away with it, much to the chagrin of his teachers and parents, due to lack of time and desire!
Why he is planning to practice for 10,000 hours to beat the Guinness World Record for eating Jaffa Cakes whilst on a pogo-stick recording a podcast….yes, is that the weirdest thing you have heard on this show?
How building a train takes time, but once you start pushing it then soon it gets easier and easier to move…the same as a business!
Why library’s are the perfect place to go and learn and separate yourself from all the distractions in the world!
How everything you do in life is preparing you for the success you will have in later life if you want it bad enough!
