Happy Canadian Thanksgiving!

On today’s episode of the Project Management for the Masses Podcast, I speak with Erik Fisher, host of the Beyond the To-Do List Podcast, and author of the book Beyond the To-Do List: Goals.

As project managers, I believe we cannot give what we don’t have.  I think it is absolutely important to have our own personal projects in order if we are to manage projects effectively for other people. Personal productivity is at the heart of moving our lives forward. I hope you enjoy my conversation with Erik!

Read Erik’s book with me

photoDuring today’s episode I decided to create a small book club to read Erik Fisher’s book.  In this club, I will set up a private message board for us to discuss the book as we read it, and also a regular (either weekly or bi-weekly) group call.

The cool thing is: Erik might even join us on this club!

How often have you had the chance to read a book and have the author available to comment on it as you go?

I plan on starting this soon, so if you’d like in and be on this with Erik and I, first buy the book, then contact me.

    Hey Cesar,
    It’s your lucky competition winner here!
    Another great podcast.  You could argue I’m biased, but what the heck! 🙂
    Some great thoughts from Eric.  I particularly liked the tip about taking time to consider what you’re going to do during the day.  Even if it’s just 15mins.  I can echo what you said about having a cup of coffee and just thinking.
    Look forward to the next episode – keep them coming! 🙂
