How to Be What You Do: Beyond the To Do List Interview

Erik Fisher has a great podcast called “Beyond the To Do List,” and he recently interviewed me for it. I’m a fan of well-done podcasts, and this is one you’re going to want to take note of.

Beyond the To Do List

In this episode, we talk about:

  • How I “turned pro” as a writer
  • What it takes to find your calling
  • The importance of practicing in public
  • Why you’re probably already that thing you want to be
  • Slowing down instead of speeding up
  • Making commitments
  • And more!

You can listen to the interview by clicking the player up above (go here if you can’t see an audio player in RSS or email).

Also, Erik’s show notes from our talk are available here (plus some links to killer resources). And make sure you subscribe to the podcast (it’s free).

By the way, I’d love to hear your thoughts on this matter raised in the interview: We are more than what we do, but we also become what we practice. In other words, we play some part in our own destiny.

What do you think is the relationship between identity and action? Share in the comments.

If this sort of thing is interesting to you, check out my audio program, The Writer’s Studio. It’s full of an hour of exclusive content about how I chose myself and began becoming a writer.
