Podcasts for Personal Development Plan


3 Podcasts for Your Personal Development Plan

If you haven’t discovered the world of podcasting, you don’t realize what you’re missing. You can learn practically anything from listening to niched podcasts. For instance, here are a few excellent podcasts hosted by friends of mine:

The podcasts above are fantastic. I listen to them regularly. Yet this year I’ve discovered a few additional podcasts I’m adding to my personal development plan. Here they are along with a one word description of how they contribute to my personal development plan.

Beyond the To Do List (Productivity)

This is the show where we talk with people on all aspects of productivity, getting good work done, and living a good life. Erik Fisher talks with real people who practically implement productivity strategies in their professional and personal lives. You’ll be refreshed and inspired after hearing how others fail and succeed at daily productivity and continue to lead successful and meaningful lives.

Entrepreneur on Fire (Entrepreneurship)

Entrepreneur On Fire is all about inspiring millions. We want to help you find the inspiration you’re looking for to launch into your own entrepreneurial journey.

During the 30ish-minute interviews, the spotlighted entrepreneur tells us about their journey, sharing early failures, AHA moments, and providing insights about the techniques that are working for them right now. Each show wraps with a five-question “Lightning Round” that pulls priceless nuggets of information from these successful Entrepreneurs, encouraging listeners and fans to take action.

48 Days (Ideas)

Dan Miller specializes in creative thinking for increased personal and business success. He believes meaningful work blends our natural skills and abilities, our unique personality traits and our dreams and passions. Dan is active in helping individuals redirect careers, evaluate new income sources, and achieve balanced living. He believes that a clear sense of direction can help us become all that God designed us to be.

(NOTE: Dan and I are close friends, so his podcast is not new to me. However, I had not listened to it for a while and when I started back, I was amazed once again at how Dan stretches one’s creative thinking.)
