In this week’s episode, I share why I recently went three full weeks without listening to a single podcast episode. I also share one of the most valuable resources that I’ve created for myself that helps me to better process every decision I make in life.

    Thank you for the time you spent talking about the Harry Potter series of books in this episode. I recently just finished reading the first book with my 7 year-old daughter (my first time reading the books though, like you I had seen the movies).

    Dumbledore is a wise man and thank YOU so much for applying some of his sayings to our journeys through life.

    I have just barely gotten past that part in the episode and have not yet finished the rest but wanted to let you know that I enjoyed your comments about Harry Potter in this episode.

  • Ben, I really appreciate that you took the time to share this feedback. I’m thrilled to know that you found the first half of the episode valuable. Thank You!

  • Patricia Romboletti

    Loved the whole show, but especially loved the Harry Potter segment. The way that you presented the info really tied it to concepts that will be helpful, so it was certainly not a waste of time. Also loved the quotes from the book—I too love quotes and those were great. Thanks for continuing with the great content—-always powerful, valuable and actionable!

  • Pat, thank you so much for taking the time to share your thoughts on the value of those first 36 minutes. I really appreciate it. I hope you have an amazing weekend!

  • Hi Cliff, just finished listening to this episode today. I never would have thought I could learn so much from Harry Potter. I’ve not read the books for years but I did enjoy them at the time. Next time I pop down to London I’ll think of you and your daughter as I pass King’s Cross Station!
    I found your quotes so helpful. I feel I’m on a similar journey to you – but currently quite a bit behind you. I used to really struggle with confidence and even confidence that God would bother with me. I’m still trying to work out my identity, but your first 3 quotes were inspirational and ones that I can agree with – sometimes it’s difficult to say them with confidence, but I am working on that! We’re all on a journey and I like to be future centred, but as you say, we need to enjoy every moment that God gives us. A lot to ponder. Thanks for your encouragement, Cliff! πŸ™‚

  • Ian, Thank you so much for taking the time to share your response to this episode. I do trust that you’ll come to the place where you’ll be able to have full confidence. I hope that this episode has inspired you to write down the beliefs that you know to be true but sometimes struggle to be mindful of regularly.

    I’ve got a lot of great feedback about the Harry Potter part of the episode. I’m so thrilled that it’s all been positive feedback up to this point.

    Our family did get to visit the 9 3/4 platform at King’s Cross when we visited London. However, I would have enjoyed it so much more had I already read the book at that time.

    Gives me something to look forward to during our next visit. πŸ˜‰

  • Hey Cliff, I loved the first 36 minutes. I love that you are confident being you and sharing everything. Karyn

  • Karyn, Thank you so much for taking the time to share your thoughts on the first 36 minutes. I’m honored to have you as a part of this community.

  • Mark Marsden

    Hi Cliff,

    Loved the whole show, including the beginning. I believe (as a great teacher said) that stories properly approached are not an escape from reality, but an invitation to live more deeply in it.

    Thanks for using HP as an invite!

    On an unrelated note, I’d love an episode on your productivity systems as you have them now. I believe a while back you were experimenting with Todoist as a tool, and I’d be curious to know what else you have learned.


  • Thank you for taking the time to provide feedback on this episode Mark. I really appreciate that. Also, thank you for the suggested topic. I’ll add productivity systems to my list of potential future topics.

    I hope you have an amazing weekend!

  • Tommy Turner

    I love the truths you’re living by. It’s amazing how incredible life can be when we read the Bible for ourselves and leave our preconceived ideas behind, isn’t it?

    Great episode!

  • It sure is. πŸ™‚
