Productivity is all about finding greats tools to help you on a daily basis, but it is also about finding inspiration and career fulfilment. Here are my top 8 websites about productivity resources. Enjoy!
How kind of Michael Hyatt to share the list of the tools he personally uses? His suggestions include sections about blogging, social media, speaking, podcasting, productivity and writing. If we have a closer look at his productivity tools, I strongly agree with the suggestions for Chrome, DropBox and SnagIt. These are tools I personally use every single day.
If you don’t know Michael Hyatt yet, he is a successful writer and blogger writing mostly but not exclusively about personal development, leadership, productivity, platform, and publishing.
I find the articles on Entrepreneur’s website to be informative and inspiring for entrepreneurs of all horizons. They also have a section about news and articles you don’t want to miss about productivity tools. Entrepreneur also gets extra points for having Richard Branson as an author.
With a ton of articles about skill development, networking, job search, workplace success, entrepreneurship and career resources, the Personal Branding Blog is a one stop shop to help you become a more productive person. With their wide array of authors, you will find your favorites and sure will follow them on a regular basis. Make sure you hit the Productivity Skills tab for great productivity tips.
If you follow me on social medias, you will find that I repost quite a bit of Lifehacker’s material. I just love it! The Lifehacker website describe itself as a resource of tips, tricks, and downloads for getting things done. I would add that they do it with just the right amount of humour and spunk. What else can we ask for? Bonus points for the visual signature. Everything is better when it’s beautiful right?
Brain Pickings is for the curious mind. It is refreshing and beautiful. They describe themselves as “… a human-powered discovery engine for interestingness, a subjective lens on what matters in the world and why, bringing you things you didn’t know you were interested in — until you are.” I couldn’t phrase it better. They may not be giving you direct advice about productivity but to me, productivity is nourished with curiosity and I think Brain Pickings does just that. Extra points for having a woman is its founder.
You prefer to watch videos? The Productivity Playbook on Inc.’s website is a go-to. With videos about metrics, meetings, delegation, social media best practices and much more, you should get your fix. The 30 seconds advertisement before each video is quite annoying but the content of the videos is worth waiting.
Bo Burlingham from Inc. described Tom Peters as the ” …Red Bull of management thinkers. If the economy has got you down and you’re feeling out of sorts, a shot of Peters is guaranteed to pick you up and put you back on the road to excellence.” If you didn’t read at least one of his books yet, do it. Today. Or at least, spend a few minutes a day on his website. Tom Peters generosity is astonishing, his website is packed with material such as slides manifestos and videos about management, leadership, excellence and so much more. Be careful, it’s addicting.
An amazing website about finding your passions and taking the leap towards pursuing them in terms of career fulfilment. Balance between work and play, reinventing your career, finding your dream job, these are just a sample of the topics you will find there. Bonus points for the cute e-cards.
