It’s a lazy Sunday afternoon in my neck of the woods, and I’m in the mood to do some reading (as well as some writing).
One thing I’ve been meaning to post about for a long time is a list of time management/motivation blogs that are worth reading (beyond this one of course!).
Time Management Ninja
There’s a reason why this website shows up on the first page of Google for just about every keyword to do with time management – it simply rocks. Time Management Ninja is an almost encyclopedic resource of tips, tricks, and advice for squeezing more productivity out of each day. I recommend you start by reading the Best of Time Management Ninja.
Okay, the name of this blog could definitely be construed as being a little “politically incorrect” (or, at the very least, stereotyping). However, this site really does have some very useful information about achieving peak productivity and cutting down on wasted time. The blog portion of the site is very good, with a wealth of quality content available. One thing you will notice is that the site is always trying to coerce you into joining its newsletter membership (which is free, and you do get some nice bonus material). If you’re just after a casual read, then don’t feel pressured to do so. Go here to visit Asian Efficiency.
Pick The Brain
This popular website covers a number of elements of time management and personal development, as well as more general health and wellbeing topics. Although it’s perhaps not quite as good as Time Management Ninja or Asian Efficiency, you will still find plenty of useful advice here about managing your time effectively. I read this blog post about productivity tips from leading entrepreneurs earlier, and learned a great deal of useful information that I can apply to my own work.
When your time management blog makes it on to the Zen Habit’s “A List”, then you know you’ve made it. 43 Folders is one of the biggest names in productivity and time management, and has a track record stretching back a number of years. Although the site can be very confusing to use (and reads much more like a somewhat self-absorbed journal than a series of articles) there are some fantastic reads on here. My favorite is this particular article – with accompanying slideshow – which is all about overcoming those irritating distractions such as email and phone calls that rob us of productivity on a daily basis.
If you think your blog or website should also be on the list, then get in contact and let me know why.
