I’ve been away for over a week on holiday hence the lack of posts recently. As is typical after time away, I’m now trying to catch up with things. One of the first things I did when I got back home was to get up to date with my favorite sites (I have quite a few productivity blogs bookmarked on my Delicious account so it certainly took a while). As I was doing it, I got to thinking about which of these sites really stood out for me and provided top content on a regular basis. In an attempt to answer this I’ve come up with my personal top ten productivity blogs list. Bear in mind, it’s by no means definitive. There are so many sites out there that I could quite easily change my mind tomorow. However, I hope you find it useful.

  • Lifehack.org/Lifehacker
    I’m technically cheating by combining these two but they are the big sites in productivity circles and if you haven’t got them bookmarked, where have you been? Both cover lifehacks, productivity and GTD issues and have numerous posts everyday. If you are not subscribed to their feeds you are definitely missing out.
  • Zen Habits
    This blog is probably the most popular productivity related blog out there and has new, original and useful content practically every day without sacrificing quality. I really don’t know how Leo does it! The blog focuses on achieving more by doing less and simplifying your life.
  • Trizle
    A refreshing viewpoint on business practise and how to become more productive, particularly in the workplace, all written in a unique no nonsense style. Why don’t you rock your business?
  • Ririan Project
    The thing I like about the Ririan Project is it’s all top tens and lists, such as nine great ways to live a more positive life and eleven great ways to start your day, which makes for some very accessible and straight to the point content. The site covers the whole scale of personal development, from health to planning and relationships.
  • David Seah
    While most known perhaps for his printable CEO series (which in itself would be enough to include him in this list), the site has many interesting posts, often written from first hand experience; as a freelancer keeping yourself motivated and productive is always important.

The remaining five are no less important that the blogs above, but there is only so much I can say to describe them all, and at the end of the day a great site is a great site. There is no need to explain or justify them any further.
