All of us can from time to time need some productive inspiration. Productivity is a personal thing. What suits you might not work for me. At the same time, learning how other people are tackling challenges might give you some productive inspiration on how to make your day a little bit better.
Discussion forums are, in my opinion, underrated. Personally, I find a lot of help and inspiration in Facebook groups and on Reddit. Below, I have gathered a few of my favorite blogs and social media accounts.
