Love this diagram of where to get real answers. I so agree. That said, as a peddler of 1) how to books, 2) motivation, and 3) advice, I think that these sources can be great catalysts and provocations. What do you think?
On another note, I have written about this book before and offered a podcast. I like this post from Mark at Strategy Central about Glen Hiemstra's Turning the Future into Revenue. In the post, he offers a nifty rendition of one of the more helpful diagrams from the book.
The Purple Wren likes 24 minute chunks of time for focusing. I have not written about chunking in a while, but this post brought back the happy memories - I still get emails from people using chunking or some derivation.
Evolving Ideas offers this nice collection of riffs and raffs about HR. Like Astha, I get sick of the whole, "we hate HR" or "I want a seat at the table" whines. Here's a nice snippet:
Nope, you didn't walk into the wrong blog-- it's just that I am tired of the whole HR isn't this, HR could be this and HR should be this discussion.

Yep. Let's quit whining and get down to business.
