Online Inspirations

If a dull job or a bit of spring fever have you feeling restless, perhaps you need a change. Or maybe you just need a little motivation.

Here are three people who blog on careers, business and inspiration:

· Emmanuel Lopez of Toronto pens the Adventures of Motivatorman, using his life and movie heroes to encourage people to change. He wrote about his "low energy funk" and how seeing Chris Gardner, author of "The Pursuit of Happyness" moved him forward. His blog at http://motivatorman.blogspot.com often features movie snippets or song lyrics.

· Leadership trainer Robin Sharma, author of "The Greatness Guide" and "The Monk Who Sold His Ferrari," writes short snappy reminders to readers -- "the hard stuff is the great stuff" -- at http://www.robinsharma.com.

· Those who want to feel fit, motivated and successful can check out Aussie fitness guru and author Craig Harper's chatty blog at http://www.craigharper.com.au. He muses on topics such as personal mission statements and the art of connection as well as the need occasionally to unplug and head to the beach.
