多产的生活完全和拥有合适的装备密不可分,拥有一套实用工具是实现多产的关键。下面列出的单子绝非囊括一切,但着眼于每个人都应当有的最基本的工具。

1.笔记本电脑-大多数情况下,台式机又笨又沉,笔记本电脑的便携性使得您能够随时随地办公。当在新鲜刺激的环境中远程办公时,我的脑袋会闪出火花,想到一些富有创造性的想法。

2.4个月的日历-瞥一眼日历,为下面四个月做好打算。为了对未来繁忙日程有个积极欢欣的看法,一本硬质封面的日历是必不可少的。甚至你可以计划休息一个月。

3.卷尺-用手或鞋子来测量长度并不精确。给自己准备一个25英尺的卷尺就能够处理所有测量的需要。

4.便携式GPS-迷路不是件乐事。一架GPS可以基本上消除迷路的可能。在最近的一次到哥斯达黎加的假期中,我们的GARMIN GPS(美国GARMIN全球定位系统)在很多场合下使我们少走了很多弯路。

5.免提手机- 为什么在可以选择免提手机的时候任何一个健全的人还要一手开车一手接听形状怪异的手机?当我不得不堡电话粥时,我喜欢同时做其它事情。免提手机使我能够这样去做,不管我在哪里。

6.杀菌剂-由于在每个免下车窗口或者其它的小吃店,手边没有肥皂可以使用。我认为消毒剂是可以让我每天远离细菌感染的工具。保持健康!吃东西前请先将手消毒。

7.多用螺丝起-环顾四周,我敢打赌周围大多数人造的物品都是用螺丝结合在一起。你这一辈子将会需要把不同大小和种类的东西组装在一起。一只合适的具有很多种类螺丝头的多功能起子是你最好的办法。

8.钳子-在固定和操纵一些小物件时双手并不是最有效的工具。这时就需要手边有钳子。一把钳子可能还不行。或许您需要一套不同大小和尺寸的钳子来应付不同的工作。可能最常使用的是尖嘴钳,但是槽钳以及剥线钳有时也会用到。

9.锤子-一直以来都是最好使的工具。它具有无限的实际应用。一把好而陈旧16盎士的拨打锤可以在一生为您提供可靠服务。

10.急救箱-人类没有钛那样结实。当你自己或者关心的人受伤了,急救箱就成了你所拥有的最重要的东西。

11.滤水器-人们用宝贵的生命去挣钱然后将钱浪费在购买已经免费的东西上。这种现象表示生产力倒转了。一个Brita的滤水器能把自来水变得和日杂店里买到的任何东西一样可口,更不用提你每每喝上一口的时候节省了多少钱。

 

12.不同类型的胶带-透明胶带、遮蔽胶带以及管道用胶带等等,这些你都会有需要。胶带可能是自锤子后第二大发明。

 

13.优质太阳镜-大多数人认为视觉是最重要的感觉。质量合格的太阳镜保护人类的眼睛免收太阳紫外辐射的伤害。这些辐射会导致短期或长期的视觉问题如白内障、失明以及各种不同类型的眼部癌症。

 

14.有闹铃的手表-手表没有必要太奇特。关键是能够告知时间并且能设置闹铃来提醒人们。依我的经验来看,那些戴手表的人往往很善于管理支配他们的时间。

 

15。延长绳路-因为插座不总是在该在的地方。如果某一家庭的用电能够无线传输那将会是多么棒的一件事情。

 

16.工作手套-很不幸地是人们的双手皮肤如同身体其它部分一样是那么地脆弱。有时候你需要用双手去完成的工作已经超过了裸露的皮肤所能忍耐的极限。这正是一副粗糙的工作手套的有用之处,它使你免于几天的灼热之苦。

 

17.手电筒-灯火熄灭,伸手不见五指的情况下会发生什么事情?家中和车里最好常备一支明亮的质量合格的装有一套新电池的手电筒。

 

18.橡皮圈-橡皮圈是最简单的万能用品。它的实际用途有很多,没有办法说得完。

 

19.直爬梯-如果你不是沙奎尔-奥尼尔,那么你可能会经常需要用到直爬梯。一个标准的6英尺高的铝制直爬梯应当符合绝大多数人的需要。

 

20.吸尘器-能够很方便地立即清理干净一大堆干的湿的脏乱物将会节省大量的宝贵时间。一只16加仑容量6.5马力的吸尘器能够处理任何主要的卫生清洁工作。

 

21.灭火器-显而易见,灭火器几乎没用除非遇见麻烦房子着火了。如果你没有灭火器那将是很盲目的。

 

22.耳塞-耳塞 是我最喜欢的简单工具之一。当我在可以想象的嘈杂的公共场所时,有了它们我就能集中精力做自己的事情(通常是读书或者写东西)。当你在人多吵闹的飞机上想打个盹时,它们也起了很大作用。#p#分页标题#e#

 

23.厚型剪刀-一把厚型剪刀能够剪开厚纸板,剪开包装带和一些粗糙的材料,它是种常备的工具。你只需一把9-10英寸锯齿刃的剪刀,就几乎可以剪开任何东西。

 

24.多用刀具-这是一种多合一的万能工具,是家庭必备的。这些小工具能解决许许多多不同的问题。我个人有一把编号为830039的多功能刀具,我很喜爱它。

 

25.弹力绳-将东西系住,包在一起…弹力绳就像巨大的带钩子的橡皮圈。当你需要的时候你会发现拥有弹力绳是多么实用。

 

26.活动扳手-如果螺丝不能将物品拧在一起那肯定得用到螺母和螺栓了。你最终将会整修家具、用具、自行车等物品上的螺栓。一套3节活动扳手刚好能满足需要。

 

27.轻质无绳钻-一把无绳钻是很好的万能工具。根据你购买的钻头种类,可以用它在各种东西表面钻出大小各异的孔来。或者你也可以把它当成电动螺丝起使用。在购买便携式钻子之前,核对下生产厂商的担保书以及可以使用的部件。像Craftsman之类受欢迎的品牌是你最明智的选择。

 

28.绳索夹子-绳索夹子主要是用来夹纸张的夹子,固定强度是普通夹子的4倍,实用性是普通夹子的10倍。通常在厨房里我用它们来使麦片保持新鲜,在办公室则用来固定大摞的纸张,而在车库里我用它们来夹土壤和肥料的袋子,以免泄漏。

 

29.USB闪存盘-是最实用的电脑附件,USB闪存盘几乎取代了老的软盘和CD光盘。它体积小,存取速度快,存储空间也要大得多。

 

30.档案柜-很不幸,文书工作还没有完全消失。也许不久的将来会消失,可是目前一个小的档案柜依旧是存放重要收据、病历卡、标签等重要文件的理想之处。

 

译文:30 Useful Tools Everyone Should Own


Productive living is all about being properly equipped. Maintaining an essential set of useful tools is the key to the productivity kingdom. The list below is by no means all-inclusive, but instead concentrates on the very basics, the essential supplies everyone should own.

  1. Laptop Computer – In most cases the desktop computer is dead weight. The portability of a laptop provides you with the flexibility of using the whole world as your personal office space. Some of my most creative ideas come to fruition while working remotely in fresh, stimulating environments.
  2. 4 Month Calendar – Take a quick glance at the next four months in one clean shot. A hard copy 4 month calendar is an indispensible tool for capturing an elevated view of a busy schedule. Even better, you can for free.
  3. Measuring Tape – Measuring things by the length of your hand or shoe isn’t exactly an accurate practice. Get yourself a 25 foot retractable measuring tape that will be capable of handling all of your measuring needs.
  4. Portable GPS – Being truly lost is not a fun feeling. A GPS basically eliminates this possibility. During a recent vacation to Costa Rica our pretty much saved our rear ends on multiple occasions.
  5. Cell Phone with Handsfree – Why would any sane person drive one-handed while holding an odd shaped phone to their ear when they have the option to use a handsfree set? When I’m forced to be on a long phone call, I like to get other things done at the same time. My handsfree cell phone allows me to do this no matter where I am.
  6. Hand Sanitizer – Because there isn’t a sink and bar of soap conveniently located outside of every drive-through window or various other snack time locations. In my mind, hand sanitizer is a tool, a tool that prevents me from infecting my body with germs every single day. Keep yourself healthy! your hands before you eat!
  7. Multi-head Screwdriver – Take a look around. I bet most of the manmade objects around you are being held together by screws. Throughout your lifetime you’re going to need to tighten a whole lot of them in all different sizes and varieties. A decent multi-head screwdriver with a wide assortment of screwdriver heads is your best bet.
  8. Pliers – Your hands are not the most effective tool for gripping and maneuvering small objects. That’s where come in handy. One set of pliers will not do the trick either. Likely, you will need a small assortment of pliers in various styles and sizes for different kinds of jobs. You’ll probably use needle-nose pliers most often, but heavy grooved pliers and wire cutting pliers will come in handy at times too.
  9. Hammer – The single greatest tool of all time. The hammer has an infinite set of practical applications. A good old 16 oz claw hammer will provide a lifetime of reliable service.
  10. First Aid Kit – Human beings are not made of titanium. When you or someone you care about gets injured, a becomes the single most important thing you own.
  11. Water Filter – People trade precious hours of their lives for dollars and then waste the dollars buying something that’s already free. This scenario represents the inverse of productivity. A water filter makes tap water taste just as good as anything you’ll find at the grocery store, not to mention you’ll be saving money every time you take a sip.
  12. Various Types of Tape – Scotch tape, masking tape and duct tape… you need them all. Tape may very well be the second greatest invention after the hammer.
  13. Quality Sunglasses – Most people consider sight to be their most important sense. Quality sunglasses protect the human eyes from being destroyed by the sun’s ultraviolet radiation. This radiation can lead to short-term and long-term ocular problems such as cataracts, blindness and various forms of eye cancer.
  14. Wrist Watch with Alarm – A wrist watch doesn’t have to be fancy. Being able to tell the time and set an alarm for last minute reminders is the key. It has been my experience that people who wear wrist watches are noticeably better at managing their time.
  15. Extension Cord – Because an electrical outlet is not always where it should be. How great will it be when household electrical power is transmitted wirelessly?
  16. Work Gloves – Unfortunately, human hands are covered with fragile skin just like the rest of the body. Sometimes you need to use your hands to accomplish a task that requires a durability threshold beyond that of your exposed skin. This is where a rugged set of work gloves saves you from a few days worth of blistering agony.
  17. Flashlight – What happens when the lights go out and its pitch dark? Always keep a bright, quality flashlight with a fresh set of batteries in both your home and automobile.
  18. Rubber Bands – Rubber bands are simple, functional and versatile. There is an endless list of for a rudder band.
  19. Step Ladder – If your name isn’t Shaquille O’Neil, you’ll probably need a step ladder quite frequently throughout your lifetime. A standard 6 foot aluminum step ladder should fit most people’s needs.
  20. Shop Vacuum – The convenience of being able to instantly clean up wet and dry chunks of a hefty mess can be quite a priceless time saver. A shop-vac will be capable of handling almost any major clean-up job.
  21. Fire Extinguisher – This one is a no-brainer. Completely useless until the moment the sh*t hits the fan and the house is burning to the ground. If you don’t own a fire extinguisher, you’re being foolishly optimistic.
  22. Earplugs – Earplugs are one of my favorite simple tools. They allow me to concentrate on my work (usually reading or writing) when I am in the nosiest public environments imaginable. They’re also great when you’re trying to catch some shuteye on a busy airline flight.
  23. Heavy-duty Scissors – A heavy-duty pair of scissors capable of cutting through thick cardboard, packaging zip ties and other rugged materials is always a handy tool to have around. Get a pair with a 9 – 10 inch serrated blade and you’ll have the ability to cut through almost anything.
  24. Leatherman – This is the all-in-one multi-tool you should never leave home without. These little tools can handle a wide plethora of different jobs. I personally own the and I love it.
  25. Bungee Cords – Tie things down, wrap things together… Bungee cords are like giant rubber bands with hooks. They’re darn practical to have around when you need them!
  26. Adjustable Wrench – If screws aren’t holding it together then nuts and bolts almost certainly are. You will eventually need to adjust the bolts on furniture, appliances, bicycles, etc. A basic should fit the bill just fine.
  27. Lightweight Cordless Drill – A cordless drill can be a pretty versatile tool. Depending on the kinds of bits you buy, it could be used to drill various sized holes in various surfaces. Or you could use it as an electric screwdriver. Before you buy a portable drill, check the manufacturer warranty as well as the availability of parts. Popular tool manufacturers such as are your best bet.
  28. Binder Clips – are basically big paper clips with 4 times the holding strength and 10 times the versatility. I use them regularly in the kitchen to keep the cereal fresh, in the office to hold large mounds of paper together and in the garage to keep various bags soil and fertilizer from spilling.
  29. USB Flash Drive – The most practical accessory for a computer, the USB flash drive pretty much killed off prehistoric floppy disks and CDRW discs. A USB flash drive is a smaller, faster option with a lot more storage space.
  30. Filing Cabinet – Unfortunately, paperwork hasn’t completely vanished off the face of the planet just yet. Maybe someday, but for now a small filing cabinet is still great place to organize all your important receipts, medical records, titles, etc.

边缘介词(Marginal Prepositions)指的是那些在语法功能上与介词相似的词。本文 些貌似动词却非动词的边缘介词。与一般介词不同的是,这类介词的词形较特别:除少数词以动词原形出现以外,大多数词为分词形式。由于其独特的词形,加上一般语法书上又没有给出详尽的用法说明及例句,人们往往很难将这些词同介词联系在一起。事实上,作为一种较为特殊的介词,它们同样具有一般介词所具有的某些语法功能,在现代英语中的运用也并不少见。例如《大学英语》第一册中有这样的一个句子“...with more dignity than I would have thought possible considering his appearance.” 句中的“considering”就是一个十分常见的边缘介词。对于每个英语学习者来说,了解并掌握一些类似的边缘介词是很有必要的。这里,我向读者介绍一些常见的类似动词的边缘介词。
  一、 形似现在分词的边缘介词
  英语中,绝大多数类似动词的边缘介词都为现在分词形式,其中最为常见的有以下一些:
  1.barring(不包括,如果没有):
  Barring special circumstances, the plane will arrive on schedule.
  如无特殊情况,飞机将准时到达。
  2.concerning(关于,就……来说):
  We had several discussions concerning the matter.
  关于这事,我们已讨论好几次了。
  3.considering(鉴于,就……而论):
  Considering his age, he writes quite well.
  以他的年龄来看,他写得相当不错。
  4.excepting(除……之外),该词用于句首或not,without,always之后。
  Everyone helped, not excepting John.
  每个人都帮了一把,连约翰也不例外。
