You love the sense of satisfaction and accomplishment you feel when you check off an item on your to-do list as done, completed, out the door, in the can. But so many things can keep you from getting to that moment, from unexpected emergencies to long and dragged-out meetings to getting waylaid by a  conversation with a co-worker in the hallway.

当你把一个待办事项从你的to-do清单中勾掉、搞定、一脚踢飞的时候,你一定爱死那种满足感和成就感了。但是很多事情总是阻碍你到达那个时刻,从没有预见的突发事件和拖沓冗长的会议,到在走廊里被撞见的同事逮到闲扯个老半天。

Hack 92: Quickly Search Within Specific Websites from the Address Bar

第92招:在地址栏里快速搜索指定网站的相关内容

Level Medium

难易程度:中等

Platform Web (Firefox/Chrome)

实现平台:需要Firefox或者Chrome浏览器

Cost Free

是否免费:是

 

Most web browsers have a built-in search box next to or integrated with the address bar for quick access to search engines. By default, this search box is a front door to major engines like Google or Bing. However, sometimes you know what site you want to search within, like Wikipedia or Amazon, but you want to skip the part where you go to Google or Bing results first, and instead just search the site directly using your browser’s built-in search feature. Keyword searches are customizable, keyword-based searches that let you do just that: execute a search from your Firefox or Chrome address bar. Using these special searches significantly speeds up queries on your no default searches at sites such as IMDB.com or YouTube.

许多浏览器都自带搜索栏或者可以直接在地址栏里面搜索。默认的情况下,他们是使用Google或者Bing的搜索引擎。但是,如果你想直接搜索某个网站内的内容的时候(例如淘宝或者亚马逊),可以利用浏览器自带搜索引擎的一些特性来实现这一目的。关键词搜索是可以订制的,利用浏览器自带的关键词搜索,可以在Firefox或者Chrome的地址栏里面完成搜索。你可以很快的搜索IMDB或者YouTube上的内容。

Hack 91: Subscribe to Websites with RSS

第91招:如何用RSS订阅网站的内容

Level Medium

难易程度:中等

Platform All

实现平台:所有平台

Cost Free

是否免费:是

Information from websites such as newspaper sites or weblogs updates frequently throughout the day, week, or month. You could waste time visiting each site you like, looking for new content, much as you’d go to the newsstand to check for the newest issue of your favorite magazine. But checking all the sites you like every day is tedious and unnecessary. As with a magazine subscription that automatically brings each new issue to your door, you can subscribe to website feeds that push information to your online door.

网站或者博客上的信息是经常会更新的,当然,也可以经常去这些网站或者博客去查看是否有新的内容,就像到报亭里面去看有没有新一期的杂志那样。但是这个工作是非常无聊且浪费时间的。就像订阅杂志一样,你也可以通过RSS订阅网站的信息。

Hack 90: Google Like a Pro

第90招:Google专家

Level Easy

难易程度:简单

Platform Web

实现平台:网络

Cost Free

是否免费:是

When you search the Web using Google (http://google.com), you’re likely to get tens of thousands of web page results that contain your search terms. But who has time to go through them all? Instead, make the engine narrow down its answers for you. Google’s single, one-line input box conceals a host of functionality that can decrease web search results down to the most relevant pages. Clicking through thousands of links is time-consuming and unnecessary. Get fewer, more relevant search results with Google’s advanced search operators.

这种情况你一定经历过:输入一个关键词到Google里,然后点击搜索,结果出现成千上万的网页。当然,我们不可能一一的去阅读这些网页,所以,我们需要缩小我们的搜索范围。Google提供一系列的功能来帮助我们找到我们最想要的结果,而这些功能就在Google的高级搜索里面。

There’s no better feeling than checking something off your to-do list. Done! Finished! Mission accomplished! Yet it’s so easy to let a whole day or week go by without knocking one task off your list. How does that happen?  Well, your to-do list can be a tool that guides you through your work, or it can be a big fat pillar of undone time bombs taunting you and your unproductive inadequacy. It all depends on how you write it.

没有比从to-do清单中把任务勾掉更爽的事了。搞定!收工!任务完成!但是,也可能,整整一天,甚至一个星期,都没有一个任务被勾掉。这怎么会发生呢?好吧,to-do清单既可以成为你工作的指导工具,同时也可能成为一颗臃肿的定时炸弹,不断嘲笑着你的效率低下。这完全取决于你怎么来制定你的to-do清单。

lifehacker-中译本-第十章-前言

Never before have humans been able to instantly access such a vast repository of information in their households as we do today with the World Wide Web. That storehouse of information (and misinformation) grows by leaps and bounds every day. With the proliferation of publishing tools such as blogs, Facebook, and Twitter, as well as capture devices such as smartphones and digital cameras, anyone can publish online, and millions do.

互联网给人类提供了比以往任何时候都更丰富、更便捷的资讯。这些资讯(其中也不乏错误资讯)的数量每天都在飞速的增加。社交软件(例如博客、Facebook、Twitter)的使用和智能手机的普及让每个人都能在互联网上发布资讯,每天都有成千上万的人在互联网上发布着各式各样的资讯。

Chapter 3   Trick Yourself into Getting Done

第三章  忽悠自己把事情完成

 

Just as Mom used to grind up that bitter pill in a bowl of ice cream, you can make working on tough tasks easier to swallow. Checking an item off your to-do list — and the sense of satisfaction and completion that comes with that simple action — is one of the best things that happens during your workday. But there are roadblocks, both environmental and just plain mental, on the way to “done.”

就像妈妈经常会把很苦的药片磨碎在一大碗冰激凌里一样,你可以让很难的工作更容易被搞定。把一件要事从你的to-do清单中划掉——以及这个动作所带来的成就感和满足感——是你一天工作中最爽的事情之一。但是,总是有拦路虎,阻碍你把任务完成,他们可能来自外部环境,也可能仅仅来自精神上。
