3 Time-Saving Tools for Busy Professionals

As a busy professional, I am consistently looking for ways to save time. Below are 3 time-saving tools that I have found most useful.

1. Chore Buster

With two busy professionals in the same household, dividing chores around the house can be tricky. Dividing chores in a fixed way is one solution. But one can quickly get bored of doing the same thing everyday.

一个关于儒家核心价值观的对话

下面是一个中文BBS上发生的一个关于中国传统文化和价值观的对话,我简单编辑了一下,贴在这儿,也许对某些人有所助益。

[猴娘]  基督教中国化,会不会产生一个类似禅宗一样的新宗教呢?儒学和基督教的融合,存在什么样的困难?
...

[东沟]  ...儒家其实从鸦片战争之后就有所蚕食,五四以后开始被踹,文革时候彻底踹倒。然后改革开放的现代化把其经济基础彻底瓦解,连死灰复燃的机会都没了。一句话:我没有说文革十年毁掉中华文化,我说的是文革十年在中华文化的破房子上踹上最重也是最终的一脚。

今天儒家只能当历史瞻仰,不可能当做信仰。你可以对儒家有无限怀念,但你绝对不会三妻四妾,绝对不会趋义弃利,父母死了绝对不会三年守孝,要是女的更绝对不会三从,也绝对不会饿死事小,失节事大等等等等。你可能会“三思而后行”,会“满招损谦受益”,会“学而时习之”,会“己所不欲勿施于人”,但因为这些东西跟普世价值太像了,你不能说信奉他就是信奉儒家。

[火柴]  你真逗,因为不能“三妻四妾趋义弃利三年守孝三从饿死事小失节事大”,所以儒家灭了。因为“满招损谦受益,学而时习之,己所不欲勿施于人”跟普世价值太像了,所以不能叫儒家得叫普适价值。感情叫不叫儒家不取决于自己,取决于别人.如果有一天查理提出个“朋友来了我真高兴”的狗皮膏价值来,我们就得把自个的信仰改成狗皮膏了

[东沟]  听你启发,我要修正以下,“满招损谦受益,学而时习之,己所不欲勿施于人,朋友来了我真高兴”,这些东西就是生活箴言,算不上信仰。 Continue reading »
