如何创造更多时间 How to Create More Time

时间:2020-07-16 17:39:04 阅读: 作者:adminhwh

This is, of course, not an all-inclusive list, but it’s a good start to reclaiming some time back. These were some of my biggest time-wasters:当然我没法给出一个囊括所有可能的列表,但这个列表会是一个好开始,保证帮你争取不少时间。下面这些都是我本人浪费时间的常见行为:
1. Television – just stop it. Besides the occasional news, a movie every once in a while, some documentaries, I found it to be a huge time-waster.
电视——直接忽略。我发现,除了偶尔看看新闻、电影和纪录片,电视对我来说纯粹是浪费。
2. Internet/web – It’s really become the new television, and as such, an equivalent waste of time. Ask yourself this, “Do I really need to see another cat video?”
互联网/网络——这些其实也都是变相“电视”,纯粹浪费时间罢了。何不问问自己:“我就非得再看一个喵星人视频吗?”
3. Email – This was a more difficult one for me since responding to emails made me believe that I was being more productive. However, responding to emails all day was actually making me less productive by taking my focus off things that I really needed to get done. I now limit my time and frequency of responding to emails.
邮件——这个还真难下手。毕竟,我一直认为回复邮件可以提高效率。但事实却是,每天回复邮件反倒转移我的注意力,大大降低了效率。现在我已经限制了自己回复邮件的时间和频率。
Seven Ways to Create More Time In Your Day
每天创造更多时间的七大方法
1. Get Up Earlier
早起
Get up fifteen minutes earlier. If you're like most folk, your morning probably feels rushed: you drag yourself out of bed at the last possible minute, grab a hasty shower, maybe get some breakfast if you're lucky, sort out the kids/cat/partner and dash off to work.
提前15分钟起床。你要是像大部分人那样起床,早上可能会觉得有点赶:在最后一刻挣扎着起来,赶紧冲个澡,来得及的话就吃两口早餐,安顿好小孩/猫咪/爱人后冲出门上班。
Getting up just a bit earlier can give you some breathing space. Perhaps it'll give you time to actually sit down and enjoy your breakfast for once. Maybe you can use that fifteen minutes a day to read through that book or stack of journals that you keep meaning to get to.
稍微早点起床就不至于那么匆忙。或许至少可以真正坐下来吃顿早餐。你也可以利用每天早起的15分钟看看书或者整理一下记事本。
2. Create a Plan
制定计划
At the start of your workday, before you even check your emails, make a plan. Jot down the three most important tasks you want to accomplish that day. Put a big star next to the most important. Now, before you get into the busy work of emails and photocopying and tidying your desk, start on that important task and see it through to the end.
在你刚开始工作时,趁着还没查看邮件,赶紧定个计划吧。写下当天必须完成的三个最重要的任务,最重要的那个打上标记。然后趁着还没开始检查邮件、影印资料或整理办公桌等工作内容前,赶紧着手那个最重要的任务并保证完成它。
Surprisingly few people take the time to plan their workday, and end up spinning their wheels on a number of low-priority tasks without really accomplishing anything big.
奇怪的是,很少有人能有计划地工作,一天下来后还是周旋在几个效率甚低的任务上,最后其实什么实事都没做成。
3. Batch Tasks Together
分批处理任务
When you're going through the workday, try to keep similar tasks together. When you switch from one thing to another, your brain takes a few minutes to catch up and settle in: constantly jumping between answering emails and writing a report and tidying up your desk just means you'll lose track of where you'd got to. You might feel like you're working super-efficiently (because your mind is buzzing all over the place), but you'll actually be wasting a lot of time.
工作时可以将相似的任务并在一起处理。当你从一个任务换到另一个任务时,大脑会花几分钟进行调整:同时既要回复邮件、撰写报告,又要整理办公桌,到头来你可能会手足无措。虽然这样你可能觉得自己效率超级高(因为大脑一刻没停),但其实并没有优化利用时间。
If you need to answer a number of emails, do them all at once. The same goes for phone calls, filing, photocopying and other similar tasks.
如果要回复的邮件很多,那就一起处理掉。电话、整理文案、影印等同样如此。
4. Block Out Chunks of Time
腾出大段时间
Do you have some big project that you'd love to get round to? Maybe it's writing a novel, starting a business, training for a marathon... whatever your particular venture or goal, you never get around to making progress.
你是否有个大计划总想花时间去做?比如写小说、创业、或马拉松训练,不管个人想法或目标是什么,你就是还没时间去落实吧?
The best way to tackle big projects like this is to force them into your schedule. Spare time doesn't just appear from nowhere – you need to make a conscious effort to create it. Block out a weekend afternoon, for instance: tell family and friends you have another engagement that day. Then storm on ahead with that project. Trust me, you'll feel great for having made a start.
对付这种大计划的办法就是强行做出安排。时间就像海绵里的水,你得用心去挤才行。比如,你可以腾出一个周末下午的时间,告诉亲友自己另有安排,然后开始拿出行动吧。相信我,一旦开始你就会感到妙不可言。
5. Don't Multitask
不要一心多用
Although multitasking feels efficient – because it feels busy – it actually loses you time. By sticking to doing one thing at a time, you'll be much more focused and able to produce your best work: there's nothing efficient about rushing a job which you then end up having to redo.
虽然同时处理多个任务会使你感到很有效率(因为一直在忙),但其实很耗时间。坚持一次只做一件事,你会更专注更有效率:与其匆忙“鬼画符”后又返工,还不如先专心做好一件事呢。
6. Stay Focused
保持专注
When you are working on a task, make a conscious effort to remain focused. Sure, you'll have intrusive thoughts like maybe I should check my email or this desk could really do with tidying. Just recognize that those thoughts are impulses which you don't need to give into. If you think of something while you're working on your task like I really must phone Joe, then just make a note on a bit of paper or in your diary so you don't forget – and get on with the task at hand.
工作时一定要努力保持专注。当然,你可能会时不时想到“该查看邮件了”或“办公桌真该整理一下了”,但请记住:这些都只是一时想法,不要陷进去。如果你工作时想到别的事情,比如“我真得打电话给乔了”,那就在纸上或记事本上写下来以免忘记,然后继续手头的工作。
You'll accomplish much more by working in a deliberately focused way than if you let yourself jump around from task to task as things come to mind.
刻意保持专注比思想散漫时的工作效率要高得多。
7. Finish Work On Time
按时完成工作
Finally, one of the best ways to make more time in your life is to finish your work on time! If you work for an employer, make an effort to leave the office on time – at least a couple of days each week. (I know this is difficult if your workplace has a long-hours culture).
最后,在生活中创造更多时间的办法就是——按时完成工作!如果你是上班族,就确保能按时下班——至少每周能有那么几天。(当然,如果你的公司有加班的习惯,这么做也不那么容易。
If you work for yourself, you need to be even more self-disciplined, as your work is likely to be very easily accessible when you're at home! Some good ways to create a boundary at the end of the day are to keep your work separate from the rooms in your house where you relax. You could also schedule something social in the evening (perhaps meeting friends for a drink) so that you can't get caught up in "just one more email".
如果你是为自己工作,那就得更加自律了,因为这样你在家也很方便办公!区分一天工作结束的办法就是,将办公的地方与休息的地方分开来。你也可以在晚上安排一些交际活动(比如跟朋友喝一杯),这样你就不会为“又来了一封邮件”犯难了。

    我说一起报英语,我那晚几分钟出生的弟弟还死活不乐意,非要和同学去上培训班。结果怎么样,我英语演讲拿了第三名,他连初赛都没过!

    看儿子的课程回放,总是会不自觉的被逗笑。最近他积极性特别高,每次上完就问我明天上不上。他的口语发音感觉越来越标准了,果然还是跟着口音纯正的北美老师学才会学的正宗~

    今天上课的时候我儿子表现很好,我给儿子报了个英语,每天晚上8点的课,一个小时差不多吧,孩子上课时很认真,老师也很有技巧,跟中式的教学不完全一样,书本都是国外版的,很专业,我每天只要有时间就会在一边旁听一下,确实很好讲的,我每次上完课也都是受益匪浅,以后这样的时光还是要多一些比较好。

    我跟宝宝现在聊得最多的就是他的英语老师和他的英语学习情况,我是一个很爱叨叨的妈妈,但是我很爱跟孩子聊天,我觉得跟孩子聊天是件很重要的事情,当然要从他的兴趣点聊起,我给孩子报了英语,已经快两个月了吧,他还能感兴趣,我每天都会检查他,他会跟我说很多他在课上有趣的事情,老师也很负责任,每天都会道声晚安跟孩子,这让我也学到了很多与孩子相处的东西。赞。

    女儿跟我说现在跟英语的老师学习非常开心,每天都有不一样的惊喜,老师很会教东西,她从来没这么轻松的学过英语,以前总是死记硬背,现在不知不觉的就把单词记住了。班级里的同学都特别羡慕她的英语成绩,如果有机会一定要当面感谢一下英语以及外教老师们能给孩子的学习带来这么大的帮助。

    现在学英语真是太方便了,每次女儿上课并不用跑到培训班去,而是打开电脑就可以,课程是提前约好的,不用来回接送孩子,省心了不少

    现在的家长越来越重视孩子的英语学习,特别是每到假期来临的时候都会给孩子报个少儿英语班,而现在市场上的培训机构鱼龙混杂,我觉得吧,家长购买的时候最好要多细分还筛选几家最后再来做决定。抱着急切又渴望的心带着孩子来试听了下感觉还不错,听朋友介绍了她家小孩的英语在这次的期末考试考上了全班第三名,老师还在学校通报表扬呢,听家长介绍后说这家效果不错

    我家大宝贝从今年3月份开始在英语上学习,到现在还不到半年时间,昨天我旁听了一下他的课程,666啊,曾经的学渣儿子,如今已经可以和外教老师简单对话了,真是让我高兴!希望等今年课程全部学完,儿子能成为学霸哈哈哈,到时候我就给英语送一面锦旗。。。

    听老妈说我家楼下的小美女高中就在考英语四六级,现在的孩子们真的是很努力,我们小时候那会可没这么优秀,据说是在英语上学习了快一年了吧,本来孩子的英语成绩就很好,再加上孩子爱学习,一年的时间就在准备四级了,应该是个很专业的教育平台,每次遇到小美女的妈妈,夸她的时候妈妈就会跟我们介绍英语怎么怎么好,看来应该是名不虚传了。
