大石块The big rocks

One day an expert in time management was speaking to a group of business students and, to drive home a point, used an illustration those students will never forget. As he stood in front of the group of high-powered over-achievers he said, "Okay, time for a quiz.” Then he pulled out a one-gallon, wide-mouthed Mason jar and set it on the table in front of him. He then produced about a dozen fist-sized rocks and carefully placed them, one at a time, into the jar. When the jar was filled to the top and no more rocks would fit inside, he asked, "Is the jar full?" Everyone in the class said, "Yes."一天,一名时间管理专家在对一群学习商业的学生讲话时,为了论证一个论点,他用了一个令学生们永远难忘的 表述方式。站在这群出类拔萃的学生面前,他说:“来,做个小测试。”他拿出一个一加仑的广口玻璃瓶,放在他们面前的桌上。接着他拿出一小堆拳头大小的石块,小心翼翼、一块一块地放进瓶子里。等石块装满到瓶子,再也塞不下时,他问:“瓶子满了吗?”大家都说:“满了。”
He replied, "Really?"他问:“真的满了吗?”
He reached under the table and pulled out a bucket of gravel, then dumped some gravel in and shook the jar causing pieces of gravel to work themselves down into the space between the big rocks.他伸手到桌下提出一桶碎石,将碎石倒进瓶子里,摇晃瓶子让碎石漏进石块的间隙里去。
He asked the group once more, "Is the jar full?"他又问学生:“瓶子装满了吗?”
By this time the class was on to him. "Probably not," one of them answered.这时学生们领悟过来了。“可能还没满吧!”一个学生回答说。
"Good!" he replied.“好!”他说道。
He reached under the table and brought out a bucket of sand. He started dumping the sand in the jar and it went into all the spaces left between the rocks and the gravel. Once more he asked the question,"Is the jar full?"他伸手从桌底下拎出了一桶沙,把沙往瓶子里倒,沙子塞满了石块与碎石的缝隙,他又一次问:“满了吗?”
"No!" the class shouted.“没满!”全班学生大声回答。
Once again he said, "Good!"再一次,他说道:“好!”
Then he grabbed a pitcher of water and began to pour it in until the jar was filled to the brim. Then he looked at the class and asked, "What is the point of this illustration?" One eager student raised her hand and said, "The point is, no matter how full your schedule is, if you try really hard you can always fit some more things in!"然后他又拿出一大罐水往瓶子里倒,一直倒到水升到瓶口高。他看着学生们问“这个演示说明了什么?”一个学生急忙举手说:“说 明了:不管时间安排得多紧,只要你想办法,总是可以见缝插针地做更多的事情。”
"Good answer, but no," the speaker replied, "that’s not my point. The truth this illustration teaches us is: If you don’t put the big rocks in first, you’ll never get them in at all. What are the’big rocks" in your life? In my life they are my children... my wife... my loved ones... my education... my dreams... charities and worthy causes... teaching or mentoring others... doing things that I love... time for myself... my health... Remember to put these BIG ROCKS in first or you’ll never get them in at all."
“回答得好,不过,”专家说:“这不是我想说的。这个例子告诉我们一个事实:如果你不是先放大石块,以后 它们就永远摆不进去。你生活中的‘大石块’是什么呢?在我的生活中,那就是我的孩子、妻子、所爱的人、学习、梦想、善行和有价值的事业、教导他人、做我喜欢做的事、留给自己的时间、健康,等等。要记住,必须先放“大石块”,否则它们永远放不进去。”
If you sweat the little stuff then you’ll fill your life with little things to worry about that don’t really matter, and you’ll never have the real quality time you need to spend on the big,important stuff:the big rocks.如果你奔忙于琐事,那么这些无关紧要的小事就会充斥你的生活,让你成天操心,你就永远没办法腾出有质量的时间来处理你的大事和要事(大石块)。

    总感觉学校里英语老师的发音很别扭,想找真正的欧美国家的老师来教孩子英语,最好母语就是英语的老师。那天看到了英语的官网,里面的老师都是外教而且母语都是英语,并且用的是美国原版教材,还是一对一授课,当时就想着不会是骗人的吧,咨询了一下客服,给我看了相关的资格证书,自己也白的了一下,确定了确实是一个正规的教育机构才给孩子报名,没想到孩子进步这么快,现在孩子英语口语已经有了很大的进步,真的太感谢了

    今天是周天怎么还不带我出去玩耍啊,这是我儿子刚刚抱怨我的,哎,天天就知道玩,我也是醉了,其实我也是觉得我家孩子蛮不容易的,每天除了上学就是做作业,上培训班,偶尔带他出去放松一下而已,想想我们大人其实也不过如此,累了还想出去玩玩呢,更不要说孩子了,我孩子自从在英语上学习以来习惯了很多,尤其英语进步也是不少,英语的老师也是建议我们要给孩子一个轻松愉快的上学氛围,那我觉得这种教学理念挺对的。

    我家小女儿刚上小学,平时喜欢看书,我有时候也会给她放一些英语动画什么的,看她也能看的津津有味,觉得她对英语还是挺感兴趣的,所以就想这要不给她报个班来系统的学一学,最近经常听到有人提起英语这个机构,好像还是孙俪代言的,应该挺有名的。

    现在各种英语培训班摆在大家面前,而且划分的也较细,出国留学大部分都要考的雅思,市场上也就出现了各种雅思培训班,这就给学生们添难题了,口碑都不错,主打也都是帮学生取得最高分,保送出国等等各种优质口号。朋友向我推荐英语,因为我家孩子也要考雅思了。口碑还不错,就想去报个名。

    去年给孩子报了一个培训机构效果真的不太好,完全跟在学校上课没区别,一个班20几个小朋友,唯一好在一点老师的态度很不错,但是还没解决孩子英语成绩的问题呀,没办法只能换一家了,朋友推荐给我英语,听说一对一的线上教学而且是外教老师,果断来试了一堂课,自己觉得还行,孩子也挺有兴趣的,于是就决定先在英语学了,现在期末成绩快下来了,如果好的话明年继续
