七個方法實現新年新希望

新年新希望,有人立志健身減重,有人希望事業更上一層樓,許下新希望不難,難的是如何貫徹實行。進入本文前,請先想想如何表達以下單字:
a) 達標
b) 戰略
c) 可量化的

Making a resolution is quite a good way to jump-start a new year. According to a survey, however, while 45% of Americans regularly make New Year’s resolutions, only 8% can actually keep them. So, how do those 8% do it? Here are some useful tips to play your cards right:
年初許下新希望,是一個相當正面的做法。然而根據調查,雖然45%美國人會許下新年新希望,卻只有8%能夠實現。這8%的人是如何辦到的?以下是行家提供的有效秘訣:

1. Keep your resolution top-of-mind all year.
Keep a board in your office with your goals and look at it every day. Saying them is one thing. Having them in front of you to remind you is the key to a) accomplishing goals.
一、一整年都放在心上
在辦公室放一塊寫有目標的板子,天天看。說出新希望是一回事,如要達成目標,必須將它放在面前來提醒自己。

2. Make it a daily habit.
Keeping a resolution means making it a habit. Do the activity every day. After a week or two, it will naturally become part of your day-to-day routine.
二、把一年的希望變成每天的習慣。
許下新希望後,便要養成習慣。每天都身體力行。兩週後,便自然成為日常生活的一部分。

3. Don’t make a resolution about things you “should” do.
Forget making a resolution because it seems like the right thing to do. Your resolution should be something you are passionate about; otherwise, it’ll turn out to be 1) a flash in the pan.
三、別把「該做」的事情許成新希望。
覺得該做的事和真心想做的事是不一樣的,新希望應該是你非常熱衷的事情;否則終究是曇花一現。

4. Make sure others will hold you accountable.
Intentionally tell your coworkers, family, and friends about the promises you make to yourself. You’re more likely to stick to your b) game plan if you have to answer to other people.
四、確保親友監督你的進度。
刻意將新希望告知同事和親友,有人監督著,如此一來,半途而廢的機會較低。

5. Try to inspire others to join you.
Share your resolution with the entire company. For example, a CEO made a resolution to read one business book a month, so he started a company book club where anyone is invited to share their insights about a chosen business book.
五、邀請他人共襄盛舉。
將新希望與全公司分享。有一位CEO立志每月讀一本商業書籍,他在公司成立讀會書,任何同事都能分享讀書心得。

 

6. Attach a number.
Make your resolution concrete by making it c) quantifiable. If you made a resolution to be an influencer on social media, you could set a goal by deciding how many posts you’d make on your Facebook page per day.
六、量化新希望。
以量化的方式來許下新希望。如果你期盼在社交媒體發揮影響力,便可訂定具體數字目標,要求自己每天在臉書刊登多少貼文。

7. Keep a journal to track progress.
2) Keep your resolution on track by writing in a daily journal. The entries don’t have to be long, but they can serve as an account for what you’ve really gotten done during the year.
七、寫日記來追蹤進展。
以寫日記來維持新希望的進展。日記不用寫得很長,目的是要觀察進度。  

口語詞彙:
1 A flash in the pan  曇花一現
flash是「閃光」的意思,引申為瞬間消逝的現象。
Our manager tells us not to lose heart, as he believes that our rival’s promotion success is just a flash in the pan. 經理要我們不要氣餒,因為他相信,對手的行銷成功只是曇花一現。

2 Keep on (the) (right) track  維持正軌
track 是火車「鐵軌」,維持在軌道上,象徵任務進行順利。
The newcomer is not familiar with our procedure, so you have to watch him and keep him on the right track. 新手並不熟悉工作流程,你必須看著他,防止他犯錯。

英文句型裡有所謂「比較級」和「最高級」用法,規則十分淺顯易懂,但仍可能有弄錯的機會。以下五個例句點出了容易犯錯的部分,請考考自己吧!
  1. Delhi is India’s the second largest city. 德里是印度第二大城市。
  2. Shanghai is developing quicker than other cities. 上海發展得比其他城市快。
  3. Helen speaks French quicker of all. 海倫的法文講得比誰都快。
  4. The risky the investment is, the large it gains. 投資風險越大,獲利越大。
  5. Sherry is very more beautiful than her elder sister. 雪莉比她姐姐漂亮得多。

  1. Delhi is India’s second largest city. 當最高級前面有所有格(如本句的India’s)時,the應該予以省略。
  2. Shanghai is developing more quickly than other cities. 本句在不使用比較級時,應為…is developing quickly,使用比較級時就該在副詞quickly前面加more,亦即…is developing more quickly than…。
  3. Helen speaks French quickest of all. 從…of all可知本句不該是比較級,而是最高級,意指「在所有人之中最快」,所以quicker應改為quickest。值得注意的是,在使用副詞的最高級時,前面的the可有可無,所以quickest前面不一定要加the。
  4. The riskier the investment is, the larger it gains. 這是「the+比較級…, the+比較級」句型,所以前、後的形容詞都應改為比較級。
  5. Sherry is much more beautiful than her elder sister. 在比較級之前要表達「程度」時,必須用much或even,不可以用very。
