17 1 The best kept secret about time management is that there really is no such thing as good time management. We only get so many hours in the day and there is no way we can change it no matter how hard we try. 2 The fact is that the real secret of time management is learning to ourselves and our own personal energy. The Secret of Time Management Tran manage ① vt. to control a business or department and the people, equipment, and money involved in it ▲ Has she had any experience of managing large projects? ▲ The company had been very badly managed. ② v. (~ to do sth) to succeed in doing sth difficult, especially after trying very hard ▲ I can’t manage all this work on my own. ▲ I only just managed to finish the task on time. 时间管理的秘诀 时间管理的最大秘密就是根本不存在管理好时间这样的事情。我 们每天所拥有的时间都是固定的, 这是无论我们怎样努力都不可能改变 的。 事实上, 时间管理的真正秘诀在于, 学习如何管理我们自己以及我 们的个人精力。 manage Text A Unit4

18 We need to how we look at the time we have and how we choose to use it. 3If you find that you are struggling to fit all the things you would like to do into your, then it is probably time for a change. The first thing you need to do is to spend some time to decide what your are. Think about how you really want to spend your time and the things that you enjoy and are important to you. The Secret of Time Management Tran how... and how... 是并列的宾语从句, 其中 we have 是定语从句, 修饰 time 。 * adjust 我们需要调整对自己所拥有的时间的看法以及使用时间的方法。 当你感到你为了把所有想做的事情都安排进你的日程而精疲力尽 时, 也许就是你应该改变的时候了。首先, 你应该花些时间来确定哪些事 情应该摆在首位。想想你究竟希望怎样使用你的时间, 找出你喜欢的, 对 你来说很重要的事情。 adjust ① vt. to change something slightly, especially to make it more correct, effective,or suitable ▲ If your employment status changes, your tax code will be adjusted accordingly. ② v. to gradually become familiar with a new situation  = adapt  ▲ It took time to adjust myself to the lifestyle of America. Text A Unit4 schedule ① n. a plan of what someone is going to do and when they are going to do it on schedule at the planned time ahead of/behind schedule before or after the planned time ② arrange that an event or activity will happen at a particular time priorities identify * Priority n. something that is very important and must be dealt with before other things ▲ The management should consider office safety to be a priority. top/high/low priority important/unimportant thing have/take/get priority priority over ▲ This project has priority over all others.

Think about... and identify... 是并列的祈使句 ;how 引导宾语从句 ;that you enjoy and... 是定语从句, 修饰 things, 从句中 you 是主语,enjoy 和 are 是并列的谓语。

19 These are the things you need to concentrate on and schedule time for. 4 The basic part for daily planning is taking some time to plan for each and every day. This may seem like a chore; however, you need only take five or ten minutes to do it. When you do it is up to you. The Secret of Time Management Tran 这些就是需要你投入精力, 并排入日程表的事情。 高效的每日计划的基本内容, 就是要花些时间为每一天都做好计划。 也许这看起来很麻烦, 但你只需要五到十分钟就可以完成它。你可以自 己决定什么时间做计划。 taking some time... 是现在分词短语, 做表语 * Text A Unit4 effective effective a. ① successful or achieving the results that you want ▲ The ads were simple, but remarkably effective. ② if a law, agreement, or system becomes effective, it officially starts ▲ This agreement will become effective from January 17. Antonym: ineffective

20 fresh a. ① not usually before noun, full of energy because you are not tired ▲ She always seems fresh and lively, even at the end of the day. ② new, different or another ▲ I’ll just make some fresh coffee. ▲ fresh fruit/vegetables/fish/bread, etc ③ recently made, done, arrived, etc. pressure n. a way of working or living that causes you a lot of anxiety, especially because you feel you have too many things to do ▲ I’m under constant pressure at work. Note: stress 和 pressure 都指压迫人的力量。 stress 指使人感到内心痛苦 的各种原因,pressure 则指强制或促使某种行动的外部压力。因此 stress 通常为不好的东西, 而适当增加 pressure 有时却是件好事。 You can do it at night before you go to bed, or the in the morning. Morning is a good time to do this your mind is after a good night’s sleep. 5 It is important to make a commitment to scheduling your day before it starts. Those five to ten minutes will make you clear about your actions for the day you are more to be highly, and feel less and. The Secret of Time Management Tran 你可以在晚上临睡前,或清晨起床后做计划。清晨是做计划的最好时 间,因为经过一夜的睡眠之后,你的头脑很清醒。 确保在每天开始的时候就做好计划是很重要的。每天五到十分钟 的时间就可以让你清楚一天要做什么,这样你就可以达到更高的效率, 压力也会随之减小。 fresh first thing as soon as you get up in the morning, or as soon as you start work ▲ I’ll phone him first thing Monday. first thing Text A Unit4 as * * solikely productivestress pressure as conj. because ▲ As it was getting late,I decided to book into a hotel. so you are more likely... 是结果状语从句。 so conj. therefore ▲ There was no food in the house so we rang out for a pizza. likely a. something that will probably happen or is expected likely outcome/effects/consequences, etc ▲ What’s the likely outcome of this whole business? likely to do/be something ▲ We are not likely to veto our own proposals, are we? antonym: unlikely productive a. producing or achieving a lot ▲ Most of us are more productive in the morning. ▲ We had a very productive meeting — I felt we sorted out a lot of problems. antonym: unproductive stress n. continuous feelings of worry about your work or personal life, that prevent you from relaxing ▲ People under a lot of stress may experience headaches, minor pains and sleeping difficulties. as your mind is fresh... 是原因状语从句。

21 时间管理的另一个必要因素是有效利用时间的能力。这并不意味 着你要做很多事情, 而是要做正确的事情 —— 那些能让你效率更高的、 赚更多钱的, 以及让你更接近目标的事情。 essential a. extremely important and necessary ▲ Government support will be essential if the project is to succeed. essential for/to ▲ It is essential to book in advance. it is essential (that) ▲ It is essential (that) our prices remain competitive. 6 Another part of time management is the ability to be effective with your time. It is not about getting a lot done, but it is about getting the right things done — the things that make you more productive, make you more money, or get you closer to your goals. The Secret of Time Management Tran Text A Unit4 * essential to be effective with your time 是动词不定式, 做后置定语。

22 例如, 如果你有一家公司, 每天要发送一百封信, 有效利用时间的方 式是, 找一台机器来打印、折叠信件并贴上邮票 ; 或找个秘书来处理。低 效利用时间的方式是你自己每天花两个小时来做这件事。 这就是时间管理的秘诀 : 只把时间用在那些对你来说很重要的事情 上, 并确保要有效利用时间。 matter vi.  [not in progressive], to be important, or to have an effect on what happens ▲ In the marketplace,the design of product package really matters. it doesn’t etc matter ▲ It doesn’t matter who wins. Just try your best. 7 For example, if you own a business that sends out a hundred letters a day, effective use of your time is going out and finding a machine to print, fold and stamp letters; or getting a secretary to do it. Ineffective use of your time is spending two hours a day doing it yourself. 8 So, that’s the secret of time management. Only spend time on the things that to you, and you use that time effectively.
