The busy person’s perennial question is, “Where did the day go?” It’s easy to get tossed from one thing to the next like a piece of driftwood caught in the tide of your crazy life. A thousand things compete for your time and attention and tug you here and there, but only you know how you actually want to spend your time. You can take control, mindfully structure your days, and deliberately choose the activities — and time limits — that reflect your values and goals.

大忙人永远会问:“时间都跑哪儿去了?”生命浪潮何其狂野,你会马上像个小浮萍一样随波逐流。每一件事都在伺机争夺你的时间和精力,然后把你东拉西扯,但是只有你知道,你到底想如何运用你的时间。你完全可以取得控制权,谨慎地构建你的每一天,深思熟虑地选择可以反映你价值观和目标的活动项目——及其时间限制。

You love the sense of satisfaction and accomplishment you feel when you check off an item on your to-do list as done, completed, out the door, in the can. But so many things can keep you from getting to that moment, from unexpected emergencies to long and dragged-out meetings to getting waylaid by a  conversation with a co-worker in the hallway.

当你把一个待办事项从你的to-do清单中勾掉、搞定、一脚踢飞的时候,你一定爱死那种满足感和成就感了。但是很多事情总是阻碍你到达那个时刻,从没有预见的突发事件和拖沓冗长的会议,到在走廊里被撞见的同事逮到闲扯个老半天。

There’s no better feeling than checking something off your to-do list. Done! Finished! Mission accomplished! Yet it’s so easy to let a whole day or week go by without knocking one task off your list. How does that happen?  Well, your to-do list can be a tool that guides you through your work, or it can be a big fat pillar of undone time bombs taunting you and your unproductive inadequacy. It all depends on how you write it.

没有比从to-do清单中把任务勾掉更爽的事了。搞定!收工!任务完成!但是,也可能,整整一天,甚至一个星期,都没有一个任务被勾掉。这怎么会发生呢?好吧,to-do清单既可以成为你工作的指导工具,同时也可能成为一颗臃肿的定时炸弹,不断嘲笑着你的效率低下。这完全取决于你怎么来制定你的to-do清单。

Chapter 3   Trick Yourself into Getting Done

第三章  忽悠自己把事情完成

 

Just as Mom used to grind up that bitter pill in a bowl of ice cream, you can make working on tough tasks easier to swallow. Checking an item off your to-do list — and the sense of satisfaction and completion that comes with that simple action — is one of the best things that happens during your workday. But there are roadblocks, both environmental and just plain mental, on the way to “done.”

就像妈妈经常会把很苦的药片磨碎在一大碗冰激凌里一样,你可以让很难的工作更容易被搞定。把一件要事从你的to-do清单中划掉——以及这个动作所带来的成就感和满足感——是你一天工作中最爽的事情之一。但是,总是有拦路虎,阻碍你把任务完成,他们可能来自外部环境,也可能仅仅来自精神上。
