  托福备考过程中,杰出的时刻管理能够让我们的学习愈加高效。那么通过对下面这篇文章的阅览,让我们了解时刻管理的重要性。我们在阅览过程中能够积累词汇和一些句型,而且准备起来敞开你的时刻管理模式,让我们的学习更有功率。

  The idea of time management can call forth images of restriction and control. You mightvisualize a prunefaced Scrooge hunched over your shoulder, stopwatch in hand, telling you what to do every minute. In truth, however, time management is a blessing.

  时刻管理这个概念会使人发生各种关于束缚和操控的联想。你或许会想象一个老得满脸皱纹的斯克鲁奇俯身在你的肩上,手里拿着秒表,告诉你每分钟该做什么。事实上,时刻管理是一件幸事。

  Time is an unusual commodity. It cannot be saved.You can’t stockpile time like wood for your stove or food for the winter.

  时刻是一种共同的产品。它无法被保存,你无法像给炉子储木柴、为冬天存粮食那样储存时刻。

  Time is a commodity that can’t be seen, felt, touched, tasted, or smelled. You can’t sense it directly.Even brilliant scientists and philosophers aren’t sure how to describe it.

  时刻是一种看不见、摸不着、触不到、尝不了、闻不出的产品。你无法直接感觉到它。就连才华横溢的科学家和哲学家也不知道怎么描绘它。

  Because time is so elusive, it is an easy commodity to ignore. That doesn’t bother time at all. Time is perfectly content to remain hidden until you are nearly out of it. And when you are out of it, you are out of it.

  正因为时刻难以捉摸,所以它是一种很简单被人们疏忽的产品。这对时刻一点点没有影响,时刻会一向称心如意地躲在背面,直到你差不多把时刻用光。而一旦你把时刻用光,你就真的用光了。

  Time is a resource that you cannot renew. If you are out of wood, you can chop some more. If you’re out of money, you can earn a little extra. If you’re out of love, there is still hope. If you’re out of health, sometimes it can be restored.But when you’re out of time, that’s it. When this minute is gone, it’s gone.

  时刻是一种你无法弥补的资源。假如木柴没有了,你能够再砍一些来;假如钱用完了,你能够再赚一点;假如爱没有了,期望还是存在的;假如身体垮了,有时还能够恢复;但假如时刻没有了,那就真的没有了。你失掉一分钟,它就永久离去了。

  Time is an equal opportunity resource. All people, regardless of race, creed, color, or national origin have exactly the same number of hours in a week. No matter how important you are, no matter how rich or poor, you get 168 hours to spend each week (no more, no less).

  时刻是一种机会平等的资源。所有人,不管种族、崇奉、肤色或许国籍,一周拥有的时刻完全是相同的。不管你多么重要,不管你多么富有或许赤贫,你每周可花的时刻都是 168 小时(不多也不少)。

  Time is an unpredictable commodity. There will come a week when you’ll have fewer than 168 hours to spend, and you don’t know which week that will be.

  时刻是一种无法猜测的产品。说不定哪个星期你能花的时刻就缺乏 168 小时了,而该星期会出现在什么时分你却不得而知。

  Time seems to be used up at varying speeds. Sometimes it’s slow and sometimes faster than a speeding bullet. On Friday afternoons, classroom clocks can creep. After a hard day at work, the last few pages of an economics assignment can turn minutes into hours. A year in school canstretch out to an eternity. At the other end of the time spectrum, time flies. These are magic times when we are so absorbed by what we’re doing that hours disappear in minutes.

  时刻似乎会以不同的速度用完,有时分它会很慢,有时分却比子弹还快。在星期五下午,教室里的钟可能会走得很慢。辛苦一天之后,经济学作业的最终几页能把几分钟变成几个小时。一年的上学时刻可能会长得永无止境。从时刻规模的另一头来看,时刻又过得飞快。只需干事很专注,几个小时就跟几分钟相同一下就消失了,这种时分真是神奇。

  You can manage this commodity so you won’t waste it or feel regretful about it.

  你能够管理这种产品,这样你就不会形成浪费,也不会感到懊悔。

  Approach time as if you are in control—even though it often seems you are not. Sure, sometimes it seems that a spouse controls your time; your boss controls your time; your teachers or your parents or your kids or somebody else controls your time. Maybe that is true. But maybe it isn’t. When you say you don’t have enough time, you may really be saying that you are not spending the time you do have in the way that you want.

  对待时刻时要显得你是操纵——虽然你常常看上去没有操控权。的确,有时分似乎是你的爱人操控着你的时刻,你的老板操控着你的时刻,你的教师或许你的爸爸妈妈或许你的孩子或许其他什么人操控着你的时刻,这或许是真的,但或许不是真的。当你说你的时刻不行时,你可能真实想说的是,你没有把你真实拥有的时刻花在你想花的当地。
