主题: 白领必知:时间管理的五个高效方法
Time management is essential in our high-speed, always-on culture, yet most advice you'll find on this topic is pretty vague. "Setting goals" and "making time work for you" are, um, great, but so are practical efficiencies. Because oDesk is home to thousands of self-starting contract workers, we've seen many efficiency tr icks。 时间管理在如今这个高效地,不断发展地文化氛围中是非常重要的。但是迄今为止关 于时间管理的建议仍是很模糊的。“设定目标”以及“让时间为你工作”确实都很重要,但是 实际效率也是非常重要的。很多成功自主创业人士为我们提供了不少行之有效的方法。 The headline promises five steps for time management, but they all come fro m a single principle: You can only do one thing at a time, so do it right。 虽然标题说的是时间管理的五个步骤,但总的说来只有一个规则,那就是:一次只做 一件事情并且做好它。 Finish what you've started. This is the core idea: Where possible, working a single task to completion is more efficient. When you sit down to work, you spen d a few minutes just getting "settled in" before you're productive. If you jump fro m task to half-finished task all the time, that's a lot of minutes lost to "rolling up your sleeves." 完成你开始了的事情。这一点至关重要:尽可能的完成一件任务更有效率。实际上, 当你坐下来开始工作时,你需要几分钟来进入工作状态。如果你总是工作到一半又去做另 外一件事情,那你会浪费很多作无用功的时间。 Think small. You can't always spend several hours working straight through o n a single big job. Don't think in those terms. Use a simple to-do list, and take e ach item to completion without interruption, unless something's literally on fire. An example for the job-seeker: It's not "I'll look for jobs this afternoon," it's checking email for replies to previous applications, scanning preferred job sites, writing co ver letters, and tweaking your resume for each solid lead, etc。 从小处着想。不要总是认为应该花几个小时去解决一个大而艰巨的任务中。列一份工 作清单,然后按照清单来一项项的完成工作。除非有十万火急的事情,否则执行时就不要 间断。就拿求职者来说,不是说你今天下午要找很多份工作,而是应该检查以前投递的简 历是否有了回复,浏览一些适合的工作网站,写几分求职信,并认真修改你的简历,使之 切实可行。 Quit stalling. Once you're organizing by simple components, it's easier to dive right into the small tasks. It takes a lot of warm up and deep breaths before yo u jump off a high-dive and we're less hesitant about walking down a flight of ste ps。 拒绝拖延。一旦将你的工作分割成几个小的部分,就更加容易完成任务。总所周知, 在高潜水时需要做大量的热身工作,但进入高潜水之后,我们就不会再介意深入一点了。 Play well with others. When you're working as part of a team, make sure yo u're prioritizing what you do to get the most important parts into the production li ne. Nothing's worse than having people stand around waiting for you to produce. In a job search, prioritize anyone who's waiting to hear from you; hiring manage rs looking for self-starters (and who isn't?) will appreciate and remember your pro
mptness。 与他人良好的合作。如果你在一个团队中的工作是做好一些重要的零件,那么你应该 优先做好你的工作,以确保生产线能正常运转。没有比要其他人等着你的工作完成才能进 入下个工序更糟糕的事情了。在找工作时,优先回答那些等待你答复的人;聘用经理时寻 找那些能主动做事的人(谁不是呢?),这样大家一定会明白并记住你的高效率。 Analyze your output. How could you have been more efficient? How much of your time goes to trivial, mundane work rather than the challenging stuff you enj oy and that your boss values? Job-seekers, log the time you spend at various jo b sites, and count how many real leads that effort yields. This way you can repri oritize your efforts for high value results. Why are you still lurking on that job bo ard that dried up two years ago? 分析你的产出。怎么样才可以更有效的工作?你有多少时间是浪费在世俗的琐事上, 而不是用来完成你所热爱的挑战或者你上司所赏识的工作上呢?求职者们, 记录下你们在 不同招工场所所花的时间,并计算下真正达到效果的时间是多少吧。如此一来,你便能重 新努力去追求高价值的事情。如果一个就业局两年前就倒闭了,为什么你还在那里徘徊不 前呢? It's a multitasking world, and there's no changing it. But when a dozen things are clamoring for your attention, you can still organize them on your terms。 这是一个多任务化的世界,这点是不会改变的。但是即使有很多事情摆在你面前,我 们仍可以按我们的方式有效的处理好它们。
主题: 调查表明:医生是最理想的结婚对象
It really does pay to be a doctor, with an international survey showing the medic al profession is the most trusted, among the most admired and includes the most eligible marriage partners. 医生真“吃香”。一项全球调查显示,医生不仅是最受信赖和尊敬的职业,而且还是人们最 理想的结婚对象。 By contrast, actors and musicians, along with journalists and advertisers, were a mong professionals that people trusted the least, and were also least likely to ch oose a partner from, according to a survey by Synovate, the market research ar m of Aegis Group plc. 与之相反,由安吉斯集团旗下的思纬市场调查公司开展的这项调查显示,演员、音乐家、 记者以及广告从业人员的信任度最低, 而且人们也最不愿意选择这些行业的人作为结婚对 象。 "Much of who we are is tied up in what we do in the hours from nine to five, a nd often way beyond," a Synovate statement said. 思纬公司声称:“人们常把我们与我们朝九晚五从事的职业联系在一起,而且联系得非常 紧密。” "Asking someone what they do for a living is often the first question you ask the m; right after 'what's your name?'." “除了名字,别人的职业是我们最常问的一个问题。”
The survey polled about 5,500 respondents in Brazil, Canada, China, France, Mal aysia, South Africa and the United States. 该调查共有来自巴西、加拿大、中国、法国、马来西亚、南非和美国的约 5500 人参加。 It asked people what makes for an admirable job, which professions they trust or do not, who is overpaid, and which profession they would prefer to marry. 调查问题包括:你认为什么样的职业最受人尊敬、你最信任或不信任的职业、你认为哪些 职业薪水过高以及你倾向于选择哪些行业的人为配偶等。 Sixteen percent nominated doctors, nurses and other healthcare professionals as their preferred marriage partners, higher than any other profession. 16%的受访者选择医生、护士及其它从医人员作为最理想的结婚对象,这一比例居各行业 之首。 Other eligible--and admired--professions were education, at 14 percent, and scienc e and technology, at 10 percent. 此外,教育(14%)和科技(10%)也是受尊敬并符合择偶要求的职业。 Educators and doctors were also voted the most trusted by an overwhelming 86 and 87 percent, followed by homemakers and those in science and technology. 分别有多达 86%和 87%的受访者认为教育从业者和医生也是最受信赖的人,家庭主妇和 科技工作者位列其后。 Only one percent picked retail professionals as partner-material, and those in me dia and marketing, as well as entertainers, did little better at two and three perce nt. 仅有 1%的受访者选择零售业人员为理想的结婚对象,媒体、营销和娱乐界人士的情况也 好不到哪去,得票率仅为 2%和 3%。 These professions were also among the least trusted by respondents, who, acros s the seven markets, picked the media as the single least trusted group. 这几个职业同时也最不受人们的信赖。在所列的七大行业中,媒体从业人员信任度最低。
Entertainers, along with corporate executives and lawyers, were voted as being th e most overpaid, while homemakers and educators were among those seen as b eing underpaid. 娱乐界人士、公司高管和律师被认为收入过高,而家庭主妇和教育从业者则被认为薪水过 低。
主题: 揭秘:夫妻越长越像因素
别再寻找和你互补的爱人了,我们需要和自己相似的爱人,因为相似的相貌意味着我 们有相似的个性。 Forget about opposites attracting. We like people who look like us, b ecause they tend to have personalities similar to our own。 新的研究显示,和某人在一起时间越长,我们和他的长相就越相似。 And, a new study suggests, the longer we are with someone, the mo re similarities in appearance grow。 研究人员选取 160 对夫妻的单人照片,分别给 11 名的男性和 11 名女性看,让他们 判断这些夫妻的年龄、魅力点和性格特征。但是在此之前,他们并不知道谁和谁是一对。 Researcher sat Wake Forest University School of Medicine in WinstonSalem, North Carolina, found that workers who enjoyed more work flexibi lity were also less likely to say health problems affected their performanc e at work。 22 名参与者把他们认为相貌和性格相似的人摆在一起,而他们也恰恰就是真正的夫 妻。而且,在一起生活时间越长的夫妻,相似性就越明显。 The test participants rated men and woman who were actual couples as looking alike and having similar personalities. Also,the longer the cou ples had been together, the greater the perceived similarities。 研究人员认为共同的经历造成了他们的相似性。 The researchers speculate that the sharing of experiences might affec t how couples look。 英国利物浦研究人员托尼?利特尔说:相貌和性格之间有关系这一想法听起来有点怪 异,但却是有生物学依据的。 The idea that there is a connection between appearance and personal ity might seem odd at first, but there could be biological reasons for alin k, said study member Tony Little from the University of Liverpool in Engl and。 他说:“睾丸激素直接影响男性化的脸型形成,也影响人的行为。脸可以反映我们的 情绪,长时间重复一个表情也会改变我们的脸。”

"Testosteroneis linked to masculine face shapes and it also affects be havior,"Little said. "Also, the face displays our emotions and over time e motional expressions may become written in the face." 例如,一个人总是笑就会产生笑纹,别人就能看出这个人生活挺幸福的。 For example, someone who smiles a lot may develop lines and muscl es that are suggestive of someone who is happy。 此项研究显示,人们利用面部特征来判断某人的特点,对于每张脸,人们判断的依据 也有所不同。但是眼睛和微笑绝对是判断的最重要依据。 The new study, to be detailed in the March issue of the journal Perso nality and Individual Differences, indicates that people home in on a vari ety of different features when using facial appearance to make decisions about someone's personality, and that the particular cues focused on cha nge from face to face. Vital to the decision, however, are eyes and smile s。 利特尔说:“笑容是社交中十分重要的友好表示,眼睛也是精力是否集中的最有力证 明。” "Smiles are important social cues that may tell us whether or not so meone is friendly and eyes are also a traditional focus of attention," Littl e said。 利特尔说:整个面部也很重要。例如,由宽下巴和上扬的眉峰等组成的男性化面部特 征会让人觉得不友好、不愿意合作。 Over allface shape can be important too. For example, the combinati on of masculine features, large chins, and dominant brow ridges can crea te an impression of disagreeableness and being unwilling to cooperate, Li ttle said。
