  Have you ever been so overwhelmed with things to do that you wished you could simply stop the clock and make time stand still while you got everything done?

  你有没有被各种事情缠得焦头烂额过,巴不得时间停下来,好让你把一切搞定?

  It would be wonderful if we could all do that, wouldn’t it? Sadly, those of us not living in some fantastic science-fiction show aren’t blessed with the ability to halt the hands of time, leaving us looking for more practical ways to get things done in any given day.

  要是能把事情全部完成,应该挺爽的吧?可惜,我们并非生活在奇妙的科幻节目中,也没有能力让时间静止不动。所以,我们只能另外想出更实际的方法来把事情做完了。

  1. Wake up earlier

  早起

  It may sound obvious, but if we’re really going to start getting more things done in a day, then where better to start than right at the beginning of that day.

  听上去或许老生常谈,但如果我们真想在一天时间内完成更多事情的话,还有什么办法能比早起更好呢?

  Getting out of bed earlier gives us more time to do more stuff, and hopefully still have time left over for the things that matter, like family and friends.

  早点起床能让我们有更多时间做事,而且说不定还会多出时间让我们和亲友相处呢。

  2. Stay healthy

  保持健康

  Dragging ourselves out of bed a little earlier doesn’t mean we have to spend the rest of our day fighting off fatigue. By eating healthily, enjoying exercise and generally taking care of ourselves, we’ll find ourselves with more energy to tackle the things we need to do.

  早点起床并不表示接下来这一天我们只得与困倦作战。只要吃得健康、享受运动并照顾好自己,我们会发现自己可以更加精力充沛地处理好该做的事情。

  Instead of dropping off into a post-lunch slump in which productivity is at an all-time low, or being too exhausted after a day at the office to spend time on our passion projects, we’ll be alert and awake and ready to get things done.

  这样我们就不会出现饭后犯困、效率持续低下现象,也不会因为上班时紧张忙活了一天的项目而感到精疲力竭;相反,我们会感到灵敏清醒,会劲头十足地完成任务。

  3. Organize and prioritize

  有条不紊

  Getting things done isn’t about doing a bunch of stuff for the sake of keeping busy, it’s about doing what matters to help us achieve our goals.

  把事情做完并不表示为了忙碌而忙碌,而是要求我们完成有利于实现目标的重要任务。

  In order to have a successful day, it pays toprioritize. Take care of the biggest, most crucial things first, and then work your way up.

  若想充实过好一天,就得学会优化任务。先处理最重要的事情,然后以此类推。

  Think of it like Maslow’s Hierarchy of Needs: when we’ve dealt with the most mission-critical things, we’re better equipped to move on to the next set of tasks, and upwards we go, building on our own productivity and finding it even easier to get things done.

  这就好比马斯洛需求层次理论:当我们搞定最重要的事情之后,才会更好地接手后面的任务,进而渐渐提高自身效率,最后发现可以更轻松地处理好所有事情。
