  How manyawesomeMondays have you had in your life? If you are like me, not many I reckon. Mondays can be grim. You are feeling very fragile, nervous, perhaps a little depressed at the mountain of work facing you, and you are having fits of nostalgia about the great weekend. But what if you could organize Fridays a bit better to make the entry into the Monday atmosphere less traumatic? Read on, because you could soon be making your Mondays awesome.

  你这辈子遇到过多少美妙的周一?如果你跟我一样,估计不多吧。周一可能很讨厌。你觉得脆弱紧张,一想到堆积如山的工作,或许还有点情绪低落,忍不住怀念美好周末。但是,如果你能更好地规划周五,进而更平和地过渡到周一呢?继续往下读吧,很快你就能拥有美妙的周一了。

  1. Get one major task finished

  搞定一项主要任务。

  This is the task that you have said that you will do by Friday. TGIF (Thank God it’s Friday) is now here and you just have to get it done. Here are some tips to make sure this happens this Friday and not Monday or Tuesday … or even next Friday!

  有些任务你说要等到周五再做。谢天谢地,现在就是周五啦,赶紧去搞定吧。下面这些建议可以保证你在本周五就完成任务,而不用拖到下周一周二……甚至下周五!

  Alert colleagues that you will be unavailable for a few hours.

  告诉同事你这几个小时会很忙。

  Set yourself a time limit – use one of the new task management apps if that helps you. Use the ‘Pomodoro’ time alarm if it suits you. This allows you to work in 25-minute blocks with a 5-minute break after the first slot. Breaks become longer as you progress through the day. It’s up to you.

  设定一个时间期限——如果可行,可以选用一款任务管理软件。要是番茄钟定时器比较管用,也可以尝试一下。这样你可以先工作25分钟,再休息5分钟。随着全天工作的延续,休息时间也相应延长。时间随你设定。

  2. Find a quiet place to work

  找个安静地方工作。

  There may be areas where you can shut yourself away to finish the above task. This is essential as you can avoid the ‘drive-bys’ and all the other interruptions that inevitably mess up your concentration. Not only is valuable time lost but stress levels are increased.

  或许你能找到可以关上门单独完成任务的地方。这很有必要,因为能保证你免受汽车喇叭及其他干扰,以免注意力受到影响。干扰不仅浪费宝贵时间,还导致压力的增加。

  3. Now plan the week ahead

  提前制定一周计划。

  Make a to do list now, rather than on Monday morning when you may be overwhelmed with the mayhem. When planning the week ahead, keep in mind that Mondays and Tuesdays are the most productive days at work, so plan the most difficult tasks for then.

  现在就制定任务清单,而不要等到周一早上,因为到时候你可能会混乱无措。在提前制定一周计划时,别忘了周一和周二是工作效率最高的两天,所以请把最困难的任务安排在这两天。

  With the to do list made, you can easily cut it by 50% so that you are left with the top priorities for the coming week. Employees frequentlymisjudgetiming and also tend to put minor jobs on the list.

  任务清单列好后,你可以轻松剔除一半,只留下下周最紧要的任务。员工通常会对时间作出错误判断,而且还会把琐事列到清单上。
