 我们很多人都希望早上再赖会儿床,但是早起可以让一天的生活更早步入正轨。下面的一些小建议,能让你在生活、工作上都更充分的享受早晨时光。

  Prepare For the Morning the Night Before
  前晚规划好早上要做的事
  Pretend you are in middle school: Pack your lunch, set out your clothes, organize your to-do list and email, put the keys, bus pass, and your purse in one place. When the alarm sounds you will be more likely to pop out of bed, shower, get dressed, and jump on the productivity train stress free.
  像在学生时代一样准备好要做的事:包好午饭,选好衣服,列好即将要做的事和要看的邮件,把钥匙、交通卡和钱包放在同一个地方。如果这些都提前做好,当早晨闹钟响起,你更有可能马上起床、冲澡、穿衣,富有效率也不用急吼吼的赶时间。
  Remember the Adages
  记住谚语
  The early bird does catch the worm. Try starting your day extra early —like 5 a.m. It can be a tremendousproductivity booster and get you in good with the boss.
  “早期的鸟儿有虫吃。”如果很早开始新的一天——比方说5点,能让你做更多的工作而且老板会更欣赏你的工作态度。
  Take an AM Break
  早上挤个时间休息一会
  If you get anxious in the morning at the office take a break with a co-worker or friend. Grabcoffee. Most importantly: Gababout your stress and brainstormefficient fixes you can implementimmediately.
  如果早上在办公室忙得焦头烂额,不如和同事或朋友一起休息一下。可以喝杯咖啡。但更重要的是:说说让你压力山大的事,想想有没有能马上解压的办法。
  Plan a Weekday AM Coffee Date With a Friend
  和朋友相约早上喝咖啡
  Instead of filling your post work schedule with dinner dates, plan an early am coffee date with a friend. You will start the day sooner and waltzinto the office caffeinated and cheeryafter a cheap friend date. You also won't be stressed all day thinking about how you are going to be late for dinner and can focus on work.
  可以把下班后应酬的时间换到早上,和朋友约好在早上喝咖啡相聚的时间。这样你可以更早开始一天的行程,而且在和朋友聚过以后,你也会以更好的心情开始工作。你不用整天担心晚上赴宴迟到,也能更集中精力工作。


 毫无疑问,你身边有魅力的人都基本上都属于最成功的人士。英国赫特福德郡大学怀斯曼教授证实,魅力一半源于天生,一半来自后天。他们列举了提升魅力值的行为,通过练习,使这些行为融入到性格里,来提升与周围人交际的能力,从而提高你整体的魅力值。下面是提升魅力的七个好习惯。

  1. Listen Actively
  做一个积极的听众
  When you listen, give them your undivided attention and ask questions. Do NOT check your phone more than once in a conversation – better yet, don’t check it at all! A study by the University of Colorado found that active listening helps avoid misunderstandings and opens people up to get them to say more. Actively listening will improve communication with those around you, whether you’re working with them or living with them. People tend to remember good listeners as positive people.
  当你是个听众时,一定要全神贯注,别忘了问点问题。不要在谈话过程中超过一次查看手机——最好的是,压根就不要看手机!科罗拉多大学的研究表明,做一名积极的听众可以避免误会,同时使说话人说得更多,增强你与周围人的联系,不管是同事或是室友。人们总是能会把好的听众看成积极正面的人。
  2. Speak Clearly
  语言表达清晰
  Take your time and think about each sentence. The more you speak with unnecessary filler, the less clear you are. Especially when speaking to more than one person at once, or to a new group of people, practice your approach beforehand. Am I saying everything I need to say? Is everything I’m saying necessary? Is there a clear objective and purpose to what I am saying?
  花点时间想想你要说的每句话。你说的废话越多,语言表达就越不清晰。尤其是在和不止一个人或一群人对话时,一定要先练习一下你的说话技巧。我说的都面面俱到了吗?我说的都是有必要说的嘛?我说的这些话里有明确的主题思想吗?
  3. Smile from Within
  发自内心的微笑
  A genuine smile from within shows on the outside: you smile with your eyes and mouth. Not to say you have to walk around with a grin all the time! But when you smile on the inside, people are more receptive when you approach them. The women with a Duchenne smile were more likely to be married and stay married than those who had a fake smile, and were more likely to experience greater sense of personal well-being. When you smile from the heart and follow up with a kind personality, you will get more and give more to the world than you ever thought possible.
  真正的微笑是从内到外散发出来的:你的眼睛和嘴都在笑。这不是说你要一直咧着嘴笑!而是当你微笑的时候,要发自内心,这样人们才更能接受你。相对于比起经常假笑的人,有着杜乡式真正微笑的女人更容易嫁出去,婚姻也可以保持更久,还更能体验到一种独属于自己的幸福。当你发自内心的微笑,你会向外界给予更多,同时也得到更多,这会完全超乎你的想象哦。
    4. Stand Up Tall
  站直点
  Imagine there’s a string running from your navel, through your head and up into the ceiling. It’s an old dancer’s trick, and works for the rest of us to maintain great posture throughout the day. Good posture makes you appear secure and confident; if you’re not feeling that confident today, fake it until you make it! Remember to keep your shoulders down.
  想象一下,从你的头沿着背部到天花板,一直有根棍子在支撑着。这是舞者训练的老方法,也可以帮助我们来纠正自己的站姿。好的站姿让你更加自信,如果今天感觉底气不足,那么就站直了直到你成功!当然千万不要耸肩哦。
  5. Spread Praise &Phrase
  不吝惜赞美
  Ever hear “it’s not what you say, but how you say it?” If you have to critique someone, before you do, think of how you would want to be critiqued. Be direct and address the problem at hand, propose a solution, get feedback and establish a timeframe. At the same time, give credit &compliments where they are due. Building confidence in yourself is important, but being able to build confidence in others – that’s charisma.
  听没听过“你说什么不重要,重要的是你用什么方式说”这句话?所以当你批评什么人之前,想象你自己是否能接受这样的批评。你应该事先直接指出问题,提出解决方案,给予一定的回馈然后确定一个时间表。同时要不断给予他们信心和赞美。自信很重要,但是给予别人信心——这就是魅力所在了。 
  6. Remember Names
  记住别人的名字
  A legendarilysuccessful writer known as “Mr. Charisma” himself, once said that “a person’s name is to him or her the sweetest and most important sound in any language.” It’s simple but effective. When you first learn someone’s name, repeat it back to them by saying “Hi Amanda” or “It’s a pleasure to meet you Amanda.” Also use their name when you end the conversation, it’ll help immensely. You can also visualizethe person’s name on their forehead, or associate that person’s name with a facial feature, like “Joe’s Eyebrows.” If all else fails, after meeting someone new, type their name into your phone with a short descriptiveword.
  被称为“魅力先生”的传奇成功作家戴尔卡耐基曾说过:“无论在什么语言中,对于一个人来说,他的名字永远是最好听和最重要的。” 这个道理很简单,但也很有用。当你第一次知道别人的名字,就立即重复他们的名字给予反馈,比如说“你好,阿曼达”,或者“认识你真高兴,阿曼达。” 同时,在结束对话时也要提及对方的名字,这会帮大忙。你也可以用名字形容他们的长相或者他们的面部表情。比如 “乔的眉毛”。如果这都不管用,在认识新朋友之后,把他们的名字简写存进你的手机里。
  7. Eye Contact
  眼神交流
  Make eye contact while a person is talking to you, and while you are speaking to them. Eye contact is one of the most important aspects of communication – it allows you to really see if your message is getting through. It keeps the other person focused on you, and keeps you focused on their words and meaning. If you’re making a presentation or speech, make eye contact once with as many people in the room as possible. It will make the whole event feel much more personal to your audience.
  和别人和交流的时候别忘了眼神交流。眼神交流是交际里的重要部分——可以让你明确信息是否已经被传递。也让其他人把焦点集中在你身上,还可以让你去集中精力理解他们的话语和含义。如果你在准备一个演讲或讲演,尽量和室内的人进行眼神交流。这会让你的听众与你的距离拉近。


 每一间办公室,每一栋大楼,你所到之处都会发现有人难以融入他们所处的环境。他们要么惹人讨厌、粗鲁无礼,要么不为他人着想,或者笨手笨脚。他们也许在自己的专业方面很优秀,但在社会人际交往方面就完全不行。他们在社交方面一塌糊涂,人们都尽可能避免和这类人打交道。情商、社会礼仪、亲切感正是这类人所缺乏的。这些要素被称为“软技能”,我们都需要它们,否则我们就可能被社会排挤,或者变成人人避而远之的“怪人”。

  To better improve your “soft skills”, here are 20 tips you can follow:
  想要加强你的软技能,可以试试下面这20条小贴士:
  1. How to remember people’s names, faces, or places. If you can remember at least one of these, you’re heading in the right direction.
  知道如何记住他人的姓名、长相和工作地点。如果你能至少记住其中一项,你已经找对方向了。
  2. Opening successive doors for people. (It takes finesseif you’re doing it for multiple and consecutive sets of doors —and you have multiple people.)
  帮他人打开几扇连续的门。(如果是很多扇连在一起的门,而且同时有多个人通过,是需要策略的。)
  3. Keeping in contact with your relationships. A great way to hone your soft skills and maintain relationships.
  和你的人际圈里保持联系。这是提升软技能并保持人际关系的好办法。
  4. Learn to be a better listener. Don’t interrupt people, don’t try to control the conversation, and show genuine interest in what people are saying.
  学会做一名更好的倾听者。不要打断他人的说话,不要试图掌控一场谈话,要对他人所讲的事情表现出真诚的兴趣。
  5. Offer people something to drink and eat when they enter your home.
  当有人来你家做客时,准备食物饮料招待他们。
  6. Learn how to make fast healthy snacks for your visitors.
  学习为你的访客快速制作健康的小点心。
  7. The Elevator Rule. Let others out first. This also applies to “non-elevator” situations as well, such as on buses, boats, and trains.
  电梯法则——让他人先出去。这在“非电梯”情况下也同样适用,比如在汽车、船只或者火车上。
  8. Practice writing emails to be short, respectful, and to the point. No one wants to read an essay in email format.
  练习写作电子邮件,做到简单明了且有礼貌。没有人想读一封像散文一样的电子邮件。
  9. Being discreet when giving tips to relevant service professionals. No one should see the money. This takes some finesse.
  在给相关服务人士小费时要注意,不要让其他人看到你给了多少钱。这需要一些技巧。
  10. Cell phone manners. No one wants to hear your conversation in public transport. It’s supposed to be a private conversation, not a public broadcast.
  手机礼仪。没有人想在乘坐公共交通工具时听到你的谈话。这应该是私人谈话,而不是公共广播。
    11. Handwriting letters to people adds a personal touch. You can meet almost anyone with enough persistent handwritten letters.
  手写的信件会增加一份亲切感。手写信件累积到足够多时,你就好像见到了这个人一样。
  12. Take interest in the passions of others. This might mean feigning interest initially, but it’s likely that feignedinterest will eventually transform itself into a genuine feeling.
  对他人所热衷的食物抱有兴趣。最初也许意味着你要假装感兴趣,但很有可能这种假装的兴趣最终会演变为真正的兴趣。
  13. Taking pride in your appearance helps to make you feel good —and improves how people perceive you.
  对自己的外表有自信会让你有好心情——也有助于他人对你产生好的印象。
  14. If someone walks into a conversation, bring them up to speed or give them an idea of what you’re talking about…as well as a short intro. For example: “Kevin this is Frank, my friend from school. We were just talking about this new smartphone app.”
  如果有人新加入一场谈话,帮助他们跟上你们的节奏,告诉他们你们在聊些什么,并简单介绍一些其他人。比如这样:“凯文,这是弗兰克,我在学校的朋友。我们刚刚聊到这个新的智能手机应用程序。”
  15. Keep a mental note of people’s extroversion/introversion tendencies. It prepares you for their reaction to the events or situations around them and builds up your empathy.
  记住他人或外向或内向的性格特点。这样你就会知道他们对于周围的事情会做出何种反应,帮助你建立同感。
  16. Make introductions. (Most people are awful at this and many more forget to ever do this… probably because they can’t remember people’s names.)
  在朋友之间做相互介绍。(大多数对此不擅长,更多的人根本就忘了这个……也许因为他们记不住别人的名字。)
  17. Stay positive. Don’t whine and complain. It gives people a negative impression about your outlook on life and makes people think you are ‘grumpy’.
  保持积极的情绪。不要怨天尤人。这会让他人对你的生活态度留下负面印象,而且让人觉得你是一个“暴脾气”。
  18. Don’t babble. You know people who just won’t shut up. You usually avoid them because you want to engage in a conversation, not be talked at. Don’t be like them.
  不要喋喋不休。你认识一些一说话就停不住的人,你不愿和他们打交道,因为你也想加入一场谈话,而不只是当听众。不要做这样的人。
  19. Tolerance and patience. You will meet people who seem to have no redeeming qualities. Showing tolerance is a great way to accept people for who they are.
  保持宽容和忍耐。你会遇到一些似乎不知道道歉的人。宽容大度是接受这些人的最好办法。
  20 .Don’t argue. This doesn’t mean you should be a “yes man”, or act dumb. It means you should try to see things from their perspective or situation, even if you don’t agree. You maybe able to empathizewith them.
  不要与人争执。这并不意味着你要一味附和或者装聋作哑,而是你应该试着站在他人的角度去看问题,哪怕你并不认同他们。这样一来你也许会理解他们的想法。
  Learning good social skills can make you more approachable, and people will see you in a better, more positive light. It will enhance your social aptitude and the more you practice it, the more you will improve in your sociability. It will help in your personal and work life.
  学习社交技能会让你更平易近人,人们也会对你产生更好更积极的印象。这会提升你的社交能力,你越多加练习,你的交际能力就越好。这会对你的生活和工作都产生帮助。


 在外企工作或者想要去外企工作的人,不是你会说英文就行的。由于文化传统、思维方式、教育习惯的不同,在语言表达上也会有很大的区别,有时甚至会产生南辕北辙的后果。同样一个英文单词,在老外眼里是“含蓄的批评”,在中国人眼里就成了“得到认可”,长此以往的误解,对工作对交流都是极为不利的。以下总结的一些“混外企一定要懂的英语潜台词”,大家不妨学一学,并且举一反三、触类旁通。

  1.Unacceptable
  分析:老外打小受的教育是人要以表扬鼓励为主,所以老外批评人比较含蓄。说你这件事办的unacceptable,已经算是说的很重了。中国老板在外企混久了,也学会了这一招,对你不满的时候写email给你,也是左一个unacceptable,右一个unacceptable。
  潜台词:你这个傻X,你奶奶个熊,给老子小心点,等等。
  2.CC
  分析:就是抄送(揭秘外企电邮制度>>)。我看email,第一看标题,第二看CC给谁,第三才看内容。CC给谁基本上能够说明对方的态度:CC一大批老板的,肯定不是啥好事,对方要推卸责任。
  潜台词:我这件事告诉你了哦,和我没关系了,你自己看着办吧。反正老板都知道了,都盯着你呢。最开心的是看到自己的名字在CC那一栏里面,因为那意味着那就是这封信不用回,看看就可以,有人会回的。
  3.Concern
  分析:中文翻译成"关注",其实根本不是关注的意思。老外要是说他很concern,那就是事情不妙。所谓老外打喷嚏,中国人集体感冒。
  潜台词:老子很不爽,这事儿怎么这么乱七八糟,给我注意点!
  4.Great
  分析:刚才说了,老外打小受教育要多夸人、少批评人,所以老外一天到晚把 “It’s great!”, “You did a great job!”挂在嘴上。初听还飘飘然了几回,听久了才知道其实压根儿就是他们口头禅,心里未必觉得你有多great。同义词还有fantastic,wonderful,gorgeous,fabulous等等。
  潜台词:还马马虎虎啦,一般般,还过得去。
        5.F.Y.I
  分析:以前一直以为是forward邮件的时候系统会自动加上这几个字,因为人家转过来的信上都有这三个字母。过了好久才知道是人家自己加的,意思是:For Your Information。看到这几个字母意味着下面内容和我有关,但是关系不大,看看就好。因为对方如果要你采取行动,一定会说清楚: “Allen, please…” 而不会只是F.Y.I了事。
  潜台词:和你关系不大,给你随便看看。
  6.Issue
  分析:中文翻译成事情,其实是贬义词,准确意思是“不好的事情”。老外说有一个issue,就是有件鸟事要处理。要有很多issue,那就是一团糟。
  潜台词:事情不妙,大家都赶快处理。
  7.Aggressive
  分析:中文翻译成“进攻性的”。在外企里面意思含糊,褒义的有“具有开拓精神的”,“有事业心的”;贬义的有“咄咄逼人的”,“喜欢没头脑乱闯的”,“容易得罪别人的”。反正意思可褒可贬,看你自己琢磨。
  潜台词:面试时候说自己“aggressive”指的是:我可不是那种混日子的人,我是能干事,招我准没错。但是一但说别人“very aggressive”,基本上是在说:这人凶巴巴的,不好相处,做事没头没脑,老闯祸…不是啥好鸟。
  8.Involve
  分析:中文翻译成“介入”,反正involve的老板越高层事情就越复杂。director要是involve了,manager就开始紧张;VP要是involve了,中国区相关人员都别想有好日子过,得加班加得四脚朝天。
  潜台词:大佬很生气,后果很严重。
        9.RESEND!
  分析:重传。关键是还加了惊叹号,这就能表示态度了。
  潜台词:有没在上班的呀?还没有答复过来?是不是在混水摸鱼?我的时间很宝贵的,不快点回复你就死定了。
  10.highlight
  分析:强调。
  潜台词:意思是说你搞不定一定要提前highlight出来,扛不住就早点讲,一般要highlight的东西都是比较难搞定的。
  11.my understanding is...
  分析:翻成中文是我的理解是XXX。
  潜台词:应该是XXX。你的理解有误,我在此再给你解释一下。虽然看上去是对方在说自己的理解,但基本上是认为你的看法是错的,他的是正确的。
  12.I’m very disappointed...
  分析:中文是“我很失望”的意思。
  潜台词是:你怎么搞得,弄成这样。后果有点严重,基本上这个人对你有了一个很差的印象了。


 Could you pack more into each day if you did everything at theoptimal time?如果任何事情都是在最佳时间去做,你的每一天是否就能加进更多的活动?

  A growing body of research suggests that paying attention tothe body clock, and its effects on energy and alertness, can helppinpoint the different times of day when most of us perform ourbest at specific tasks, from resolving conflicts to thinkingcreatively.越来越多的研究表明,多加重视生物钟及其对人的精力和清醒度的影响有助于我们精确找到大多数人一天中从事具体活动──无论是解决矛盾还是创造性思维──的最佳时间。
  Most people organize their time around everything but the body's natural rhythms. Workdaydemands, commuting, social events and kids' schedules frequently dominate -- inevitably clashingwith the body's circadian rhythms of waking and sleeping.大多数人都是围绕要做的事情而非身体的自然节奏来安排自己的时间。每天的工作任务、上下班的交通、社交活动和孩子的日程安排经常支配了我们的时间──不可避免地与人体苏醒和睡眠的生物周期节律发生冲突。
  As difficult as it may be to align schedules with the body clock, it may be worth it to try, because ofsignificant potential health benefits. Disruption of circadian rhythms has been linked to suchproblems as diabetes, depression, dementia and obesity, says Steve Kay, a professor of molecularand computational biology at the University of Southern California. When the body's master clockcan synchronize functioning of all its metabolic, cardiovascular and behavioral rhythms inresponse to light and other natural stimuli, it 'gives us an edge in daily life,' Dr. Kay says.无论将办事时间安排与生物钟协调起来有多么困难,还是值得一试的,因为这样做对身体健康有可能产生极大好处。南加州大学(University of Southern California)分子与计算生物学教授史蒂夫 凯(Steve Kay)说,生物周期节律紊乱与糖尿病、抑郁症、痴呆症和肥胖病等健康问题有关系。凯博士表示,人体生物主钟在让新陈代谢、心血管和行为节奏功能与光及其它自然刺激同步的时候,也“给我们的日常生活带来了点好处”。
  When it comes to doing cognitive work, for example, most adults perform best in the latemorning, says Dr. Kay. As body temperature starts to rise just before awakening in the morningand continues to increase through midday, working memory, alertness and concentrationgradually improve. Taking a warm morning shower can jump-start the process.凯博士说,比如,在从事认知活动的时候,多数成年人的最佳时间是在午前。由于体温在早晨醒来之前开始上升,并且要持续到午后,工作记忆、清醒度和注意力集中度也随之提升。早上冲个热水澡可以加速这一过程。
  The ability to focus and concentrate typically starts to slide soon thereafter. Most people are moreeasily distracted from noon to 4 p.m., according to recent research led by Robert Matchock, anassociate professor of psychology at Pennsylvania State University.在那之后,集中精力的能力一般会很快下降。根据最近由宾夕法尼亚州立大学(PennsylvaniaState University)心理学副教授罗伯特 马丘克(Robert Matchock)牵头开展的研究,大多数人在中午到下午四点之间更容易注意力分散。
  Alertness tends to slump after eating a meal, Dr. Matchock found. Sleepiness also tends to peakaround 2 p.m., making that a good time for a nap, says Martin Moore-Ede, chairman and chiefexecutive of Circadian, a Stoneham, Mass., training and consulting firm.马丘克博士发现,清醒度在饭后往往会迅速降低。马萨诸塞州斯通哈姆市(Stoneham)Circadian培训咨询公司的董事长兼首席执行长马丁 摩尔艾德(Martin Moore-Ede)说,困顿感也往往是在下午两点左右达到顶峰,这是进行午休的好时候。
  Surprisingly, fatigue may boost creative powers. For most adults, problems that require open-ended thinking are often best tackled in the evening when they are tired, according to a 2011 study in the journal Thinking & Reasoning. When 428 students were asked to solve a series of twotypes of problems, requiring either analytical or novel thinking, their performance on the secondtype was best at non-peak times of day when they were tired, according to the study led byMareike Wieth, an assistant professor of psychological sciences at Albion College in Michigan. (Theirperformance on analytical problems didn't change over the course of the day.) Fatigue, Dr. Wiethsays, may allow the mind to wander more freely to explore alternative solutions.让人意想不到的是,疲劳可以增加创造力。2011年《思考与推理》(Thinking & Reasoning)杂志上刊登的一篇研究论文指出,对多数成年人来说,需要开放性思维来思考的问题,其最佳处理时间是在晚上他们感到疲劳的时候。密歇根阿尔比恩学院(Albion College)心理学助理教授马雷克 维斯(Mareike Wieth)牵头的这项研究显示,当428名学生被要求解决一系列要么需要分析能力要么需要创新思维的两种类型的问题时,他们解决第二类问题时的最好表现出现在一天中他们感到疲劳的非高峰时段。(他们解决分析性问题的表现在一整天的过程中没有变化。)维斯博士说,疲劳可以让思维得到更自由的发散,去寻找不同的解决方案。
  Of course, everyone's body clock isn't the same, making it even harder to synchronize naturalrhythms with daily plans. A significant minority of people operate on either of two distinctivechronotypes, research shows: Morning people tend to wake up and go to sleep earlier and to bemost productive early in the day. Evening people tend to wake up later, start more slowly andpeak in the evening.当然,每个人的生物钟不尽相同,这使得日常计划与生理节奏同步难上加难。研究表明,有极少数人做事时属于两种独特的时间类型:早上型的人一般比一般人更早睡早起,一天中工作最有成效的时间是在早上;晚上型的人往往醒来较晚,启动工作较慢,最佳表现时间是在晚上。
  Communicating with friends and colleagues online has its own optimal cycles, research shows. Sending emails early in the day helps beat the inbox rush; 6 a.m. messages are most likely to beread, says Dan Zarrella, social-media scientist for HubSpot, a Cambridge, Mass., Web marketingfirm, based on a study of billions of emails. 'Email is kind of like the newspaper. You check it at thebeginning of the day,' he says.研究表明,在网上与朋友和同事交流也有最优周期。大清早发送电子邮件有助于避开收件高峰期。马萨诸塞州剑桥市(Cambridge)HubSpot网络营销公司的社交媒体科学家丹 萨瑞拉(DanZarrella)在对数十亿封电子邮件进行研究之后表示,早晨六点发送的信息被阅读的可能性最大。他说,“电子邮件有点类似报纸,查阅的时间在一日之初。”


 What you do during your midday break might vary depending on your job, company culture or personal priorities—but the experts agree all workers should try to do these 14 things during lunch hour:你在午休时做什么也许和你从事的工作、企业文化和个人事务的轻重缓急有关,但是专家建议所有员工在午休时都应该做以下14件事:

  Make a plan。Don’t squander your lunch break because it’s ‘free time’. Time is a non-renewable resource, wherever you are, whatever the time of day. Try your best to plan it out and make the most of it.You should also plan your activities immediately after lunch. Giving thought to how you prioritize and schedule events in the afternoon can maximize your productivity.
  制定计划。不要因为午休是自由时间就去浪费它。无论你身处何地,身在何时,时间是一种不可再生资源。试着最大限度地利用你的午休时间来制定一个好计划。你还需要为午休后的活动做一下安排。想一想下午的时候要如何安排工作的先后顺序,这样有利于你最大地提高效率。
  Take a real break。Breaking from work for 60 seconds to chow down your lunch at your desk doesn’t count. In order to get a period of true respite, the time has to involve an actual break from work. Try not to check your e-mail, bring work with you or talk about work during lunch.
  真正地休息。只花60秒钟在办公桌上狼吞虎咽下你的午餐并不是真正地休息。要想真正地获得喘息,你就需要确实地离开工作一段时间。不要去查看你的电子邮件,不要随身携带工作,也不要在吃午饭时聊工作。
Get up from your desk or work space。Staying at your desk is a big no-no. There are more and more reports on the dangers of sitting too long, so even just getting up to walk to another room to eat is important, or better still, getting outside for some fresh air and a quick walk can do wonders for the body and spirit.
  离开你的办公桌或办公区域。午休时坐在办公桌前是绝对的大禁忌。有越来愈多的报告已经证实了久坐的危害,所以即使只是站起来走一走,走到另一件房间去吃饭也是很重要的。或者更好一点,到室外去呼吸一下新鲜空气,快速地散散步,都对你的身心是很有帮助的。
Eat.Don’t try to be a hero and starve yourself for the sake of being a hard worker or checking off another “to-do” item. You’ll pay for it later when you can’t concentrate and throw your body off balance.
  吃东西。不要想着当英雄,把饿着肚子努力工作或者边吃边做事当成是理所当然。当你稍后没办法集中精力工作或者把自己的身体搞坏了你就会吃到苦头了。
Enjoy your food。Lunch should be about having lunch. Treat yourself to something you enjoy that fits with your diet. If you have a favorite place or a particular food you enjoy make sure to go and enjoy it at least once a week. You only live once.
  享受食物。午饭时间就是要吃午饭。在午饭时间就吃点自己喜欢吃的食物。如果你有特别喜欢的餐馆或者食物,那就去享受这些你喜欢的食物吧,至少每周去吃一次,毕竟人生不会重来。
  Do what you can’t do in the morning or evening。Some errands—like going to the Post Office or the bank—must be handled during work hours. Be strategic and use your lunch break to accomplish some of those personal errands that can’t be handled before or after work.
  做那些早晚无法去做的事情。一些琐事,比如去邮局或去银行,这些事必须要在工作时间才能去做。战略性地在午休时间安排这些事情,把无法在上班前或下班后去做的事情放到午休时间来做。
  Use the time to connect with someone new. Our workplace interactions can be so fleeting that we really never actually get to know the people we spend most of our days with. When you don’t really know those you interact with it’s easy to dehumanize them and take them for granted. Take some time to get out of the office, grab a sit down lunch, and get to know your co-workers.
  去结识新朋友。工作中的交流都是来去匆匆,所以我们很少有机会真正地认识工作中的伙伴。当你无法真正了解你的同事时,你就很容易忽视他们的感情并认为这样是理所当然的。花点时间走出办公室,找个地方坐下来吃顿午饭,好好认识一下你的同事。
Catch up with old friends。If you have a friend who works nearby, try to meet him or her during lunch occasionally. Remember, your personal life needs tending to just as much as your work-life, so be sure to take the spare time you have and use it to fulfill your personal needs. Your midday break is a good opportunity to catch up and socialize, in person or by phone—but don’t lose track of time, and don’t treat it like happy hour.
  与老朋友叙旧。如果你有个朋友在附近工作,那么就试着在午休时间联系一下对方。记住,个人生活和工作一样也需要时时维护。所以,要留出一点时间,并好好利用这些时间来满足你的个人需要。你的午休时间是与老朋友叙叙旧、唠唠嗑的好机会,见面也好,打电话也行。但是不要忘了时间,别把午休时间的小聚当成是下班后的欢乐时光。
  Have a system for dealing with your absence。This will allow people inside and outside the company to know when you will be back, how to contact you in an emergency or have an alternative point of contact. It may also help you relax and avoid obsessively checking your e-mail during lunch.
  自己不在时要做好安排。这样公司内外的人就会知道你什么时候回来,有紧急事件时要怎么联系你或者去联系谁。这样做也能帮助你放松下来,避免在午休时间还要查看邮件。
  Engage in activities that will help you re-energize。Take a walk outside, visit the gym or meditate. Get out and do something that will make you feel better about yourself. A quick dose of sunlight and fresh air is the perfect elixir for the midday blues.
参与一些有助于你恢复精力的活动。外出散步,去健身房或者做冥想。到室外去,并做一些能够让你感觉更好的事情。晒晒太阳,呼吸一下新鲜空气都是驱散午间烦闷的理想方法。
  Network. Even if you’re perfectly happy in your job, and you’re not looking for a new one, it can’t hurt to continuously build and maintain your professional network. This is critical to success in any line of work。
  维护人际网。即使你对现在的工作百分百地满意,你也不想换工作,那也不妨碍你继续去建立和维护你的职场人际网。无论你的工作是什么,职场人际网都是成功的关键因素。
  Don’t get stuck in a routine。Many of us are creatures of habit. Maybe you go to the same pizzeria everyday or eat with the same colleague. You might always use your lunch break to run errands or make personal calls. Try to mix things up in order to clear your head and boost your energy.
  不要陷入常规。我们大多数人都会习惯成自然。也许你每天都会去同一家披萨店或者和同一个同事一起吃饭。也许你常常会利用午休时间去做些琐事或者打些私人电话。试着变换些花样,让你的头脑更清晰,让你的精力更充沛。Avoid all screens。Try to stay away from your iPhone, iPad, Blackberry and computer. Give your eyes a break. Most office jobs require you to stare at a screen all day—so try to avoid that during lunch.If you can’t help it for whatever reason (maybe you want to shop online or e-mail a friend), get up from your desk so your body perceives this as a true break。
  远离所有的屏幕。试着远离你的手机、平板电脑和电脑屏幕。让你的眼睛休息一下。大多数办公室的工作都会要求一整天盯着电脑屏幕,所以在午休的时候就想办法离开一下屏幕吧。如果你无论如何也要坐在屏幕前,比如要网购或者要发邮件给朋友,那么就站起来,这样你的身体才能真正感到休息。
  Don’t take too long or too short of a break。If you’re allotted an hour for lunch, take it. Maybe not every day, but when you can, use the full sixty minutes to get out, eat, exercise your mind or body, catch up with an old friend or a colleague and/or tackle items on your personal agenda.However, if everyone else in the office takes shorter breaks, follow suit so you don’t stand out。
  休息时间不要太长或太短。如果你有一个小时的午休时间,那就好好利用。即使不能每天都这么做,一旦有机会,就把这整整60分钟的时间好好地用来出去走走,吃吃东西,锻炼深陷,与老友或同事聊聊天,或者处理一下私事。但是,如果办公室里的其他人午休时间都不长,那么你也要随大流,不然就会显得太不合群了。


 There are many new grads headed into the real world this time of year.

每年的这个时候,都会有一大批应届毕业生踏入社会。
It seems like a long time ago since my own graduation. I was recently asked for my advice to new graduates entering the workplace.
距离我自己毕业似乎已经是很久以前的事了。最近有人就应届生走进职场的事宜向我征求意见。
        So, here are my 20 Workplace Tips for New Grads, from a Time &Life Management perspective, of course.
  这里是我为应届毕业生准备的20个职场小贴士,当然这些建议是从时间和人生管理角度出发的。
  1. Get to Work on Time– Unlike school, you can’t get away with sleeping in and not showing up. It will catch up to you quickly. Being present is the first step to success and the early bird is often rewarded.
  按时上班——职场不像学校,在学校即使睡过头或跷课也没什么大不了的,但上班以后如果你还这么散漫,很快就会受到处罚。按时上班是迈向成功的第一步,并且记住,早起的鸟儿有虫吃。
  2. Do Your Homework – Just because you are out of school doesn’t mean homework ends. There will be times that you have to work outside working hours. Find your balance, but do your work when it is required.
  做好功课——离开学校并不意味着就不用做家庭作业了。工作以后,你会经常面临8小时之外还得工作的状况。合理安排你的时间,但是需要加班时仍要做好你的工作。
  3. Watch Your Reputation– You reputation in the working world will precede you, and it will follow you wherever you go. In the online hyper-connected world, this is more true than ever. Always, defend your reputation.
  注意你的声誉——在职场,声誉代表着你的形象,并且时刻伴随着你。在这个信息互联的时代,它比以往任何时候都更加真实。因此要注意维护你的声誉。
  4. You Have to Do the Work – Sorry, but there are no shortcuts. There is no 4-hour work week. There is no get rich quick. You have to put in the time. And yes, you have to do the work. If someone tells you otherwise, run the other direction, they are trying to sell you something.
  必须完成工作——这里没有捷径可以走,没有每周4小时的工作,没有快速致富的妙计。你必须投入时间。也就是说你必须工作。如果有人跟我说的不一样甚至相反,他们可能是在试图卖给你什么东西。
  5. Bring Your Skills– Just because you are new to the workplace, do not be intimidated. You are bringing skills and knowledge that the workplace is hungry for. Contribute what you can and learn from others that have preceded you.
  亮出你的本领——不要仅仅因为你是新来的就有畏惧心理。你身上有职场需要的技能和知识。尽力为工作付出,并多向前辈学习。
  6. Work Hard– Always give your best effort. You never know what task is critical to your future success or may open a door of opportunity. If you find yourself in a job where you can’t give your all, it’s time to move on.
  努力工作——尽最大的努力工作。你永远也不知道哪份工作会对你未来的成功产生至关重要的作用,或向你开启机遇之门。如果你觉得现在的工作不能发挥你的潜力,那么是时候换工作了。
  7. Build Relationships– Whether you a social butterfly or a shy individual, make sure you build strong relationships. You do this by genuinely caring and supporting others. Hard work counts, but relationships make the world go round.
  建立自己的人脉——不管你是长袖善舞还是内向害羞,都要建立良好的人脉。要做到这一点,你要真诚的关心和帮助他人。努力工作很重要,但成功更多来自强大的人脉。


 1.In the middle of something?正在忙吗?

 
我知道有许多许多的人,对于某一种概念学会了一种说法之后,从此就只会用这种说法。例如‘你在忙吗?'这个句子,很多人在国中起就知道要说,"Are you busy?" 讲到了来美国留学三年,他还是只会说 "Are you busy?"。其实有时候我们的眼界要放广一点,对于同一个概念要有不同的变化。就像是 "Are you busy?" 这句话,其实老美也很常用 "In the middle of something?" ,(但这句话比较接近于 "Are you busy right now?" 是问人家‘现在'是不是正在忙? "Are you busy?" 的含意比较广,也可指‘最近'忙不忙?) 大家不要小看这么小小的变化,如果你除了 "Are you busy?" 之外,有时还懂得刻意去用 "In the middle of something?" 我相信你的的英文说出来就会跟别人不一样。举个例子吧,办公室里想找人八卦,又怕人家正在忙,这时你就可以问他,"In the middle of something?" (正在忙吗?)
 
记得在不久之前看过的一部黑人电影 Down to Earth 中也有 in the middle of something 这个用法,只不过男主角是用这句话来提出一个论点,"The first kiss is always in the middle of something." 也就是说,初吻总是发生在讲话讲到一半时,或是当你们正在作其它的事情时,通常是果不其然的。他同时也觉得,"The first kiss is the only real kiss in your relationship." (只有初吻才是真正的吻),"The others are just protocols" (其它的都只是一种敷衍、虚应故事而已.)
 
2.What are you up to?你正在做什么?
 
跟上面的例子一样,‘你正在做什么啊?'这句话通常我们就只会说,"What are you doing?" 这样子不会很无聊吗? 其实有时我们可以换句话说。例如: "What are you up to?" 同样也是问人家你正在做什么。承上例,假设你在办公室里,你想找人八卦,所以问同事,"In the middle of something?" 他回答,"Kind of." (算是吧.) 这时你就可以打破砂锅问到底,"What are you up to?" (那你最近在忙什么啊?) 另外有时候老美见面时也会问 "What are you up to?" 意思就是问你最近在做什么啊? 跟另一句问候语 "What's up?" 意思上很接近。但是你要听对方的语气喔! 有时候 "What are you up to?" 指的虽然还是 "What are you doing?" 但它却是‘你在搞什么鬼啊?'的意思喔! 例如当你看到别人在乱翻你的东西,你就可以责问他,"Hey,what are you up to?" 也就是骂他‘你在搞什么鬼啊?'。或是像电影 Blow 里毒贩的老爸骂他的儿子,"I know what you are up to." (我知道你在干些什么勾当.) 以上这些例子里,"What are you up to?" 完全可以用 "What are you doing?" 来取代,只不过因为我们在说话时要力求变化,所以要多学几种不同的讲法.
 
其实 "What are you up to?" 还有许多其它的意思,在此不一一列举,不过还有一个比较常用的解释是,‘进展的如何了?'例如朋友告诉你他正在写一部武侠小说,(就像我的 labmate 一样),你就可以问他,"What are you up to?" (进展的如何了),而他的回答可能是,"I am writing Chapter 3 now." 我现在正在写第三章呢.
 
3.Can you just give me a ballpark figure?能不能给我一个大概的数字.
 
Ballpark 指的是专供球类比赛的公园,特别是指大型的棒球场。例如亚特兰大勇士队 (Atlanta Braves) 的主场,Turner Field 就是一个 ballpark。那什么是 ballpark figure 呢? 通常在棒球比赛时不是都会报今天的观众人数,例如是 49,132 人吗? 这个数字 49,132 就是 ballpark figure,但这只是一个大约的估计数字而已,所以 ballpark figure 的意思就是指大约的估计数字。所以在公司里如果老板问会计,上个月水电费总共多少钱? 之后再加上一句,"Just give me a ballpark figure." 意思就是我只要一个大略的数字就行了。甚至有些老美懒到就只说 ballpark,所以老板也有可能会说,"I'll need a ballpark of the revenue last year." (我需要去年的营收的大约数字.) 你就要自己知道这个 ballpark 是 ballpark figure 的意思.
 
其实很多像 ballpark 这种有点俚语的讲法,你去问美国人,我保证他们百分之九十九点九都知道 ballpark 的意思。但是有很多外国人,不管他们的英语再流利,不管在美国住多久,却还是常常会有听不懂的状况。拿这种俚语去跟美国人交谈,通常是没问题的,但是如果去跟英语同样也很流利的老印,ABC,或是在美国住了很久的外国人,则不保证他们能听得懂。
 
4. Bottom line: We have to turn into profit by 2002。最重要的是: 我们必须在 2002 年前转亏为盈.
 
大家看过财务报表没? 上面是一大堆密密麻麻的数字,告诉你公司的资产有多少,折旧多少,应收帐款多少。但是这些都不是最重要的,最重要的在最最下面那一行 (bottom line),叫净赚 (Net earnings) 告诉你这家公司总共加起来到底是赚钱还是赔钱,(这其实才是最重要的,不是吗?) 所以 bottom line 这个字后来就变成了有‘最重要的是...'的意思。例如商场上有句名言,"In business,If you don't take care of your customers,somebody else will。And that is the bottom line." (如果你不关心你的顾客的话,其它的人会,这是最重要的原则。) 另外 bottom line 也有‘最后的底限',‘不能再退让的原则'的意思。例如老板可以告诫员工,"Bottom line: We have to ship this order by Friday." (我最后的底限是,我们必须在星期五前运交这批货。)
 
5.The new CFO was sent to bring the company out of the red.这位新的财务长被派来把公司从赤字中拯救出来.
 
中国人喜欢红色,所以股市大涨时盘面上都是红通通的一片。不过欧美国家对红色的认知则大不相同,红色就表示亏损,赤字。像之前提到的 bottom line 如果是用红笔写的,那就是表示公司整体上来说是赔钱的。相反的如果是用黑笔写的,则表示是赚钱的。所以我们常可以听到 in the red 或是 in the black 这样的讲法,其实就是指公司赚不赚钱。当然啦,我们也可以用最简单的讲法,lose money 和 make money 或是形容词 unprofitable 和 profitable来表示赔钱或赚钱。例如这家公司是赚钱的,你可以说,"This company is in the black.","The company is making money." 或是 "The company is profitable." 都可以.
 
讲到这个 profitable 让我不得不提醒大家 non-profit 这个字,因为常常有人会搞错。Non-profit 这个字指的并不是说不赚钱的,而是说‘非营利性质的',例如像消费者文教基金会我们就可以说他是一个 non-profit organization,非营利机构,这种组织就不是以赚钱为目的。但 nonprofitable 的话则是指不赚钱的就等于 unprofitable 或是 non-profit-making.


 涉及到经济方面的最新问题与我们息息相关。因此,对每个公司而言,无论是在哪个发展阶段,我们都会面临这样的情况,因为我们会涉及到诸如"employment"(雇佣), "income"(收入), "combating poverty"(贫穷), "hunger"(饥饿), "resource transfers"(资源转移), "taxation"(税收), "purchase and sale of goods"(采购)这样的术语。

 
当你要买电影票的时候,为轿车加油的时候,我们正在涉及"trade and finance"(贸易与金融);我们正在"consuming"(消费),"spending"(花费),所以我们在使金钱"circulate"(流 通)。不是碰巧,有一种很流行的预测说,"money that makes the world go round"(金钱使世界运转)。世界在货物贸易及服务中运转。
 
"Cash is King"(现金至尊)。当你有很多可以自由支配的现金,你能购买很多东西。"global recession"(全球经济衰退)来袭,是因为没有很多现金在流通,很多人有许多"debt"(负债)。因此,对公司而言,购买原材料以及支付员工薪 资是很困难的。因此,很多公司倒闭了,很多人失业了。
 
很多人从"World Bank"(世界银行)"borrow"(借贷) 大量钱款。世界银行无法帮助那么多国家,因为它自身也没有那么多现金,很多国家"incurred"(招致)了更多负债。因此,我们看到食品和其他我们日 常基本所需的"commodities"(商品)价格上涨了。简单而言,生活费用上涨了。
 
有时候一个国家的自然和"political stability"(政治稳定)会影响某些货物和材料的价格。如果发生了干旱或洪水,食品价格会被负面地"affected"(影响)。你或许会发现, 你花了很多钱买了一袋马铃薯。如果自然环境好了,情况就会相反了。你或许会发现,你花了同样的钱,但是却得到了更多的马铃薯。
 
不知不觉中,其实我们在很多方面都对经济发展作出了贡献。当我们所有人全都在工作时,我们就是在改变我们的生活。


 【情景对话】

 
A: Can you help me a minute?
A:你能帮我一会忙吗?
B: Sure, what can I do for you?
B:当然可以,让我帮什么忙?
A: I am trying to write a letter to one of our clients, but I just don't know exactly what to say. I don't even know how to get started! I know I should write Dear Mr. or Ms., but the problem is I don't know the name of the contact person.
A:我在试着给我们的一个客户写封信,但就是不知道究竟该说些什么。我甚至不知道如何起头。我知道我应该写“亲爱的…先生/女士”,但问题是我不知道联系人的姓名.
B: You can just put, “Dear Sir or Madam” or if it’s not personal, you can write “______①______”.
B:你只要写“亲爱的先生/女士”就可以,或者如果不是私人信件,你还可以写“相关人员收”。
A: Okay, so I first thank them for their business, I can say something like, "we are very grateful for your continued support." How’s that?
A:好的,那我先向他们为我们所做的一切表示感谢,比如我们可以说,“我们非常感谢你们对我们一贯的支持”。这样写怎么样啊?
B: Good, but also, ____②____ you want to tell them the reason you are writing. Give them a reference.
 
B:很好,但是你也可以马上说明你写信的原因,给他们一点提示。
A: Like, "Regarding our new product line, we would like to announce a special price discount"
A:比如,“关于我们的新产品,我们想发布一个打折特价通知”
B: Right. Do you need them to respond?
B:非常正确。你需要他们回复吗?
A: Yes, the letter will have a survey inside that they should complete and return to our office. How should I write that?
A:是的,信里要加个调查表,让他们填完并交回我们办公室,这个我应该怎么写?
B: You can tell them, "Please find enclosed our customer service survey”. Or also, you can say "attached is our customer survey". If you need the results right away, you can tell them it is urgent by saying," Please return the survey without delay or as soon as possible.” Maybe a more polite way is “at your earliest convenience."
B:你可以告诉他们“请查收随信所附的顾客服务调查表”,或者还可以说“随信附上我们的顾客调查表“。如果你急于要这些调查结果,你就可以告诉他们事情紧急,说“请立即返回调查表”,或者“尽快返回”。或许更客气的说法是“在您方便时,务请从速回复”。
B: Great! And what do you think I should close it with?
A:太好了!你认为我应该怎样收尾?
A: Since you don't know them that well personally, probably the best way would be “Yours faithfully” or “Sincerely. You could also say, ”Best Regards”, but I don't think that would be appropriate because you don't have the name and obviously haven’t met them.
A:既然你对收信人的个人情况不了解,可能最好的方式就是“你忠实的。。。”或者“诚挚的…”.你还可以说“谨致问候”,但因为你不知道收件人的名字,而且显然也没见过他们,所以我认为这个结尾不太合适。
B: Okay, Thanks a lot for your help!
A:太好了,谢谢你帮了我个大忙

商务英语的涵盖范围很广,国际贸易以及外企的用人招聘都会用到商务英语词汇。今天,英孚将就商务英语招聘常用到的英语词汇向大家做解释。商务英语招聘词汇将以常见词汇为主。

Read enough help-wanted advertisements, and you'll soon realize that they all basically sound the same. Jargon like "detail-oriented" and "self-starter" is so overused that the positions advertised begin to sound unremarkable: part of the expected landscape of hunting for a job.招聘广告看多了,很快就会发现它们听上去都差不多。注重细节有主动性等字眼泛滥成灾,招聘职位看上去千篇一律,这种情况已经成为找工作时常见的现象。

But if you stop and think about what all of these buzzwords are signaling, you'll realize how much information you just might miss if you fail to read between the lines. First of all, when employers fall back on the same old jargon to advertise positions, it could very well be that they actually have no idea what they are looking for. They just know they have a spot to fill.但如果你能停下来,想想这些招聘的热门字眼究竟意味着什么,就会发现字里行间隐藏着大量有用的信息,一不留神就会漏掉。首先,如果公司在招聘广告中采用这些套话,很可能是因为他们对于所要招的职位全无概念,只知道有一个空缺需要填补。

商务英语招聘常用词汇

商务英语应用文中报告分为两种,第一种是读书报告。比如读一本书或者看一本小说写一个读书报告。另一种报告就是书面报告,书面报告考试的可行性和可能性更大一些。书面报告与备忘录的写法很类似,所不同的就是书面报告一般是下级写给上级,它也需要交代清楚四件事:时间、事件、写信人、收信人。
