Ways to Achieve Your Goals

实现目标的几个方法

From VOA Learning English, this is the Health & Lifestyle report.

你正在收听的是美国之音英语学习节目《健康与生活方式》报道。

If you are like millions of people around the world, the New Year brings with it new goals.

如果你与世界上千万人的一样,新年也会给自己设定新目标。

Perhaps you want to save money, lose weight or learn a new skill. You tell yourself, "This is the year I'm going to ... (fill in the blank.")

或许你的目标是想省钱、减肥或学习一样新技能。你告诉自己“今年我要XXXX。”

But then you get busy.

但是,然后你就忙起来了。

Your daily life -- as wonderful as it can be -- takes up all of your time. Before you know it, weeks, then months have gone by, and you are no closer to your goal.

你精彩无比的日常生活,占据了你的所有时间。不知不觉中,几周过去了、几个月过去了,可你离自己的目标还差得很远。

Time, as they say, waits for no one.

正如大家常说的,“时间不等人。”

Yet your goal remains important. And achieving a goal, no matter how small, feels good. In addition, when we do not work on our goals, we may end up feeling guilty or not successful.

然而,你的目标仍然很重要。实现一个目标,无论是实现一个多么小的目标,感觉都会很棒。此外,当我们没有为我们的目标努力奋斗时,我们可能会感到内疚或感到失败。

So, how can we find time to work on these larger life goals?

那么,我们怎样才能抽出时间去实现这些更大一点的人生目标呢?

Well, many websites address this issue, and they offer some of the same advice: If you want to achieve something, clearly identify it and write it down.

嗯,很多网站都在讨论这个问题,他们提供了一些相同的建议:如果你想实现某个目标,明确地确定目标,并将目标写下来。

Identify specific goals

确定具体目标

As you identify your goals, be specific. If a goal is too general, it may be hard to pursue let alone achieve it.

当你要确定你的目标时,要具体一些。如果一个目标太笼统,奋斗的方向便很难确定,就更不用说要去实现它了。

Let's say your goal is to get in better physical shape. That's a fine idea -- but psychologists might say as a goal, it is too general.

假设你的目标是保持更好的身材。这个主意很不错,但心理学家可能会说,这作为一个目标实在是太笼统了。

To make the goal more specific, you could sign up for a regular exercise class. So, whether you are dancing, doing yoga or kickboxing, you have a regular commitment every week. You could also say your goal is to lose a certain amount of weight in a certain amount of time.

为了使得目标更具体,你可以报名参加一个定期的健身班。所以,无论你是在跳舞、做瑜伽或是练自由搏击,你每周都有一个固定的安排。你也可以说你的目标是在一定的时间内减掉一定的体重。

Write your goals down

把你的目标写下来

Experts say writing down your goal is a very important step. It gets the goal out of your brain and into the real world.

专家称,写下你的目标是非常重要的一步。写下目标会将目标从脑子里的想法变为现实生活中实际要做的事项。

Some psychologists suggest that writing a goal on paper is better than typing it on a device or saying it into your phone. Your brain receives information differently when it comes from handwriting. Writing things down seems to say to the brain, "I am important! Remember me!"

一些心理学家建议,把目标写在纸上比写在设备上或写在手机上效果要更好。当你用笔将想法写在纸上时,你的大脑接收到的信息是不同的。把事情写下来,就仿佛是这个事项在对大脑说:“我很重要!一定要记得我!”

Writing has another benefit: You can post your goal somewhere as a reminder. As you sit down at your computer or pour your morning coffee, your goal stares you in the face and asks, "What are you going to do about me today?"

写下来还有另一个好处:你可以将你的目标贴在某个地方作为提醒。当你坐在电脑前或倒咖啡的时候,你的目标就会盯着你的脸问:“你今天打算对我做点什么?”

Tell a friend

把你的目标告诉一个朋友

Telling someone your goal is also helpful.

将你的目标告诉别人也会起到帮助作用。

If someone else knows about your goals, you are held accountable for any progress or lack of progress. Your friend might ask, "So, how many pages of your novel have you written?" If you keep saying "none," you might feel badly.

如果别人知道你的目标,你要对目标是否有任何进展负责。你的朋友可能会问:“那么,你的小说写了多少页了?”如果你一直说“一页未写”,你可能会自我感觉很糟糕。

Now you feel a pressure to do it -- the pressure of your friend's opinion of you. And that can be a big pressure! Many people do not want to let others down, especially friends and family.

这样的话,对于做这件事,你会觉得有压力----来自朋友对你看法方面的压力。这对你来说许是一个很大的压力!很多人不想让别人失望,尤其是不想让自己的朋友和家人失望。

Break down BIG goals into small ones

将大目标分解成小目标

Not all goals are created equal. Some can be quite big. And for those bigger goals, experts suggest breaking them down into smaller ones.

并非所有的目标都是平等的,有的目标可能很大。对于那些更大一些的目标,专家建议将其分解成更小的目标。

So, let's say you want to work for yourself. You love cooking. So, you decide to start your own company that supplies food for special events. Now, that is a very big goal. But it is made up of many smaller goals. So, identify them, write them down and set for yourself time limits.

所以假设你想为自己打工(创业)。你喜欢烹饪。因此,你决定开办自己的公司,专为特殊活动提供食物。这是一个很大的目标,但这个很大的目标是由许多较小的目标组成的。所以,找出这些较小的目标,将它们写下来,并给自己设定时间限制。

These suggestions all help to make your goals real. If you simply think about your goals, they can easily get lost in your brain - which, after all, has a lot to do in a day.

这些建议都有助于实现你的目标。如果你只是简单地思考你的目标,它们很容易就会被遗忘,毕竟,每天都有很多事情要做。

Other experts remind us of another detail as we set our goals for the New Year: The goals may change. Or your life situation may change. Or you may change. So, it is a good idea to check in with yourself. Is this goal still what you want? Is your approach still working? If things are not proceeding forward, perhaps you need to change something.

其他专家提醒我们,在设定新年目标时要注意的另一个细节是:你的目标可能会变;或者你的生活状况可能会变;或者你可能会改变。所以,自省是个好主意。问问自己这个目标是否还是你想要达成的目标?你的方法是否有效?如果事情没有进展,也许你需要做些改变。

One expert, Ryder Carroll, helps people organize their life's goals by using a simple notebook. He suggests thinking about your goals not as a final destination, but rather as lighthouses guiding you along.

专家赖德·卡罗尔帮助人们用一个简单的笔记本来整理他们的人生目标。他建议不要把你的目标当做最终目标,而应该把你的目标当做指引你前进的灯塔。

It is the pursuit of your goals -- not the reaching of them -- that makes up the weeks, days and hours of our lives. So make sure to have fun along the way!

我们生命中的每周、每天、每小时,不是由达到目标的日子构成的,而是由追求你的目标的日子构成的。所以在追求目标的路上要玩得开心。

And that's the Health & Lifestyle report. I'm Anna Matteo.

And I'm Bryan Lynn.
