    原来最有效率的工作日是星期二

    一周工作日的五天,星期一有 Monday blue,星期五有个俏皮的说法是 Friday I'm in love,剩下的那三天,星期二、三、四总要好好工作了吧!猜猜看哪一天工作最有效率?可不可以每天都这幺有效率?进入本文前,先想想以下英文怎幺说:

    a) 待办事项
    b) 黄金时间
    c) 避开

    According to a survey on 300 HR managers in Canada, Tuesday is the best day to work on important projects or to simply get your  checked. It is the one day of the week when we can 1) buckle down and be the most productive.
    一项针对 300 位加拿大人资经理进行的调查显示,星期二最适合进行重大专案,或将待办工作清单处理完。一个礼拜当中,我们最能全力以赴也最有效率的就是这一天。

    It makes sense-everyone hates Mondays. People unwillingly return to their never ending workload. Wednesdays seem to be a long slog since it is in the middle of the week. As for Fridays, lots of people are already making plans for the weekend.
    听起来蛮合理的-- 每个人都讨厌星期一,人们不情不愿地回到工作岗位,星期三夹在一个礼拜中间,就是个苦日子,到了星期五,很多人已经开始位周末计画了。

    According to the survey by staffing firm Accountemps, Tuesdays are the days when people really 2) get the ball rolling. 33% of the interviewees thought their productivity accelerated on Tuesdays, while 5% on Thursdays and 6% on Fridays. The second most productive day goes to Wednesdays, according to 23%. 14% voted for Mondays and 18% for no particular day.
    而由人力资源公司 Accountemps 进行的调查看来,星期二是员工最能顺利推进工作的一天。33% 受访者认为他们在星期二效率加快,星期四和星期五则分别只获得 5% 和 6% 的票数。效率次高的是星期三,获得 23% 的票数,14% 的人认为周一最有效率,18% 的人则认为没有哪天效率特别高。

    The firm tried to get an idea of people’s efficiency curve, and the results seem consistent regardless of size or type of company.
    这家公司透过和其他当地或国际公司合作,有大型的也有小型的,去全面了解人们是如何工作的,考查得出的结论基本上一致。

    How do you make every day like a Tuesday? Accountemps offered a few tips to increase productivity:

    如何让每天像星期二一样有效率?Accountemps 也提供一些诀窍:

    口语字彙

    1) buckle down 
    buckle down 的字面意思是「弯下来」,请想像一下球员把身体下弯蓄势待发的样子,所以有「开始认真做事」的意思。

    It's time to buckle down and do your assignment. 该开始认真做你的作业了。

    2) get the ball rolling
    Get the ball rolling 意思是开始做一件事,而且让它可以很顺畅地运作。 

    Let's get the ball rolling on this project. 我们来着手进行这个计画吧。

    如果这件事情已经进行到一半,你可以用 keep the ball rolling 表示维持运作顺畅。
