精选文章 New Year resolutions 新三50

The New Year is a time for resolutions. Mentally, at least, most of us could compile formidable lists of 'dos' and 'don'ts'. The same old favorites recur year in year out with monotonous regularity. We resolve to get up earlier each morning, eat less, find more time to play with the children, do a thousand and one jobs about the house, be nice to people we don't' like, drive carefully, and take the dog for a walk every day. Past experience has taught us that certain accomplishments are beyond attainment{有的成就是无法达到 的} . If we remain inveterate smokers{根深蒂固的), it is only because we have so often experienced the frustration that results from failure. Most of us fail in our efforts at self-improvement because our schemes are too ambitious and we never have time to carry them out{实施). We also make the fundamental error of announcing our resolutions to everybody so that we look even more foolish when we slip back into our bad old ways{回到老路}. Aware of these pitfalls(困难错误), this year I attempted to keep my resolutions to myself. I limited myself to two modest(适中的 ) ambitions: to do physical exercise every morning and to read more of an evening. An all-night party on New Year's Eve provided me with a good excuse for not carrying out either of these new resolutions on the first day of the year, but on the second, I applied myself assiduously{刻苦地) to the task.

  The daily exercises lasted only eleven minutes and I proposed to do them early in the morning before anyone had got up. The self-discipline required to drag myself out of bed eleven minutes earlier than usual was considerable. Nevertheless, I managed to creep down into the living room for two days before anyone found me out. After jumping about on the carpet and twisting the human frame into uncomfortable positions, I sat down at the breakfast table in an exhausted condition. It was this that betrayed me. The next morning the whole family trooped in to watch the performance. That was really unsettling, but I fended off避开 the taunts嘲笑 and jibes嘲笑 of the family good-humouredly and soon everybody got used to the idea. However, my enthusiasm waned减弱. The time I spent at exercises gradually diminished减弱. Little by little the eleven minutes fell to zero. By January 10th, I was back to where I had started from. I argued that if I spent less time exhausting myself at exercises in the morning, I would keep my mind fresh for reading when I got home formwork Resisting the hypnotizing effect of television, I sat in my room for a few evenings with my eyes glued to book. One night, however, feeling cold and lonely, I went downstairs and sat in front of the television pretending to read. That proved to be my undoing, for I soon got back to my old bad habit of dozing off 打瞌睡in front of the screen. I still haven't given up my resolution to do more reading. In fact, I have just bought a book entitled How to Read a Thousand Words a Minute. Perhaps it will solve my problem, but I just haven't had time to read it!

惭愧, 无聊数了下, 6个词见也没见过, 虽然不影响理解
新年决心总完成不了, 是个问题, 舒适区走出来好难, 即使暂时走出来了,强大的惯性很好就拉回去, 挫败感啊
