Hello, I’m Brian Tracy.
Today I want to give you some tips on how to be more effective in 2018.
The start of a new year always represents an exciting time.
For many people it feels like a fresh start,
brand new year full of brand new possibilities.
If you’re in need of a fresh start this new year,
I invite you to make the most of 2018 by
following these seven tips to be more effective in the new year.
First, set your goals.
Before you can achieve your goals, you first have to set them.
These goals should be more than the typical New Year’s resolutions that
all but forgotten by the time February rolls around.
They should be serious commitments that you follow through on
for the duration of 2018.
The specific goals you set is entirely up to you.

They could be related to your health, your relationships, your career or
anything in between.
The important part is that you choose goals that means something to you.
And then follow through to make those goals a reality.
Second, remember that you are never “stuck”.
Far too many people remain in negative situations,
because they feel as if they are stuck there
with no opportunity for escape.
The reality is though that you are the captain of your life,
where you are and who you have there with you is entirely up to you,
it’s your choice.
Rather than remaining in a negative situation because you feel stuck,
take control of your life in 2018,
and start moving towards whatever it is that brings you happiness and fulfillment
Third, discipline yourself.
You can never underestimate the potential of an individual who is self-discipline.
你的目标 面对的挑战 以及需要完成的任务
Your goals, the challenges you face, and the tasks that you need to do
can all be overcome so long as you have in a discipline.
In 2018, try adopting an attitude of determination and discipline.
Remember, the only thing standing between you and your goals is you.
If you can get past that one obstacle,
you’ll undoubtedly be much more effective in 2018.
Fourth, practice self-evaluation.
Honest introspection is a quality that very few people have.
However, for those who are able to shine the light inward
and honestly evaluate all of their strengths and shortcomings,
introspection and self evaluation can prove incrediblely valuable.
In the old saying by the ancient Greeks,
it said man know thyself is consider the highest of wisdom.
It’s difficult to maximize your strengths and overcome your weaknesses
if you aren’t sure with those strengths and weaknesses truly are.
In 2018, take the time every now and then to
take a step back and reflect.
评价你自己 你的行动 你的表现
Evaluate yourself and your actions and your performance
and then use the information you glean to start bettering yourself in every way you can.
Fifth, learn how to say no.
Yes is not always the right answer.
There is such a thing as stretching ourselves too thin
and people are far too often guilty of agreeing to more and they can actually handle.
You’ll only be effective if you learn how to dedicate your focus,
your most important goals and tasks.
Not everything is going to be a valuable or even enjoyable use of your time.
And it’s often necessary to turn down less important opportunities
in order to free up time and room for the opportunities that mean the most you.
第六 委派任务 就像不是每件事都要做
Sixth, delegate. Just like not every task requires a yes,
Not every task requires your personal attention.
In fact, it’s quite possible that
people around you will have strengths and skills
that make them more capable of tackling a specific task.
The best leaders know how to spot these strengths in other people
and delegate tasks in the most effective way possible.
Of course, not everyone is in a position where they are able to delegate tasks.
If you are though, take advantage of the strengths of the people around you
and learn how to delegate in 2018.
Always ask: does this need to be done?
Does this need to be done now?
Does this need to be done by me?
And if the answer is no, the rule is: if it’s not necessary to do it yourself
It is necessary not to do it yourself.
Seven, declutter your life.
Clutter can come in multiple forms and none of them are helpful.
You may have physical clutter in your workspace that
makes it more difficult for you to efficiently get a job done.
或者你有情感混乱 导致你无法享受生活 达到自己的目标
Or you may have emotional clutter that holds you back from enjoying your life and achieving your goals.
Whatever clatters in your life make 2018
the year that you clean house and
start with a clean clutter free slat.
By the way, there’s a book I want to recommend for you as a Christmas gift
and it’s called the Magic of Tidying up
by Marie Curie, a japanese writer,
one of the most popular books in the world.
And it just shows you how to simplify and unclutter your entire environment.
It’s a literally a life-changing book.
所以在我们结束之前 我要留给一个想法 希望你和你朋友和属下分享：
