【独学チャレンジ】Writingスキルアップ!について~4日目~

どもども~~。ちぷです。

本日はWritingスキルアップチャレンジ4日目!

三日坊主だと思っていたでしょ?笑

実は昨日このWritingチャレンジのことをインスタのストーリーにあげたらスウェーデン出身の友達からメッセージが来て、

「forgettableじゃなくてunforgettableだよ♡」

って、間違いを指摘してくれたんです・・・!

きっとだれも内容は読んでないだろうなぁって思っていたから感激・・・!

周りの人が見てくれているとか、応援してくれているって、何かをがんばるための原動力になりますよね~!

人間ひとりでは生きられないなぁって。改めて思いました。

 

・・・あれ?タイトルに【独学チャレンジ】とか書いちゃっているけど・・・

早速矛盾出てきたぞ・・・

 

ま、まぁ、それは、あの、、言葉のあやってことで、、、

見逃してください・・・笑

 

はい!では早速今日のWritingについて!

テーマは「Managing one's time(時間の管理)」!

はい、なんか深いテーマきた~~~。

ついつい深みにはまって2時間半も書き書きしちゃいました。。

では早速内容みていきましょう~~~。
そして是非みなさんもWriting☆してみてください~☆

ニガテな方は最初は日本語で書いてみて、それから英訳でもいいと思います!

Let's try (´▽`*)ノ


Part1

1. Are you usually on time?
(あなたは時間厳守な方ですか?)
No, basically I am not on time. Especially, when I leave home. I am not good at expecting how long I need to prepare. To make matters worse, I often calculate less than it will take actually. So, I have tried various kinds of measures such as getting my clock five minutes before and, thinking of the departure time of a train five minutes earlier. For example, when I plan to get on a train at two, I try to think that I get on a train at five minutes to two. They sometimes work well, but sometimes fail. However, I usually make it on a train because I run to the station. I guess it is the reason why I cannot leave home on time. I know that I can make it even if I leave home late. All I have to do is running to the station to get on it by departure. So, I often do that unconsciously.

 

2. Can you follow the deadline?
 (あなたは〆切には間に合う方ですか?)
Yes, I usually finish doing something by a deadline though just before a deadline. I cannot do something quickly, so I need time more than others. Besides, I tend to do it as completely as possible. So, I take more time to finish something than others. I tend to hurry to make it to a due date because of those facts.

 

3. Are you fond of making memos or a “to-do “list?
 (あなたはメモをしたり、TODOリストを作るのが好きですか?)
Yes, I follow a kind of my “to-do” list. I have my own schedule. So, I know what I should do and finish the tasks every day as when I was a computer engineer. I like finishing a task because I can feel a sense of achievement or satisfaction.

 

4. What are the things that include your daily schedule?
 (あなたの毎日の予定に含まれていることはなんですか?)
The things that include my daily schedule are taking a mock listening exam for TOEIC and taking an online English lesson. Taking a mock listening exam is to improve my listening skill and get a high score on that test. Taking an online English lesson is to improve my speaking and writing skill. I often watch the Walking Dead with English subtitles though it doesn’t matter to my schedule. However, I believe it would help me improve my reading and listening skills.

 

5. Have you experience forgetting something like an important thing to do?
(あなたは今まで大事な約束をすっぽかしてしまった経験はありますか?)
Yes, I often make a mistake like that. In particular, I prone to misunderstand a date or a time of an appointment. I have some experiences that I went to a restaurant the day before the real appointment with my sister or friends. Unfortunately, it seems that I got used to the situation because I don’t get upset whenever it happens to me.

 


Part2

Describe your own way of managing your time
( あなたがしている時間管理の方法について説明してください。)

I manage my time by updating an Excel file that I use as a schedule. I write my tasks with the times every three months. Then I write a time when I did a task to a blank cell of a certain task every day. On the last of the day, I filled up “NG” with empty cells. It is my routine. I can figure out which task I did, and I didn’t. It helps me look back a day or a month. Also, I can adjust my schedule depending on the previous records. I remove a task that I didn’t often since I recognize it is not important for me without thinking. I believe I know what I should, so I often change my daily schedule flexibly. In addition to that, I use a schedule of my cell phone. I manage the things that are not related to my routine such as an appointment with my friends and how many days I am going to stay in the hotel with them. Speaking of using an Excel file, it is essential for me to get motivated. I feel satisfaction when I complete my all tasks, and it gives me the power to keep them. Retracing the past is also a good aspect of that. It is a great opportunity to change my life better.

 

Part3

1. Do you think if you are a good manager of your time?
(あなたは時間の管理を上手くできていると思いますか?)
No, I never think so. Firstly, I cannot control the time when I get up. I change my schedule flexibly as I mentioned earlier. In other words, I cannot follow my schedule firmly. I have been able to live freely, but I should get strict with myself to grow up more effectively. I would try to do that next year.

 

2. In your culture, do you think it is acceptable to arrive a little late/late?
(あなたの国では(少し)遅れて来ることは許されますか?)
No, it is recognized as rude. In particular, in the business scene. Most “proper” Japanese people prone to get to a meeting place at least before five minutes. Public transportation is also strict on time. So, I sometimes get confused when I travel abroad. However, I assume I suit other countries more than Japan.

 

3. There is a proverb that says, "Manage your time or else your time will manage you." What can you say about this?
 (このようなことわざがあります。「時間を管理しなさい。さもなければ時間があなたを管理するでしょう。」これについてどう考えますか?)
I agree with this. We have only twenty-four hours in a day. We easily waste time if we don’t stick to what we should do the day. I believe we can change ourselves in a year if we make effort to achieve our goal. It depends on how we spend time, spend a day, spend a month, and spend a year. We can change our lives if we can manage our time, but we will decline for sure if we cannot do that.


・・・ふぅ。めちゃめちゃボリューミーになってしまった。。

 

続けるコツは完璧主義にならないことってなんかで見たんだけどな・・・。

あんまりがんばりすぎず、ゆる~く、でもなが~く続けていきたいと思っています!
