   The secret of getting ahead is getting started.”

      前进的秘诀就是行动起来。

      To lose your job is always an unexpected turn in life, it forces you to rearrange your daily routine and reconsider your priorities. We all have had to encounter this situation at some point, and it can suck. But at the end, it is just the starting point for a new beginning; and if you handle it the smart way, it doesn’t have to be a tragedy but a growth opportunity.

      失去工作是你人生中无法预料的拐点,它强迫你重新规划你的日常工作并慎重考虑优先要做的事。在一些点上我们都会遇到这种情况,而且他可能会很糟糕。但是最后表明,这只是新的开始的起点,而且如果你以正确的方式来处理它,它就不是一场灾难而是一个成长的机会。

      There are a few things you need to do to make the most out of your time and money while being unemployed, so that instead of getting worried, you stay sane and motivated.

      当你失业时,你需要做一些事让你从时间和金钱中摆脱出来(这里有点无措。。。不知道怎么译好?),以便于你保持理智,有动力,而不是失落忧郁。

Start budgeting

开始预算
      First thing’s first. You need to plan ahead and stay organized. Having so much free time and being unable to get out of your house will definitely make you no good. If budgeting wasn’t one of your habits, it better be starting from now. Analyze your expenses, define which ones you can cut off, and which ones are your real needs. Stick to the budget!

      第一要做的事也是最重要的事。你需要计划一下未来以保持有条不紊,拥有如此多的空闲时间并且不能走出家门,因为这势必会使你不愉快。如果以前预算不是你的习惯之一,那么从现在开始吧!分析你的开支,明确哪些是你可以终止的项目,哪些是你必需的东西。请坚持预算!

Start simplifying your life

开始简化你的生活
      As obvious as this may sound, it is sometimes easy to forget you cannot keep doing the same things you did while on a stable job, at least for now. You will need to stop going out to eat and start cooking some more, going out for runs in the park instead of paying for the gym and inviting friends over on the weekends. If you are one of those people who still loves reading books on actual paper, try the public library, you get to take books home for free…really. There are a million things you can do to reduce your expenses without making a huge sacrifice. Replace your Starbucks latte with a home-made coffee and your movie ticket with a $1 Netflix rental. You will be surprised.

      这听起来很明显,当你有一个稳定的工作时,你很容易忘记一个不持续做的事,至少到现在为止。(这里有些纠结!求解!)你应该停止外出吃饭而开始学烹饪,去公园跑步而不是为体育馆付费,以及整个周末都邀请朋友。如果你是那些喜欢阅读纸质书籍的人之一,去公共图书馆吧!你可以免费借书回家,真的!你可以做很多事情来缩减开支,并且不需要付出巨大代价。让家庭自制的咖啡来代替星巴克,而你的电影票只需要一美元,你会很惊讶的!
