What you're doing,
right now, at this very moment,
is killing you.
More than cars or the Internet
or even that little mobile device we keep talking about,
the technology you're using the most almost every day
is this, your tush.
Nowadays people are sitting 9.3 hours a day,
which is more than we're sleeping, at 7.7 hours.
Sitting is so incredibly prevalent,
we don't even question how much we're doing it,
and because everyone else is doing it,
it doesn't even occur to us that it's not okay.
In that way, sitting has become
the smoking of our generation.
Of course there's health consequences to this,
scary ones, besides the waist.
Things like breast cancer and colon cancer
are directly tied to our lack of physical in activity,
Ten percent in fact, on both of those.
Six percent for heart disease,
seven percent for type 2 diabetes,
which is what my father died of.
Now, any of those stats should convince each of us
to get off our duff more,
but if you're anything like me, it won't.
What did get me moving was a social interaction.
Someone invited me to a meeting,
but couldn't manage to fit me in
to a regular sort of conference room meeting, and said,
"I have to walk my dogs tomorrow. Could you come then?"
It seemed kind of odd to do,
and actually, that first meeting, I remember thinking,
"I have to be the one to ask the next question,"
because I knew I was going to huff and puff
during this conversation.
And yet, I've taken that idea and made it my own.
So instead of going to coffee meetings
or fluorescent-lit conference room meetings,
I ask people to go on a walking meeting,
to the tune of 20 to 30 miles a week.
It's changed my life.
But before that, what actually happened was,
I used to think about it as,
you could take care of your health,
or you could take care of obligations,
and one always came at the cost of the other.
So now, several hundred of these walking meetings later,
I've learned a few things.
First, there's this amazing thing
about actually getting out of the box
that leads to out-of-the-box thinking.
Whether it's nature or the exercise itself, it certainly works.
And second, and probably the more reflective one,
is just about how much each of us
can hold problems in opposition
when they're really not that way.
And if we're going to solve problems
and look at the world really differently,
whether it's in governance or business
or environmental issues, job creation,
maybe we can think about how to reframe those problems
as having both things be true.
Because it was when that happened
with this walk-and-talk idea
that things became doable and sustainable and viable.
So I started this talk talking about the tush,
so I'll end with the bottom line, which is,
walk and talk.
Walk the talk.
You'll be surprised at how fresh air drives fresh thinking,
and in the way that you do,
you'll bring into your life an entirely new set of ideas.
Thank you.
(Applause)

展開內容
你是否時常煩惱,工作與健康到底該如何兼顧?
從今天起換一個想法,將運動融入你的工作中吧。

1
be killing somebody0:18
be killing somebody 指的是「給某人帶來極大麻煩與痛苦」的意思。常見的用法是「惱人的事物」+ be 動詞 + killing 某人。
The dog that kept barking last night was killing me.
昨晚一直吠的那隻狗是煩死我了。

2
get off your duff1:18
get off your duff 是一個俚語,意指「站起來幹活,別再懶懶散散的」的意思。duff 在這裡做「臀部」的意思,亦可以作「麵團」解。
You can't just expect yourself to succeed. Get off your duff to make a difference.
你不能坐著期待成功的到來。快起來幹活做些什麼吧!


3
huff and puff1:41
huff 與 puff 這裡皆作動詞使用。 huff 有深呼吸的意思,puff 則有喘氣 (地走) 的意思。顧名思義 huff and puff 就是氣喘吁吁的樣子。此外 huff and puff 也可作「大聲抱怨某事」的意思。
The old guy huffed and puffed up the steep hill and was moved by the breathtaking view.
老人氣喘吁吁爬上山頂後,被美景感動地說不出話來。



4
outside of the box2:22
think outside of the box 是個很好用的片語,字面上的意思是在盒子外面思考,意即跳脫既有的框架,用全新的角度去思考。因此 動詞+ outside of the box 意即:用全新的方式、角度去做,或者思考一件事情。
The teacher encourages her students to think outside of the box so that they are able to draw different conclusions from the same issue.
老師鼓勵學生用不同方式思考,如此學生們才能對相同議題提出不同結論。

5
bottom line3:02
bottom 是「底部」、「臀部」的的意思,而 line 則有「台詞」、「句子」的意思。bottom line 通常是指一篇演說的結尾句、尾聲的部分。 這裡講者使用了一個雙關,用了 bottom 來呼應演說開頭的 tush,第一個是取 bottom 「臀部」的意思,代表她的演說前後呼應,都講到「臀部」,又同時有 bottom line 的意思,表明自己即將帶出演說最後的結論。
The bottom line delivered at the end of the speech by the lecturer was quite profound and powerful.
這位講者的演講結尾相當意味深長且充滿力量。


看到這裡,各位觀眾是不是覺得不管做什麼事情,只要用全新的角度去思考,並以不同的方式去做,往往會有意想不到的結果呢?趕快在生活中實踐看看吧!各位觀眾有什麼經驗想分享,也歡迎在底下留言喔!
