  Why are so many people unhappy in their jobs? There are two primary reasons. First, some people are convinced that earning a living is wasting time that they could spend enjoying themselves or uncovering their true talents.

  If this is the case with you, recall your last long vacation. Was it two weeks of complete enjoyment? Morelikely it was a week and a half of fun in the sun, with another half a week or "Boy. I can't wait to get back to work.”While all work and no play is not good, all play and no work is disastrous. We need to feel we are accomplishing something. We also need some form of order in our lives.

  The second and perhaps more prevalent reason for people not to like their work is that they feel trapped. Once you've been at a company for five years and have a spouse, a mortgage and a child, you often feel youhave very little choice about jumping ship if things aren't turning out as you'd planned. A steady paycheck can be the biggest manacle of all. People resent having to do something because they have no other choice.

  If you find yourself resenting your job because you can't afford to quit. it may be time to prepare what one career counselor humorously calls a "cyanide capsule". He recalls spy movies in which the secret agent bas such a capsule hidden somewhere on his body. If he's captured and tortured unbearably. he has an option. And having an option gives him the strength to hold on a little longer in the hope that the situation may change.

  Rather than cyanide, your option takes the form of an up-to-date resume. You might also take a weekly glance through the help-wanted section, and make some visits to industry functions where low-key networking can take place. You're not giving up your current job. Rather. you are providing yourself with an option. Ifthings get unbearable at work. you could jump ship. Being in this position can do wonders for your attitude. It allows you to enjoy your work Since, in reality, you are t.bere only because you want to be.

  At the core of adopting a positive attitude to your workplace is, above all, assuming responsibility for your own situation. Most people feel controlled by their environment. but they really aren’t. They have toleam to manage that environment so they can get from it what they need.

  A)尽可能地延长假期。

  B)在工作与玩乐之间找到平衡点。

  C)尽快回去工作。

  D)完全地放松,没有任何忧虑。

  [B] 第2段最后三句表明作者认为干活和玩乐应该并行,不能光干活,也不能光玩乐,由此可见,选项B为本题答案。其他选项与作者观点相反,因此都不正确。

  2.文章指出,大部分人都不喜欢自己的工作,因为____________。

  A) 上班工作是在浪费自己的时间

  B) 他们的工作不能带来满足感

  C) 他们完全给工作困住了

  D)收入与工作不成正比

  [C] 原文在首段和第3段分别提到两个人们不喜欢他们的工作的原因,其中第3段提到的第2个原因是more prevalent reason,由此可见,正确选项应与第2个原因同义,选项C是它的近义替换,为本题答案。进项A是第1个原因,但不符合题干most people的要求;选项B和D在原文均未提及。

  3. 当一个人在考虑抉工作时,最大的困难是______________。

  A)离开一间公司和一个好老板

  B)减少家庭负担

  C)放弃稳定的收入

  A)很快找到一份理想的工作

  C)更加能够容忍现在的工作

  [C]作者在第4段首句首先提到“cyanide capsule”,然后在第2、3句对此做出了解释,第4句对cyanide capsule的作用做了总结,选项C是对第4句中的hold on a little longer的近义改写,因此为本题答案。

  5.在什么时候你会改变对工作的态度?

  A)当你有机会做选择的时候。

  B)当你对现在的工作很负责的时候。

  C)当你准备好最新的简历的时候。

  D)当你从工作中得到了你需要的东西的时候。

  [A]第5段倒数第2句表明being in this position就能改变一个人的态度,而this position指的是上文提到的“为自己提供一种选择”。这样,在无法忍受的时候还可以有另一个选择,由此可见,选项A为本题答案。
