Many of us keep asking the question. What is personal development? It simply means that you do a daily activity to improve your day-to-day performance. Self-development or personal growth also covers a broad set of areas. It is also about improving yourself mentally and physically and all the areas of personal development are therefore to improve your mind, heart, body and spirit. There are a few steps that lead to success through personal development.

Hoping for success through personal development requires you to set a goal. Setting a goal is an organized personal planning. This is a reliable method for identifying (確認) the areas you need to succeed in — be it your professional (專業的) career or personal life. To start setting a goal, the first step you need to take is to decide which direction you want to take your life in. From the very first step, your goal will keep you focused on the direction you have chosen and will act as a reference (參考) for the times when you feel that you have deviated (脫離) from your determined path.

Habits play a key role in one’s life and help one succeed in the career. There is a simple habit plan that you can follow in your everyday life to make positive progress. For example, the healthy habit of going to the gym would keep you energetic throughout the day. There are also many personal development habits that you can develop for a successful career. There is the habit of never leaving a question unanswered, and the habit of going through daily tasks and reviewing the progress of your goal would be of great benefit. Good habits can be inculcated (反復灌輸) only in the formative years of one’s life and one mustn’t hesitate then.

A true fact is that success through personal development of habits requires discipline (自律). Well, that is the secret of developing really good habits with a few clear values and not having to work at keeping them. Most habits need great efforts at their formative stage. It may take some time but when it’s done, you will feel the real value of the habit as it will benefit you. It will help you enjoy most of your daily tasks. There are also some bad habits which play an important part in one’s life. By means of discipline, they can remind us of the important approaches that need to be changed as soon as possible.

My three-year-old son, Dayton, lay on the couch, held the family iPad and clicked on the Angry Birds app. It was a beautiful, sunny Wednesday morning and all he wanted to do was play a video game. I felt guilty. Why hadn’t I planned some activity for us to do together? I’d been wanting for months to spend more time with Dayton, take him to a story hour at the library or to the Native American Museum. But whenever I thought of it I was busy doing something else.

It was so much easier with Sydney. She was always coming to me with a book she wanted me to read to her. She loved playing dress up, having tea parties and social activities I liked too. I’d left my teaching job when she was born to devote my full time to being a mother. But I worried I was shortchanging (忽視) Dayton. What if I made today all about him?

“Let’s do something fun together, just you and me, Dayton. What would you like to do?” I asked. He didn’t hesitate, “Crystal Bridges.”

“Sounds good,” I said, trying to hide my surprise. Crystal Bridges, an art museum in nearby Bentonville, is home to world famous paintings and sculptures (雕塑) by American artists. We’d been there as a family a few times, but an art museum was not exactly the first thing I think of when I was looking for someplace fun to take a three-year-old boy to. Was this really what he wanted? Still, this was Dayton’s day. I told myself to just go with the flow, but even as we were in the car I couldn’t help but wonder what I was getting myself into.

We finally got to the museum. Dayton glanced toward the entrance. Suddenly he ran to a sculpture of the word  LOVE. With his hand, Dayton followed the curves (弧形) of the letters. He moved slowly through the space between the  V  and the  E,  then climbed to the top of the L and sat there, a big smile across his face, as if he’d just gotten to the top of a jungle gym (兒童游戲用的攀登架).

Then he was off again, tearing across bridges and up some stone steps. He found a yellow butterfly and dashed after it, the two of them doing a kind of dance together. “I see you found something yellow,” I said. “That’s your favourite colour, isn’t it?” Dayton nodded excitedly, as if this was the most amazing thing there was to know about him. I probably never would have noticed it.

I was still considering this when Dayton had ran to a distant spring. “Is the water cold?” he asked.

“Yes,” I said. “It comes from under the ground.”

“Must be the coldest water in the world!” he said. Usually, I felt compelled (強迫) to tell him that a rock or a tree wasn’t the biggest in the world. But that day I let it go.

He ran almost the whole way and led me inside the museum to a big room designed for children. Dayton got a box of tangrams (七巧板) and in minutes there before him appeared a ... What was it?

“It’s a car,” he said. To me they were just pieces of plastic, but Dayton’s mind was so different from mine. For him everything was so fresh and exciting that I had to run so as not to miss a single thing. I could understand my son’s amazement, now that I was finally seeing the wonder of who he was made to be.

The comic-book superhero Daredevil (超膽俠) became blind by accident, but his blindness only made his other senses superhuman.

It’s commonly believed that deaf or blind people may have other Daredevil-like senses. But the reality is that people with one impaired (受損的) sense don’t have general improvements in their other senses, but rather very specific brain changes, new research shows.

Scientists are now uncovering some of the brain differences that underlie changes or improvements in other senses.

“For example, research shows that people who are deaf from birth tend to be more sensitive to light or movement in their peripheral vision (周邊視覺), compared with people who can hear,” said Christina Karns, a neuroscientist at the University of Oregon.

Karns and her colleagues wanted to know whether the areas of the brain responsible (負責的) for hearing were also organized differently in deaf people, compared with people who could hear. In experiments with people who can hear, when the participants see a light flashed in their peripheral vision and hear two beeps at the same time, they experience the illusion (錯覺) that they saw two flashes of light. Karns’ team did the same experiment with deaf individuals, except that the beeps were replaced with puffs of air on the participants’ faces.

Deaf people reported seeing two flashes of light when they felt two puffs of air, suggesting they use touch the same way hearing people use sound to improve visual accuracy (精確性). “Hearing people are doing this all the time,” said Karns, who presented her findings. “Deaf people don’t have sound, so they end up building a visual system that’s more accurate.”

But the improvements in deaf people’s other senses are very specific. Studies show that vision in the fovea, the central part of the eye, is no better in deaf people than in hearing people. Also, the improvements aren’t seen in people who become deaf later in life.

One of the big questions driving research on this topic is whether being deaf or blind frees up brain areas for other senses. Stephen Lomber, a neuroscientist at the University of Western Ontario, and colleagues found that cooling down the hearing cortex (皮層) of deaf cats caused the animals to lose their improved peripheral vision, suggesting those brain areas had, indeed, been related to vision.

Taken together, the research into the differences between deaf people’s brains and hearing people’s brains shows there’s a lot of hope for ways we can train our brains. But humans haven’t developed super senses just yet.

1.Most people think people with one impaired sense _____.

A. experience great changes in their brains

B. tend to become a superman like Daredevil

C. generally have a super ability in other senses

D. should improve their other senses through training

2.According to Karns’s experiment, deaf people _____.

A. have a much better fovea than hearing people

B. have totally different brains from hearing people

C. have obvious illusions about light flashed in front of them

D. take advantage of their touch to improve visual accuracy

3.In Paragraph 8, the experiment with deaf cats is used to show _____.

A. the hearing cortex helps train our brains

B. deaf cats like using their improved peripheral vision

C. the ability of Daredevil can become a reality in our life

D. brain areas for other senses have a relationship with vision

4.What does the passage mainly talk about?

A. Whether deaf people have superhuman vision.

B. How deaf people use their other senses in life.

C. Experiments on the superhuman vision of the deaf.

D. Differences between deaf people and hearing people.

 

Ridgewood is a small town 20 miles from Manhattan, New York. It is a quiet town, perfect for raising children away from the rapid pace of the city. However, besides hours of homework, many Ridgewood children have too many after-school activities — from swimming to piano classes. Some kids compare their life to that of a New York general manager who has an 80-hour workweek.

Children's schedules filled with homework and activities made a lot of townspeople worried, so the town decided to start a movement called “Ridgewood Family Night — Ready, Set, Relax!” The mayor (市長) made a public statement, calling for a town-wide night for families to do nothing. And schools and clubs agreed to support the movement so families could relax and get together.

Some parents like to talk about their childhood, one without so many scheduled after-school activities. As kids, they just went out to play with neighborhood friends after school. However, almost all these parents take their children to their regularly scheduled activities. These fathers and mothers feel it is their duty to make sure their children are prepared to survive in today's high-pressure work environment. They are afraid that their children can't enter the “right” universities and won't succeed in a more and more competitive world.

However, it seems that Family Night worked, at least to a certain degree. Cars moved freely around Ridgewood's normally busy downtown streets. Some families ate supper together for the first time in months. One family watched home movies of when the children were little, baked cookies and played games together.

At first, some people were excited that they could take back their lives. But sadly, few families now believe that one night will change them. Nearly all of the townspeople are sure that they will fall back into the old habit.

1.How can people benefit from Family Night?

A. They can learn and share knowledge.

B. They can rest and enjoy family time.

C. They have more time to discuss family matters.

D. They have enough time to talk about schoolwork.

2.What can we learn about the movement?

A. It is held once a week.

B. It was partly successful.

C. It first started in Manhattan.

D. It needed the mayor's support.

3.How do most Ridgewood people look at Family Night?

A. It won't change their lifestyle.

B. It will help take back their lives.

C. It can't be accepted by the public.

D. It may help break kids' bad habits.
