1.Do the things you don't like(试着去做自己不喜欢做的事)

A farmer and his son, traveling by horse and buggy up a narrow lane, met a motorist going the other way. There was no room to pass for two miles in either direction. The motorist, in hurry, honked his horn.

“If you don't back up,” said the farmer, rolling up his sleeves, “I won't like what I'm going to have to do.” The surprised driver put his car in reverse and backed up two miles, allowing the horse and buggy to go by.

“What was it you wouldn't have liked to have done back there?” asked the farmer's son.

“Back up two miles,” replied the farmer.

“假如你不往后退,”农民撸着袖子说,“我并不喜欢我将要必须去做的事。”司机甚是惊讶,挂了倒挡,退后了2英里,让马车先过去了。

“刚才你说你并不喜欢做的事是什么啊?”农民的儿子问。

“退后2英里。”农民回答。
