It’s 5:00 in the morning when the alarm (闹钟) rings in my ears. I roll out of bed and walk blindly through the dark into the bathroom. I turn on the light and put on my glasses. The house is still as I walk downstairs while my husband and three kids sleep peacefully. Usually I go for a long run, but today I choose my favorite exercise DVD, insanity. Sweat pours down my face and into my eyes. My heart races as I force my body to finish each movement. As I hear the end of the exercise ,I feel extremely tired, but a smile is of my face. It’s a smile because the DVD is over , but a smile of success from pushing my body to its extreme limit.
Some people enjoy shopping, smoking , food, work, or even chocolate. But I need exercise to get through each day. Some shake heads when they see me run through the town. Others get hurt when I refuse to try just one bite of their grandmother’s chocolate cake. They raise their eyebrows, surprised by my “no thank you,” or by my choice to have a salad. Over the years , I have learned it’s okay to just say “no.” I shouldn’t feel sorry for refusing food that I don’t want to eat.
So what drives me to roll out of bed at 5:00 a.m.?What gives me the reason to just say no to ice cream? Commitment. A commitment to change my life with a way that reduces daily anxiety ,increases self –contidence and energy,extends life and and above all improce my body shape.This is the point where a smile appears on my face as I look at myself in the mirror or try on my favorite pair of jeans that now fit just right.It’s through commitmeng and swent that I can make a difference within myself inside and out.

“Expericence may possibly be the best teacher,but it is not a particulary good teacher.”You might think that Winston Churhill or perhaps Mark Twain spoke those wors,but they actually come from James March, a prosefessor at staufor university and a pioneer in the field of organization deeision making.For years March( possibly be wisest philosopher of managerment) has studied how hummns think and act,and he continues to do so in his new book The Ambiguities of Experience.
He begins by reminding us of just how firmly we hava been sticking to the idea of experiential learning :“Experience is respected；experience is sought；erperience is explained.”The problem is that learning from experience involves（涉及）serious complications（复杂化），ones that are part of the nature of experience itself and which March discusses in the body of this book.
In one interesting part of book，for example，he turns a double eye toward the use of stories as the most effective way of experiential learning. He says“The more accurately（精确的）reality is presented，the less understandable the story，and the more understandable the story,the less realistic it is.”
Besides being a broadly knowdledgeable researcher. March is also a poet, and his gift shines though in the depth of views he offers and the simple language he uses. Though the book is short, it is demanding；Don’t pick it up looking for quick, easy lessons. Rather, be ready to think deeply about learning from experience in work and life.

In our study,hight performing companies with strategic speed always made changes when necessary.They became and discussion.They encouraged new ways of thinking.And they allowed time to look and learn.By contrast (相比而言). suffered at firms that moved falt all the among their empleyre ,and had little time thinking about changes.
