A millionaire in New York suffered from a severe eye disease. He got a famous doctor to treat his eye. The doctor performed a minor operation on the millionaire, gave him some medicine and advised him to avoid bright light for one month so as to add to the treatment and ensure speedy re­covery. On arriving home, the millionaire immediately acted on the doctor's advice. He closed all his windows,replaced the colorful curtains with dark heavy ones,removed his bright ceiling lights and used dim bulbs. In a word,he went to great lengths to make his house completely dark. Two weeks later, the doctor paid a visit to the millionaire to enquire about his recovery. To the doctor' s astonishment, everything in the house was made dark and dull. "Just look at ail this," said the millionaire proudly. Not the lowest beam of light inside. I spent $5,000 on the changes to the house. I followed your advice faithfully." "You sure did," replied the doctor, but he found it hard to say that it was a matter of plain common sense that the millionaire could have bought a pair of sunglasses,which would cost much less, rather than spending so much money making the house darker, in order to avoid bright light.

参考答案:  A millionaire had a severe eye disease, and his doctor suggested that he should avoid bright light. Therefore, he spent $5,000 to make his house completely dark instead of buying a pair of sunglasses to solve the problem.

    After we read the story, we may think how stupid the millionaire is. But as far”I'm concerned. we are often the millionaire in our daily life. We often choose a complicated way to overcome the problems we come across in our study and work instead of a more effective and energy-saving way. As the old say ing goes "Work smart, not hard.’.we should learn how to work smart

    In other words, when we come to some problems in life, we should calm down and think carefully to find a more convenient solution before we take action
