☆ tackle 立ち向かう
This month is all about “Making it happen” and one thing you’ll need to do if you want to make things happen and get things done is “tackle” tough problems. If you tackle a difficult task or problem, you face it and deal with it in a very determined or efficient way. It doesn’t just have to be a problem at work or home, you can even use this word for other bigger problems. For example, in Australia we often have bushfires and on the news you’ll hear things like “the firemen have been tackling the fire for over 24 hours.”
You might also hear this word when people are talking about sport, if you tackle someone in a game, you try to take the ball away from them, or if it is a game like rugby or American football, then when you tackle someone, you knock them to the ground! So, when you tackle your problems to get things done, basically, you are knocking them to the ground!
