过来人分享:父亲分享的30堂人生智慧课(双语)

2016/7/26 来源:网络整理 作者:佚名 字号:


  My father is one of the wisest men I know. Over the past year he has been dispensing bits of wisdom to friends, business partners and family members via his Facebook wall and private Twitter stream. I’d share some of his advice with you today.
  
  我的父亲是我认识的最有智慧的人之一。在过去的一年里,他通过Facebook留言板和个人推特向朋友、商业伙伴和家人传播点滴智慧。我想要与你们分享一些他的建议。
  
  1. You can’t make choices for other people. Don’t let other people make choices for you.
  
  你不能为他人做选择。也不要让他人为你做选择。
  
  2. There are an unlimited number of ‘Dr. No’ folks that you will encounter in this life. If you have a personal inspiration, idea or goal, don’t let a ‘Dr. No’ deter you! Trust your gut, do the planning and then DO IT!
  
  你会在一生中遇到无数个对你说“不”的家伙。如果你有个人的灵感、想法或目标,不要让那个说“不”的家伙打消你的念头!相信你的胆量,做好计划然后放手去做!
  
  3. Opportunities are often disguised as work, so most people don’t recognize them.
  
  机遇常常伪装成工作,所以大多数人都认不出它们。
  
  4. The Chinese character for the word ‘crisis’ literally means ‘danger and opportunity.’
  
  汉语中,“危机”的字面意思是“危险和机遇”。
  
  5. Nothing is particularly hard if you divide it into small pieces. -Henry Ford - Same concept configured as a question: How do you eat an elephant? Answer: One bite at a time.
  
  如果你把事情分成很多小份,那么没有什么事情是特别困难的——亨利?6?1福特。有一个问题也表达了同样的观念:你怎么吃掉一只大象?答案:一次咬一口。
  
  6. Learn from the past, but don’t dwell in the past. In other words, don’t abuse the precious ‘now’ by not being in it.
  
  从过去中学习,但是不要停留在过去。换言之,不要沉溺于过去而毁掉珍贵的“当下”。
  
  7. Worry is a misuse of the imagination.
  
  烦恼是在糟蹋你的想象力。
  
  8. Perfect is the enemy of good.
  
  完美是良好的敌人。
  
  9. Education and knowledge are invaluable. But do we need to know everything? Is it possible in a specialized world to know everything? For instance, do you need to have a comprehensive understanding of dentistry to go to a dentist to have a cavity filled? In many instances, ‘not knowing’ is a wise approach – it’s like cleaning out a crowded closet to make space for something useful.
  
  教育和知识是无价的。但是我们有必要知晓一切吗?有可能知晓一个专业领域中的一切吗?例如,你有必要为了去牙科诊所补个牙洞而对牙科学有全面的了解吗?在许多情况下,“不知道”是个明智的方法——这就像是清理一个堆满东西的壁橱来为一些有用的东西腾出空间一样。
  
  10. Big results come when you narrow your focus. Concentrate your efforts on smaller and smaller areas.
  
  当你将焦点缩小时就会有大收获。把你的努力集中在更小的领域中。
  
  11. You can’t do it all yourself.
  
  你无法只凭自己就做成所有的事。
  
  12. Don’t try to impress everyone. Purposely impressing people is an act that brings nothing but a momentary ego boost. Be real with people instead. Connect with fewer people on a level that is deeper and more profound.
  
  不要试图给每个人都留下印象。有目的地给人留下印象只不过是一种带来短暂的自我膨胀的行为。要真实地与人交往。在一种更深厚更长远的层次上与更少的人交往。
  
  13. Short lecture on happiness and contentment: Check out what you do have and be satisfied with it for today. There is an infinite list of what you could want and don’t have. I like Shakespeare’s line in the play Hamlet, when the young prince tells us that “I could be bounded in a nutshell and count myself king of infinite space.” The trick is what one emphasizes. We either make ourselves miserable, or we make ourselves happy. The amount of work is the same.
  
  关于幸福和满足:看看你现今都拥有什么和对什么感到满意。对于你想要但还未得到的东西,你会列出个无限长的清单。我喜欢莎士比亚的戏剧《哈姆雷特》中的一句话,年轻的王子告诉我们“即便是被关在胡桃核里,我也可自命为一个拥有广土的帝王。”这就重点。我们要么让自己痛苦不堪,要么让自己幸福快乐。要做的都是一样的。
  
  14. Manage your time. Your situation and environment is ever changing, so be careful not to confuse things that are urgent with things that are important.
  
  管理你的时间。你的处境和环境随时都在改变,因此要注意不要混淆了紧急的事情和重要的事情。
  
  15. A healthy paradox of life that I find personally challenging: There is ENLIGHTENMENT to be gained from the ability to live in the moment, but if you don’t have a time management system, or an event control system, you are at a significant disadvantage in achieving goals.
  
  对我来说很有挑战性的一个人生悖论:人们需要从活在当下的能力中获得启蒙,但是如果你没有一个时间管理体系,或者事件控制体系,你在达到目标的过程中就会处于一个非常严重的劣势。
  
  16.Keep it simple. There is a world of magnificence hidden in simplicity. Pick the five most important things in your life now and focus on those things. Let the other stuff go. Stop the busyness and really enjoy what’s important to you.
  
  简单化。有很多富丽堂皇都隐藏在简简单单中。现在选出你生活中最重要的五件事情,然后集中精力去做这几件事。将其他的一切抛在脑后。停下忙碌的步伐,真正地享受对你来说重要的事情。
  
  17.Focus on goals, not obstacles.
  
  专注于目标,而非阻碍。
  
  18.There is a major gap between knowledge and taking ACTION. Mistakes and failures are necessary interim steps in the learning process. Stop talking about what you have done or what you are going to do. Just do it and let your actions speak for themselves.
  
  知道和采取行动之间有明显的差距。错误和失败是学习过程中必然会出现的环节。不要再谈论你已经做过的事情和你要去做的事情。只管去做,让行动为事实说话。
  
  19.Sometimes you just have to go for it. Put your uncertainty and fears aside for a second and ask yourself this: “If I try and I don’t get it right the first time, what will I have lost and what will I have gained?” The answer is: You will have lost nothing but a little bit of your time while gaining an important lesson that will help you get it right the second or third time.
  
  有时候你必须去试一下。将你的不确定和担忧暂时放一边,问自己:“如果我尝试了,第一次却未成功,那么我将会失去什么又得到什么呢?”答案是:你只不过失去了自己的一点时间,但是却得到了一次重要的教训,这会帮助你在第二次或第三次的时候做好。
  
  20.Fall down seven times, stand up eight. -Japanese proverb
  
  跌倒七次,第八次的时候站起来。——日本格言
  
  21.Choose a job you love, and you will never have to work a day in your life. –Confucius
  
  知之者不如好之者,好之者不如乐之者。——孔子
  
  22.In order to get, you have to give.
  
  要想索取,必先给予。
  
  23.Not much is worth fighting about. Step back from arguments with your spouse, family members or neighbors. When you feel anger surging up and you want to yell that vulgar remark on tip of your tongue, just close your mouth and walk away. Let yourself calm down. You don’t have to be right or win an argument. It just doesn’t matter.
  
  没有什么值得去争吵。在跟伴侣、家人或邻居吵架的时候退让一步。当你感到怒气上升,想要破口大骂的时候,闭上嘴走开。让自己冷静下来。你没必要非要做得对或者在争吵中获胜。这根本就不重要。
  
  24.Forgiveness is not saying, “What you did to me is okay.” It is saying, “I’m not going to let what you did to me ruin my happiness forever.” Forgiveness is always the answer… let go, find peace, liberate yourself!
  
  宽恕并不是去说,“你对我做的事情没关系。”而是说,“我不打算让你对我所做的事情永远摧毁我的快乐。” 宽恕是永远的答案……放手,寻找宁静,释放自己!
  
  25.If you can’t be with the one you love, love the one you’re with.
  
  如果你不能和你爱的人在一起,那么就爱和你在一起的那个人。
  
  26.People skills – I think the main one: ASKING THE RIGHT QUESTIONS AND LISTENING.
  
  交际能力——我认为主要的一点是:问恰当的问题和倾听。
  
  27.You don’t need an MBA, but take some courses or read some books on finance, economics, financial planning, investments (real estate, stock market), and accounting. Don’t buy stuff you don’t need. Don’t spend more than you make. Don’t let your money manage you.
  
  你不需要去读MBA,但是要参加一些金融、经济、财务规划、投资(房地产、股票市场)、会计方面的课程或者读一些这些方面的书。不要买不需要的东西。不要入不敷出。不要让你的金钱来掌控你。
  
  28.It is your life, your body and mind. Without necessarily getting a Ph.D. in nutrition, increase minimal culinary skills, accumulate some basic nutritional knowledge, and start experimenting immediately with what works for you. Also concentrate on keeping your body active. Escape from confinement in automobiles and office desks and move around.
  
  这就是你的生活,你的身体和头脑。你不一定非要去获得营养学的博士学位,你可以提高最简单的烹饪技巧,积累一些基本的营养知识,立即开始实验一些对你有效的东西。同时也注意保持身体活力。不要太依赖汽车和办公桌,多出去转转。
  
  29.We all make mistakes, have struggles, and even regret things in our past. But you are not your mistakes, you are not your struggles, and you are here NOW with the power to shape your day and your future.
  
  我们都会犯错误、有挣扎,甚至为过去的事情感到后悔。但你并不是错误,也不是挣扎,你现在正拥有力量去塑造你的每一天和未来。
  
  30.Smile! Let everyone know that today you are a lot stronger than you were yesterday… and you will be.
  
  微笑!让每个人都知道今天的你比昨天的你更加强大,而且你将会越来越强。
