Don’t be serious, be sincere.

下面这段是Yogita转发给我的,来自一个印度最有名的畅销书作家Chetan Bhagat演讲。今天早上来得比较晚,没怎么工作,所以最大的收获应该是这段文字。

Don’t just have career or academic goals. Set goals to give you a balanced, successful life. I use the word balanced before successful. Balanced means ensuring your health, relationships, mental peace are all in good order.

There is no point of getting a promotion on the day of your breakup. There is no fun in driving a car if your back hurts. Shopping is not enjoyable if your mind is full of tensions.

"Life is one of those races in nursery school where you have to run with a marble in a spoon kept in your mouth(就是嘴里含着汤匙,汤匙里放着圆球的赛跑,比赛的时候球不能掉下来). If the marble falls, there is no point coming first. Same is with life where health and relationships are the marble. Your striving is only worth it if there is harmony in your life. Else, you may achieve the success, but this spark, this feeling of being excited and alive, will start to die.

One thing about nurturing the spark – don’t take life seriously. Life is not meant to be taken seriously, as we are really temporary here. We are like a pre-paid card with limited validity. If we are lucky, we may last another 50 years. And 50 years is just 2,500 weekends. Do we really need to get so worked up?

It’s ok, bunk a few classes, scoring low in couple of papers, goof up a few interviews, take leave from work, fall in love, little fights with your spouse. We are people, not programmed devices.

"Don’t be serious, be sincere."!

周末跟朋友聚会,因为玩游戏的一点小事我搞得有人拂袖而去。虽然也有最近赶论文压力大的原因,但是这只是借口。我知道我有种种“输不起”的心态,凡事搞的很serious,对待任何事,哪怕是不该认真的事,甚至因此牵扯到对人。不能自嘲,之前吴老师说‘自嘲是心里强悍、心胸宽广的表现’,我不仅不善自嘲,还常常愚笨到落下因为找不到台阶下最后要自己逼着自己跳楼摔得断手断脚很惨还不被同情的下场。乐乐说我不适合做生意,xixi让我快长大,你们都是善意的,是朋友才这样跟我说。是我不够大方,对不起!

Life is not meant to be taken seriously, as we are really temporary here. We are like a pre-paid card with limited validity. 谢谢Yogi,在某个无为的午间让我读到如此智慧的文字!

很好很好的文字,我最近也在思考工作和生活的问题…,只是,有些道理虽懂,真正做到却很难。

我说话挺直的,别介意哈。你有做生意的特质的其实。只是,要真想大成功,还需要磨练。挺怕你到时候特别失望,没有你现在意识到的那种潇洒的话。我也在锻炼中,这条路好长啊。人生嘛,就是在戏谑中度过的。我其实没真生气,只是想表明一个态度,其实,我可以忍一忍就过去了,就像前几次。不过,作为朋友,委屈自己,迁就你,是对陌生人或者有利益关系的人用的。我也需要道歉,我还是压不住那种烦不了的劲儿。或许有其他更平和让你明白的方法。
