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."!


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!
