经典励志短文

Whether sixty or sixteen, there is in every human being's heart the lure of wonders, the unfailing childlike appetite of what's next and the joy of the game of living. In the center of

your heart and my heart there is a wireless station: so long as it receives messages of beauty, hope, cheer, courage and power from men and from the infinite, so long are you young. 无论是60岁还是16岁,你需要保持永不衰竭的好奇心、永不熄灭的孩提般求知的渴望和追求事业成功的欢乐与热情。在你我的心底,有一座无线电台,它能在多长时间里接收到人间万物传递来的美好、希望、欢乐、鼓舞和力量的信息,你就会年轻多长时间。

An individual human existence should be like a river—small at first, narrowly contained within its banks, and rushing passionately past boulders and over waterfalls. Gradually the river grows wider, the banks recede, the waters flow more quietly, and in the end, without any visible break, they become merged in the sea, and painlessly lose their individual being. 人的生命应当像河流,开始是涓涓细流,受两岸的限制而十分狭窄,尔后奔腾咆哮,翻过危岩,飞越瀑布,河面渐渐开阔,河岸也随之向两边隐去,最后水流平缓,森森无际,汇入大海之中,个人就这样毫无痛苦地消失了。

Youth means a temperamental predominance of courage over timidity,of the appetite for adventure over the love of ease.This often exists in a man of sixty more than a boy of

twenty.Nobody grows old merely by a number of years.We grow old by deserting our ideals. 青春意味着战胜懦弱的那股大丈夫气概和摈弃安逸的那种冒险精神。往往一个60岁的老者比一个20岁的青年更多一点这种劲头。人老不仅仅是岁月流逝所致,更主要的是不思进取的结果。

Years may wrinkle the skin,but to give up enthusiasm wrinkles the soul. Worry, fear, self-distrust bows the heart and turns the spirit back to dust.

光阴可以在颜面上留下印记,而热情之火的熄灭则在心灵上刻下皱纹。烦恼、恐惧、缺乏自信会扭曲人的灵魂,并将青春化为灰烬。

友情和爱情的区别 爱情和友情的界限是什么呢?当然,强烈的爱慕,震憾心弦的感情很容易区别出来。然而,淡淡的,细水长流的爱情与推心置腹、无所不谈的友情往往只差一线。那么怎样来区分呢? Both are so much related to each other. And both are so dissimilar! What are the

differences between friendship and love? Is platonic friendship possible between persons of opposite sex? Let us try and understand.

两者联系是如此密切,两者却又那么截然不同。友情和爱情有什么区别?异性朋友间的理想化的友谊真的存在吗?我们来试着理解下。

What is friendship? Why do we call a person our friend? When do we call someone a very good friend? If we care for a person, if we are always ready to help that person and if we share most of our thoughts with a person, they are our good friends. We can always count upon our good friends in an emergency. We are always sure that our friend will understand why we acted in a certain way. We need not explain anything to our very good friends. The friendship is so deep and the relationship is so intimate, that most of the things are automatically understood by our friends.

什么是友情?为什么我们管一个人叫“朋友”?什么时候我们管一个人叫作“好朋友”?如果我们关心一个人,我们总是准备帮助那个人;如果我们和某个人分享大部分的想法,那个人一定是我们的好朋友。在紧急情况下我们总是依靠好朋友。我们总是确定好友会理解我们行事的方式。我们不需要向亲密的朋友解释什么。友情如此深,关系如此牢,以致于朋友间的事双方都会很自然地理解。

What about love? In a relationship of deep love, all the sharing that we discussed above are taken for granted. But love transcends all this. During love, we are attached with a

particular person, while in friendship, one may have many friends. A loving relationship makes one so much attached to the other, that one gets pained if his/her beloved is hurt! Love also involves a physical element. Friendship does not have that. This is a vital difference. Nature gives us love so that the specie can go forward. Nature does not give us friendship.

什么是爱情?在深爱中,上面我们讨论的事情都是理所当然的。但是爱情远远超过这些。恋爱中,我们总是和某个人关系密切。但是在友情中,一个人可能有很多朋友。恋爱的两个人联系得如此紧密,如果他/她受到了伤害,另一个人也会心痛。爱情总会有身体上的接触。友情却没有。这是至关重要的区别。上苍给予了我们爱情,以使种族延续。但是上苍却没有给我们友情。

Your heart beats will never increase in anticipation of meeting your friend. You will not lie awake at night thinking about your friend. You will not feel totally lost, if you don't meet your friend for a few days. You will not have dreams in your eyes thinking about your friend. But in love, you will do all this and much more. Indeed, there is no comparison between love and friendship.

在盼朋友出现时,你的心跳不会增加;你不会夜不能寐地想着你的朋友;如果几天没见到朋友,你也不会完全迷失;想到朋友时,你的眼中不会有梦想。但是在恋爱中,这一切你都会做而且程度会更深。确实,爱情和友情没有可比性。

人生小感悟 1. Life is a gift, and the more the better.

1. Books

1. 阅读

There are a million books out there about how to “boost ” your career. But here are recent ones I've read that bring a unique perspective to the field. Their goal is to treat your career as if you are a freelancer offering your services. It’s your job to make sure your services are in demand. The rarer and more valuable those services are, the better off you’ll be。

有百万本图书是关于如何“促进”你的职业生涯的。但最近有几本书,我读过后对这一领域有了独特的视角。它们的目的是把你的职业看成是一个提供服务的自由职业者。你的工作是确保服务被需要。你的服务越稀有越有价值,你赚的就会越多。

2. The News

2. 看新闻

Make the news a part of your routine. It’s important that you stay “in the know” about

what ’s happening in the job market, what industries are getting coverage, and what’s “hot ” (and more importantly...what's not)。

让看新闻成为你的日常生活的一部分。重要的是:你要始终知道就业市场上发生了什么,哪些行业被报导了,什么是“热点”(更重要的是„„哪些不热门了) 。

3. Online

3. 网络交流

LinkedIn is a great way to keep in touch with people in your industry and keep track of what they ’re doing and worrying about. If someone you admire tweets about a problem, you have a cool opportunity to help them out. It’s also a great way to study up on a potential new boss/employer。

一个很好的途径是用LinkedIn 和行业里的人保持联系,并“追踪”他们在做的事和担心的事,如果你欣赏的人因为遇到困难发了微博,你就有一个很好的机会协助他们解决难题。这也是一个了解潜在老板/雇主的好方法。

4. At Work

4. 工作上交流

The people you work with today are the people your next job will be calling for references. You don't have to be a fake, just remember that the goal is to get things done and for the entire group to be successful. Be friendly. Be a team player. You can’t do it all by

yourself — and you will have a heck of a time getting anything done if your colleagues don’t like your attitude。

今天你共事的人是你下一份工作的引荐人。你不必弄虚作假,只要记得你的宗旨是把事情做好,整个团队是成功的就可以了。要友好些。成为团队的一员。你不能自己完成所有事——如果同事不喜欢你的态度,你就得花很多时间去做所有的事。

5. Find a Mentor

5. 找一位导师

Mentors are essential in developing your career. We all think we can do it on our own, but that ’s just youthful bravado talking. Find someone you respect and trust that has

experience and try to learn as much as you can from them. It might be your boss or it might be a former boss...you never know。

导师在你职业发展中必不可少。我们都认为靠自己就能做好工作,但那只是年少轻狂的妄想。找那些你尊重信任、且经验丰富的人,从他们身上尽可能多学一些。这些人可能是你的老板,也可能是前任老板.... 。。你也猜不到是谁。

6. Help a Coworker

6. 帮助一位同事

Keep an eye out for someone that has too much on their plate or is obviously frustrated. Then try to help them out. Take on some of their work. Push a deadline back for them. Take them out to coffee to give them a break. Anything. Just let them know you’re there to help. Help your team today, and they will be there to help you down the line。

找出那些有太多事要做或能明显看出受挫的人。然后尽力帮助他们。承担一些他们的工作。把最后期限延迟一些。带他们出去喝咖啡休息。任何事都可以。只要让他们知道你愿意伸出援助之手。今天帮助你的“人脉团队”,明天他们会竭尽所能帮助你。

7. Run a Salary Audit

7. “核实”下你的工资

The goal is to figure out if you’re being paid fairly. Use salary-comparison sites to get a range of where you should be. Be warned — you might find you’re paid fairly (and might be overpaid!) even if you feel you deserve more!

你的目标是弄清楚是否获得了与付出对等的工资。浏览比较薪酬的网站获得你的工资范围。要注意,你可能发现已经得到了对等的工资(也许还多拿了!) ,你也许也会想要获得更高的薪水。

8. Control Your Spending

8. 控制消费

Making more is the best way to boost your finances, but you also have to control how much you spend. It isn’t as hard as you think. Spend less than you make, and get rid of your debt as quickly as you possibly can。

提高经济水平的最好方法是赚更多钱,但你也必须控制消费。这并没有你想得那么难。花得钱比挣得钱少些,并尽快摆脱债务。

9. Work Smarter

9. 更聪明地工作

Before you try to find another job, make sure you’re killing it at your current job. Make life easier for yourself and for others by finding efficiencies, working smarter, and

getting things done. Easier said than done, I know, but when you’re out there interviewing, you want to have concrete examples of how you created value in the past。

在你试图找另一份工作前,请确保你把目前的工作做得无懈可击。为了让自己和他人活得更轻松,要提高效率、更聪明地工作,并把事情做好。我知道说起来容易做起来难,但是当你在新公司面试时,你也希望有具体的事例表明你在过去是如何创造价值的。

10. Be Flexible

10. 灵活

Most people think they are in control of their careers. You pick a field/industry/job, and then you plow ahead, doing your best to go as far as possible. That’s not realistic. Things that interest you will lure you into different areas. Stuff you had no idea will come into play. You’ll get laid off. You’ll get promoted. You’ll switch jobs. Be open to these changes, and don’t shut any doors because they don’t mesh with your “five year plan。” The best course of action is to be ready for anything because the unexpected moves sometimes wind up being the best moves you ever make。

大多数人认为职业生涯在自己的掌控中。你选择了一个领域/行业/职业,然后积极进取,尽全力在职业路上走得更远。但这种想法是不现实的。让你感兴趣的东西会把你引领到不同的领域。你不知道的事情会发生、会被解雇、会得到晋升、会跳槽,放开怀抱接受这些改变吧,不要因为它们不符合你的“五年计划”就拒之门外。最好的办法是乐于接受一切,因为有时意外的举动往往被证明是最好的一步。

11. Have a Sit Down

11. 坐下来好好沟通

Communication is crucial, especially with the person you report to. Whether you get along with your boss or not (in a perfect world you at least respect and trust him or her), you

need to have a clear understanding of what’s expected of you and how you can exceed those expectations. Not sure how to “hit a homerun” for your boss? Ask, and then execute。 沟通是至关重要的,尤其是与你要汇报的对象沟通。无论你和老板相处得好不好(在理想世界里你起码是尊重和信任他/她的) ,你需要了解老板对你的期望以及如何才能超出这个预期。不知道如何完美完成老板交付的任务?直接问,然后执行吧。

12. Pretend You’re the Boss

12. 假如你是老板

I don’t mean put your feet on your desk and start bossing people around. I mean really take the time to imagine yourself in your boss’s shoes. Think about her day-to-day, the people she manages, the boss she has to answer to. All of that...think about it real hard. Sometimes a little empathy goes a long way。

我不是说你把脚放在办公桌上,开始对周围的人呼来唤去。我真正的意思是花时间想象自己身处老板的立场。想想她每天做的事,她管理的下属,她要应付的老板。所有这一切都好好思考下。有时候一点点换位思考会让你明白很多。

13. Help Your Boss

13. 帮助你的老板

We ’re all very busy, but pay close attention to your boss for a week. I mean, really pay attention. What’s bothering him? What’s keeping him up at night? What worries him? Now spend some of your time trying to make his life easier。

我们都很忙,但花一个星期密切关注你的老板。我的意思是,真正重视。什么事困扰着他?什么事让他熬夜?他在担心什么?现在花些时间,试着让老板的生活更轻松。
