歐巴馬寫給女兒的信:停止在做的17件事(上)



生命如此短暫。
我們有時候覺得生命怎麼也走不完,
實際上,你現在活著,
過不了多久,就會死去。
人生真是轉眼一瞬間的事情,
很多人到臨死前才意識到這一生已經結束。

Life is short. It may feel like it takes forever sometimes, but the reality is that you live, and a short time later,you die. It happens so quickly, many people don't even realize they had a life until it's already over .



1、停止懷疑自己
Stop Doubting Yourself

如果你自己都不相信自己,
那沒人會相信你。
成功源於你的頭腦,
如果你所做的是不斷地看扁自己,
預言著未來的失敗,這就真的會成為現實。
與其懷疑自己,不如積極的考慮問題。
不僅會讓自己更加開心和成功,
你還能夠感染到周圍的人。

If you don't believe in yourself, nobody will. Success starts in your mind, and if all you're doing is putting yourself down and predicting failure, it'll become a self-fulfilling prophecy. Insteadof doubting yourself, think positively. Not only will you be happier and more successful, you'll spread it to everyone around you.



2、停止消極
Stop Being Negative

現在你不要再懷疑自己了,
也別再懷疑身邊的人。
你不希望被人對你挑剔,
那麼也不要再去挑剔身邊的人。
想想你給別人帶來的什麼樣的感受吧
—即使出發點是好的,
別人也不想聽到那麼多消極的事情呀。

Now that you're done doubting yourself,stop doubting others. You don't like when people are critical of you, so stopbeing critical of others. Think about how you make other people feel-even if you have good intentions, people don' t like hearing negativity.



3、停止拖延
Stop Procrastinating

我現在不想做,還是留到明天吧!
一旦開始拖延,其實你已經停滯不前了。
你拖延的事情不會自行解決。
解決問題,繼續前行吧。
從長遠角度來說你會更加快樂。

I don't feel like procrastinating right now– I'll do it tomorrow. When you procrastinate, you remain stagnant. Whateveryou're putting off doesn't go away;resolve the problem, and move on. You'll bemuch happier in the long run.



4、不要那麼刻薄

Stop Being Mean

無意踩到別人地雷的情況,
真的有可能會發生
—常常會發生。
但沒必要去處心積慮地做一些不好的事情,
所以要有意識地讓自己不要那麼刻薄。
如果有人對你無理地對待,
隨他們去好了。
沒必要去報復,
除非你也想成為那一類的人。


It's completely possible to step on someone's toes without meaning to-it happens all the time. There's no need topile on by purposefully doing mean things, so make a conscious effort to stopbeing mean. If someone wrongs you, let it go. There's no need to seek vengeanceunless that's the type of person you want to be.



5、不要在外吃飯
Stop Eating Out

在外面吃飯真的非常非常的浪費錢。
也許每次對於你而言都是一次犒賞,
但每頓都在外面吃反而是花光積蓄的最快方式。
至少也去學學怎麼做一些自己喜歡的菜:
既能省錢,還能讓你更健康,
還會讓其他人眼前一亮。

Eating out is the biggest waste of money.Every so often it's nice to treat yourself, but eating out for every meal isthe quickest way to drain your bank account. Learn how to cook at least ahandful of foods you enjoy:It'll save you money, keep you healthier, andoccasionally impress people.



6、不要再偷懶
Stop Being Lazy

懶人真的很招人煩
—得像趕驢磨磨一樣逼著他們做事情。
如果我想跟你看一場電影,
卻不得不花一個小時說服你起床,
那我寧願一個人去看。
給自己動力都不是件容易的事情,
就別讓朋友和家人浪費寶貴的精力,
再來給你動力了吧。

Lazy people are annoying-it's likepulling teeth getting them to do anything. If I can't do something as simple asgoing to a movie with you without having to factor in an hour of convincing youto get your lazy butt out of bed, I'd rather go alone. People have enoughtrouble motivating themselves;don't make your friends and family waste theirvaluable energy motivating you as well.



7、停止抱怨
Stop Complaining

我們都有麻煩事,有時候總想跟別人傾訴。
這可以理解,但要注意你吐槽的頻率。
我們都喜歡幫助朋友和家人,
但如果從那個人身上我只能感知到負能量,
那麼還是離得越遠越好吧,
尤其是當他們在反覆抱怨同一件事的時候。

We all have problems, and sometimes we needto vent to someone. That's acceptable, but pay attention to how often you'reventing. We all love helping our friends and family, but when all you get fromsomeone is negativity, it's easier to cut them off than help, especially ifthey're always complaining about the same things.



8、別再那麼自私
Stop Being Selfish

如果你只考慮你自己,
那麼很快你會發現身邊只剩下你自己。
停一分鐘想想你的行為,
會給別人帶來什麼影響吧
—你是不是從休息室拿了最後一杯咖啡?
再倒滿呀!你是不是和別人合租?
不要喝光所有的牛奶,
這個世界是一個完全由大家分享的世界,
你所做的每件事都會影響到別人。

If you only think about yourself, you'llsoon find yourself by yourself. Stop for a minute and think about how youractions affect other people-did you take the last cup of coffee from thebreak room?Refill it!Do you live with others?Don't drink out the milkcarton. We share this world 100% of the time, so every action you take canaffect other people.



9、別再浪費時間
Stop Wasting Time

雖然之前說過了,但我還想再說一遍:
時間是我們擁有的最寶貴的資源,
不要把時間浪費在沒有意義的事情上面,
如果你想探索這個世界的黑暗角落,
很好。
我也認識一些沒有固定工作的一些自由職業者,
但我不會以犧牲自己的短期長期目標為代價和他們出去玩樂。


I've said it before, and I'll say it again:time is the most valuable resource we have. Don't waste your time on unproductive things. If you want to explore the world's dark corners, that's great. I still associate with people who have not-so-kosher careers, but I don't hang out with those people at the expense of my own short- and long-term goals.
