(演讲原文节选)


I find that the best results in life are often held back by false constructs and untested assumptions.

 

我发现生命中本能获得的杰出成就,往往被错误的概念和未经测试的假设所拖累。

 

Languages. Material versus method.

 

语言。教材与方法谁更重要?

 

As soon as I focused on this material, I took off. I ended up being able to read Asahi Shinbu, Asahi newspaper, about six months later — so a total of 11 months later — and went from Japanese I to Japanese VI. Ended up doing translation work at age 16 when I returned to the U.S., and have continued to apply this "material over method" approach to close to a dozen languages now. Someone who was terrible at languages, and at any given time, speak, read and write five or six. This brings us to the point, which is, its oftentimes what you do, not how you do it, that is the determining factor. This is the difference between being effective — doing the right things — and being efficient — doing things well whether or not theyre important.

 

当我专注学习这份材料后,我进步飞速。6个月之后,也就是一共11个月之后,我已经能够看懂《朝日新闻》了——从日语1级进步到日语4级。我回到美国后,从16岁就开始从事翻译工作,并不断地使用这种 “材料优于方法”的方式学习了近12种语言。从一个学不好语言的人,到同时说、读、写五六种语言。这告诉我们:往往你做什么,而不是你怎么做,是关键所在。这是有效能(做正确的事情)和有效率(做好事情,不管它们是否重要)之间的区别。

 

So fear is your friend. Fear is an indicator. Sometimes it shows you what you shouldnt do. More often than not it shows you exactly what you should do. And the best results that Ive had in life, the most enjoyable times, have all been from asking a simple question: whats the worst that can happen? Especially with fears you gained when you were a child. Take the analytical frameworks, the capabilities you have, apply them to old fears. Apply them to very big dreams.

 

恐惧是你的朋友。恐惧是一个指标。有时候它告诉你不该做什么但更多时候,它恰恰告诉你该做什么。我生命中获得的最好成就,最美好的时光,都源于问一个简单的问题:“最坏的可能是什么?”尤其是对于你从小时候就有的恐惧。用理性思维,将你的能力运用在克服陈年的恐惧上。借助它们实现伟大的梦想。



How did you overcome your fear?
