人生的“十大遗憾”和“十大胜利”

2018年6月6日 没有评论

开始读(听)Robin Sharma: The Leader Who Had No Title。

里面有段故事,关于两个空墓穴里发现的两块刻字版,分别关于“十大遗憾”和“十大胜利”。关于人生阶段到最后时刻,对于存在的反思。参照来看也可以反推人生规划。摘录如下:

10 Human Regrets

  1. You reach your last day with the brilliant song that your life was meant to sing still silent within you.
  2. You reach your last day without ever having experienced the natural power that inhabits you to do great work and achieve great things.
  3. You reach your last day realising that you never inspired anyone else by the example you set.
  4. You reach your last day full of pain at the realisation that you never took any bold risks and so you never received any bright rewards.
  5. You reach your last day understanding that you missed the opportunity to catch a glimpse of mastery because you bought into the lie that you had to be resigned to mediocrity.
  6. You reach your last day and feel heartbroken that you never learned the skill of transforming adversity into victory and lead into gold.
  7. You reach your last day regretting that you forgot that work is about being radically helpful to others rather than being helpful only to yourself.
  8. You reach your last day with the awareness that you ended up living the life that society trained you to want versus leading the life you truly wanted to have.
  9. You reach your last day and awaken to the fact that you never realised your absolute best nor touched the special genius that you were built to become.
  10. You reach your last day and discover you could have been a leaders and left this world so much better than you found it. But you refused to accept this mission because you were just too scared. And wasted a life.

10 Human Victories

  1. You reach your end full of happiness and fulfillment on realising that you are all used up – having spent the fullness of your talents, the biggest of your resources, and best of your potential doing great work and leading a rare-air life.
  2. You reach your end knowing that you played at a standard of concentrated excellence and held yourself to the most impeccable standards in each thing you did.
  3. You reach your end in noisy celebration for having the boldness of spirit to have regularly confronted your largest fears and realised your highest visions.
  4. You reach your end and recognise that you became a person who build people up versus one who tore people down.
  5. You reach your end with the understanding that while your journey may have not always been a smooth one, whenever you got knocked down you instantly got back up – and at all times, never suffered from any loss optimism.
  6. You reach your end and bask in the staggering glory of your phenomenal achievements along with the rich value you have contributed to the lives of the people you were lucky to serve.
  7. You reach your end and adore the strong, ethical, inspirational and empathetic person you grew into.
  8. You reach your end and realise that you were a genuine innovator who blazed new trails instead of following old roads.
  9. You reach your end surrounded with teammates who call you a rock star, customers who say you’re a hero, and loved ones who call you a legend.
  10. You reach your end as a true Leader Without a Title, knowing that the great deeds you did will endure long after your death and that your life stands as a model of possibility.

重读木心

2017年1月7日 没有评论

书架上有关木心的书籍。

今年的年度计划之一就是:重读木心。

在读《木心纪念专号》

2016年10月7日 没有评论

上个周末,发现书架上一本书,去年年初从国内带来澳洲的,到现在还是带着外包装的塑料纸。书名是《木心纪念专号》,同事还买回来的《文学回忆录》倒是早早读完了。拆开塑封,开始读了起来。这本书封面如下。

muxin_book

这本书读起来,感触很深,读起来很慢很慢,和往常的阅读习惯不同。

搜搜自己的博客文章,发现原来在2009年就读过不少木心的书(如下图)。2009年于我是非常忙碌的一年,博士刚毕业,老大才出生,正在寻找未来的职业方向,很多不确定性,但是2009年的阅读,被木心和Susan Sontag包围。当时还一直期待读到更多的木心的文字。

muxin_2009

初读到木心文字时候的惊诧,到现在依然记忆犹新。汉语被木心如此使用,实在难以想象在当时还能存在这样的作家。当然木心不仅仅是个作家。现在很想知道的是,在木心文字的背后,他是一种什么样的经历;尤其在文革监禁阶段,他那样的内心世界。
