我希望大学时就能明白的6件事

青果文志

这两天读一本很简短的书叫做《Steal Like An Artist》,摘录了一些段落,还挺多共鸣的,总结下来也差不多是这几年来我学习到的最多的几个东西。列举如下:

1. 别把上过大学就当成受了教育,把空余的时间多用来读书

School is one thing, education is another. The two don’t always overlap. Whether you are in school or not, it’s always your job to get yourself an education. 

Always be reading, go to library, there’s magic in being surrounded by books. Get lost in the stacks. Read bibliographies. It’s not the book you start with, it’s the book that book leads you to. 

大学和教育是两码事,可惜我们的教育让大多数人在大学结束后学习的过程就停止了,从某个高度上来说,学习是一种人生态度,是一辈子的事情。我觉得最简单的改变就是让你的思想吸纳精华,上千年来人类思维的精华都浓缩在书里,学习如何去阅读,大量阅读,当你有时间无所事事的时候,读书;把手机里的游戏卸载了,读书;等人等车排队坐地铁的时候,读书;这在我看来比什么都重要。

我相信学习的力量,当你迷茫的时候,不知所措的时候,把精力直接放在学一些新东西,读一本好书上。

2. 旅行,去看世界

Your brain gets too comfortable in your everyday surroundings. You need to make it uncomfortable. You need to spend some time in another land, among people that do things differently than you. Travel makes the world look new, and when the world looks new, our brains work harder. 

In the meantime, if you are not into the world you live in, you can build your own world around you. 

无需多言,你只需要踏出第一步。如果你对周遭不满意,想办法创造一个适合你的环境。

现在对这个话题没有那么大兴趣了,主要觉得旅行给你建立的实际上是一个思维模式和看世界的角度,你有了这套武器你的人生有趣程度会直线上升,这样即便在一个你熟悉的城市落地申根,旅行带给你的触角还是会让你的每一天都不一样。

3. 我们只有在试错的过程中才能发现对的

In my experience, it’s the act of making things and doing our work that we figure out who we are. 

What are shaped and fashioned by what we love. -Goethe

去冒险,去体验,去尝试,别相信任何人告诉你的职业生涯规划,如果你想要一个丰富多彩的人生,唯一的办法就是让它大起大落,折腾不惜,虽然有时让你看起来很落魄,但结果往往你会更快乐,也更成功。

4. 学习创业家的精神,努力做事,乐于分享

Do good work and share with people, it’s a two step process, step one, "do good work" is incredibly hard. There are no shortcut. Make stuff every day. Know you’re going to suck for a while. Fail. Get better. Step two, "share it with people", was really hard until about ten years ago or so. Now it’s very simple: put your stuff on the Internet. 

Draw the art you want to see, start the business you want to run, play the music you want to hear, write the book you want to read, build the products you want to use, do the work you want to see done. 

You have to dress for the job you want, not the job you have, and you have to start doing the work you want to be doing.

5. 学习理财

Most of the people I know hate to think about money, do yourself a favor: learn about money as soon as you can.

6. 辞职需谨慎,明白自由职业并没有想像中那么好

A day job gives you money, a connection to the world, and a routine, freedom from financial stress also means freedom in your art. 
   
The worst thing a day job does is take time away from you, but it makes up for that by giving you a daily routine in which you can schedule a regular time for your creative pursuits. Establishing and keeping a routine can be even more important than having a lot of time.
