工作

I’m convinced that the only thing that kept me going was that I loved what I did. You’ve got to find what you love. And that is as true for your work as it is for your lovers. Your work is going to fill a large part of your life, and the only way to be truly satisfied is to do what you believe is great work. And the only way to do great work is to love what you do. If you haven’t found it yet, keep looking. Don’t settle. As with all matters of the heart, you’ll know when you find it. And, like any great relationship, it just gets better and better as the years roll on. So keep looking until you find it. Don’t settle. ― Steve Jobs, 2005 Stanford Commencement Address - 视频 - 优酷视频 - 在线观看”)

可以认为工作是谋生的手段,然而工作远不止是谋生的手段。

如史蒂夫·乔布斯所说,既然工作会占据人生的很大一部分,不如就去做自己热爱的事情,将它做到极致。然而从事热爱的事情并不像说起来那么简单。

如果没有好奇心,就无法发现生活的意义,任何事情都会被认为无趣,也就找不到自己喜欢做的事。正如可悲的犬儒主义者,就算有再多的真善美,透过他们的有色眼镜来看也一文不值。

等到对某件事产生了兴趣,还需要「追随自己内心」的勇气。不要停止独立思考,不要被任何教条束缚,时刻记得为自己而活。就算目前做着其他的工作,只要真心喜欢一件事,也能找到时间和机会去做它。

既然要长时间甚至一辈子从事同一件事,热情同样不可或缺。流于形式而不深入实质的人,不可能找到自己从事它的意义。如果每天都过得一样,那么这就是结局了。

所以,我会牢记永远不要丢失好奇心、勇气和热情,对待任何事情都是如此。
