好奇心像是顯微鏡,可以把日常生活中平淡無趣的事物,用不同的維度重新檢視。

3-2-1: Childlike wonder, motivation, and a strategy for generosity

來源:​https://jamesclear.com/3-2-1/august-11-2022


3 Ideas From Me

I.
"Deconstruction creates knowledge. Recombination creates value."

拆解(破壞)產出知識,重構(組合)產生價值。

很有道理的一句話,要學知識就要把一個主題拆解成各個知識點,逐一攻破。

學到的知識,最終需要彙總,也就是融會貫通,並與實際應用場景組合,才能產出價值。


​II.
"Children are joyful and treat each day as a miracle—in part because they are continually surprised.

Each day, they hear a new word or listen to a new song or learn about a new animal. It's their first time visiting that restaurant or jumping in that pool or riding that rollercoaster. The world is continually unfolding before them.

How can you introduce more surprise into your life as an adult? How can you renew your sense of childlike wonder?"

小的時候對大多數的事物都覺得新奇,等到越來越大,新奇感消失了。

看看自己或周遭朋友的小孩,是不是常說好無聊,尤其是沒有手機玩的時候。反觀我小時候,就算沒電視看,也會四處遊玩,打彈珠、溪邊玩水、自己做玩具....從不覺得無聊。

感到無聊,很大的原因是,大腦待機了! 之前讀過一篇文章說道:“神經細胞對於訊號強度更為變化敏感”。入鮑魚之室而不聞其臭,就是這個道理,當接收到的訊號穩定沒有變化的時候,大腦就會bypass那個訊號,進入待機(自動運轉)模式,大腦沒有收到新刺激,就,無聊了!

因為手機、網路的便利,現代小孩接收到訊息已經是二十年前高中生才能接觸到的資訊,因此外界訊息的波動程度相較手機(遊戲或資訊)都不顯著,因此只要沒手機,大腦就閒的發慌。

保持好奇心與觀察,在平凡的事物中總能發現讓人驚豔的細節。

III.
"In the beginning, your skills are raw, your knowledge is sparse, and you lack experience. At best, you will be able to produce work that is "just okay." And even then, you'll only manage to reach "just okay" by giving your best effort.

Nobody wants to produce something that is "just okay." You'll feel like it's beneath your standards. You'll worry about what others think of you. You'll wonder whether you would be better off taking a different path. But it is impossible to reach that stage unless you are willing to work through your current stage.

And so, one of the main obstacles between who you are and who you could be is courage. The courage to keep trying even if you're not yet as good as you hope. The courage to keep trying despite your fears of what others may think. The courage to keep trying without knowing how the future will unfold.

Your great work is on the other side of your early work. The only way to be exceptional later on is to have the courage to be "just okay" right now. This is how it is for everyone."

沒有人一出生就會跑,總是需要經過跌跌撞撞的過程。初始的你,現在回頭看都會覺得拙,但沒有曾經的拙,那來現在的卓(越)

一開始不要講究perfect,因為perfect的太遠,先從just ok,慢慢精進到ok,然後better, fine, well done, excellent,一步一步過關的打怪,最後就可以perfect🤩

不要在意初始的拙樣,不怕犯錯,不怕問出蠢問題,就可以持續成長。

2 Quotes From Others

I.
Insurance executive and entrepreneur Art Williams on motivation:
"Almost everybody can stay excited for 2 or 3 months. A few people can stay excited for 2 or 3 years. But a winner will stay excited for 30 years or however long it takes to win."

Source: "Just Do It"

短暫的熱情是激情,持久的熱情才是真熱情。

公司內可以看到兩種老人,一種是不得不的老人,另一種是不能不的老人。兩種人,在初入職場的時候,肯定也曾有過他的熱情。

不得不的老人,在過程中消磨了激情,也消磨了意志,最終不得不繼續於公司內待著,等待退休,Work to Earn。

不能不的老人,則是過程中由短暫的激情中,找到了可以持續內心激動的方法或路徑,因此儘管人老了的,心依然年輕,那種就是不能不做事的人,工作是種成就與享受的來源。

我希望能成為後者!


​II.
Journalist and writer Oliver Burkeman shares a strategy for generosity he learned from meditation teacher Joseph Goldstein:
"Whenever a generous impulse arises in your mind – to give money, check in on a friend, send an email praising someone's work – act on the impulse right away, rather than putting it off until later.

When we fail to act on such urges, it's rarely out of mean-spiritedness, or because we have second thoughts about whether the prospective recipient deserves it. More often, it's because of some attitude stemming from our efforts to feel in control of our time. We tell ourselves we'll turn to it when our urgent work is out of the way, or when we have enough spare time to do it really well; or that we ought first to spend a bit longer researching the best recipients for our charitable donations before making any, et cetera.

But the only donations that count are the ones you actually get around to making. And while your colleague might appreciate a nicely worded message of praise more than a hastily worded one, the latter is vastly preferable to what's truly most likely to happen if you put it off, which is that you'll never get around to sending that message."

想到的時候,就要盡快做到。

想要慷慨的時候,例如捐錢、聯絡老友、對別人友善,就應該直接去做,別想太多利害關係,或是被手邊看似緊急的事給耽擱了,最終什麼都沒做到。
