Thinking about Your Life 考虑生活

时间:2022-3-31 作者:沪江英语学习网

How many times have you heard the expression that most people spend more time planning their vacation than they do planning their lives. I would expand that expression by adding that most people spend more time "thinking" about their vacation than they do thinking about what’s important in their life.

While rest and relaxation are a must in living a balanced life, it’s not what we were created to do. After all, the Master Creator took his RR (Rest and Recreation) on the seventh day, only after six days of "definitely directed thought."

Wallace D. Wattles, wrote "There is no labor from which most people shrink as they do from that of sustained and consecutive thought; it is the hardest work in the world." And yet it is the first and primary labor of achievement.

What is your life’s purpose or your personal mission statement? Is it written down? Do you review it and think about it often? Is your life organized around your purpose and a set of goals that support that purpose?

Without purpose and goals – definitely directed thought – you are like the proverbial "ship without a rudder." There is power in your purpose and in your goals. It is the power that takes you over obstacles, the fuel that propels you toward the life you envision.

你有多少次听到大部分人一直在谈论怎么样度假,而不是规划生活本身。而且,不少人一直在“想着”度假,而不去想日常要紧的事情。

尽管休闲和放松是平衡生活的必需品,然而大家活着并非为了这类,造物主把休息日放在第七天,放在“明确直接的构思”的日子之后。

华莱士·D·沃特尔斯写道:“没任何一种体力劳动能使大部分人畏缩不前,但持久连续地考虑却可以做到这一点;它是这世界上最困难的工作。”却也是为获得成功所做的最重要和基本的劳动。

你的生活目的和生活使命是什么呢?你把它写下来了吗?你是不是重新审视过,常常考虑这件事呢?你的生活都是围绕这个目的进行的吗?你是不是设置一系列小目的来达成这个大目的呢?

缺少志向和目的(明确直接的构思),你就会像谚语中说的“无舵之船”。志向和目的给人以动力,助你克服困难,推进你驶向理想的彼岸。
