To Walk A Path That Cannot Be Tread Easily: Part 2

The past two months have flown by so quickly that it’s hard to make any sense of it. It never used to be like this. Time would always come to a standstill as a child, playing with the neighbour’s children or waiting for the school bell to ring. Cherished memories captured in brief moments ofContinue reading “To Walk A Path That Cannot Be Tread Easily: Part 2”

Compromise and Acceptance- Be realistic about your life

The most interesting question I’ve come across in my career as a world top 50 university professor was asked by a university freshman (first-year student). At the end of my lecture, he approached me and asked me: “Which job in the aviation industry has the highest pay?” Hmmm… I was surprised! Then I told theContinue reading “Compromise and Acceptance- Be realistic about your life”

何時停止漂來漂去的生活和事業(二)你為何漂流?

如果你認識我的話,你可能會知道我喜歡鐵人三項運動。我每個週末都會在美麗的曼利海灘(Manly Beach)進行海洋游泳訓練。我很高興能在滿是美麗的魚和海洋生物的海灘保護區游泳。如果你以前曾經在開放的海域浮潛或者潛水,你會知道這活動最大的危險不是鯊魚,而是洋流(當然啦,鯊魚也很危險,不過你被咬到的機會比中樂透還低!)。到了夏天,我會帶孩子去浮潛,孩子們非常的歡喜。但是如果你不注意洋流的話,就會發現自己很容易迷失方向,或是在浮出水面的時候才發現自己早己遠遠離開自己的船。這就是漂流。 為什麼有的人會在人生中漂流? 有些人認為計劃生活及人生是毫無意義的,因為人生很少會按照自己的計劃和預測去進行。因此,有些人在生活中出現什麼,就接受什麼。他們叫它:「隨緣」,或者是:「隨遇而安」、「隨波逐流」。這其實就是典型的人生漂流的例子,也是最不好的一種。 有些人漂流是因為他們不知道自己喜歡什麼,所以他們就選擇了一個自己可以勝任又能賺到錢的工作。他們不見得喜歡或熱愛這個工作,可是這個工作可以得到一份薪水,維持家計。於是,人生就這麼一直過了下去,不時也要感慨人生的不公平⋯⋯這是第二糟糕的情況。 有些人明明知道自己在人生及事業中漂流,但是不知道如何停止漂流。所以他們拼全力讓自己穩定下來:找一個穩定的工作,接受現況,以為他們的人生就是如此。儘管這種人還在漂流,但是這種“漂流”比前兩種好一點,因為他們知道他們必須改變。 假如你正在人生及事業中漂流的話,你最須要作的事情就是“浮出水面”,看看你自己漂到了什麼地方。 有的人漂流了好多年,卻全然不知,因為他們從來沒有“浮出水面”過。如果你突然間發現自己在事業和生活中漂浮不定,不知道未來的方向,不善歡現在的工作,也不滿意現在的人生,可是生活還是要過下去,帳單還是要付,那麼浮出水面對你而言將是一個全新的開始! 好好看一看自己和自己過去的漂流,也許你會發現自己到底想要什麼。你還有夢想尚未完成或者根本没開始過?還是,你想要作自己喜歡的工作,而不是為了一份薪水工作下去?還是,家庭的使命讓你不能作自己? 人生只有一次,你不能就這樣漂流下去。没有人的成功是靠「隨波逐流」而來的,這是不爭的事實。 在接下來的博文中,我將告訴你如何停止人生及事業的漂流,並且有目標地改變自己的人生。不管你現在的年齡,改變永遠不嫌晚。你的人生及事業還是充滿了機會及希望。讓我們一起加油。 Dr. C.
