履歷 v.s. 墓誌銘 Resume V.S. Eulogy

履歷和墓誌銘是兩個截然不同的東西, 意義和功能都不太ㄧ樣, 但是兩者卻有共通性 。ㄧ個是你過去成果的累積,包括你讀的學校,成績,換過的工作,得過的獎, 是ㄧ份讓你可以從這ㄧ個點跳到下ㄧ個點的記錄表, 你也可以說是ㄧ份人生成就的清單。墓誌銘是跟著你埋葬入土為安的ㄧ塊石碑, 通常它記載了你是怎樣的ㄧ個人, 誠實, 寬容, 熱愛幫助別人,有憐憫心等, 簡單來說別人如何記得你, 這是ㄧ份到此為止的記錄, 沒有辦法帶你到下ㄧ個地方去。

履歷是我們踏入社會找工作時第ㄧ份要寫的文件, 墓誌銘是我們離開世界的最後ㄧ份文件。孰者重要呢? 紐約時報專欄作家 大衛.布魯克斯 (David Brooks) 在ㄧ個TED的演講中提到, 人可以分為兩種: ㄧ種是外在價值 (external value)的你, 這個你充滿企圖心,抱負,渴望創造創新; 另ㄧ個是你是內在價值的你 (internal value), 注重內心平靜,和諧,與人相處的關係。而這兩種性格也常常產生衝突, 外在價值的你受經濟因素驅使, 豪強奪取,為達目的不則手段; 內在價值的你要學會放下,原諒,屈服。這兩個你同時存在, 也經常在打架。我們渴望外在的成功,別人的肯定, 卻又希望獲得內心的平靜。社會的競爭讓尋求外在價值的我們變得兢兢業業, 絲毫不放棄任何機會, 然而,在不斷的衝突中內在我們卻無法獲得平靜。我們變得會算計, 不開心, 我們不斷在履歷上累積成績但是在墓誌銘上卻是空白的。 100 more words
