選擇還是努力比較重要?

前陣子有個朋友問我覺得選擇還是努力比較重要,我們今天就來聊聊這個話題。

在回答這個問題前,我想先討論一下這個問題背後的兩個假設:

  1. 認為需要二選一:這和之前和你分享的受害者心理上的稀缺性思維相同,這個立論似乎認為我們的資源有限,因此需要做一個取捨。然而,我認為選擇和努力都很重要。他們就像喝水和睡覺一樣,都是生命的必須品,少了任一項都不行。
  2. 想要找藉口安慰自己:如果沒有稀缺性思維卻仍然有這個問題,那可能是找藉口的徵兆。對於一個自認為努力的人,如果人生依然過的不好,可能就會推辭說是選擇誤導了自己。另一方面,我有一些非常聰明的朋友,他們知道什麼選擇可以讓自己過得更好,但是他們總是以自己太懶了為藉口。

很顯然這兩個假設都會限制我們的發展,而我的觀點是兩個都很重要。

努力為什麼重要

10,000小時的努力

Malcolm Gladwell在暢銷書Outliers: The Story of Success裡面提出著名的一萬小時理論。這個理論的核心是你只要花一萬個小時專研一個領域,你就能得到不錯的成績。我之前有幸和Gladwell的朋友(紐約客的Editor in Chief)聊到這個理論。我問道:“這ㄧ萬小時並不需要是精湛的練習嗎?”他說原作者的意圖是“the simple task of doing”。另外他解釋道,一萬小時其實並不長,也就是六年左右的時間,而六年正是一般的PhD、Medical Degree的平均時長。

SCD: Fiends of Slaanesh

In my opinion, daemons are the heart and soul of the Chaos faction in the 40K CCG. Chaos marines provide the toughness and die modification, but daemons offer a lot of the punishing reactions that make Chaos such a pain to play against. 369 more words
