「『求知若渴,虛心若愚』賈伯斯的人生態度」- Steve Jobs's Last and Best Advice


框選或點兩下字幕可以直接查字典喔!

You have to trust in something—your gut, destiny, life, karma, whatever. Because believing that the dots will connect down the road will give you the confidence to follow your heart even when it leads you off the well-worn path, and that will make all the difference. Sometimes life's gonna hit you in the head with a brick. Don't lose faith.
你必須相信某件事--你的直覺、命運、人生、因果報應之類的。因為相信一切在未來終將串連會給你自信去追隨你的心,即使當它將你導離平凡的道路,而那會創造所有不同。有時人生會用磚塊砸你的頭。別失去信念。

I'm convinced that the only thing that kept me going was that I loved what I did. You've got to find what you love, and that is as true for work as it is for your lovers. Your work is gonna fill a large part of your life, and the only way to be truly satisfied is to do what you believe is great work. And the only way to do great work is to love what you do.
我相信讓我走下去的唯一原因是我愛我所做的事。你一定要找出自己所愛,找工作的道理就和找另一半一樣。你的工作會佔據人生很大一部分,要真正感到滿足的唯一方法是做你認為偉大的工作。而要成就偉大工作的唯一方法就是愛你所做。

People say you have to have a lot of passion for what you're doing, and it's totally true. And the reason is...because it's so hard that if you don't, any rational person would give up. It's really hard, and you have to do it over a sustained period of time. So if you don't love it, if you're not having fun doing it, you don't really love it, you're gonna give up. And that's what happens to most people, actually. If you really look at the ones that ended up, you know, being "successful" (unquote) in the eyes of society and the ones that didn't, oftentimes, it's—the ones that were successful loved what they did so they could persevere, when, you know, when it got really tough. And the ones that didn't love it...quit. Because they're sane, right? Who would wanna put up with this stuff if you don't love it? So it's a lot of hard work, and it's a lot of worrying, constantly. And if you don't love it, you're gonna fail. So you gotta love it, you gotta have passion, and I think that's the high-order bit.
人們說你必須對你在做的事有許多熱忱,那完全正確。而原因是...因為那很困難,所以如果你沒有熱忱,任何理性的人都會放棄。工作非常不簡單,而且你得持續做一段時間。所以如果你不愛你在做的事、如果你沒有從中得到樂趣、你並非真心喜愛,你將會放棄。事實上,那就是多數人的情形。如果你看那些最後成為所謂「成功」(註一)的人,在社會和其他沒成功的人眼中成功的人,往往--成功的人熱愛他們的工作,所以他們能堅持下去,在一切變得艱難時還能堅持。而那些不愛自己工作的人...放棄。因為他們頭腦清醒啊,對吧?如果你不愛那玩意的話,誰會想忍受?所以那是許多努力,還有不斷操心。如果你不愛的話,你就會失敗。所以你必須愛它、你必須有熱忱,我認為那是最重要的。

If you haven't found it yet, keep looking. And don't settle. As with all matters of the heart, you'll know when you find it. And like any great relationship, it just gets better and better as the years roll on. For the past 33 years, I've looked in the mirror every morning and asked myself, "If today were the last day of my life, would I wanna do what I am about to do today?" And whenever the answer has been "No" for too many days in a row, I know I need to change something.
如果你還沒找到所愛,繼續找。不要定下來。就像一切和心有關的事物一樣,當你找到時,你會知道的。就像任何美妙的關係一樣,它只會隨時光流轉變得越來越好。過去三十三年來,我每天早晨看著鏡子問自己:「如果今天是我生命的最後一天,我會想做我今天將要做的事嗎?」而每當答案連續太多天是「不」時,我就知道我得做些改變了。

Remembering that you are going to die is the best way I know to avoid the trap of thinking you have something to lose. Your time is limited, so don't waste it living someone else's life. Don't be trapped by dogma, which is living with the results of other people's thinking. Don't let the noise of others' opinions drown out your own inner voice. And most important, have the courage to follow your heart and intuition; they somehow already know what you truly want to become. Everything else is secondary.
記住自己將死去,那是我所知最好的辦法,它能讓你避開「你會失去某樣東西」的陷阱思考。你的時間有限,所以別浪費時間過著他人的生活。不要被教條困住,也就是活在他人的想法。不要讓別人意見的雜音蓋過你自己內心的聲音。最重要的是,擁有追隨你的心和直覺的勇氣;心和直覺不知為何早知道自己真正想成為什麼。其他一切都是次要的。

Stay hungry. Stay foolish.
求知若渴。虛心若愚。

註:原文中的 unquote 表示「強調結束」,此處接在 successful 後,意指此字說完便結束強調的口吻。這種說法並不多見。
