那些重要却不紧急的事儿 Things that are important but not urgent

2021-06-10 21:33 次浏览
我曾经去过一个边远的山村实践,那里的人们日子过得很苦,连温饱都是问题。我们为此给每一户送去了猪苗,希望他们能通过养猪挣些钱,可没过几天,他们就纷纷把猪苗宰了,吃了顿好的。
I once went to a remote mountain village, where people live very hard, even food and clothing are a problem. We sent pig seedlings to every household in the hope that they could earn some money by raising pigs. But in a few days, they slaughtered pig seedlings one after another and had a good meal.
当时我们对此既惊讶又有些鄙夷,觉得村里的人们目光短浅,只看到眼前的一点蝇头小利却断了发财致富的路。只为了解解当下的馋,却忽视了猪苗未来更大的作用。我们觉得,我们决不会像他们那样傻。
At that time, we were both surprised and contemptuous. We felt that the people in the village were short-sighted. They only saw a small profit in front of them, but they cut off the road to wealth. Just to understand the current greedy, but ignored the greater role of piglets in the future. We feel that we will never be as stupid as they are.
可事实上,这样的错误,我们经常犯。
But in fact, we often make such mistakes.
上学的时候,我们为了应对考试背了许许多多的诗词,可却从不曾真正细细品味字里行间的韵味;我们为了提高成绩而迷信于各种速成班、经验分享会,却又不肯真正踏踏实实地努力。工作的时候,我们忙于不断堆积着的琐事,却抽不出时间做一些真正能提升自己的事情;我们周旋于一场场应酬,却忘记了和一个人交往最基本的真诚。
When we went to school, we recited many poems in order to cope with the exam, but we never really tasted the charm between the lines; In order to improve our performance, we are superstitious in all kinds of accelerated classes and experience sharing meetings, but we are not willing to make real efforts. When we are working, we are busy with the trivial things, but we can't find the time to do something that can really improve ourselves; We go through all kinds of social activities, but we forget the most basic sincerity in dealing with a person.
我们总是最先看到那些明显的东西:一顿美餐、一次分数,一个弹痕;我们总是最先处理那些紧急的事情:一场考试、一次任务,一个应酬。可却总是忽略掉那些真正重要又并不明显的事,譬如读一本书,譬如学一门乐器,譬如脚踏实地而不投机取巧。
We are always the first to see those obvious things: a good meal, a score, a bullet; We are always the first to deal with those urgent things: an exam, a task, a party. But always ignore those really important and not obvious things, such as reading a book, such as learning a musical instrument, such as down-to-earth and not opportunistic.
可是,真正能让生命更加绚烂、更有意义的,却恰恰是这些重要而不紧急的事。
However, it is these important but not urgent things that really make life more colorful and meaningful.
当我回忆起我的童年,我会感激每个午后读《儿童文学》的日子,让我爱上了读书、爱上了写字;我会感激我闲时画的画儿,让我至今仍然能有兴之所向。可是那些在当时看来更要紧的事,比如伙伴间闹的别扭,比如老师给予的表扬,它们却早已渐渐被我淡忘了。
When I recall my childhood, I will appreciate reading children's literature every afternoon, which makes me fall in love with reading and writing; I will be grateful for the paintings I painted in my spare time, so that I am still interested in them. But those things that seemed more important at that time, such as the discord between friends, such as the praise given by teachers, have long been forgotten by me.
当我回忆起我的中学,我会感激一直以来的努力,让我能养成良好的习惯,让我拥有更强的毅力;我会感激我记过的日记,让我在一次次迷惘中变得坚定,也变得稳重。可是那些在当时看来更紧要的事,比如某次测试的成绩,比如某天繁重的作业,却在今天看来早已无关紧要了。
When I recall my middle school, I will appreciate my efforts all the time, let me form good habits, let me have stronger perseverance; I will be grateful for my diary of demerits, which makes me become firm and steady in my confusion. But what seemed more important at that time, such as the results of a certain test, such as the heavy homework of a certain day, seems to be irrelevant today.
我想,再过很久以后,当我回忆起我的大学,回忆起我的工作生涯时,我真正感激的,真正令我受益匪浅的,或许也都是在当时看来并没有那么明显,也并没有那么紧急的事。
I think, after a long time, when I recall my university and my working career, what I really appreciate and what really benefits me a lot may also be that it didn't seem so obvious and urgent at that time.
林清玄说:“生命中有许多非常重要,却一点也不紧急的事”。忽略了这些事,你会失去很多;抓住这些事,你的生命才会足够精彩。
Lin Qingxuan said: "there are many very important things in life, but they are not urgent at all.". If you neglect these things, you will lose a lot; Hold on to these things and your life will be wonderful enough.
