3 停止拖延

不要那么刻薄

你的一个决定会产生深远的影响,我不赞成你去大马路大声高呼。如果你是垃圾虫,那么就需要马上停止了,也许不会救命,但能让你不那么惹人厌。停止这一举动吧,你知道该怎么做的。

这是一封细致入微的家书,非常感人,美国前总统奥巴马写给女儿的信亲切、自然、朴实、没有大话、套话,说的全是家常,每一条建议都可以做得到,每一条都有益,行文的语气没有作为父亲或者总统的谆谆教导,从“不在外面吃饭”这类小事,到“这个世界是一个完全由大家分享的世界,你所做的每件事都会影响到别人”这类普世价值观,奥巴马都说得贴切,自然,优美。

6 – Stop Being Lazy

如果你只考虑你自己,那么很快你会发现身边只剩下你自己。停一分钟想想你的行为会给别人带来什么影响吧——你是不是从休息室拿了最后一杯咖啡?再倒满呀!你是不是和别人合租?不要喝光所有的牛奶,这个世界是一个完全由大家分享的世界,你所做的每件事都会影响到别人。

People get offended about the strangest things. Take Kendrick Lamar’s
now-infamous verse on “Control” this summer: he called out a list of a
dozen rappers he thinks he’s better than (and he’s right)。 The
internet went crazy, and rappers all over the industry rushed to their
mics to record a response. The thing is, all K-Dot said is he’s the best
rapper. Everyone took it personally, and that’s exactly what he was
going for. The lesson to learn from this is that not everything is about
you, and if you’re easily upset, someone will use that to their
advantage.

不要听怀恨者的话

7 – Stop Complaining

I don’t feel like procrastinating right now – I’ll do it tomorrow. When
you procrastinate, you remain stagnant. Whatever you’re putting off
doesn’t go away; resolve the problem, and move on. You’ll be much
happier in the long run.

有时候沉默是金——特别在情侣关系里。我都记不清到底多少次因为说错话引发了本可以避免的争端。即使你想说的非常重要,那也闭嘴,自行消化。你可以用行动证明一切,毕竟你自己说话的时候是听不见的。

我们都有麻烦事,有时候总想跟别人倾诉。这可以理解,但要注意你吐槽的频率。我们都喜欢帮助朋友和家人,但如果从那个人身上我只能感知到负能量,那么还是离得越远越好吧,尤其是当他们在反复抱怨同一件事的时候。

生命如此短暂。我们有时候觉得生命怎么也走不完,实际上,你现在活着,过不了多久,就会死去。人生真是转眼一瞬间的事情,很多人到临死前才意识到这一生已经结束。

Stop Wasting Time

12 – Stop Listening to Haters

If you don’t believe in yourself, nobody will。 Success starts in your
mind, and if all you’re doing is putting yourself down and predicting
failure, it’ll become a self-fulfilling prophecy。 Instead of doubting
yourself, think positively。 Not only will you be happier and
more successful, you’ll spread it to everyone around you。

13 – Stop Being Wasteful

Just Stop, and Breathe…

You don’t finish your meals, and away food instead. You leave the faucet
running when you brush your teeth, pouring precious water down the
drain. You drive places you could easily walk, burning gasoline (a
non-renewable resource)。 You are wasteful, and it needs to stop.

We live in a capitalistic society in which everyone’s trying to sell us
something。 Everyone’s looking out for themselves in one way or
another, and you need to do the same。 Stop putting yourself out
because you’re too shy to say no。

Stop Making Promises

4 – Stop Being Mean

Now that you’re done doubting yourself, stop doubting others. You don’t
like when people are critical of you, so stop being critical of others.
Think about how you make other people feel – even if you have good
intentions, people don’t like hearing negativity.

不要再偷懒

15别把每件事太往心里去

Stop Being Selfish

16 – Stop Talking

总是做承诺,总是做不到。每次做承诺都是不禁给自己增添了责任,无论你的出发点有多好,你都不可能完成所有的部分。大部分时候,你的承诺都太过绝对(比如“我发誓我永远爱你”),也只能在绝对环境中才能实现。与其用语言许下承诺,不如在别人需要你的时候出现,然后用行动达到他们的期望吧。

1 停止怀疑自己

停止消极

我们都有麻烦事,有时候总想跟别人倾诉。这可以理解,但要注意你吐槽的频率。我们都喜欢帮助朋友和家人,但如果从那个人身上我只能感知到负能量,那么还是离得越远越好吧,尤其是当他们在反复抱怨同一件事的时候。

停一下,深呼吸吧

在外面吃饭真的非常非常的浪费钱。也许每次对于你而言都是一次犒赏,但每顿都在外面吃反而是花光积蓄的最快方式。至少也去学学怎么做一些自己喜欢的菜:既能省钱,还能让你更健康,还会让其他人眼前一亮。

Stop Being Wasteful

2 – Stop Being Negative

If you only think about yourself, you’ll soon find yourself by
yourself。 Stop for a minute and think about how your actions affect
other people – did you take the last cup of coffee from the break room?
Refill it! Do you live with others? Don’t drink out the milk carton。
We share this world 100% of the time, so every action you take can
affect other people。

Eating out is the biggest waste of money. Every so often it’s nice to
treat yourself, but eating out for every meal is the quickest way to
drain your bank account. Learn how to cook at least a handful of foods
you enjoy: It’ll save you money, keep you healthier, and occasionally
impress people.

我现在不想做,还是留到明天吧。一旦开始拖延,其实你已经停滞不前了。你拖延的事情不会自行解决。解决问题,继续前行吧。从长远角度来说你会更加快乐。

Stop Procrastinating

14– Stop Littering

Stop Eating Out

It’s completely possible to step on someone’s toes without meaning to –
it happens all the time. There’s no need to pile on by purposefully
doing mean things, so make a conscious effort to stop being mean. If
someone wrongs you, let it go. There’s no need to seek vengeance unless
that’s the type of person you want to be.

不要乱扔垃圾

Always under-promise and over-deliver. When you make a promise, you’re
adding responsibility to your plate that, despite all your best
intentions, you may not be able to deliver on. More often than not, your
promise is an absolute (i.e “I promise I’ll always love you”), and
only Sith deal in absolutes. Instead of making a promise with your
words, simply be there when people need you, and exceed their
expectations with your actions.

Stop Being Negative

15 – Stop Taking Everything Personally

Stop Being Lazy

我们所处的社会,每个人都试图告知我们一些事情。每个人都从不同的角度去找寻着自己,你也需要,你要做的就是在合适的时候说不。

停止浪费

虽然之前说过了,但我还想再说一遍:时间是我们拥有的最宝贵的资源,不要把时间浪费在没有意义的事情上面,如果你想探索这个世界的黑暗角落,很好。我也认识一些没有固定工作的一些自由职业者,但我不会以牺牲自己的短期长期目标为代价和他们出去玩乐。

No matter what you want to do in life, there’s always someone around to
tell you why it can’t and won’t work。 I can come up with millions of
reasons Twitter won’t work, and yet it’s one of the most popular social
media sites on the web。 My opinion didn’t stop Twitter’s success any
more than it convinced Kobe Bryant to quit the NBA or Josh Hartnett to
stop acting。 Why would you let someone’s opinion stop you?

唯一一个让我觉得比浪费的人更可恶的就是垃圾虫。垃圾虫最让我厌恶,而且永远多的让你数不清。如果你曾扔过一块口香糖,一张纸、糖果包装、烟蒂,那
么你就是恶心的垃圾虫。你应该感到耻辱。世界上有超过70亿的人——如果每个人都无意识的扔一点垃圾,那么全世界就会变成70亿垃圾场,哪怕没有罪魁祸
首。

5 不要在外吃饭

生命如此短暂。我们有时候觉得生命怎么也走不完,实际上,你现在活着,过不了多久,就会死去。人生真是转眼一瞬间的事情,很多人到临死前才意识到这一生已经结束。

I’ve said it before, and I’ll say it again: time is the most valuable
resource we have. Don’t waste your time on unproductive things. If you
want to explore the world’s dark corners, that’s great. I still
associate with people who have not-so-kosher careers, but I don’t hang
out with those people at the expense of my own short- and long-term
goals.

Life is short。 It may feel like it takes forever sometimes, but the
reality is that you live, and a short time later, you die。 It happens
so quickly, many people don’t even realize they had a life until it’s
already over。

无意踩到别人的情况真的有可能会发生——常常会发生。但没必要去处心积虑的做一些不好的事情,所以要有意识地让自己不要那么刻薄。如果有人对你无理地对待,随他们去好了。没必要去报复,除非你也想成为那一类的人。

唯一一个让我觉得比浪费的人更可恶的就是垃圾虫。垃圾虫最让我厌恶,而且数量比你想的多很多。如果你曾扔过一块口香糖、一张纸、糖果包装、烟蒂,那么你就是恶心的垃圾虫。你应该感到羞愧。世界上有超过70亿的人——如果每个人都“无辜的”扔一点垃圾,那么全世界就会变成70亿垃圾场,而找不到“罪魁祸首”。

懒人真的很招人烦——得像赶驴磨墨一样逼着他们做事情。如果我想跟你看一场电影,却不得不花一个小时说服你起床,那我宁愿一个人去看。给自己动力都不是件容易的事情,就别让朋友和家人浪费宝贵的精力再来给你动力了吧。

Stop Being a Pushover

If you don’t believe in yourself, nobody will. Success starts in your
mind, and if all you’re doing is putting yourself down and predicting
failure, it’ll become a self-fulfilling prophecy. Instead of doubting
yourself, think positively. Not only will you be happier and more
successful, you’ll spread it to everyone around you.

Sometimes it’s best to just STFU –especially in relationships。 I can’t
even count how many times I created an issue that didn’t need to be an
issue simply because I opened my mouth。 Even if what you want to say is
important, just shut up and ride it out。 You can say more with your
actions than words, and you can’t listen when you’re talking。

14不要乱扔垃圾

Stop Littering

We live in a capitalistic society in which everyone’s trying to sell us
something. Everyone’s looking out for themselves in one way or another,
and you need to do the same. Stop putting yourself out because you’re
too shy to say no.

The only thing I hate more than wasteful people are litterbugs。
Litterbugs are my least favorite bug, and there are more than you’d
think。 If you’ve ever thrown even one piece of gum, paper, candy
wrapper, cigarette butt, etc on the ground, you’re a disgusting
litterbug, and you should be ashamed of yourself。 There are over 7
billion people in the world– if each person only throws one “innocent”
piece of garbage on the ground, that’s 7 billion pieces of garbage
littering a world in which nobody “did it”。

10 – Stop Making Promises
