每当生活不如意,我们总会告诉自己,
等我有钱了,我会~~~

可时间久了,生活中这些不如意,
这些不得已渐渐侵蚀了我们的每一天。


我们的人生变成了一部“迫不得已”的戏剧。

那么,你有没有想过,

如果可以不考虑金钱,你现在最想做的是什么?




来听听Alan Watts 这段引人思考的演讲。


What if money was no object ?

如果无关金钱?
By Alan Watts


What do you really want to do?
你真正想做的是什么?
人生只有短短几十年, 生存不是生活

如果你正年轻,没有太多的牵挂,
勇敢选择你喜欢的方向吧

Better to have a short life that is full of what you like doing than a long life spent in a miserable way.

如果你已成家立业,

不要忘记偶尔也可以给自己放个假,

往自己梦想的方向迈出一步


You're never too old to have fun

全文:


What do you desire? What makes you itch? What sort of a situation would you like?


Let’s suppose, I do this often in vocational guidance of students, they come to me and say, well, "we’re getting out of college and we have the faintest idea what we want to do". So I always ask the question, "what would you like to do if money were no object? How would you really enjoy spending your life?"

Well, it’s so amazing as a result of our kind of educational system, crowds of students say well, we’d like to be painters, we’d like to be poets, we’d like to be writers, but as everybody knows you can’t earn any money that way.

 Or another person says well, I’d like to live an out-of-doors life and ride horses. I said you want to teach in a riding school? Let’s go through with it. What do you want to do?

When we finally got down to something, which the individual says he really wants to do, I will say to him, you do that and forget the money, because, if you say that getting the money is the most important thing, you will spend your life completely wasting your time. 


You’ll be doing things you don’t like doing in order to go on living, that is to go on doing things you don’t like doing, which is stupid. 


Better to have a short life that is full of what you like doing than a long life spent in a miserable way.


And after all, if you do really like what you’re doing, it doesn’t matter what it is, you can eventually turn it – you could eventually become a master of it. 


It’s the only way to become a master of something, to be really with it. And then you’ll be able to get a good fee for whatever it is. So don’t worry too much. 

That’s everybody is – somebody is interested in everything, anything you can be interested in, you will find others will. 


But it’s absolutely stupid to spend your time doing things you don’t like, in order to go on spending things you don’t like, doing things you don’t like and to teach our children to follow in the same track.

See what we are doing, is we’re bringing up children and educating to live the same sort of lifes we are living. 


In order that they may justify themselves and find satisfaction in life by bringing up their children to bring up their children to do the same thing, so it’s all retch, and no vomit it never gets there.

And so, therefore, 

it’s so important to consider this question: 

What do I desire?
