Facebook的扎克伯格每年都会给自己定一个苛刻的计划。

Facebook’s Zuckerberg sets a strict plan for himself every year.

2010年是学习汉语。

In 2010, it was to learn Mandarin.

2011年是只吃自己杀死的动物。

In 2011, it was to only eat animals which were killed by himself.

2013年是每天和公司以外一位不同的人见面。

In 2013, it was to meet a new person outside Facebook everyday.

2015年是每两周读一本新书。

In 2015, it was to read a new book every two weeks.

无一例外,他全都做到了。

What’s common in all these plans is that he did them all.

而这并非是出于什么超越普通人类的能力,其中的法门仅仅是严格时间管理和自律。

学会规划时间,你的生活才能变好

And it’s not out of some extraordinary ability that he has over the rest human beings. The only trick in it is just merciless time management and self-discipline.

知道了这一点,也就不奇怪他为何能在如此年轻的年纪就建起这样规模的公司了。

Once you know this, you understand that it’s all just natural for him to have built such a giant company in such an young age.

大多数情况下,我们发明新东西是为了让生活更轻松。

Most of times we invent new things to make our life easier.

比如,我们今天用的那些购物APP和资讯APP。

For example all the shopping APPs and news APPs that we use today.

但是,这些发明却通常变成了陷阱。

But usually those inventions develop into traps.

我们变得沉迷其中,然后将越来越多的时间花在里面。

We get addicted to them and spend more and more time in them.

我们本以为它们会让我们更加幸福。

We thought they were going to make us happier.

但它们没有。

But they didn't.

它们给我们的生活带来了更多的焦虑。

They brought more anxiety into our life. Much more.

有些人因此变得厌恶发展,并提议我们摒弃所有的现代技术。

Some people grow tired of development because of this and propose that we abandon all technologies.

但是,这其实并不是科技发展的错啊。

However, this is not development's fault.

出错的是我们作为人类的天性。

What's wrong is our human nature.

我们天生就容易对自己以及自己的时间失去控制。

We tend to lose control of ourselves and our time.

正因为如此,管理时间才显得这么重要。

And that is why time management is so important.

单单这一点,就把普通人和杰出的人区分开了。

This ability alone is enough to distinguish those who are extraordinary from the others.

而管理时间最主要的一点,便是自律。

And the very core of time management is self-discipline.

心理学家们曾经总结过:

Psychologists have concluded that:

自律的前期是兴奋的。

The early stage of self-discipline is exciting.

自律的中期是痛苦的。

The middle stage is painful.

而自律的后期是享受的。

But the final stage is blissful.

这就像国内现在流行的一句话:

This is just like a popular saying here in China:

今天很痛苦,明天更痛苦,而后天很美好;但绝大多数人会在明天晚上放弃。

Today is torturous. Tomorrow is worse. The day after tomorrow is wonderful. But most people will give up tomorrow night.

自律也是一样,大部分人都只坚持到了中期,结果以为痛苦就是自律的本质。

Self-discipline is the same. Most people only make it to the middle stage and think that torture is all you can find in it.

但其实,当你成功进入自律的后期,你体验到的是心灵上前所未有的自由。

But the truth is once you enter the final stage you’ll feel a kind of mental freedom that you’ve never felt before.

要挺过自律的中期,并不算容易。

However, it’s not easy to make it through the middle stage.

但也并不算难,只是,绝大多数人把努力的方向搞错了。

But it’s not that difficult, either. It’s just that too many of us have been making effort on the wrong direction.

真正的自律,那种有用的自律,需要的并不是毅力,而是方法。

The real self-discipline, the kind that is practical, requires method, not persistence.

就像真正的职场高手倚仗的并不是每一个动作的速度,而是优化流程、整合资源的能力。

It’s just like that someone who is doing really successfully in his career does not rely on the speed he finishes every move but on the ability to optimize procedures and to integrate resources.

一个人每时每刻能做的事情是有限的。

What you can do in any given time is finite.

一次只完成一个具体的目标,才不会消耗不必要的意志力;将每一个小目标都分配好相应的时间段,你才可能在宏观的层面上管理自己的时间。

Only by taking one step at a time can you ensure that you don’t consume too much unnecessary willpower. Only by allocate appropriate time for every little goal can you manage your own time in the greater picture.

“这件事我今天做”不叫计划,“这件事我今天早上9:00到10:00做完”才是计划。

“I’m gonna do this today.” is not a plan. “I’m gonna finish this between 9:00 and 10:00 today.” is.

“我要减肥”也不叫计划,“从现在开始的3个月内,我每天吃2个鸡蛋,不吃油炸食品,只喝无糖奶茶”才是计划。

“I’m gonna lose some weight.” is not a plan. “From now on I’ll eat 2 eggs, no fried food and only drink bubble tea if it’s without sugar for 3 months.” is.

只有当你的计划足够具体,你才可能去实现它们。

Only by making your plan explicit enough can you carry them out.

只有当你的生活足够具体,你才能真的过得好。

Only by making your life explicit enough can you really enjoy it.
