I'm going to talk about the simple truth in leadershipin the 21st century. In the 21st century, we need toactually look at -- and what I'm actually going toencourage you to consider today -- is to go back toour school days when we learned how to count. But Ithink it's time for us to think about what we count.Because what we actually count truly counts.

我要讲述的是在21世纪中关于领导力的一个简单的道理。在21世纪,实际上我们需要看重的--也是我今天鼓励你们考虑的--回到我们上学的日子,在那时我们学习了如何算数。但实际上我认为,是时候考虑下我们要算些什么。因为那些我们被我们算的东西才是真正有价值的。

Let me start by telling you a little story. This is Van Quach. She came to this country in 1986from Vietnam. She changed her name to Vivian because she wanted to fit in here in America.Her first job was at an inner-city motel in San Francisco as a maid. I happened to buy thatmotel about three months after Vivian started working there. So Vivian and I have been workingtogether for 23 years.

先让我给你们讲一个小故事吧。这是温.果奇。她在1986年从越南来到美国。她改了个新名字,薇薇安因为这样她想更好地融入美国社会。她的第一份工作是在三藩市市中心的一个汽车旅馆当女佣。在薇薇安在那儿工作了大约三个月后,我恰巧买下了那个汽车旅馆。也就是说实际上,我和她一起工作了23年之久。

With the youthful idealism of a 26-year-old, in 1987, I started my company and I called it Joiede Vivre, a very impractical name, because I actually was looking to create joy of life. And thisfirst hotel that I bought, motel, was a pay-by-the-hour, no-tell motel in the inner-city of SanFrancisco. As I spent time with Vivian, I saw that she had sort of a joie de vivre in how she didher work. It made me question and curious: How could someone actually find joy in cleaningtoilets for a living? So I spent time with Vivian, and I saw that she didn't find joy in cleaningtoilets. Her job, her goal and her calling was not to become the world's greatest toilet scrubber.

我26岁,正是年轻、充满理想主义情怀的时候1987年,我创办了我的第一间公司,取名为joiedevivre(法语:生活的乐趣),一个花哨但并不实用的名字,因为我的本意是想去创造生活的乐趣。我买下的第一个酒店,是个汽车旅馆,是一个计时付费的,人人都愿意住宿的旅馆。坐落在三藩市的市中心。在我和薇薇安交往的过程中我发现她总能从她的工作中找到生活的乐趣。这使我很好奇并且困惑:一个人怎么能在清洁厕所这种工作中找到乐趣呢?因此我与薇薇安呆在一起,后来我发现她并不是在清洁厕所时找到乐趣。她所追求的目标和价值并不是成为这世界上最成功的厕所刷洗工。
