My second story is about love and loss.
我的第二个故事是关于好恶与得失。
I was lucky—I found what I loved to do early in life.Woz and I started Apple in my parents' garage when Iwas 20. We worked hard, and in 10 years Apple hadgrown from just the two of us in a garage into a twobillion dollar company with over 4000 employees. We'djust released our finest creation—the Macintosh—ayear earlier, and I had just turned 30. And then I got fired. How can you get fired from a companyyou started? Well, as Apple grew we hired someone who I thought was very talented to run thecompany with me, and for the first year or so things went well. But then our visions of the futurebegan to diverge and eventually we had a falling out. When we did, our Board of Directors sidedwith him. And so at 30, I was out. And very publicly out. What had been the focus of my entire adultlife was gone, and it was devastating.
幸运的是,我在很早的时候就发现自己喜欢做什么。我在20岁的时候和沃兹(苹果公司创始人之一)在我父母的车库里办起了苹果公司。我们干的很卖力,十年后,苹果公司从车库里只有我们两个人的小公司发展成为一个拥有20亿美元资产、4,000余名员工的大企业。那时,我们刚刚推出了我们最好的产品——Macintosh电脑——那是在第9年,我刚满30岁。可接下来,我被解雇了。你怎么会被自己办的公司解雇呢?是这样的,随着苹果公司越做越大,我们聘请了一位我认为非常有才华的人和我一起管理公司。在开始的一年多时间里,一切都很顺利。可是,随后我们两人对公司前景的看法开始出现分歧,最后我们反目了,而董事会站在了他那一边。所以在30岁那年,我离开了公司,而且这件事闹得满城风雨。我失去了成年后的整个生活重心,这使我心力交瘁。
I really didn't know what to do for a few months. I felt that I had let the previous generation ofentrepreneurs down—that I had dropped the baton as it was being passed to me. I met with DavidPackard and Bob Noyce and tried to apologize for screwing up so badly. I was a very public failure,and I even thought about running away from the valley. But something slowly began to dawn onme: I still loved what I did. The turn of events at Apple had not changed that one bit. I had beenrejected, but I was still in love. And so I decided to start over.
一连几个月,我真的不知道该怎么办。我感到自己给老一代的创业者丢脸了——因为我扔掉了交到自己手里的接力棒。我去见了戴维·帕卡德(惠普公司创始人之一)和鲍勃·诺伊斯(英特尔公司创建者之一),想为把事情搞得这么糟糕说声道歉。这次失败弄得沸沸扬扬,我甚至想过逃离硅谷。但是,渐渐地,我开始有了一个想法——我仍然热爱我过去做的一切。在苹果公司发生的这些风波丝毫没有改变这一点。我虽然被拒之门外,但我仍然深爱我的事业。于是,我决定从头开始。
