My third story is about death.
我的第三个故事与死亡有关。
When I was 17, I read a quote that went somethinglike: "If you live each day as if it was your last,someday you'll most certainly be right." It made animpression on me, and since then, for the past 33years, I've looked in the mirror every morning andasked myself: "If today were the last day of my life,would I want to do what I am about to do today?" Andwhenever the answer has been "No" for too manydays in a row, I know I need to change something
17岁那年,我读到过这样一段话:“如果把每一天都当作是生命中的最后一天,总有一天你会如愿以偿。”我记住了这句话,从那时起,33年过去了,我每天早晨都对着镜子问自己:“假如今天是生命中的最后一天,我还会去做今天要做的事情吗?”如果一连许多天我的回答都是“不”,我知道自己应该有所改变了。
Remembering that I'll be dead soon is the most important tool I've ever encountered to help memake the big choices in life. Because almost everything —all external expectations, all pride, all fearof embarrassment or failure —these things just fall away in the face of death, leaving only what istruly important. Remembering that you are going to die is the best way I know to avoid the trap ofthinking you have something to lose. You are already naked. There is no reason not to follow yourheart.
让我能够做出人生重大选择的最主要办法是,记住生命随时都有可能结束。因为几乎所有的东西——所有外在的需求、所有尊严、所有对困窘和失败的恐惧——在死亡来临时都将不复存在,只剩下真正重要的东西。记住自己随时都会死去,这是我所知道的防止患得患失的最好方法。你已经一无所有了,还有什么理由不听从自己的心声呢。
About a year ago I was diagnosed with cancer. I had a scan at 7:30 in the morning, and it clearlyshowed a tumor on my pancreas. I didn't even know what a pancreas was. The doctors told methis was almost certainly a type of cancer that is incurable, and that I should expect to live no longerthan three to six months.
大约一年前,我被诊断患了癌症。那天早上七点半,我做了一次扫描检查,结果清楚显示我的胰腺上张了一个瘤子,可那时我连胰腺是什么都不知道呢!医生告诉我,几乎可以确诊这是一种无法治愈的恶性肿瘤,我最多还能活3到6个月。
My doctor advised me to go home and get my affairs in order, which is doctor's code for "prepareto die." It means to try and tell your kids everything you thought you'd have the next 10 years totell them in just a few months. It means to make sure everything is buttoned up so that it will be aseasy as possible for your family. I means to say your goodbyes。
医生建议我回去把一切都安排好,其实这是在暗示“准备后事”。也就是说,把今后十年要跟孩子们说的事情在这几个月内嘱咐完;也就是说,把一切都安排妥当,尽可能不给家人留麻烦;也就是说,去跟大家诀别。
