比尔-盖茨的十一条忠告

 

                  比尔-盖茨的十一条忠告

 

 

 

比尔盖茨曾经出席位于加州维萨利亚市蒙特怀特尼高级中学的毕业典礼。在这次典礼上,盖茨给这些高中毕业生提出了十一条忠告。我觉得挺有意思,试着译出来,与年轻的朋友和已经不那么年轻的朋友共享。

 

1.  Life is not fair - get used to it.

生活不见得总是公正的,------ 最好去适应它。

 

 

 2. The world won't care about your self-esteem. The world will expect you to accomplish something BEFORE you feel good about yourself.

世界不在乎你觉得自己如果了不起,而只在乎你的成绩。良好的自我感觉,迟来一点没什么不好。

 

 

 3. You will NOT make 40 thousand dollars a year right outof high school. You won't be a vice president withcar phone, until you earn both.

你不会甫出校门就有高薪,你也不会是公司为你配备周全的副总裁。两者都需要努力去挣来。

 

 

 4.  If you think your teacher is tough, wait till you get a boss. He doesn't have tenure.

如果你觉得你的老师总给你们出难题,等以后你跟职场的老板打打交道试试。老板可没端着铁饭碗!

 

 

5. Flipping burgers is not beneath your dignity. Your grandparents had a different word for burger flipping they called it Opportunity.

煎汉堡并不丢人。你的祖父母在煎汉堡这件事上跟你观点不一样,他们把那看作机会!

 

 

6. If you mess up, it's not your parents' fault, so don't whine about your mistakes, learn from them.

如果你把什么事情搞糟了,别怨你的父母。做错了事之后,别光抱怨,从它们当中学点什么!

 

 

7. Before you were born, your parents weren't as boring as they are now. They got that way from paying your bills, cleaning your clothes and listening to you talk about how cool you are. So before you save the rain forest from the parasites of your parent's generation, try delousing the closet in your own room.

在你出生之前,你的父母并不像现在这般无趣,他们弄成这样是因为忙着付你的帐单儿、洗你的衣服、听你吹嘘你有多了不起。所以,在你拯救被父母这代人破坏的热带雨林之前, 先把你自己的房间整理好吧!

 

 

 8. Your school may have done away with winners and losers, but life has not. In some schools they have abolished failing grades and they'll give you as many times as you want to get the right answer. This doesn't bear the slightest resemblance to ANYTHING in real life.

你们在学校里可能已经决出了胜负,在生活中还言之过早。而且学校会给你很多很多机会修正错误,得出正确结论。而真实的人生却一点儿也不是这么回事。

 

 

 9. Life is not divided into semesters. You don't get summers off and very few employers are interested in helping you find yourself. Do that on your own time.

人生不是学期制,你别指望寒署假。没有哪个雇主有兴趣帮你寻找自我,还是自己抽功夫办这件事吧

 

 

 

10. Television is NOT real life. In real life people actually have to leave the coffee shop and go to jobs.

电视上演的,不是真实的人生。真实的人生是,大伙儿喝完咖啡后,都得去工作!

 

 

11. Be nice to nerds. Chances are you'll end up working for one.

对书呆子好一点,说不定将来哪一天,你得为他们其中的一位工作!
