Will You Regret This When You're old? 

当你老了会为这些事情后悔吗?
当你老了会后悔这些事吗? - 纳斯达克国际英语 - 纳斯达克英语学校的博客

 There are so many things I want to do in the short time I'm here. Some of these things scare me, some will challenge me and others are just plain fun.
      我想在尽可能短的时间里做更多的事,有些会令我恐惧,有些给我带来挑战,还有些完全只是个笑话。
      Unfortunately, life is very short and the older I get the quicker time seems to pass. I'm quickly realizing that I probably won't fit everything in. So how do I choose? How do I pick which things to go for entrepreneurwholehearted  and what things to leave to someone else?
      可惜,生命是短暂的,年龄会随着时间的流逝而迅速增长,我很快意识到或许我没有时间去做所有想做的事。那么该如何取舍呢?哪些事我该全身心的投入,哪些事该留给其他人去做呢?
      It comes down to a simple question: "When I'm old, will I regret ___?"
      归结起来有个简单的问题就是:“当你老了,你会后悔___?
      The blank could be not doing something or choosing to do one thing over another. It's a simple question and it comes in really handy.
      空白的地方填入你做不到的事或者选择一件最重要的事。这是一个简单的问题,却很难回答。
     Next time you find yourself struggling over whether or not you're going to do something ask yourself that very question: "Will I regret this decision when I'm 80?" If the answer is no then go ahead with your decision. If it's yes think about how you can make it happen or stick it out until you're done.
      下次,无论你是否很努力的去做某件事情之前,先问问你自己“当我80岁时会后悔今天这个决定吗?”如果答案是“不会”,那么你就按照自己的决定去做吧。如果答案是“会”,那么你为什么还要坚持这样做呢?
      Life's too precious to have you get all the way to the end and say "damn I should have done that when I had the chance" or "I really should have let that go" or "I can't believe I didn't take the opportunity when it was presented to me".
      生命是非常保贵的,当生命走到尽头时才对自己说“该死的,当我有机会时为什么没有去做”或者“我真的应该让它成为过去”,又或者“我不能相信,当机会来到我身边时我却没有抓住它。”
      Live your life to your best capability. Here are a few areas that you could try to challenge yourself in. Some of these you may have thought of yourself, some of these will be new but what I hope is that it gives you a push to do more and be more with the life you have left.
      尽你最大的能力去生活,有些方面你也可以挑战自己。有些是你思考过的,有些是刚遇到的,当你偏离生活时,我希望它们能带给你更多的帮助。
1. Work 工作
      Have you ever changed jobs? Have you thought about changing jobs? How about your career? The possibilities are endless when it comes to how you make a living. Maybe you've toyed with the idea of becoming an entrepreneur and working for yourself. Will you regret not giving it a chance? Or will you regret going for it?
      你有换过工作吗?你有想过换工作吗?你有职业生涯规划吗?当可能的事无休止的来到时你如何生活。也许你有过为自己工作的想法。你会后悔没有给自己这个机会吗?或者后悔自己去做了这件事吗?
2. Food 食物
      Have you been eating the same food for the past 20 years? Have you always wanted to try something new but haven't got around to it yet? Are too afraid to try it because "Oh I don't like chickpeas". Go out on a limb and give it a shot. Get a cookbook full of exotic recipes and work your way through it. Make a point of going to different types of restaurants when you go out for dinner.
      在过去的20年你都吃相同的食物吗?你总是想换新口味却还一直没实现?你非常害怕去尝试它,因为“噢,我不喜欢鹰嘴豆。”出去坐在大树枝上给它一枪。得到一本国外的烹饪食谱然后用自己的方式去做。当你出外用餐时强调去不同风格的饭店。
3. Exploration 探险旅行
      Do you spend most of your time in the office only to leave your chair to travel back home again where you sit down, watch TV, and "relax"? Try getting out more. Turn off the TV and get outside. Go on a walk or a hike or a drive. Is there somewhere local that you've never been? Too often we see a lot more of foreign places than we do of our own back yard.
      你是不是花了大部分的时间在你的办公室,仅仅用了小部分时间离开座椅、回家、再次座下,看电视和“放松”?试着花更多时间出去,关闭电视去外面。散步、徒步旅行或乘车旅行。当地是否有很多地方是你从没去过?我们常常热衷于去国外而勿视了自己的庭院。
4. Risk 风险
      Like to play it safe? Worried about things going wrong? It's been my experience that everything always works out. Try something risky like changing careers or quitting your job and working for yourself. Pick up and move half way around the world and see what it's like in another culture, another country or another hemisphere.
      喜欢安全的游玩?担心很多事情会发生?根据我的经验,任何事都有可能发生。尝试一些有风险的事情,比如更换职业,或者辞去工作自己创业。带上行李,周游半个世界,去体验另一种文化,另一个国家或者另一个半球。
5. Doing something crazy做疯狂的事
      Walk home in the rain in your business suit. Join a polar bear club or sing along with a busker in the streets and see what happens. Be a back up dancer at a karaoke bar. There are a lot of crazy things you can do. Keep it clean, be respectful and I'm sure you'll find you get a burst of energy and excitement from doing it.
穿着工作装冒雨步行回家。加入北极熊俱乐部或者在大街上和卖艺者一起唱歌,看看会发生什么。在卡拉OK厅与舞者背对背跳舞。有很多疯狂的事你可以做的。保持整洁,有礼貌,我确定做这些你会得到充沛的精力和兴奋的心情。
6. Being nice 善待他人
      Do something nice for someone else out of the blue and just because. Don't expect anything in return. Volunteer at a soup kitchen, donate food and toys to an animal shelter. Plant an extra row of vegetables in your garden and donate the produce to a charity. We all think we're nice people but actions really do speak louder than words. Think about it.
      对心情低落的人表示友好,不要期待任何回报。做救助站的义工,损赠食物和玩具给动物庇护所。在你的花园种一排蔬菜,待收获后损赠给慈善机构。我们会认为自己是个好人,但是要真正去行动,不要只说不做。好好想想吧。
7. Quitting something 放弃某些东西
      We all know that when we say yes to one thing we are saying no to something else. If that committee you're on isn't providing you a sense of fulfillment or accomplishment as it once did, quit. Quit the soccer team if it's no longer fun, quit grad school if it's no longer what you want to do. Quitting is usually seen as a negative thing and to be avoided. However, being deliberate and thoughtful in what you are resigning from will open a large chunk of time that could be better spent.
      我们都知道,当我们对某件事说“是”时,必然会对另外一件事说“不”。如果委员会没有提供给你至少一次个满足感或成功感,你会退出。如果足球队不能带给你长久的欢乐,你会退出。如果读研究生不再是你想做的,你会退学。辞职通常被视为负面的事,尽可能避免。然而,若经过深思熟虑后,辞职又会为你带来更多的时间去支配。
      There are a lot of areas of our lives that unless we really take time to think about them we keep with the status quo. Living life on auto-pilot can be boring and may lead to a life with relatively few rich experiences. I have made it my mission to live deliberately and with purpose so I can look back with, hopefully, no regrets. So far so good ...
      在我们的生命中有很多方面需要我花时间去思考,否则生活会变得无聊,若任由生活自行主导,那么精彩的经历便会减少。我对的使命是认真谨慎的对待生活,目的为了当我回首往事时,没有遗憾,未来充满希望。到目前为止一切都很好……
