Stay Hungry. Stay Foolish.

夜读肖知兴的《论语笔记》,其中提到乔布斯(Steve Jobs)在斯坦福的演讲。Google了一下,搜到了原文翻译。有几个翻译版本,其它部分大同小异,主要区别是对演讲最后部分的Stay Hungry. Stay Foolish.的翻译,最蹩脚的翻译是“保持饥饿,保持愚蠢。”,有点不知所云的翻译“物有所不足,智有所不明”,比较贴切的翻译“求知若渴,大智若愚”。

乔布斯讲了三个故事,其中在第二故事(about love and loss)的结尾,乔布斯说:

I’m pretty sure none of this would have happened if I hadn’t been fired from Apple. It was awful tasting medicine, but I guess the patient needed it. Sometimes life hits you in the head with a brick. Don’t lose faith. I’m convinced that the only thing that kept me going was that I loved what I did. You’ve got to find what you love. And that is as true for your work as it is for your lovers. Your work is going to fill a large part of your life, and the only way to be truly satisfied is to do what you believe is great work. And the only way to do great work is to love what you do. If you haven’t found it yet, keep looking. Don’t settle. As with all matters of the heart, you’ll know when you find it. And, like any great relationship, it just gets better and better as the years roll on. So keep looking until you find it. Don’t settle.

我确信,如果不是被苹果公司解雇,这一切决不可能发生。这是一剂苦药,可我认为苦药利于病。有时生活会当头给你一棒,但不要灰心。我坚信让我一往无前的唯一力量就是我热爱我所做的一切。所以,一定得知道自己喜欢什么,选择爱人时如此,选择工作时同样如此。工作将是生活中的一大部分,让自己真正满意的唯一办法,是做自己认为是有意义的工作;做有意义的工作的唯一办法,是热爱自己的工作。你们如果还没有发现自己喜欢什么,那就不断地去寻找,不要急于做出决定。就像一切要凭著感觉去做的事情一样,一旦找到了自己喜欢的事,感觉就会告诉你。就像任何一种美妙的东西,历久弥新。所以说,要不断地寻找,直到找到自己喜欢的东西。不要半途而废。

10月27日,Computer Weekly评出了Top 10 greatest IT people,乔布斯名列第一。
