光从哪里来

The Source of Light



2013年底,我从一名毕业生加入施璐德,到现在成长为一名项目经理,6年的时间,我认识了很多人,也让很多人认识了我。这不长但也不短的6年里,我的人生产生了很多不一样的可能性,个人生活状态的变化、辗转,一切的思索、感受与困惑,一帧一帧,都在其间。

In late 2013, I joined CNOOD after leaving the campus. In the past six years, I have grown from a green hand to a project manager. In this period, I have met all sorts of people, and displayed myself to them. The six years are not long but not short. They have brought about changes in my life, recording all my thoughts, feelings and confusions, like a camera, frame by frame.



光阴荏苒!

Time,Time flies!


我即将分享的这些感受,我把它取名叫:光从哪里来。

The following are some of my perceptions I'm about to share, titled “the source of light".



 我

  Me


入职的第4年可谓职业生涯的至暗时刻,工作上遇到一些瓶颈难以突破,所以那个时候,我特别郁闷。每天早上一睁开眼,想到要去公司上班,完全没有动力。我也觉得我每天都在做重复性劳动,感觉很焦虑,又不知道该怎么办。

The 4th year of taking work proved the darkest in my career. I met some bottlenecks at work which I was unable to break. I was depressed. Every morning after I opened eyes, I was vexed to think I should go to the company, so I was out of steam. I was doing repeated work every day, and I was at a loss what to do next.


我追问着自己:现在的状态是不是我想要的?是继续呆在重复的舒适区,还是走出来寻找更多的可能性?我不断地思考这个问题,然后反思了很多从工作第一年到第四年的种种经历,我的内心发出了一束光:我要找一个出口,重新认识自己,我一定要改变。

I asked myself, “Is this what I want?” Shall I stay to enjoy the comfort of repeated work or go out to look for more possibilities? I was obsessed with the question, while reflecting my work experience over the past four years. Then a beam of light emitted from my heart, telling me I should find an outlet and rediscover myself. I should make a change.


翻阅名人大牛的书,接触一些优秀人士的经历,我慢慢了解到,“令我之所以是我”的,是我身上那些最有价值的特质,比如说独立、自尊自爱、坚持自己的声音、关心社会与他人等等,而不是因为别人寄托在我身上的点评或标签,亦不是我自身的想象。这种认知,让我开始变得自信。

I leafed through many books of celebrities to learn about their experiences. I realized that what made me were precisely the most valuable traits in me, i.e., independence, self-respect, standing up to myself, and caring about the society and others. They were not labels placed on me by others, nor my own imagination. With this knowledge, I became more confident.


我开始希望在世界中扮演一个主动的角色,无论是学习、工作、婚姻、生育、达成财富等等任何一种。我希望自己成为这样一种人:拥有善良、正义、担当,不管在多么困难的境地下,在多么黑暗的夜里,都不会失去希望和内心的光明,并且能够用最好的生命状态是去感染更多人。

I started to hope to play an active role in this world, in the fields of study, work, marriage, fertility and wealth. I wanted to be such a person, who, equipped with kindness, justice and responsibility, would never lose hope and inner light no matter how difficult the situation and how dark the night might be. Instead, in the best state of life, I would inspire more people.



种一棵树,最好的时间是十年前,其次是现在。

The best time to plant a tree should be 10 years ago. But it’s not too late now.


我这样想时,那常挂在嘴角的微笑和行走时带起的风,它们都告诉我,世界开始不一样。

As I thought so, the smiles at the corners of my mouth and the light steps I took told that the world started to be different.


在这个慌乱而匆忙的时代,还有比这更柔软,更坚定的勇敢吗?

In this frantic, hurried age, is there any softer, firmer courage?


你说光从哪里来?——去做更好的自己,内心的光就一定会驱散阴霾,指明方向。

So where is the source of light? —— Be a better self, and the light in our hearts will dispel the haze and point the way.



工作

 WORK


我相信每个人上学的时候,都会有一种经历——害怕别人说自己努力。那时候总觉得,如果需要努力才能做成一件事,可真丢人啊!所以会跟其他同学说:我放学回家基本不学习。

I am sure everyone has such an experience in the school days -- We fear others say that we work hard, because it was a shame to take efforts to get something done. So I often told my classmates I barely studied after coming home.


实际上呢 你每天晚上,做题到一点钟……

But in fact, every night I would still do homework round midnight.


现在想想,努力有什么丢人的呢?不努力才丢人!

Now, as I look back, I have found it doesn’t make a scene to study hard. It's embarrassing on the contrary.


持续努力的学习,就是让一个人成为Plus+的自己。主动学习,才能适应时代。成功的人,都是时间的长期主义者,把学习的目标植根于长期的坚持不懈,不盲从几天的变化,也不低估几个月几年的变化,终会长出丰硕的果实。

Keeping to study hard is to make us surpass ourselves. By taking the initiatve to study, we will adapt to the times. High-flyers are all long termists. They root the goal of learning in long-term perseverance. They do not blindly follow changes in a few days, nor underestimate changes in a few months and years. Fruitful results will grow in the end.


是的,要学习。那么,学什么?

It’s true, we must learn. Then, what shall we learn?


互联网时代,大规模碎片化的知识最容易习得,但如果不能结合思维能力去解决具体问题,市场价值几乎等于零。

In the Internet age, it’s easy to acquire massive fragmented knowledge. But if we cannot solve specific problems with the ability of thinking, these efforts are close to zero in market value.


我们常常忘了,人的大脑,不应该只用来记忆,更重要的是用来思考。

It often slips our mind that human brain should not be used only for memory. They shall be applied to think.



《奇葩说》里陈铭举过一个例子:水在零度的时候会结冰,这是一个常识,是对外部客观规律的归纳和总结。而在未来的时间中,我在什么时候把什么味道的水变成什么味道的冰棒,再卖给谁,这就叫做对知识的智慧运用和处理能力。

Chen Ming cited a case in the variety show U can U BiBi: Water freezes at zero. It is a common sense, an induction and summary of the external objective law. But when shall I turn water of some tastes into popsicles, and sell them? This is the ability to use and handle knowledge intelligently.


从这个层面上讲,这种学习后产生的“独立思考和解决问题”的能力,正是值得投入更多的精力的、不局限于行业和岗位的,更高级的、可迁移的能力。对于职业发展来说,通过修习这样的能力来不断完善自己,打开自己,而后再反馈给事业,和它一起成长,是一种非常理想的状态。

In this case, the ability to "think and solve problems independently" after learning is a more advanced, transferable ability that deserves extra efforts, not limited to industry and position. For career development, it is ideal to constantly improve ourselves, unfold ourselves by practicing this ability, feed it back to our career, and grow up with it.


世上工作千万种,往往最为难得是 “适合你”。适合是催化剂,可以将一个人的天赋与才能发挥到极致。当某项工作还未开始你已经迫不及待跃跃欲试,并且非常有信心能做好,你做这项工作得到的、成长的必将比别人多,进步的比别人快,甚至于即使做到疲劳和困倦,也往往感觉异常满足,因为你找到了足够匹配自己兴趣的职业方向。

There are numerous jobs in the world. The rarest is the one that “fits us”. Fitting is a catalyst, as it takes our talent and ability to the fullest. If we can’t wait to get into work before it starts, and have the confidence to do it well, we will gain more from this job and grow faster than others. Even if we are fatigued and drowsy in this process, we will feel unusually content, as we have found the career direction that matches our interest.


可是我们当中的大多数,往往没有那么幸运,完全匹配的工作常常可遇不可求。日趋激烈的行业竞争,企业的发展和淘汰几乎是一夕之间。现代企业,要提高效率,降低风险,必然走向专业化分工,然而专业化分工的同时也在专业化的 “选人”,并不依赖个人的“情感适合”,这对人才来说是灾难性的。

However, most of us are often not so lucky. The perfectly matched jobs are hard to come by. In increasingly fierce industry competition, the development or elimination of a business often takes place overnight. A modern enterprise will inevitably choose specialized division of labor to improve efficiency and reduce risks. But specialized division of labor also implies professionalized "selection of talent", which does not depend on personal "emotional fitness". This is disastrous for talents.


在这种趋势下,应该如何处理个人与职业的关系呢?

In this circumstance, how shall we deal with the relationship between an individual and career?


这个时候需要思考:

We must think:


这个行业和公司的关键成功因素是什么?对用户对社会的价值是什么?我的岗位对公司的核心价值是什么?

What are the key factors to make the industry and business a success? What are the values to the users and society? What is the core value of my post to the company?


这几个问题的答案,都可以用一句话概括:解决问题。

The answers to these questions can be summed up in one phrase -- solve problems.


任何职业,本质都是学习并解决问题。营销解决的是如何让客户知道我们的产品和服务,HR解决的事如何让公司有充足的人才供给等等。公司也是某类用户或社会问题的一套抽象而具体的解决方案,比如,滴滴解决快速打车需求,饿了么解决居家用餐需求。

Any profession, in essence, is to learn and solve problems. Marketing addresses how to let customers know about our products and services. HR solves how to supply the company with enough talent. A company is an abstract or concrete solution for certain types of users or social problems. For instance, Didi meets the need for fast ride-hailing. Eleme delivers take-out to the door.


能解决问题,个人/公司就有了存在的价值。

An individual or a company has the value of existence once they can solve problems.


所以学习的最终目的是为了解决问题,这很重要。

So the ultimate goal of learning is to solve problems. It’s important to remember that.


从更加宏观的角度去看问题,而不是去做一颗螺丝钉;使自己横向可迁移纵向可拓展,而不是被定制;把自己的发展和公司的命运紧密相连,共同面对并解决发展的难题。

We must see the issues in a macro perspective rather than serving as a screw. We must expand ourselves extensively rather than being customized. We must closely link our own development with the fate of the company, and together face and solve development problems.


不同阶段炼化不同的素质,丰富、拓展自己解决问题的能力与方式,就可以“以不变应万变”,从而“干一行、爱一行”,完成个人与职业双向关系的良好传递与反馈。

At different stages, we must cultivate different qualities, enrich and expand our competence and ways to solve problems, so as to “cope with shifting events by sticking to a fundamental principle” and “love whatever job we take up”, and complete the sound transmission and feedback of personal and professional two-way relationship.



经历告诉我,无论是对未来迷茫也好,遇到发展瓶颈也好,其实都可以去解决的。我们要做的,就是去学习,将学到的知识内化成独立思考的能力、解决问题的能力,就能形成独特的个人品牌,更裨益于个人与工作的共同发展。

My experience tells me that whether we are confused about the future or meet development bottlenecks, we can actually solve them. What we should do is to learn and internalize our knowledge into an ability to think independently and solve problems. In this way, we will establish a unique personal brand, which is conducive to the common development of the individual and work.


你说光从哪里来?饱满的求知欲和源源不断的自我驱动实践能力,可以照亮事业发展的时空大道。

So what is the source of light? Our thirst for knowledge and incessant self-driven ability to put ideas into practice may illuminate the space-time avenue for career development.



小世界

My Little World


在施璐德的这几年里,我结婚、生子,如今儿子2岁多了。

During my stay in CNOOD, I got married and had a son, who is over two years old now.


2岁的小孩,就像一个发电量永远满格的发电机,爱跳、爱跑、爱探索一切新鲜事物。

A 2-year-old boy is like a fully-charged generator, loving to jump, run and explore everything new.


这个小小的生命,能在不经意间戳破我自以为是伪装成“大人”的壳,时刻提醒我:宝宝只是年纪小,不要欺负宝宝读书少。

This little life will poke by accident through my self-righteously disguised "adult" shell, reminding me all the time that a little baby may have great wisdom.


经常是前一秒被他怼到满头黑线,下一秒却觉得娃说得甚有道理。那些或扎心或暖心的时刻,不光让我觉得智商被碾压,更让我窥见一个纯真又缤纷的小宇宙,它藏在一个稚气童真的小脑袋瓜里,不定期向成年人开放。

He often dissed me speechless. But in a second I would find it made sense. Those heart-piercing and heart-warming moments make me feel overwhelmed, and let me peek a pure and colorful microcosm that is hidden in the childish little head, open occasionally to the adults.



某一天再回过头来想起,你会发现那些自然天成的小哲理,还有让人捧腹的小俏皮,像宝石一样闪闪发亮,成为我最宝贵的记忆。

One day as I look back, I will find that the natural philosophic thought, the hilarious witty remarks of the little child will still shine like gems, and become my most precious memory. 


而作为父母的我,能给孩子最好的礼物,就是足够的爱和包容。

As a mom, the best gift I can give him is enough love and tolerance.


让他的眼里永远有星星,心里永远有诗……

Let there always be stars in his eyes, and poetry in his heart.


你说光从哪里来?小孩子的童真,就可以点亮一个充满爱和幸福的小世界。

So what is source of light? Children's innocence can light up a little world of love and happiness.



Epilogue


2019年,是施璐德成立10周年。

The year 2019 marked the 10th anniversary of the founding of CNOOD.


十年,除了对旧时光的感慨,最重要的是在我们身处的每一个坐标系中,留下了我们奋斗、思考和经历的共同印记。

In addition to deep feelings toward the old time, the 10 years, most important of all, have left a common mark about our struggle, thoughts and experiences in every coordinate system we are in.


时间沉淀记忆,记忆引领未来。我相信,过去的十年发生的一切,都将引导我们走向一条更正确的、更长远的道路。

Time precipitates memory, and memory leads to the future. I believe what has happened over the past decade will lead us to a more correct and farther way.


就像十年之前,即使我们互不认识,但相似的灵魂总会相遇。

It’s just like 10 years ago, even if we didn't know each other, similar souls would always meet.


如今,这么多志同道合的伙伴聚在一起,如同微光会吸引微光,微光会照亮微光,然后一起发光,穿透雾霾,把前路照亮。

Today, so many like-minded friends have rallied here, like glimmer attracts twilight, and illuminates each other. They will shine together to penetrate the haze and light the way ahead.
