快乐与成功的关系?—读The Happiness Advantage《快乐竞争力》

   

本书为智慧点心坊108本英文经典心灵书籍读书笔记的第5本

多亏前沿的科学研究,我们现在认识到,快乐是成功的先锋,而不仅仅是结果;快乐和乐观实际上能提高业绩和成就,让我们获得竞争优势,我称之为“快乐优势”。

Thanks to this cutting-edge science, we now know that happiness is the precursor to success, not merely the result. And that happiness and optimism actually fuel performance and achievement—giving us the competitive edge that I call the Happiness Advantage.

对大多数人来说,职场不是一个考虑快乐的地方。

内在声音的呼唤-看《梦幻之地》

Field of Dreams

Ray是个36岁的农夫。他生活在爱荷华州,拥有一个农场,一个幸福的家庭,能干的妻子,可爱的小女儿。某个黄昏,当他在玉米田里干农活的时候,开始听到一阵低沉的呼唤“ If you build it, he will come (如果你把它建起来,他就会来)”。并且这个如窃窃私语般的声音一再的出现。Ray起初非常惊讶,后来是愤怒,但当他有一次在玉米田里又听到这个声音的时候,他忽然想到在玉米田能造一个棒球场,这样他老爸的偶像,昔日棒球明星“赤脚乔”就会回来打球。

如何找到生命的终极目标?

life purpose

本文为【哈佛幸福课推荐书】—Flow 读书笔记之八

当我写下这个题目,突然意识到自己有点“标题党”的味道,因为正如Csikszentmihalyi书中所言,没有人会跳出来告诉我们:这是值得你一辈子去投入的目标。

因为该走哪个方向没有绝对的定论,每个人都必须靠自己去发现人生的终极目标。通过反复尝试和犯错,经过努力地学习和培养,我们才能从纷乱有冲突的目标中理出头绪,挑选出能带给我们行动方向感的那一个。
Because there is no absolute certainty to which to turn, each person must discover ultimate purpose on his or her own. Through trial and error, through intense cultivation, we can straighten out the tangled skein of conflicting goals, and choose the one that will give purpose to action.

生命有意义吗?

direction

本文为【哈佛幸福课推荐书】—Flow 读书笔记之七

生命有意义吗?在本书的最后一章Csikszentmihalyi回答了这个问题。他认为:

如果我们所谓的“意义”是建立在自然界架构和人类经验之上,并适用于每一个人的目标,那么人生确实没有意义可言,但这并不表示我们不能赋予生命意义。
It is true that life has no meaning, if by that we mean a supreme goal built into the fabric of nature and human experience, a goal that is valid for every individual. But it does not follow that life cannot be given meaning.

转化困境 Transforming Adversity

adversity

本文为【哈佛幸福课推荐书】—Flow 读书笔记之六

当逆境几乎使我们陷入瘫痪时,我们必须找到一个能投注精神能量的新方向,一个不会受到外来力量影响的方向,以便重新获得控制力。即使所有希望都破灭,我们还是得寻找一个有意义的目标,围绕它来重新整顿自我。

When adversity threatens to paralyze us, we need to reassert control by finding a new direction in which to invest psychic energy, a direction that lies outside the reach of external forces. When every aspiration is frustrated, a person still must seek a meaningful goal around which to organize the self.
