We were just about getting ready to warm up for the practice game over the weekend when I had an interesting conversation with one of the team mates I actually didn't know quite well.
周末,我们正准备为即将开始的练习赛进行热身时,我和一位并不怎么熟悉的队友进行了一次有趣的对话。

"So what do you do?" he asked. "Well, we work for ourselves, we run a software company", I replied. "Oh really! that's awesome! I work for xyz company, but you know I always wanted to get into animation design and work for myself. It was my dream. I got stuck in the wrong industry."
“所以,你是做什么工作的?”他问道。“我们为自己工作,我们创办了一家软件公司。”我回答道。“真的吗?这真棒!我在XYZ公司工作,但是你知道我总想进入动画设计,我想为自己工作。这是我的梦想。我总是困在错误的行业里。”

"You ain't dead yet, are you?" I thought trying hard not say that aloud. He continued "You know, I've been wanting to do this for 10 years now, but once you have a family, it's very tough to do anything else."
“你不还没死呢,对吧......”我努力地不大声说出这话。他继续说道:“你知道,我想做这都想了10年了,但是一旦你成家了,就很难做其他事了。”

I couldn't resist anymore, so I said "That's great, if you really want to do that, may be you should take up some animation classes, or do some self learning at your own pace. That would be a good start". Pat came the reply "Nahh it's very difficult, with family, full time job, no time. I would love to, but I can't."
我忍不住了,所以我说:“那很好啊,如果你真的想去做,也许你应该参加一些动画课程,或者按照你自己的节奏进行自我练习。这些都是很好的开始。”Pat则回复:“这很难,我有家庭,有全职工作,我没有时间。我很愿意去做,但是我无法做到。”

Reluctantly, I suggested "Then may be you should consider training full time for a few weeks/months and perhaps dive in full-time?" He looked at me like I had just asked him to cut off his right hand. "Are you crazy? Where will the paycheck come from?"
我很不情愿地建议:“那也许你应该考虑在几个月或几个星期进行全天候的练习。又或者是放弃全职工作?”他看着我,似乎我刚才要求他切掉他的右手。“你疯了吗?那我从哪里获得薪水?”

Realizing this conversation was heading towards an argument with someone I didn't know very well at the first place, I chose to just smile and leave it at that. But it made me think. What is it with people refusing to take some risks to follow their dreams. Are their dreams not worth it? If not, why do we sulk about them later? Don't we owe it to ourselves to at least give our dreams a fair shot?
在明白了这个对话正朝着与一个我不熟悉的人进行争论的方向发展后,我选择了微笑和离开。但是这使我深思。是什么让人们不愿为了追随他们的梦想而承担一些风险?是因为他们的梦想不值得他们这样做吗?如果不是,那为什么我们之后会对梦想生闷气?难道我们不应该为了自己,给我们的梦想一个公平的机会吗?
