“Busy is a decision… You don’t find the time to do things — you make the time to do things.”

"忙碌是一种决定……你不是在找时间做事——你为了做事挤时间。“

What does it take to have a good life? That’s what Jonathan Fields, author of Uncertainty: Turning Fear and Doubt into Fuel for Brilliance, wondered when his daughter turned five and he grew tired of reading her fables about the knight who saves the princess to live happily ever after.

怎样才能过上幸福的生活?《不确定性:将恐惧和怀疑化为智慧》一书的作者乔纳森·菲尔兹在厌倦了给自己五岁的小女儿念”骑士救了公主,从此过上了幸福的生活“的老套童话之后,思考起这个问题来。

So he set out to find more empowering stories of existential success from some of the most inspiring women and men of our time, and The Good Life Project was born — a wonderful conversation series, which also gave us Milton Glaser on art, technology, and the secret of life. 所以他开始寻找我们生活中的那些更加真实可信的激励人心的奋斗者的故事。于是,“美好生活计划”诞生了——这是一系列优秀的访谈录,其中也包括了米尔顿·格拉瑟关于艺术,科技的访谈及其生活之道。

 

 In this remarkably wide-ranging and soul- stimulating episode, Fields turns the tables on master-interviewer Debbie Millman, host of the National Design Award winning radio show Design Matters and author of, most recently, Self-Portrait as Your Traitor. Together, they explore the question of what makes it possible to design your life — to design a good life. Highlights below.在这个主题多样又发人深省的节目中,菲尔扭转了对资深访谈人戴比·米尔曼的谈话局势,后者系“国家设计大奖”得主的电台节目“设计大事记”的主持人,并且是最近两部新作品《自画像》和《你的出卖者》的作者。

他们一起探索了能使我们自己把握生活的可能因素——通往美好生活的各种条件。如下所示,即:

On the shared humanity of the “impostor syndrome” most creative people feel and what years of interviewing great minds have revealed about the life-cycle of happiness:

在人性的共同特点“欺骗症候群”的影响下,根据大部分有创造力的人的经验以及对那些杰出者经年采访所了解到的,幸福的消长周期是这样的:

The one common denominator [that great thinkers and creators] have shared with me over the years is that they all feel like they have to get up every day and do it again. 多年以来那些杰出的思想家和开创者和我分享的一个共同经验是,他们都感到即使在取得成就以后也要每天早起继续勤奋工作。

They all feel like they may very well be discovered as phonies, they very well may never, ever achieve what they had hoped.

他们都认为自己本里很有可能被当成骗子,或者很可能永远都无法实现自己的期望。

The only two people in all the years that I’ve done this that have been different, that have had a different experience in articulating who they are and what they believe, are Milton Glaser and Massimo Vignelli.

我采访过的人中只有两位是与此不同的,他们在培养自己,形成自己的信念的过程中有着不同的经历。这两位就是米尔顿·格拉瑟和马西诺·威戈内尔。

 But I think the common denominator that they share is that they’re both in their eighties!

但是我认为他们所共有的决定性特质却是他们都已年届八旬!
