On synthesizing our own happiness and making our own luck, and the importance of mental health care:

创造幸福,得到好运以及心理健康的重要性:

This is where we run into trouble in terms of being fulfilled… You have to make your own happiness, wherever you are.

仅从获得满足的角度来讲,这就是我们出问题的地方……不论身处何地,一个人都需要通过努力是自己变得幸福。

Your job isn’t going to make you happy, your spouse isn’t going to make you happy, the weather isn’t going to make you happy…

能使你幸福的不是你的工作,不是你的配偶,不是一天的天气……

You have to decide what you want, and you have to find that way of doing it, whether or not the outside circumstances are going to participate in your success…

你必须为自己所追求之事作出决定,然后找出实现它的方法,不论外界环境是否有利于你的成功……

You have to be able to create your own happiness, period. And if you can’t, then you need to find a good shrink who can help you figure out what it’s going to take.

你必须具备为自己创造幸福的能力,仅此而已。如果你做不到,那就需要去找一名能够帮助你搞清楚如何选择的优秀心理医生。

On finding a sense of purpose:                   

关于找到目标感:

What I think has helped propel me to live a more purposeful life [is] to feel that what I’m doing is coming from my heart and not my head so much. And it’s still a struggle.

我认为鞭策我追求更有目标的生活的方式,是去感知我的内心想做的事,而不是按照我的头脑想做的来。这也是一场斗争。

On how our actions, not our words, reveal our true priorities:

我们的行为,而不是言语,如何出卖了我们真正在意的事:

I’m a big proponent of “busy is a decision.” You decide what you want to do and the things that are important to you. And you don’t find the time to do things — you make the time to do things. And if you aren’t doing them because you’re “too busy,” it’s likely not as much of a priority as what you’re actually doing.

我是“忙碌来源于选择”这一说法的忠实拥趸。你想做什么取决于你自己以及你觉得什么事情是重要的。所以你不是在找时间做事——你是在把时间安排出来做事。要是你因为“太忙了”没办法做一些事,很有可能是因为这些事没有你正在做的那么重要。

On what it means and what it takes to have a good life, adapted from Millman’s remarkable commencement address:

改编自米尔曼的精彩开篇词们要的,幸福生活之味和幸福生活之门:

Imagine immensities. Pick yourself up from rejection and plow ahead. Don’t compromise.

Start now.      

想象无边无际的世界。从独立的态度中走出来,向前奋进。不要妥协。从现在做起。

Start now, every single day.

从每一天的”现在”开始。

The entire conversation is well worth watching, as is subscribing to both The Good Life Project and Design Matters (also on Sound Cloud). Complement with Millman’s heartening commencement address on courage and the creative life and her illustrated poems and essays.

整个对话是极其值得一读的,它同时被收录在“美好人生计划”和“设计大事记”(也被收录在”声推”)。并附有米尔曼关于勇气和创造性的生活的深刻开篇词,和她的插图诗作及散文。
