5. You'll regret every time telling off your boss upon quitting

每次辞职的时候责备老板,你会后悔的


One of my coworkers used to joke about putting in his resignation by putting a pile of poop in an expensive store product. We would laugh and commiserate, but no one ever expected he would do it–and he never did. When you work for someone or some place, you have a responsibility to act as a professional. Even if your boss is the world's biggest jerk, you don't fix another person's attitude by acting like a bigger ass. So, if you feel like you need to “settle the score,” when leaving a job, think over what you’re most upset about. Write it out in a nasty letter, but don't send it! Wait a day or two. If you still feel the need to confront a former employer, do so with tact and without emotion.
我的一位同事经常开玩笑说,他辞职的时候要把一坨屎放在昂贵的商品里送给老板。我们会大笑,会同情,但是从来没有人认为他真的会这样做他确实也从未这样做。当你为某人或某个地方工作的时候,你有责任表现得像个专业人员。即使你的老板是世界上最大的混蛋,你也不能跟他一般见识。所以,如果你觉得离职的时候需要扳回一城,仔细考虑最让你不满的是什么。把这些全都写成一封信,但是千万不要寄出去!等上一两天。之后,如果你仍然觉得有必要反抗你的前雇主,也要做得有技巧,不掺杂感情色彩。


6. You’ll regret every time putting off a passion/an interest
每次拖延兴趣或热情的时候,你会后悔


Author Russell Blake recently published a rant about running into a friend who acknowledged Blake’s career as a writer by saying he wanted to write a book too, but didn’t have the time. I loved this post because it proved to me once again that doing what one loves–especially when it’s in the arts–is not about a hobby. Passions are nature’s way of encouraging us silly humans. While your passion may be medicine or law, others thrive on painting or writing. The work one must put into a passion means time. If you put off the things you feel most strongly about, you will regret it. You won’t find time to start a poem let alone a book if you wait until the kids are grown or you can retire. Same thing for playing an instrument or learning to paint. Invest the time when the passion strikes.

作家罗素布莱克最近发表了一篇演说,说自己遇到了一位朋友,他肯定了布莱克的作家生涯,并表示自己也想写一本书,但是没有时间。我很喜欢这篇文章,因为这再次向我证明了,做自己喜爱的事情——尤其是在艺术领域中——不仅仅是一项业余爱好。热情是大自然鼓励我们愚蠢的人类的方式。你的爱好可能是在医学或法律上,还是在其他的油画或写作中成长。人必须向热情中倾注的就是时间。如果你拖延有着强烈兴趣的事情,你会后悔的。如果你想等到孩子长大,或者你退休的时候,那你永远都不会有时间写一首诗,更别说出一本书了。玩乐器或学油画也是如此。当热情高昂的时候,多投入一点时间吧。
