Sometimes I forget why I'm doing, what I'm doing. Have you ever done that? I'm not just talking about a memory problem, although that's possible too. 
有时候我会忘记为什么我在做这件事,我到底在做些什么。你有过这种体会吗?我并不仅仅是想讨论记忆,虽然这种情况发生,也确实有可能是你的记忆出了点问题。

 

I have called someone because I want to tell them something. And then, after just choosing the place for a while, not talking about anything particular. Well, I forget why I called that person in the first place. That's a memory problem. I guess that counts too. But I'm talking about a deeper problem, a bigger, why?
我给人打电话,是因为我想告诉他们一些事情。然后,选择合适的地方,还没有谈论什么特别的东西的时候,我忘记了给那人打电话的原因。这是一个记忆力的问题。我认为这是其中一个原因。但我想谈谈一个更深层次的问题,为什么会这样?

 

At one point, there was a reason we do something. For long-term projects, we need to remind ourselves of that reason. It's always could to ask ourselves why.
在某个时期,我们做某件事情是有原因的。特别是长期持续的事件,我们需要提醒自己做这件事情的原因。我们可以经常问问自己:为什么?

Why did I start to learn a language?
为什么我要学习这种语言?

Why did I join this club?
为什么我要加入这个俱乐部?

Why my friend was this person?
为什么我的朋友是这个人?

Why did I get married?
为什么我要结婚?

If we get lost in the doing, in the living, in the everyday of being, then we can then we can lose sight of the "why". I think we need indeed remind us of why. Or else it's tough to finish what we started.
如果在每天的忙忙碌碌中失去自我,那我们也就无法提出“为什么”这个问题。我想我们需要确实提醒自己“为什么”,否则,我们很难坚持到底。

We stop starting. We quit the club. We end our friendships. Our marriages get damaged.
我们可能半途而废。我们可能退出俱乐部。我们可能结束友谊。我们的婚姻可能出现裂痕。

There's nothing wrong with asking why.
我们应当问问自己“为什么”。

In fact, sometimes I think it can be very healthy and help we appreciate what you have and what you are doing.
问几个“为什么”很有帮助,它能使我们珍惜现在拥有的,并坚持正在做的事情。
