Put the Glass Down

希望这个小故事能让你开心:)

Put the Glass Down

A lecturer was giving a lecture to his students on stress management. He raised a glass of water and asked the audience, “How heavy do you think this glass of water is?”

The students’ answers ranged from 20g to 500g.

“It does not matter on the absolute weight. It depends on how long you hold it. If I hold it for a minute, it is OK. If I hold it for an hour, I will have an ache in my right arm. If I hold it for a day, you will have to call an ambulance. It is the exact same weight, but the longer I hold it, the heavier it becomes.

“If we carry our burdens all the time, sooner or later, we will not be able to carry on, the burden becoming increasingly heavier.

“What you have to do is to put the glass down, rest for a while before holding it up again.”

We have to put down the burden periodically, so that we can be refreshed and are able to carry on.

So before you return home from work tonight, put the burden of work down. Don’t carry it back home. You can pick it up tomorrow.

Whatever burdens you are having now on your shoulders, let it down for a moment if you can.

Life is short, enjoy it!!

人们忙碌谋生,很难得有时间静下来思考。只有动静平衡,一个人才能在忙的时候心态平和,而闲的时候也同样内心充实。

老子曾言:“祸兮,福之所倚;福兮,祸之所伏。”
Francis Bacon也曾说过:“Prosperity is not without many fears and distastes; and adversity is not without comforts and hopes。”
福祸相依,一个人别身在福中不知福;当然,谁也不想祸不单行。
福与祸的平衡点:居安思危、临危不乱
英语中也有一句谚语:“In prosperity caution, in adversity patience. ”   
  
成功的人,先让生活的各个方面并行不悖,再让这些方面蒸蒸日上
工作、娱乐、学习、劳动、爱情、亲情、友情……
这些都是盛开在生活中的花
只有百花齐放才会美不胜收
牺牲生活的其他方面只为成就辉煌的事业
一枝独秀,却孤芳自赏

生活的各方面平衡,才是美:)
Find the balance.

Should I find a girlfriend to weather the financial crisis?


If the girlfriend is materialistic, she may add to your financial crisis.

But seriously speaking, let nature take its course.  When it is time to have a girlfriend, nature will tell you to do so.  Certainly, don't let a financial crisis try and tell you to find a girlfriend.

On the other hand, loneliness is tough.  It doesn't help if one is quiet and shy.  So get up and about. Mix with others and be friendly and helpful. Take up a hobby. Stay healthy and positive-minded.  Soon, someone will clear the clouds of loneliness and make you feel different.  You too should try and make others feel less lonely.  That's one way to beat the loneliness bug.

Also think what to do with time after office hours.  Just stay in the room and relax, or go out with friends and sit around, or find extra-work and keep busy to make some more money?  These questions each will have his own choice answers.

No matter what, the crisis won't last.  Why do i say this?  When people lose money, they must have lost money to some other people.  Those other people will soon want to invest and that will roll the money back into the market or industry.  Then the economy will speed up again.

In the character 'crisis' is also the word 'opportunity'.

Stay sharp and wait for the next upturn.

To find a girl friend is a good idea. But I think the purpose that you want to find a girl friend is to drive away loniness. When you busy, will you think about your girl friend? And girl friend is not your "port" or not a "thing", which you get when you want. To make a girl friend needs your love and care. She is not your servant either. So, if you really want to make a girl friend, please think it over very clearly and get ready.
