题记:当突然被问到“人生规划”时,一时却无言以对,只能以“真的没有”真心应之,毕业这么多年,这个话题似乎离自己很是遥远,年少之时,不知天高地厚,一颗轻狂和浮躁的心难免抱着一些不切实际的梦想,如今经历了人生百态世间的冷暖之后,只能弯腰把梦越做越小了,作为一个PC,在工作当中不时地忙着做ramp up计划,却忘记了给自己的人生做一次ramp up plan,如今,当面对现实,需重拾年少时的希冀时,浏览着一些有关人生计划的文字,明白了有时在埋头苦干的同时,有时也需要抬头看看前面的路,因为可能在你正努力往前奔跑的时候,说不定却是你在往死路上赶的时候,同时也懂得你如果不能让自己成为一个绩优股,但你得让自己成为一个潜力股,如果你自己都不知道要去哪里,那么通常你也是哪里都去不成。
【译文】
Without a clearly defined dream, or you have no design for your life, which maybe is the very reason why you can't be promoted or earn much more. Several years ago, Gail Sheehy, an American author wrote a best-seller "Explorers", during his composing, he visited 60 thousand people from all kinds of occupations by a copy of wide-ranging "life process questionnaire" indirectly, and found out there's two common characteristics between those most successful and satisfied people, firstly, they like to make more close friends; secondly, they focus on a not-so-easy achieved goal beyond their capability. According to Sheehy's study, these explorers feel that their life is very meaningful, and enjoy a much better life than those people who have no long-term goal driven forward. As the Western proverb says, "if you don't know where you wanna go, then you usually can't go anywhere"

Life planning is not only a schedule which makes your final goal come true, but also a schedule which realizes many small targets affecting your daily life. The designing of life planning need you make your attention, and make full use of your mental and physical in a special time range. Actually, the more you make your attention, the more effective you will make use of your mental and physical. People should choose the region which can match their personal interests,personal talent advantage and the opportunity provided by social and family,it's the best choice of life orientation and easily comes true, in the contrary,personal disadvantage and area you dislike is the one we should avoid, for they're not helpful for a successful life. Life planning will allocate your energy reasonably, and here are six steps for life planning design.

Step 1: Find or make clear what is your main goal in life.

The main goal in life, it should be a lifelong pursuit fixed target, all other things in your life exist around it.For some people, it's a happy journey of self discovery, but for others, it's maybe a painful process, for they need put their mind back to the young age, when they had no doubt about their dreams, in order to find or get back your main life goal, you may ask yourself several questions, such as "who am I?",  "what kind of achievements I want?", "what is the most satisfied thing in my whole life when I am dying and retrospect it?", "what kind of success from which I have a sense of achievement in my daily life?".

Maybe you will soon be able to know what is your ultimate goal, but it's another thing for most people. they need to repeat the questions above or other similar problems in different occasions before finding their ultimate aim, put it down your feelings every time when you ask yourself this kind of questions. It may be not helpful in the beginning, however, multiple accumulation will let you become enlightened at once.

People who are happy are usually such kind of person, i.e., their job and life style is basically same as their life goal, for example, a person who has a strong organizational awareness, gift for words and tendency for teaching, is possible to get maximum satisfaction from occupation as an editor, or a teacher.

Step 2: You can get ready for realizing it when you can express your life goal with a simple sentence.

In this respect, choice of occupation is a question you should focus on. You should know, occupation is a tool, a tool that actualizes your ultimate goal. The importance of schematizing your occupation, is just like a general planning a campaign or a soccer coach deciding the competition scenario of an important match.

You can ask yourself, "is my job helpful for realizing my ultimate life goal?", if the answer is no, it's time for job-hopping, and if it's unrealistic for you to change your job, you can ask yourself another question, "if there is a way that can make my job available as same as my basic life goal?", usually, the answer is yes for the second question. For example, a lawyer who is successful but not satisfied with his wealthy materially, he may get satisfied mentally by using part of his energy into doing some charitable things, and an auditor who is hired by a big company may become a partial-time professor in a college nearby, and get his satisfaction in the process of summing up experiences into theories which he can't get from his boring daily life.  

The most ideal life planning in occupation,should begin after your graduation from school, when you know what kind of job you should choose and accept as long as you are clear about your life goal, undoubtedly, you would choose a job that is helpful for realizing your life goal.

However, you should remember, it's not late to start your occupation planning as long as you don't have to spend your twilight years. No matter you are a  young man who is only 20 years old and has just stepped into work or a middle-aged man who is 40 years old and is lost in the job you don't like. Now is still a good opportunity for your occupation planning.

Step 3: You should consider the details of your life and occupation planning after that you figure out your occupation will help you achieve greater purpose in life.

You need a detailed personal occupation development schedule, this schedule can be a five-year plan, ten-year or twenty-year plan. No matter what time scope the  plan belongs to, It should at least be able to answer the questions

1.what kind of detailed goals should I realize in my future 5 years, 10 years or 20 years?

2.How much should I get paid or what degree of the ability should I learn to earn money in the next 5 years, 10 years or 20 years?

For answering these questions, it will provide you a copy of checking list about your short-term goal. Don't simply rely on logical thinking in the process of the formations of these goals. it needs your creation for such kind of choices. Youshould mobilize your emotions, values and beliefs and other factors all together,and if you're married, you need to take your spouse's emotions, values and beliefs into consideration, for in any important choice, (s)he is part of the factors affecting your life.

Step 4: After making sure the detailed short-term goals as above, you should plan that how you achieve them.

For example, you are now a middle-management staff, and your five-year, ten-year or twenty-year personal occupation planning require you to be a senior supervisor, then how will it be possible to make your target come true? If you can answer the questions as below well, then you should know how you should do, and these questions are:

1.which special trainings should I require to make me qualified to be a senior executive?

2.what book knowledge should I learn?

3.what internal political obstacles should I exclude to make my career smooth?

4.If my current boss is a help or a disorder in this respect?

5.How much is the possibility for me to become a senior supervisor in this company? If the opportunity here is greater than in any other company?


6.How is the general education, experience and age to get the position?

Step 5: Action.

This is one of the most difficult steps in all steps, for you need to stop dreaming and effectively do it right now. As we all know, good motivation is just a condition for a goal to be established and start to be realized, but not all, If the motivation is not converted into action, motivation is always  motivation, goal can only stay in the dream stage. In order to realize ultimate life goal,there are two kinds of traps we need to be careful to avoid, one is laziness,and the other is mistake, even a minor one. Laziness is an enemy of career success.

Many people keep a lifetime struggle and can't achieve their life goals perfectly, not to mention the lazy. If you wannaa life without regrets, you need to focus on it and try your best, in addition of sticking to your goal. In the process to achieve the ultimate goal of life, it's inevitable that there will be various obstacles or temptations, any mistake or error will make you far away from your target. However, to error is human; to divine is God. In the hard way to ideal, weshould make as few mistake as possible, only in this way could we achieve our goal as soon as possible.

Step 6:  Continue to revise and update your life and occupation development goals.

To determine a goal is often based on special social environments and conditions, which is always changing, and the determined goal should be revised and updated, moreover,this target is written out, but not carved in stone. Its exist is only a framework for your advance, and indicates a direction. you're the creator, you can revise it, whenever it seems to lead you to a wrong way.

【原文】
缺乏一个明确的梦想,即对人生没有一种设计,或许正是你很少得到提拔和不能够赚到更多金钱的原因。几年前,美国作家盖尔.希伊出版了一部畅销书,书名叫《开拓者们》,他在撰写这部书的时候,通过一份内容十分广泛的“ 人生历程调查问卷”,间接地访问了 6 万多个各行各业的人士,他发现那些最成功和对自己生活最满意的人至少有两个共同的特点:第一,他们喜欢有更多的亲密朋友;第二,他们都致力于实现一个其实际能力所难于达到的目标。根据希伊的研究,这些开拓者们觉得他们的生活很有意义,而且比那些没有长远目标驱使其向前的人更会享受生活。正如西方有一句谚语所说的“如果你不知道你要到哪儿去,那通常你哪儿也去不了”。


人生规划既是一个实现你终生目标的时间表,也是一个实现那些影响你日常生活的无数更小目标的时间表。人生规划的设计是要使你的注意力集中起来,在一个特定的时间范围里充分地利用你的脑力和体力。事实上,注意力越集中,脑力和体力的使用就越有效。人们一般应该选择个人兴趣爱好及个人才智能力优势与社会、家庭所提供的发展机会相配合的区域,是人生定位的上选,成功的概率很高。相反,个人处于劣势和排斥的区域,是人生发展应该避开的暗礁区,不宜于作为成功人生的定位。人生规划可以合理地分配你的精力。以下是人生规划设计的六个步骤。

步骤之一:发现或搞清楚你的主要人生目标是什么。

所谓主要人生目标(人生定位),应该是一个你终生所追求的固定的目标,你生活中其他的一切事情都围绕着它而存在。对于一些人来说,这个工作是一个自我发现的愉快的过程;但对于另一些人来说,它也许更是一个痛苦的过程。因为他们需要把其心绪拉回到年少的时代,在那个时候他们还没有对自己所怀抱的梦想产生疑惑。为了找到或找回你的人生主要目标,你可以问自己几个问题,比如“我是谁? " 、 " 我想在我的一生中成就何种事业? " 、 " 临终之时回顾往事,一生中最让我感到满足的是什么? " 、 " 在我的日常生活中是哪一类的成功最使我产生成就感? " 。

也许你很快就可以知道你的终极目标是什么,但是大多数人则不是这样的。他们在找到自己的终极目标之前往往需要在不同的场合对自己重复上面的这些或其他类似的问题。每一次向自己提出这样的问题的时候,随意地记下你的所得。开始的时候,它们可能没有什么意义,但是,多次的累积会让你茅塞顿开。

幸福的人通常是这样一类的人,即他的职业和生活方式与他的生活目标相一致。比如,一个有着很强组织意识、文字天赋和教诲倾向的人,就很可能从编辑、教师等职业生活中得到最大满足。

步骤之二:当你能够用一个简单的句子表达出你的人生目标了,那么你就该着手准备实现这项目标了。

在这方面,职业的选择就是你所要着重考虑的问题。你应该知道,职业是一个工具,是帮助实现你终极目标的工具。你规划自己的职业的重要性,就像将军筹划一场战役一样,也像一个足球教练确定一场重要比赛的作战方案一样。

你可以问自己: " 我的职业正在帮助我实现人生的最终目标吗? " 如果答案是否定的,那就干脆重新更换职业。倘若更换职业是不现实的,那你可再进一步问一下自己: " 是否有一种途径可以让我现有的职业与我的人生基本目标一致起来? " 对于第二个问题,答案常常是肯定的。例如,一个事业有成但又并不满足物质上富有的律师,他可能会利用他的部分精力做些公益事情并从中得到精神满足。又比如一个受雇于一家大公司的审计师可能会在工作之余到附近一所大学当兼职教授,从把实践经验概括成理论的讲授过程中得到他在日常枯燥工作中得不到的满足。

最理想的职业方面的人生规划,应该是在你从学校毕业之时就开始进行了的。在这个时候,只要你心中明确你的人生大目标,你就会知道你要选择或接受什么样的一份职业。毫无疑问,你会选择那份将有助于你实现人生目标的职业。

不过,我们也该切记:只要你还没有到安享晚年的地步,任何时候开始你的职业规划都不为晚。无论你是 20 岁左右刚刚踏上职业征程的年轻人,还是 40 岁左右并且陷在一份你不喜欢的工作之中的中年人,现在仍然是你进行职业规划的好时机。

步骤之三:在弄明白了你的职业将会帮助你实现人生更大目标之后,你应该着手考虑你的人生和职业规划中的具体细节了。

你需要有一个详细的个人职业发展计划。这个计划可以是一个五年的计划,也可以是一个十年、二十年的计划。不管是属于何种时间范围的计划,它至少应该能够回答如下问题: 1. 我要在未来 5 年、 10 年或 20 年内实现什么样的一些职业或个人的具体目标? 2. 我要在未来 5 年、 10 年或 20 年内挣到多少钱或达到何种程度的挣钱的能力? 3. 我要在未来 5 年、 10 年或 20 年内有什么样的一种生活方式?

对于这些问题的回答将给你提供一份有关你自己的短期目标的清单。在形成这些目标的过程中,不要纯粹地依靠逻辑思维。这一类的抉择,需要发挥你的创造力,应该把你的情绪、价值和信仰等因素全部调动起来。如果你是已婚者的话,你还需要考虑你的配偶的情绪、价值和信仰等,因为在任何的重要抉择中,他(她)总是影响你个人生活的一个部分。

步骤之四 : 在形成了上面的具体的短期的目标之后,你应该策划一下将如何去达成它们。

比如,你现在是一个中层的管理人员,你的 5 年、 10 年或 20 年个人职业发放规划要求你成为一个高级主管。那么,怎么才有可能实现你的目标呢?如果你能够回答好如下的各项问题,那么你就应知道自己该怎样做了。这些问题是: 1. 我需要哪些特别的训练才能使我够资格做一名高级主管? 2. 我该增加哪些书本知识? 3. 为使自己仕途坦荡,我需要排除哪些内部的政治上的障碍? 4. 我目前的上司在这方面是我的一个帮助还是一个障碍? 5. 在目前的这个公司我最终成为高级主管的可能性有多大?在这里的机会是否比在其他公司更大? 6. 得到这份职位者的一般教育程度、经验水平和年龄层次是怎样的?

步骤之五 : 行动。

这是所有步骤中最艰难的一个步骤,因为要求你停止梦想而切实地开始行动。我们知道良好的动机只是一个目标得以确立和开始实现的一个条件,但不是全部。如果动机不转换成行动,动机终归是动机,目标也只能停留在梦想阶段。要想实现人生的终极目标,有两个方面的陷阱需要谨慎避免,一个是懒惰,另一个是错误,哪怕是小的错误。懒惰是事业成功的天敌。

很多人不息地奋斗一辈子都没有能够完美地实现自己人生目标,更不用说懒惰者了。要想有一个无悔的人生,除了认准目标外,还要集中精力全力以赴。在实现人生终极目标的过程中,难免受到各种妨碍或各种诱惑,任何的闪失或偏差都会使你远离你的既定目标。然而,人非圣贤,谁人无过?只是在通往理想的艰难跋涉途中,尽可能少地犯错误。这样就可以尽可能快地达到你的目标。

步骤之六 : 不断地修改和更新你的人生和职业发展目标。

人生目标的确定往往是基于特定的社会环境和条件的。这样的环境和条件总在变化,确定了目标也应该做出修改和更新,况且这样的目标虽然写出来了,但是并未镶刻在石头上,它的存在只是为你的前进提供一个架构,指示一个方向。你是它的创造者,你可以在它看起来正把你引向歧途的任何时候更改它。
