爱因斯坦说过:

“Not everything that counts can be counted and not everything that's counted truly counts.”

“并非所有重要的东西都计算得清楚,也不是所有计算得清楚的东西都重要。


可是,现实中,我们看到,很多人并没有按照“校长们”的完美剧本出演,却还是活得很精彩。有人按照别人的期待而活,结果却未必尽如人意。


生活是多元的,每个人的生命轨迹都是独一无二的。你的生活不该由别人的版图来决定,你也有自己的时间表。所以,放耐心点。活出自己的价值感,才是真正的成功。



教你玩一个游戏吧


拿出纸来

在上面画一条横线

在左边的起点上写上“0”代表出生

在右边的终点上

写下自己打算活到的岁数代表死亡 

再在横线上画出自己现在年龄的坐标

然后在已经活过的日子里

写下自己做过的最出色的事情

在还没有活过的日子里

写下今后最想做的三件事
