免费疗法:为什么你应该写一本书

Free Therapy: Why You Should Write a Book | Lucy Whichelo | TEDxMcGill

Who here remembers hearing the term “right off” to describe 2020 at the start of
在座的有谁听过用词组“马上”
the pandemic? I know I did.
描述2020年疫情初期的?我听过
I saw it on Instagram, Facebook, LinkedIn, Twitter… you name it.
在疫情初期 我在Instagram 领英 推特等
When COVID first entered the scene,
你想得到的平台上都见到了
I was in my last year at university and with classes going online,
我当时是大学四年级 在线上课
I found myself with a lot of extra downtime that
我发现自己有很多空余时间
I wasn’t too sure what to do with. So, I’m sure many of you can relate.
不知道该做什么 我相信你们中的很多人也有同样的感受
At first, I thought “huh, this is a great excuse to sit back, relax,
一开始 我认为这是一个放松的好理由
watch Netflix, scroll through tick tock…”
看看电视剧 刷刷抖音
And I did,
我的确这样做了
for a little bit.
一会会
Then I got bored. Can I really do that for so long.
接着我感到无聊 我真的能长时间这么做吗
So I looked back at that and I thought:
于是我回想之前做的事 对自己说
“Do I really want to look back and see that I wasted my days away?
未来的我会希望我虚度光阴吗
No, I don’t want my 2020 to be a write-off”.
不 我不想我的2020化为泡影
And so I decided to change the story and I wrote my own.
于是我想改变 写下自己的故事
I decided to apply to a wonderful program
我决定申请加入一个不错的项目
that helps aspiring authors write and publish their own books.
它鼓励作者写下并出版他们自己的书
I pitched a book idea, was accepted into the program
我曾提出了一个关于书的提议 被该项目接纳
and then worked with some wonderful editors
我还和一群很不错的编者
and coaches who helped me put my book out there.
一群帮我出书的导师一起工作
But today I’m not going to be telling you about my book,
但今天我要和你们说的不是我的书
but rather, my book writing process, my journey, what I learned,
而是关于我写书的过程 出版图书的过程以及收获
how it helped me grow as a person, and ultimately,
这些是怎么帮助我成长 最后说说
why you should write a book too.
为什么你也应该写书
Now, before I start, I want to start with a little survey,
现在 在我开始之前 我想先做一个小调查
so who here – raise your hand if you think that you consider yourself to be
在座的各位 如果你们觉得自己是个作家
a writer. Raise your hand.
请举起你们的手
OK, I feel like maybe four or five hands, not very many of you.
好的 我想应该有四五个人 不多
Not bad, not bad, but not enough because you can pick up a pen,
不错 但不够 因为你们拿起一支笔
or now that we’re in the 21st century, get your hands on a keyboard,
或者 既然我们生活在21世纪 你们可以拿起键盘
you can be a writer. Now, I don’t mean that you’ll be
就能成为作家 我不是说你能成为
a five-star New York Times bestseller. We can’t all be that. I’m not either.
优秀的纽约时报畅销书作者 不是人人都能做到 我也不行
But that doesn’t matter, because you don’t have to be the best,
但这不重要 因为不是成为最好的
most amazing writer to be able to enjoy the benefits of writing a book.
最惊艳的作家才能享受写书带来的好处
You just have to write one. So what are the benefits?
你只需写一本书 那么好处是什么呢
Well, first of all, the process of writing a book forces you to be curious.
首先 写作的过程强迫你有好奇心
And no, contrary to popular belief, curiosity didn’t kill the cat.
与俗语相反 好奇心不会害死猫
In fact, it made the cat happier.
事实上 好奇心让猫更开心了
Studies have shown that there is a link between curiosity and dopamine.
研究表明好奇心与多巴胺有一定联系
So that means that people who are curious tend to have lower levels of anxiety,
也就意味着有好奇心的人更不易焦虑
lower levels of depression and have a better overall psychological well-being.
不易低落 并且总体上有更健康的心态
Furthermore, being curious helps expand our knowledge when we learn new things,
再者 好奇可以在我们学习新事物时帮我们拓宽知识
explore new ideas and pursue knowledge,
迸发新思潮 激发对知识的渴求
we end up having a better understanding of the world around us.
最终我们也能更了解世界
When I was doing the research for my book, I, you know,
当我为我的书做调查时 我
looked at hundreds and hundreds of articles, books, blog posts, everything.
看了不计其数的文章 书 推文等等
And it was great because I ended up absorbing all this information,
这很不错 因为我最终获取了所有信息
kind of like a sponge.
像海绵一样
And now I have a tiny little box back my brain filled with fun facts
现在我脑中有一个小盒子 里面充满趣事
and tidbits of information that I can pull out,
以及我可以用上的少量信息
one, when a conversation gets dull,
第一 因为它能在话题变无聊时帮助我
but two, to help use as context when I’m learning new things and
第二 它能在我学习新事物时作为前提
so you end up having a self fulfilling cycle of knowledge where
于是最终你就有了一个自我进化的知识循环
the more you learn, the more you can learn more. If that makes any sense.
你学习的越多 就有越多知识可学 这是可以理解的
Most importantly, however, in my opinion,
然而 在我看来 好奇心增强了我们同理心
is the way in which curiosity improves our empathy.
这才是是最重要的
So, when we are curious about new people and new ideas,
那么 当我们对新的人和新主意感到好奇
we end up expanding our social circle to include them,
我们最终会扩大交友圈来接纳他们
and we end up gaining a better understanding
我们最终也能得到更好的认知
and being better able to connect with people whose ideas, values,
更容易和思想 价值观
perspectives and life are different than ours.
视角和生活与我们不同的人交流
And I think that’s something we can all agree
我认为这是我们都能认可的
the world needs a little more of today.
当今世界更需要的事物
Secondly, the process of writing a book gives you purpose.
第二 写书的过程给了你目标
It is so easy to get lost in the mundane day-to-day to-do list of life.
我们很容易迷失在单调的被计划的生活中
And so having a passion project on the side,
因此有热爱的事可做
like writing a book,
能给你一种自我激励之感
helps give you a sense of self-empowerment and control over your life.
让你掌控生活 比如写书
We’re not made to spend our lives at our jobs or, if you’re in school, studying.
我们并非生来就要把一生用在工作上 (如果是学生就是学习)
We’re meant to have a life that is rich and full, where we create, grow, learn,
我们生来是为了有一个富有充实的生活 可以创作 成长和学习
explore outside of those things.
探索外界的新事物
When I was reading all those blog posts and articles that I mentioned earlier,
当我在看之前提到的推文和文章时
I found myself staying up until two or three o’clock in the morning,
我发现我熬夜到凌晨两三点
completely immersed in what I was learning in,
完全沉浸在我的学习中
and I would wake up the next morning,
我会在第二天早上醒来
talk to my roommate and complain that my book
和我的室友聊天 抱怨我的书
and sleep deprivation was giving me gray hairs.
和睡眠不足让我熬白了头发
But I wouldn’t have stayed up until 3:00 a.m. if I didn’t want to.
但如果我不想 我不会熬夜到三点
I did it because I really enjoyed what I was learning.
我这么做是因为我真的享受我学习的东西
That feeling of momentum and immersion you get when you’re fully focused
那种在完全专注于热爱的事物时所获得的
on something that you love… Unbeatable.
动力与沉浸的感觉是无法抵抗的
Moreover, writing a book is your small contribution to the world.
另外 写书是你对世界的小贡献
Each one of you has unique thoughts, interesting ideas,
你们每个人都有独特的思维 有趣的想法
cool experiences that you can and should share with the world.
有趣的经历 你可以且应该向分享世界
Be ashamed to waste it.
浪费可耻
Last but not least, the process of writing a book helps you gain confidence.
最后但并非最不重要 写书的过程能让你更自信
There is nothing better than being able to set yourself a challenge
没有比接受一个挑战并应付自如
and rise to the occasion and succeed.
然后挑战成功更能增强信心的事了
And when I say “succeed”, I don’t mean that there won’t be
我说的成功不是说途中没有任何
any hiccups or bumps along the way.
困难险阻
In fact, better if there are.
事实上 有挫折会更好
Makes a success so much sweeter.
它让成功更能使人满足
When I offered my first draft of my book to my editors, I was very proud of it,
我把书的初稿发给我的编辑们时 我很自豪
I had worked very hard.
我很努力地写那本书
So I gave it to them and I said “here’s my first draft of my book”.
所以我发给他们并说“这是我的书的初稿”
And they came back to me and they said “Great job,
然后他们回复我说“好样的”
but, if you want us to publish you,
“但如果你想让我们出版”
you’re going to have to write a part two
“你得写第二部分”
and a part three
“和第三部分”
and you’re going to have to have some more fun stories,
“你还要有很多更有趣的故事”
less research, more personality.
“少些研究 多点个性”
Part two and part three? I had just spent months
第二部分和第三部分?我花了几个月
just doing the research for part one.
只做了第一部分的研究
How on earth was I going to come up with enough content
那我到底怎样才能在仅仅最后两个月
for part two and a part three with just two months
为第二第三部分添加内容
before my next deadline was due?
写出第二 三部分
Well, it turns out that you can do anything when you want it enough
事实证明只要你的欲望更强烈 而且有一个很紧迫的截稿期
and when you have a tight enough deadline
那么你能做到任何事情
and all of you, university students who have written a paper
在截稿期的前一天赶论文的大学生们
the day before it’s due, you know this is true.
你们知道这是真的
That’s what gives you confidence:
能增强你信心的事就是:
having hurdles, having bumps,
经历了曲折苦难
having tight deadlines… then being able to overcome them
经历了紧迫的截止日期……然后克服它们
and come out on the other side.
并顺利通过
Writing my book taught me that.
写书教会了我这个道理
Writing my book forced me to trust myself and my capabilities
写书迫使我相信自己和自己的能力
and have faith that I can accomplish whatever I want,
并让我有能达到目标的信念
as long as I put my mind to it.
只要我足够用心
Ultimately, writing a book is a journey of self-growth, enlightenment,
最后 写书是自我成长 指导 启迪的旅程
illumination, to stay in line with today’s theme. Thank you.
这就是今天的主题 谢谢大家
