我还剩下多少时间
How much time do I have left,
另外我对时间的利用合理吗
and have I spent it properly?
这些都是我们最终要问自己的问题
These are questions that we all eventuallyask ourselves.
对时间的思考在许多方面都是对死亡的思考
To think about time is, in many ways, to think about mortality,
没有比面对自我毁灭更难的事情了
and there’s nothing more difficult to face than our own destruction.
但是面对的最困难的问题
But the most difficult problems to face
往往也是最值得解决的事情
are often the ones most worth solving.
如果我们能学会勇敢地面对时间
If we can learn to face time courageously,
还有什么不能面对的呢
what can’t we face?
如果我们能克服所有的恐惧
If we can overcome the fear of all fears,
还有什么不能克服的呢
what can’t we overcome?
在这个视频里 我想分享
In this video, I want to share
哲学家塞内卡看待时间的三种方式
with you three ways of seeing time—from the Stoic philosopher
塞内卡的观点——我觉得很有用
Seneca’s point of view—that I found useful.
塞内卡首先把时间视作金钱
Seneca starts by viewing time as money.
我来问大家一个问题:
Let me ask you a question:
多少钱算多呢
how much money is a lot?
是十万美元 一百万美元
Is it $ 100 000,is it $ 1 000 000,
还是十亿美元呢
or maybe $ 1 000 000 000?
塞内卡会说 答案实际上在于携带它的人
Seneca would say that the answer actually lies within the person who carries it
而不是金钱本身
and not within the money itself.
当我们有一定量的金钱时
When we have a certain amount of money,
我们不得不选择把钱投到什么地方
we have to choose where to invest it.
例如 我们可以把钱放进银行
For example, we can put it into a bank,
用于炒股 做生意 买东西
a stock, a business, a good,
或是服务 并且一些投资比另一些好
or a service, and some investments are better than others.
我们可以以带来更多财富或快乐的方式投资
We can invest money in ways the brings us more wealth or joy.
反过来说
On the flip side,
我们也可以以带来较少的财富或欢乐进行投资
we can invest money in ways that bring us less wealth or joy.
正因如此
Because of this,
很难说多少钱算多
it’s hard to say how much money is a lot.
对不知道如何聪明地投资的人来说
For a person who doesn’t know how to wisely invest their money,
多少都不够
no amount will be enough.
他们从不积累财富或寻找乐趣 因为他们不会花钱
They’ll never accumulate wealth or find joy because they spend it poorly.
但是 把钱交给一个聪明人
But, give money to a wise person,
他们总是能最大限度地利用它
and they can always make the most of it.
塞内卡说时间也是一样
Seneca says that time is the same way.
一个好的投资者总是能充分利用时间
A good investor can always make the most out of any amount of time.
在这种观点看来 生命在任何绝对意义上都称不上短暂
In this view, life isn’t short in any absolute sense.
相反地 它的长度实际在于
Instead, it’s length is really a function
我们选择度过它的方式
of how we choose to spend it.
人们可能会问“我们投资时间的正确方式是什么”
One might ask, “what’s the right way toinvest our time?”
在那之前 我要呈现给大家第二幅图像
Before we get to that, let me present you with the second image.
把时间想象成一条河
Imagine time as a river.
我们被水流推着向前
We’re carried along by its current,
最终时间到达了终点
and eventually, it’ll come to an end.
我们不知道自己走了多远
We have no idea how long we’ll be carried for
因为我们不知道河流在哪里结束
because we have no idea where the river ends.
无论你喜欢与否 河流都会继续载着你
Whether you like it or not, the river will continue to carry you.
它一直在流动 不管你对此作何感想
It continues to flow regardless of how youfeel about it.
塞内卡提醒我们 不要牺牲当下的每一刻担心未来
Seneca reminds us not to sacrifice every present moment worrying about the future.
我们无法确定什么时候到达终点
We can’t be certain when we’ll meet our end,
所以 为不曾到来的未来牺牲当下是种耻辱
so it would be a real shame to sacrifice every present moment for a future one thatnever comes.
未来是不确定的 但是现在是有保证的
The future is uncertain, but the present isguaranteed.
让生命的每一刻都完整并且享受当下
Let each moment be complete in itself and enjoy the flow.
现在我们有两幅图了: 金钱和河流
So,now we have two images: money and a river.
时间在流逝且终会被花掉
Time is flowing, and it must be spent,
但是我们应该把时间花在哪儿呢
but where should we spend it?
想象你有一桶水和一套杯子
Imagine that you are given a bucket of water and a set of cups.
你必须选择把水倒进哪个杯子里
You must choose which cups to pour the waterinto.
这桶水代表你生命中的时间
The bucket of water represents the time that you are given in life.
每个杯子代表着一件事:
Each cup represents an event:
一件你此刻可以做的事情
a thing you could do in the present moment.
当你把水倒进一个杯子 你就有了一个记忆
When you pour the water into a cup, you create a memory.
我们看待自己生活的方式往往来自我们的记忆
How good we perceive our lives to be often depends on our memories.
好的回忆 好的生活
Good memories, good life.
坏的回忆 坏的生活
Bad memories, bad life.
我们应该把水倒进哪个杯子呢
Which cups should we pour our water into?
我们应该把我们的时间用在哪儿呢
Where should we spend our time?
我们应该创造什么样的回忆呢
What memories should we create?
塞内卡认为大多数杯子都浪费了时间
Seneca argues that most cups are a waste oftime.
它们都是糟糕的投资 因为它们最终会腐烂
They’re bad investments because they’lldecay over time
杯子会裂开
the glass will crack,
水会流出来 并且我们回首时会意识到
the water will leak out, and we’ll look back and realize
我们浪费了自己的时间
that we’ve spent our time poorly.
换句话说 我们创造了坏的回忆
In other words, we’ve created bad memories.
对那些把水倒进终究会裂开的杯子里的人
No amount of water is enough
再多的水也不够
for the person who pours it into glasses that will crack
因为无论他们什么时候想喝水
because whenever they go to drink it,
都会发现(杯子里)什么也没留下
they find that nothing is left.
对塞内卡来说 唯一不会腐烂的杯子是哲理:
The only cup that will not decay, for Seneca,is philosophy:
对美德 真理 生活和死亡的探究
the study of virtue, truth, life and death.
可能世界上除了真理一切都会腐烂
Everything in the world decays expect for maybe truth
哲学家寻求关于世界的现状和我们该如何行动的真相
The Philosopher seeks truth about the way the world is and how we ought to act.
塞内卡认为追随哲学家的道路
Seneca argues that following the path of the Philosopher
是我们利用时间最好的方式
is the best way to spend our time
因为这是我们把水倒进不会腐烂杯子的最好机会
because it’s the best chance we have at pouring our water into cups that won’t decay.
对于塞内卡 生命本身并不短暂
For Seneca, life is not short in itself
而在于我们选择怎样去度过
but in how we choose to spend it
把我们的时间花在当下的每一刻最好的方式
and the best way to spend our time in each present moment,
就是对真理和美德的追求
is in the pursuit of truth and virtue.
换句话说 使用时间的最好方式就是让它成为永恒
In other words, the best way to spend our time is in becoming timeless.
