拉尔夫·沃尔多·爱默生说,“社会是一个浪潮,波浪向前移动,但它所组成的水没有。”掌握了生命中最有价值的技能,你才不会被动前进,拥有主动权。那么有哪些能一直有用的技能呢?今天的日常英语来看看Quora(美国版知乎)上网友们都分享了哪些技能吧~

Quora:这辈子最有价值的技能

1.网友Auren Hoffman:

The most important thing is to be different from others. Do something better than anyone else in the world that's useful to others (even if what you do best has a very tiny niche). Being able to do something that 100 million other people can do, while potentially important, is likely not nearly as valuable as having a skill that is unique.

最重要的事情就是与众不同。在某个领域成为世界上的佼佼者并成为对他人有某些用处的人(就算你做得最好的事情在别人看来也许不值一提)。能做一些普通人都会做的事,这可能不像拥有独特技能那样有价值。

Of course, certain unique skills will have more value than others. But it is hard to know which skills will and will not have long-term value since the world will change.

当然,特定的独特技能也确实比其它技能更有价值。但鉴于世界不断在变化,因此人们很难知道某些技能是否会有长期价值。

One easy way to create a unique skill is to combine two seemingly unrelated skills into one skill. Being the best computer scientist in the world is really hard. Being the person who knows the most about dolphins is really hard. But being the person who best knows about the intersection of software and dolphins is accomplishable. You might end up writing the best software that tracks dolphins. Or you might use your knowledge of how dolphins communicate over long distances to change the way humans communicate.

创造独特技能的一个简单方法是将两个看似不相干的技能融合成一个。成为世界上最好的计算机科学家真的非常难。成为世界上最了解海豚的人也非常难。但成为世界上同时最了解计算机和海豚的人非常具有挑战性。最终你也许能写出最好的海豚追踪软件。或许你也能利用你对海豚如何远距离沟通来改变人类沟通的方式。

The ability to learn. Being able to learn new concepts quickly and being able to learn from your mistakes are critical to living. Or the ability to communicate. It doesn't matter what you choose to do with your life, being able to communicate well will always put you at the top of the pile. Other people might be smarter than you, but if you can explain it better than them you will always win.

学习能力。能快速地学习新概念并快速地从你的失误中吸取经验对生存至关重要。或者沟通能力。不论你选择做什么,拥有良好的沟通能力会永远让你脱颖而出。其他人可能会比你聪明,但如果你能比他们更好地阐述自己的观点那么你将永远成为赢家。

Self-discipline is the only ability you need to master other skills or develop other habits.

自律是你掌握其它技能或养成其它习惯所需的唯一能力。

I often see people plagiarising around and say that they don't have other people smart or strong to get what they want in life. The truth is that as long as you are disciplined and have incredible perseverance, you can acquire any skill.

我常常看到有人四处剽窃,并说他们没有其他人聪明或强壮来获得他们在生活中想要的东西。事实是,只要足够自律且拥有惊人的毅力,那么你可以获取任何技能。

Throughout the year, we all have plans. Some people want to get a good figure and decide to get up at 5 o'clock in the morning. Some people hope that they can become good at speaking and socializing in the big crowd this year. It is our own that prevents us from accomplishing these goals. Our hearts prevent us from waking up early or meeting new people. If we are self-disciplined, then we can press this voice and live our own lives.

这一整年来,我们所有人都有计划。有些人想要获得好身材,决定早上5点起来跑步;而有些人希望这一年能变得擅长在大庭广众之下说话和交际。阻止我们完成这些目标的正是我们自己。我们内心阻止我们早醒或认识新朋友。如果我们足够自律,那么我们就能压下这种声音,过着由我们自己来支配的生活。

I know it's hard for people to learn self-discipline. But if you start learning today and make a little progress every day, then you will eventually control your mind and your body.

我知道人们很难学会自律。可如果你从今天开始学习,每天进步一点点,那么你最终将掌控你的思想和你的身体。
