蓋茨金句

 
Love him or hate him, he sure hits the nail on the head with this! Bill Gates recently gave a speech at a High School about 11 things they did not and will not learn in school. He talks about how feel-good, politically correct teachings created a generation of kids with no concept of reality and how this concept set them up for failure in the real world.
 
不管你喜不喜歡他,他以下的金句真是一針見血!微軟公司主席蓋茨最近到一家高校演講,提出了有十一件東西不會在學校中學到的。他說現在這種自我感覺良好,政治正確的教育方式培養了一代對世事毫無概念的孩子,並且註定他們將來在現實世界裡到處碰壁。
 
Rule 1: Life is not fair – get used to it!
 
第一條:人生並不公平 – 你要習慣這個事實。
 
Rule 2 : The world won’t care about your self-esteem. The world will expect you to accomplish something BEFORE you feel good about yourself.
 
第二條:這個世界不會關心你的自我價值。它期望你有所成就後才讓你有自豪感。
 
Rule 3 : You will NOT make $60,000 a year right out of high school. You won’t be a vice-president with a car phone until you earn both.
 
第三條:從高校出來,你不會馬上賺六萬美元年薪。也不會一下子成為一個擁有汽車電話的副總裁,两者都要你努力賺取的。
 
Rule 4 : If you think your teacher is tough, wait till you get a boss.
 
第四條:如果現在你覺得你的老師很嚴苛,當你將來有一個上司的時侯,才知道其實不然。
 
Rule 5 : Flipping burgers is not beneath your dignity. Your Grandparents had a different word for burger flipping: they called it opportunity.
 
第五條:做低下的工作不是沒有面子,你的祖父母輩稱這些下等工作為機會。
 
Rule 6: If you mess up, it’s not your parents’ fault, so don’t whine about your mistakes, learn from them.
 
第六條:如果你把事情搞砸了,並不是你父母的錯,因此不要自怨自艾,而要從錯誤中學習。
 
Rule 7: Before you were born, your parents weren’t as boring as they are now. They got that way from paying your bills, cleaning your clothes and listening to you talk about how cool you thought you were. So before you save the rain forest from the parasites of your parent’s generation, try delousing the closet in your own room.
 
第七條:在你出生前,你的父母並非像現在那樣呆板乏味。他們為了替你付帳單,為你洗衣服及聆聽你認為自己有多棒才變成現在這個樣子的。所以在試圖拯救你父母那一代長了寄生蟲的雨林前,先清理你自己房間衣櫃裡的蝨子。
 
Rule 8: Your school may have done away with winners and losers, but life HAS NOT. In some schools, they have abolished failing grades and they’ll give you as MANY TIMES as you want to get the right answer. This doesn’t bear the slightest resemblance to ANYTHING in real life.
 
第八條:你的學校可能已經沒有了勝負制度,但人生中還存勝負之分。有些學校已經廢除了不及格等級並且給你多次機會讓你填上正確的荅案。但在現實生活中完全不是這樣的。
 
Rule 9: Life is not divided into semesters. You don’t get summers off and very few employers are interested in helping you FIND YOURSELF. Do that on your own time.
 
第九條:人生是不分學期的。没有暑假而且極少僱主有興趣幫你找尋自我。你得在自己的時間內去尋找。
 
Rule 10: Television is NOT real life. In real life people actually have to leave the coffee shop and go to jobs.
 
第十條:電視不是真實生活。真實生活中人們都要離開咖啡廳去應付工作。
 
Rule 11: Be nice to nerds. Chances are you’ll end up working for one.
 
第十一條:記得要善待書呆子,你大有可能最終要為其中一個賣命的。
