Finish It

2019-08-14

三周前花 99 块报了一个 21 天名人演说的课。内容质量一般般,但说实话质量不是关键,坚持下来才是。之所以能坚持下来,一大原因是为了返学费。真是不能小看「损失厌恶」的力量。

不过这 21 天里还是断了一天,为了挽回 99 块学费,厚着脸皮推荐燃哥买课,以转介绍的方式补上了这节缺课。起初没想厚下脸皮来麻烦燃哥,但又觉得这样放弃太没点血性了,咬着牙也要 finish it!

演讲课程中感触深的几句话,摘录了下来:

Ideas don’t come fully formed. They only become clear as you work on them. You just have to get started. — Mark Zuckerberg

So why do I talk about the benefits of failure? Simply because failure meant a stripping away of inessential. I stopped pretending to myself that I was anything other than what I was, and began to direct all my energy into finishing the only work that mattered to me. — J.K. Rowling

You might never fail on the scale I did, but some failure in life is inevitable. It is impossible to live without failing at something, unless you live so cautiously that you might as well not have lived at all — in which case, you fail by default. — J.K. Rowling

If you step up, without fear of failure. If you talk and listen to each other, without fear of rejection. If you act with decency and kindness, even when no one is looking, even if it seems small or inconsequential, trust me, the rest will fall into place. — Tim Cook

For me, the most important thing in your life is to live your life with integrity and not to give in to peer pressure to try to be something that you’re not, to live your life as an honest and compassionate person, to contribute in some way. — Ellen DeGeneres

The heaviness of being successful was replaced by the lightness of being a beginner again, less sure about everything. It freed me to enter one of the most creative periods of my life. — Steve Jobs
