福布斯:林书豪教你“等待爆发”

林书豪的NBA风暴席卷了全美,就连福布斯也在主页上刊登了一篇“10 Lessons Jeremy Lin Can Teach Us Before We Go To Work Monday Morning”。就如同我之前一篇博客所说的,这个“一夜成名”的华裔小子确有让我们值得深思的地方。

1. Believe in yourself when no one else does. Lin’s only the 3rd graduate from Harvard to make it to the NBA.  He’s also one of only a handful of Asian-Americans to make it. He was sent by the Knicks to play for their D-League team 3 weeks ago in Erie, PA.  He’d already been cut by two other NBA teams before joining the Knicks this year.  You’ve got to believe in yourself, even when no one else does.

信念。相信是“金子总会发光的”。但这并不代表觉得是“天才”,然后就等着天上掉金子砸中你的脑袋,即使是天才樱木,不也是不断练习才最终和流川枫完成对山王工业的绝杀么?

2. Seize the opportunity when it comes up. Lin got to start for the Knicks because they had to start him.  They had too many injuries.  Baron Davis was gone.  The other point guards were out.  Carmelo Anthony was injured.  Amare Stoudemire had to leave the team because of a family death.  Lin could have squandered the opportunity and we would have never have noticed.  But he made the most of it.  You never know when opportunities are going to arise in life.  Often, they’re when you least expect them.  Make the most of them. Don’t fritter them away.

其实,林书豪故事最让人深思的地方在于:给他一个机会,他就能立刻展现出实力。当初德安东尼自己也说,只是因为林书豪的临时工合同马上到期,因此需要给他一点时间看看到底有没有资格管理饮水机。但他就抓住这么一个机会,立刻爆发出来。反观阿联呢?机会来的时候,真的随时准备好了么?

3. Your family will always be there for you, so be there for them. It wasn’t until a few days ago that Lin got his contract guaranteed by the Knicks for the rest of the season.  Before that, he could have been cut at any time.  He had to sleep on his brother’s couch on the Lower East Side to get by.  His family always believed in him and picked him up when he could have gotten down on himself.  That made him continue to believe.  If you want your family to believe in you like that, you’ve got to be there for them too when they need it.

家人是自己永远坚强的后盾,永远不要忘记家人。可见,即使在美国,家庭的观念同样很重要,相反在中国很多人却觉得“少小离家,老大不回”是现代生活趋势......

4. Find the system that works for your style.Lin isn’t Michael Jordan or Kobe Bryant.  He’s not a pure scorer.  He’s a passer and distributor – who can also score very well.  It didn’t work for him in Golden State or Houston – where he was before landing at the Knicks.  But Mike D’Antoni’s system at the Knicks has been perfect for him to show off his strengths.  You’ve got to do your best to understand what your strengths are and then ensure that you’re in a system (a job or organization or industry) that is a good fit for those strengths.  Otherwise, people overlook the talents you bring to the table.

机遇存在环境之中。金子到底是不是会发光也取决于它到底是不是还埋在地里。但说实话,环境或者境遇这种事件我们很难去控制。有时候,还是取决于运气而已。林书豪当初并没有资格去挑选球队。当然,在这个夏天,恐怕他应该可以考虑下了。不过纽约的炮轰打法,还是挺适合他。我非常看好他成为下一个Nash。

5. Don’t overlook talent that might exist around you today on your team. You probably manage people at your own company today.  Are you sure you don’t have a Jeremy Lin living among you now?  How do you know that “Mike” couldn’t do amazing things if you gave him a new project to run with?  How do you know “Sarah” isn’t the right person to take the open job in London that you’ve been talking over with your colleagues?  We put people around us in boxes.  He’s from Harvard.  He’s Asian-American.  Not sure he can play.  How many assumptions have you made about talent around you?  Don’t be like the General Managers in Golden State and Houston, and let talent slip through your fingers.  With all their money, scouts, and testing, they didn’t have a clue what they had in their hands.  Do you know what your people (or even yourself) is really capable of?  Take off the blinders of assumptions you wear when you look at the world.

不要轻视团队里的天才,这点对于管理者尤为重要。能够进入一个具有实力的团队,每个人都会有相应的长处。如何把每个人的潜力发挥出来,这就非常考验经理人的能力了。接下去如何协调林书豪和毒瓜的球权,就是德安东尼需要展现管理能力的时候了。

6. People will love you for being an original, not trying to be someone else. You’ve got to be you.  You can’t be some 2nd rate copy of Michael Jordan.  There will never be another Michael Jordan.  Just be Jeremy Lin — yourself.  Whatever that is.  That doesn’t mean you don’t work hard — it just means you find what you’re good at and do it.  Fans will love you for being you, just like they love Jeremy Lin.  Judy Garland said it best:“Always be a first-rate version of yourself, instead of a second-rate version of somebody else.”

学我者生,仿我者死。这是追求个性的时代,别人的尊重来自于对“自己”的认可,不会是因为自己去可以模仿别人。每个人都与众不同,没有必要去可以copy别人的成功或者幸福方式,但是可以去学、去思考别人为什么成功,然后用自己的方式去实现目标。Always be yourself。这句话我在很多地方都听到过。

7. Stay humble. If you one day are lucky enough to have newspapers want to put you on the cover in order to sell more, don’t let it get to your head.  It’s been remarkable watching how humble Lin remains through all this media frenzy.  It makes his teammates and fans love him that much more.

谦逊。这个是美国人最为缺乏的,这也是为何林书豪会突然间得到美国人的尊重。他没有被突来的成功沾沾自喜。这个取决于性格。而更重要的是,要知道自己几斤几两,知道自己的终极目标在哪里,而不沉溺于短期目标的实现。

8. When you make others around you look good, they will love you forever. I didn’t know how good Tyson Chandler was, until I saw him playing with Jeremy Lin.  Lin has set Chandler up many times over the last week for easy dunks because he drew the defense and then passed the ball.  That’s partly why the Knicks are playing so well.  They are all working harder to share the ball with others.  And it’s beautiful to watch.  And when the media swarms Lin, he tells them how good his teammates are.  Do the same with your peers and reports.

团队篮球,这是林书豪的打法,这也是为何教练和队友都喜欢他的原因。虽然他个人得分可以达到20+,但是他给别人创造的机会更加数不胜数,昨天打森林狼让诺瓦克彪进扳平的3分球就是个最好的例子。让身边的人同样受益,才会得到别人的喜爱和支持。

9. Never forget about the importance of luck or fate in life. Some people believe in God, some in destiny, some in luck.  Whatever you believe in, be grateful for it.

运气,这个真的太虚幻了。林书豪信仰上帝,而现在他肯定更加虔诚。

10. Work your butt off. Lin couldn’t have seized his opportunity if he hadn’t worked like crazy for years perfecting his skills.  There are no short cuts to hard work.  Success is a by product of that.  If you’ve got a Tiger Mom who’s always pushed you to work hard, great.  If not, let your conscience be your own Tiger Mom!  Get up early, stay up late.  Nobody gave Lin any free passes. Why should you get any?  You can only control what you control and that means you’ve got to work harder than anyone else you know.

没有天才是可以不通过努力就获得成功的。道理很简单。一份汗水不一定等于一份收获,但没有汗水,恐怕半点收获都不一定有。
