Work and PleasureTo be really happy and really safe, one ought to have at least two or three hobbies, and they must all be real. It is no use starting late in life to say “I will take an interest in this or that.” Such an attempt only aggravates the strain of mental eft. A man may acquire great knowledge of topics unconnected with his daily work, and yet hardly get any benefit or relief. It is no use doing what you like; you have got to like what you do. Broadly speaking, human being may be divided into three classes those who are toiled to death, those who are worried to death, and those who are bored to death. It is no use offering the manual laborer, tired out with a hard week’s sweat and eft, the chance of playing a game of football or baseball on Saturday afternoon. It is no use inviting the politician or the professional or business man, who has been working or worrying about serious things six days, to work or worry about trifling things at the weekend.It may also be said that rational, industrious, useful human beings are divided into two classes first, those whose work is work and whose pleasure is pleasure; and secondly, those whose work and pleasure are one. Of these the mer are the majority. They have their compensations. The long hours in the office or the factory bring with them as their reward, not only the means of sustenance, but a keen appetite pleasure even in its simplest and most modest ms. But tune’s favored children belong to the second class. Their life is a natural harmony. them the working hours are never long enough. Each day is a holiday, and ordinary holidays when they come are grudged as enced interruptions in an absorbing vacation. Yet to both classes the need of an alternative outlook, of a change of atmosphere, of a diversion of eft, is essential. Indeed, it may well be that those whose work is their pleasure are those who most need the means of banishing it at intervals from their minds.工作和要想真正生活得幸福和平安,一个人至少应该有两三种业余爱好,而且必须是真正的爱好到了晚年才开始说“我要培养这个或那个兴趣”是毫无用处的,种这种尝试只会增加精神上的负担在与自己日常工作无关的领域中,一个人可以获得渊的知识,但却很难有所收益或得到放松做自己喜欢的事是无益的,你得喜欢自己所做的事广言之,人可以分为三个类别:劳累而死的人,忧虑而死的人和无聊而死的人对于那些体力劳动者来说,一周辛苦的工作使他们精疾力竭,在周六下午给他们提供踢足球或者打棒球的机会是没有意义的对于政界人士,专业人士或者商人来说,他们已经为棘手的事务操劳或者烦恼了六天,在周末请他们为琐事劳神同样毫无意义或者可以这么说,理智的,勤奋的,有用的人可以分为两类:对第一类人而言,工作就是工作,就是;对于第二类人而言,工作和是合二为一的很大一部分人属于前者他们可以得到相应的补偿在办公室或工厂里长时间的工作,不仅带给他们维持生计的金钱,还带给他们一种渴求的强烈欲望,哪怕这种消遣是以最简单,最淳朴的方式进行的而第二类人则是命运的宠儿他们的生活自然而和谐在他们看来,工作时间永远不够多,每天都是假期;而当正常的假日到来时,他们总会抱怨自己有趣的休假被强行中断然而,有一些东西对于这两类人来说都十分必要,那就是变换一下视角,改变一下氛围,尝试做点不同的事情事实上,那些把工作看作的人可能是需要以某种方式将工作不时地驱赶出自己的大脑 383

My grandparents believed you were either honest or you weren't. There was no in between. They had a simple motto hanging on their living-room wall "Life is like a field of newly fallen snow; where I choose to walk every step will show." They didn't have to talk about it – they demonstrated the motto by the way they lived.They understood instinctively that integrity means having a personal standard of morality and ethics that does not sell out to expediency and that is not relative to the situation at hand. Integrity is an inner standard judging your behavior. Untunately, integrity is in short supply today – and getting scarcer. But it is the real bottom line in every area of society. And it is something we must demand of ourselves.A good test this value is to look at what I call the Integrity Triad, which consists of three key principles 1.Stand firmly your convictions in the face of personal pressure. There's a story told about a surgical nurse's first day on the medical team at a well-known hospital. She was responsible ensuring that all instruments and materials were ed during an abdominal operation. The nurse said to the surgeon, "You've only remove sponges, and we sued . We need to find the last one. ""I removed them all," the doctor declared. "We'll close now.""You can't do that, sir," objected the rookie nurse. "Think of the patient." Smiling, the surgeon lifted his foot and showed the nurse the th sponge."You'll do just fine in this or any other hospital," he told her. When you know you're right, you can't back down..Always give others credit that is rightfully theirs. Don't be afraid of those who might have a better idea or who might even be smarter than you are.David Ogilvy, founder of the advertising firm Ogilvy amp; Mather, made this point clear of his newly appointed office head by sending each a Russian nesting doll with five progressively smaller figures inside. His message was contained in the smallest doll "If each of us hires people who are smaller than we are, we shall become a company of dwarfs. But if each of us hires people who are bigger than we are, Ogilvy amp; Mather will become a company of giants." And that is precisely that the company became – one of the largest and most respected advertising organizations in the world.3.Be honest and open about who you really are. People who lack genuine core values rely on external factors – their looks or status – in order to feel good about themselves. Inevitably they will do everything they can to preserve this faccedil;ade, but they will do every little to develop their inner value and personal growth.So be yourself. Don't engage in a personal cover-up of areas that are unpleasing in your life. When it's tough, do it tough. In other words, face reality and be adult in your responses to life's challenges. 188

The traditional holidays in our house when I was a child were spent timing elaborate meals around football games. My father tried to make pleasant chitchat and eat as much as he could during halftime. At Christmas he found time to have a cup or two of holiday cheer and do his holly-shaped bow tie1. But he didn't truly shine until Valentine's Day. I don't know whether it was because work at the office slowed during February or because the football season was over. But Valentine's Day was the time my father chose to show his love the special people in his life. Over the years I fondly thought of him as my “ Valentine Man.” My first recollection3 of the magic he could bring to Valentine's Day came when I was six. several days I had been cutting out valentines my classmates. Each of us was to decorate a “ mailbox ” and put it on our desk others to give us cards. That box and its contents ushered in5 a succession6 of bittersweet7 memories of my entrance into a world of popularity8 contests marked by the number of cards received, the teasing about boyfriendsgirlfriends and the tender care I gave to the card from the cutest boy in class. That morning at the breakfast table I found a card and a gift- wrapped package at my chair. The card was signed “ Love, Dad” , and the gift was a ring with a small piece of red glass to represent my birthstone9, a ruby. There is little difference between red glass and rubies to a child of six, and I remember wearing that ring with a pride that all the cards in the world could not surpass. As I grew older, the gifts gave way to heart shaped boxes filled with my favorite chocolates and always included a special card signed “ Love, Dad” .In those years my “ thank-yous” became more of a perfunctory response.The cards seemed less important, and I took granted the valentine that would always be there. Long past the days of having a “ mailbox” on my desk, I had placed my hopes and dreams in receiving cards and gifts from “ significant others” , and “ Love, Dad” just didn't seem quite enough. If my father knew then that he had been replaced, he never let it show. If he sensed any disappointment over valentines that didn't arrive me, he just tried that much harder to create a positive atmosphere, giving me an extra hug and doing what he could to make my day a little brighter. My mailbox eventually had a rural address, and the job of hand delivering candy and cards was relegated to the U.S.Postal Service. Never in ten years was my father's package late-- nor was it on the Valentine's Day eight years ago when I reached into the mailbox to find a card addressed to me in my mother's handwriting. It was the kind of card that comes in an inexpensive assortment box sold by a child going door-to-door to try to earn money a school project. It was the kind of card that you used to get from a grandmother or an aging aunt or, in this case, a dying father. It was the kind of card that put a lump in your throat and tears in your eyes because you knew the person no longer was able to go out and buy a real valentine. It was a card that signaled this would be the last you receive from him. The card had a photograph of tulips on the outside, and on the inside my mother had printed “ Happy Valentine's Day” . Beneath it, scrawled in barely legible18 handwriting, was “ Love, Dad” . His final card remains on my bulletin board today. It's a reminder of how special fathers can be and how important it had been to me over the years to know that I had a father who continued a tradition of love with a generosity of spirit, simple acts of understanding and an ability to express happiness over the people in his life. Those things never die, nor does the memory of a man who never stopped being my valentine.
