20歲之前不做 就會后悔的那些事

 

  Life is filled with regrets. Ask anyone around you what their regrets are and they usually have no difficulty coming up with many items on their “regret list。” And for some reason our twenties are ripe for a field of regrets.

  人生總是充滿遺憾。問問你周圍的人他們有沒有遺憾的事情,他們會輕而易舉的列出一大堆“遺憾清單”。由于某些原因,20多歲最容易犯錯的年紀。

  Perhaps it’s because as we get older we look back on that period of adulthood as the height of freedom and autonomy. As move into middle age, we look back and wish that we had made better choices and taken more opportunities. Here’s a list of things that we regret not doing in our 20s。

  也許是因為隨著年齡的增長,當我們再次回顧那段時光,會發現那是一段充滿自由和獨立的時光。隨著我們步入中年,我們經常希望:要是我們能再有更多選擇的機會多好!以下就列舉了一些如果我們在20來歲沒有做就會讓我們后悔的事情:

 

  1. Traveling more

  多旅行

  I regret not travelling more, and so does nearly everyone that I have asked. Before kids, and mortgages and marriages, when our commitments and expenses were lower, the opportunities for travel were much greater, but for some reason many of us thought we’d always have time for travel later。

  我后悔沒有到更多的地方去旅行,而且幾乎我問過的每個人都會這樣說。在有孩子之前、在抵押貸款和結婚之前,在我們需要承擔的責任和花銷較少時,正是旅游的大好機,但是由于種種原因,我們總覺得我們以后會有更多的時間去旅行。

  We dreamed of visiting the pyramids of Egypt, surfing off the Hawaiian coast, dining at a Parisian café, drinking espresso in Rome, trekking through the rainforest, and so much more. Sadly, many of us never made these journeys and the opportunity passed us by。

  我們夢想過去埃及看金字塔,在夏威夷海邊沖浪,在巴黎的咖啡館共進晚餐,在羅馬品嘗香濃的咖啡,徒步穿越熱帶雨林等等諸如此類的計劃?杀氖,大部分人都沒有付諸行動,只是看著機會白白溜走。

 

  2. Investing early

  早投資

  How many times have we kicked ourselves for not starting our 401Ks,in our twenties, for not putting our excess cash in long term investments, for not investing in our future early. No matter how much we try, we can never get back the head start that we missed. Playing catch up in our 40’s and 50’s is very difficult。

  多少次回想我們都恨不得踢自己一腳:為什么不在20來歲就開始401K(小編注:美國的一種養老金制度)計劃,為什么沒有將多余的現金用于長期 投資,為什么沒有早早的為我們未來投資。不管我們再怎么努力,錯過的時光都不會重來了。等到我們四五十歲的時候再奮起直追已為時已晚了。

 

  3. Being more responsible with spending

  更合理的安排支出

  In order to invest in our retirement or save for that down payment, we would have needed to make wiser financial spending choices. Things like buying or holding on to that perfectly reliable used car, instead of splurging on the new model…because we could, eating out less and saving for a house instead, buying fewer shoes and purses and clothes and paying off student loans sooner. So many saving opportunities lost, money spent on tangible things, instead of on the future。

  為了退休后的投資或房子的首付,我們需要更合理的理財。比如說買一輛不錯的二手車,而不是把錢浪費在新款車型上……我們也可以減少外出就餐,攢 錢買房子,少買點鞋子和衣服,提前還清助學貸款。這么多的攢錢機會都錯過了,我們用錢換來了很多實實在在的物品,卻沒有更多關注我們的未來。

 

  4. Better planning

  更好的規劃人生

  I regret not focusing more on where I wanted to go in life, what I wanted to do, who I wanted to be and what it would take to get there. With some more planning in our twenties, we’d be further ahead in our 40s and perhaps a bit happier as well。

  我后悔我沒有仔細思考我的人生道路,我想要做的事情,我想成為一個什么樣的人以及如何才能實現。如果在20多歲的時候我們能更好的規劃人生,我們在40多歲的時候就會更上一層樓,也許還會感覺到更幸福。

 

  5. Seizing more experiences

  更多的人生體驗

  I wish I had learned to ski and paint, speak Italian and do the Tango. I regret not living somewhere else before settling down. Others have said they regret not pursuing their hobbies or learning to sky dive or mountain climb. I prefer to stay on the ground, but I do regret not learning more, not trying new things that are hard to fit into the life of a forty something working wife and mother。

  我多希望我以前學會了滑雪、畫畫,會說意大利語,會跳探戈。我后悔在安定下來之前沒有在別的地方生活過。很多人也都和我一樣后悔沒有持之以恒的 培養自己的愛好,沒有學跳傘,沒有去爬山。我確實更喜歡務實,但也很后悔沒有去學更多的東西,沒有嘗試新事物,這些事物已經無法再融入一個40歲的全職妻 子加母親的生活中了。

 

  6. Living a more active lifestyle

  更積極向上的生活方式

  The bodies of youth are wasted on the young… I wish I had run a marathon before my knees ached, that I had biked more, hiked more, and took spinning classes when my legs were stronger. I regret not joining a softball team or volleyball league. We don’t often realize that we have squandered our physical abilities until things start aching and creaking。

  年輕的時候,我們肆意的揮霍著我們的青春活力……我多想在我膝關節疼痛之前能跑場馬拉松,多騎騎自行車、多走走看看,在腿腳強健的時候多騎騎動感單車。我后悔沒有參加壘球社團或排球聯盟?偸堑鹊襟w力透支病痛來襲,我們才意識到年輕時鍛煉的可貴。

 

  7. Making more friends

   交更多的朋友

  I regret not reaching out more, putting more effort into creating a tribe of support that would carry me through more difficult times. We socialize sure, but many of us don’t put enough importance on building deep and lasting friendships. Some do, many don’t and wish they had。

  我后悔沒有更多的伸出手去,沒有更努力去結交那么一伙兒可以陪我度過更多艱難時光的朋友。我們確實也有交際,但是大多數人并沒有把重心放在建立更深更持久的友情上面。一些人做到了,但是還有很人卻沒有,他們希望當初曾為友情努力過。

 

  8. Pursuing a more meaningful career

  追求一份更有意義的職業

  Many of us wish we had taken more career risks, opted for meaning over money, pursued the career path we wanted instead of what we were expected to do or simply following the path that was laid out before us. How much better to have explored our options and pursued meaningful work in our twenties than to have spent 20 years doing something we don’t love。

  大部分人都是聽從別人的期待去工作或者按照別人鋪好的路去走,而不愿冒更多的職業風險和遵循我們的內心去工作掙錢。比起20多年一直從事自己不喜歡的工作,能在20多歲時自己選擇并去追求一份更有意義的工作是多么的好!

  Life is good; don’t misunderstand. Few of us walk around every day pining for our youth, at least I hope not, but we do occasionally look back with a wistful sigh and wish that we planned more, lived more, and stretched ourselves more when we had the freedom and energy to do so。

  毋庸置疑,生活是美好的。很少有人每天四處走走緬懷我們的青春,但是我們確實會偶爾若有所思的邊嘆氣邊回憶:多么希望當我們身心自由和精力旺盛的時候,能有更多的計劃、更多的活法去擴展自己。
