内容提要:时刻提醒自己:我在做什么?为什么做?

Why do you do what you do?

你为什么要做手头上的事呢?

It’s a serious question and one you’re likely not asked all that often.

这是一个很严肃的问题,但也是一个你不会经常问自己的问题。

Take a look at what you do each day and ask yourself “why am I doing this?”

看一下你每天都在做些什么然后问问自己:我做这些是为了什么?

On a typical day I’m up with my kids, playing with them, tending to them, teaching them. Why do I do it? Because I love them, I want them to have our values, I want to teach them and I want to experience what it’s like to be a mom. I could choose to go back to a job outside of the home and earn a fairly good income, but I choose to stay home because it just feels like the right thing to do … for me. I realize that this isn’t a luxury a lot of people have despite wanting it and believe me when I say

I am grateful for being able to stay at home with my kids.

有一天,我抱起我的小孩,和他们一块玩耍,照顾着他们,教育他们。我不禁想:我为什么做这些事情呢?因为我爱他们,我想他们能够拥有我们的价值观,我想教导他们并且通过这些去感受作为妈妈的经历。我可以选择回去工作,而且会有一份相当好的收入,但是我选择留在家里因为我感觉这就是我要做的。我也意识到这并不是一件奢侈的东西,很多人都有,尽管很多人口里都喊着想要这样的生活,相信我,我很感激能够呆在家里和我的小孩在一起。

I write. Why? Because it allows me to get in touch with my creative side, something I didn’t get to do too often when I was heavily embedded in the sciences. Writing helps me gather and focus my thoughts. It allows me to.

我写作。为什么?因为写作激起了我的创造灵感,这些灵感不是我坚信自然科学就能够获得的。写作让我收集灵感、专注于我的思维上,它给了我这样的契机。

I coach/consult people. Why? Because it allows me to work in a way that I’m passionate about, I am able to contribute financially to my family, and it’s helping me get closer to my goal of personally funding 2 children’s wishes for the Children’s Wish Foundation. Since one of my son’s is a wish kid this is near and dear to me and at $20K a wish I have a VERY long way to go. But I don’t doubt I’ll get there in my lifetime.

我是顾问。为什么?因为这份工作是我的激情所在。通过这份工作,我不但可以支持家庭,我也朝我的目标更近了一步:为儿童愿望基金会资助两名儿童,帮他们实现愿望。我最亲爱的儿子也是个爱许愿的孩子,所以虽然帮每个儿童实现愿望需要2万美金,我得花很久才能实现,但是我坚信在我的有生之年我肯定能实现。
