之前分享过「通过这 40 个问题与自我对话」,在其中解释了「时间标尺」概念以及为什么进行「自我提问」,也是我正在用做年度回顾与计划的清单。

通过这40个问题与自我对话 - 生活方法论 | 假设检验
这些问题并非“圣经”,我们理应根据自身情况调整问题与时间周期:每年、每半年又或者每个季度。重要的是通过这个形式找到定期规律的总结回顾生活,与自我交流的方法。

周末收到了 Farnam Street 邮件,Shane 也分享了用来协助制定年度计划的 7 个问题。看完后非常吸引我,所以我也把这些问题加入到了自己的清单中。

我把内容翻译成了中文,与大家分享,你也可以点击下载 Farnam Street 原版 PDF 文件。

1. You're Fired - 你被解雇了

最成功的人会无情地分析什么是有效的,什么是无效的。

  • 如果今天重新开始接管我的生活,我将立即停止做什么?
  • 我将会开始做什么?

提示:想象一下,你今天开始重新接管生活。如果你想变得更加成功。你会做停止什么?你会开始做什么?什么东西妨碍了你?

The most successful people ruthlessly analyze what’s working and what's not.

  • If I took over my life from scratch today, what would I immediately stop doing?
  • What would I start doing?

Hint: Imagine you took over your life today. If you wanted to be more successful,
what would you stop? What would you start? What's getting in the way?

2. More and Less - 更多与更少

除非你享受攀登过程,否则你永远无法到达山顶。

  • 明年我想在什么地方花「更多」时间?
  • 明年我想在什么地方花「更少」的时间?

提示:什么给了你能量?什么让你疲惫不堪?什么给了你意义? 什么似乎是空虚的?

You'll never reach the top of the mountain unless you enjoy the climb.

  • What do I want to spend MORE time on next year?
  • What do I want to spend LESS time on next year?

Hint: What gave you energy? What drained you? What gave you meaning?
What seemed void?

3. Passive Mode - 被动模式

最成功的人不会等待事情自动发生,他们积极行动,先下手为强来推动事情发生。

  • 我在哪里等待另一个人做出第一步?
  • 我可以做什么来积极进取,先下手为强?

提示:别再等待他人先发起行动了。不管是道歉还是约人出去约会。别再等着生活给你应得的东西,主动出击把它变成现实。

The most successful people don't wait around for things to happen to them, they make things happen by going positive and go first.

  • Where am I waiting for another person to make the first move?
  • What can I do to go positive and go first?

Hint: Stop waiting for someone to make the first move. It doesn't matter if it is an apology or asking someone out on a date. Stop waiting for life to give you what you deserve and go out and make it happen.

4. Planting Seeds - 播撒种子

最成功的人总是在为未来播种。

  • 我在下周能做什么,会使今年剩下的时间更轻松?
  • 今年我可以做什么,使我在明年处于更好的状况?

提示:有时是为了更有条理性,有时是为了省钱从而摆脱债务。关键是在今天做那些对自己明天更有利的事。

The most successful people are always planting seeds for the future.

  • What can I do in the next week that will make the rest of the year easier?
  • What can I do this year that will leave me in a better position for next year?

Hint: Sometimes it's about getting organized and sometimes it's about spending less money to get out of debt. The key is to do the things you need to do today to put yourself in a better position tomorrow.

5. The Inner Circle - 内部圈子

最成功的人会注意与他们相处的人。

  • 我花时间与谁在一起会有负面影响?
  • 我和谁在一起会使我有所成长?

意志力是有限的。你的习惯和思维方式会慢慢与你花时间相处的人趋同。像选择个人董事会一样选择你的朋友。

The most successful people are conscious about who they spend time with.

  • Who do I spend time with that pulls me down?
  • Who do I spend time with that lifts me up?

Willpower can only do so much. You eventually adopt the habits and mindset of the people you spend your time with. Select your friends as you would a personal board of directors.

6. Film Crew - 电影摄制组

如果有一个摄制组整天跟着你,记录你的成功,你会做所有成功人士做的事情。

  • 我希望摄制组看到我在做什么?
  • 有哪些事情是我正在做但不想让摄制组看到的?

提示:如果有人在看,你就不会无休止地刷新社交媒体。

If there was a film crew following you around all day documenting your success, you'd do all the things successful people do.

  • What am I doing that I'd want the film crew to see?
  • What are the things I'm doing that I don’t want the film crew to see?

Hint: You wouldn't be endlessly scrolling social media if someone was watching.

7. Goals - 目标

最成功的人都有自己想要完成的目标,并有相应的规划来使其成为现实。

  • 我新年的目标是什么?
  • 我是否有合适的系统来实现这些目标?哪些方面需要改变?

提示:年度目标很适合用来自我激励,但最好分成每周或每月的目标,以便付诸行动。把目标写下来,放在你能看到的地方。

The most successful people have goals they want to accomplish AND the systems in place to make them inevitable.

  • What are my goals for 2023?
  • Do I have the right systems in place to make them happen? What needs to change?

Hint: Yearly goals are great to keep your eye on the prize but it's better to break them into weekly or monthly goals to keep you going. Write them down and put them where you can see them.
