如何规划未来——即使你害怕

TED Women 2019 began yesterday. I’m attending (virtually, this year) and realized the theme right away: Fear. Not to stoke fear, but to see it, feel it and understand it. In her TED Talk, award-winning sci-fi novelist Charlie Jane Anders put it this way:
2019年TED女性始于昨天。我参加了(实际上,今年)并马上意识到了主题:恐惧。不是激起恐惧,而是去看它,感受它,理解它。获奖科幻小说家查理·简·安德斯在她的TED演讲中这样说:

You cannot prepare for something you haven’t visualized. You don’t predict the future, you imagine the future… We have a logical fallacy that we expect the future to be an extension of the present.
你不能为你没有想象到的事情做准备。你不能预测未来,你可以想象未来…我们有一个逻辑谬误,认为未来是现在的延伸。

Feeling paralyzed by the future? Perhaps you’re putting too much pressure on controlling what will happen next rather than picturing how you want things to be.
感觉被未来麻痹了?也许你在控制接下来会发生什么上施加了太大的压力,而不是想象你希望事情会怎样。

You cannot prepare for something you haven’t visualized
Current circumstances can cloud our vision. I’ve been there as an independent entrepreneur, writer and creator: Being broke at a moment and, within months, making more money than I ever had previously, or being frustrated at the lack of progress and, within days, being breathless at the opportunities available. Sometimes it is part of the journey.
你不能为你没有想象到的事情做准备
当前的情况可能会影响我们的愿景。我作为一名独立的企业家、作家和创造者来到这里:一会儿破产,几个月之内挣得比以前更多的钱,或者对缺乏进展感到沮丧,几天之内,对可用的机会感到喘不过气来。有时这是旅程的一部分。

The vision has to stay intact, though. The vision must be preserved. Otherwise, you won’t make the circumstances better.
不过,这一愿景必须保持不变。必须保持这一愿景。否则,你不会让情况变得更好。

Think about where you were exactly five year ago. Everything is likely different:
New people you love have come into your life or old people have left your life
Your business or role likely expanded, solidified or changed altogether
What matters to you has evolved
Now, imagine what will be important to you exactly five years from now? That is a visualization. Notice it has nothing directly to do with the modern political environment, the current world economy or even the wishes of people around you. Your visualization of the future is one of the few things that you have complete control over. And, if you let it, your visualization is also one of the pieces that will contribute to the future all of us will have.
想想五年前你在哪里。一切都可能不同:
你爱的新的人已经进入你的生活,或者老的人已经离开你的生活
你的业务或角色可能会扩大、巩固或完全改变
对你来说重要的是进化了
现在,想象一下五年后对你来说什么是重要的?这是一种想象。请注意,这与现代政治环境、当前世界经济甚至你周围人的愿望都没有直接关系。你对未来的想象是你能完全控制的少数事情之一。如果你愿意,你的视觉化也是对我们所有人的未来做出贡献的部分之一。

You don’t predict the future, you imagine the future
It’s a tough fact: We don’t know what’s going to happen next. Once we accept this truth, then actually planning for the future becomes a much less anxious exercise.
你不能预测未来,你可以想象未来
这是一个严峻的事实:我们不知道接下来会发生什么。一旦我们接受了这个事实,那么实际上规划未来就变得不那么焦虑了。

For instance, you don’t know when you’re going to die – could be in the next moment, could be in the next century. But if you did live to be two hundred years old, then what kind of life would you lead? What would be your priorities? How can you lean into those ideas now?
例如,你不知道你什么时候会死——可能在下一刻,也可能在下一个世纪。但是如果你活到两百岁,你会过什么样的生活呢?你的优先事项是什么?你现在怎么能依靠这些想法呢?

More dramatically, when you look back from the future, what would you regret wasting your time with at the moment? Wasting a year or two of an average lifespan with a bad habit or idea is one thing, but wasting exponential decades in a longer lifespan is quite another.
更引人注目的是,当你回顾未来时,你会后悔现在浪费了你的时间吗?用坏习惯或坏想法浪费一两年的平均寿命是一回事,但用更长的寿命浪费指数级的几十年却是另一回事。

Imagination isn’t restricted to sci-fi novels. Imagination is the ability to create a blueprint for a time that isn’t here yet.
We have a logical fallacy that we expect the future to be an extension of the present.
想象力不限于科幻小说。想象力是为尚未到来的时代创造蓝图的能力。
我们有一个逻辑谬误,认为未来是现在的延伸。

I agree with this problem and, oddly enough, it is easy to snap out of – especially if you are an entrepreneur:
Amazon: 25 years old (1995)
Facebook: 15 years old (2004)
Uber: 10 years old (2009)
我同意这个问题,奇怪的是,它很容易解决——尤其是如果你是企业家:
亚马逊:25岁(1995年)
脸书:15岁(2004年)
优步:10岁(2009年)

The kids born when these companies started would barely be out of college, if elementary school. And yet, these companies have impacted the world economy in ways we are just starting to understand (though perhaps we could visualize it!).
这些公司成立时出生的孩子即使上小学,也只能勉强走出大学。然而,这些公司已经以我们刚刚开始理解的方式影响了世界经济(尽管也许我们可以想象它!)。

Everything can change at any moment. It is only scary when you aren’t helping direct the future. Afraid about what’s going to happen next? Then start creating what’s going to happen next. It begins with visualizing what could – and perhaps should – be.
一切随时都可能改变。只有当你没有帮助指引未来时,这才是可怕的。害怕接下来会发生什么?然后开始创造接下来会发生什么。它始于想象什么是可能的,也许应该是。
