这份工作是不是你的真爱, 8个迹象看一看

如果我们找到了心仪的工作,会有很多迹象表明我们对工作的喜爱。但是找到热爱的工作并不意味着这份工作很轻松。当工作中出现挑战时,或者遇到困难时,我们很难确定现在这份工作是不是我们注定要做的。

Finding work you are truly passionate about can feel a lot like falling in love. You become infatuated, excited, and you can feel yourself changing for the better. But what happens when you get used to it? New is now familiar, and that loving feeling is not as “sparkly” as it once was. In some cases, when relationships last for this long (with a person or a career) it can be difficult to tell if you still want to be in it for the long run. Here are some signs that you’ve found the one.
找到一份令你激情四射的工作就像谈恋爱一样。你会为它着迷、激动,而且自己会越变越好。但如果你已经习惯了呢?新奇变成了熟悉,那种爱意不复当初一般蹦耀火花。某些情况下,当一段关系持续了很久(无论是对人还是对工作),你就很难确定自己是否还想长期经营下去。下面这些迹象意味着你找到了那份心仪的工作。


1. There are never enough hours to accomplish everything.
1. 总是没有时间完成所有的事情。

There is always a constant stream of work coming in. But you don’t let it paralyze you. There is so much to be done because you keep getting it done. You’re in the work flow, baby. Hemingway always stopped writing when he had more to say. It was better than writing ’til he ran dry, which meant picking it up the next day with nothing ready to write. This is you at work. There’s always a to-do list ready to go the next day.
工作总是源源不断。但是你没有因此被打倒。有很多事情还没有完成是因为你一直不停地在做事情。你在工作的进程中呢,宝贝。海明威总是在有更多想说的话之时停止写作。这总比灵感枯竭时还坚持写作好,因为这样就意味着第二天你再提笔的时候就没有东西可写了。这就是你的工作状态。第二天总是有一堆要做的事情。


2. You often remind yourself of the “bigger picture.”
2. 你经常提醒自己看得长远一点。

There are always going to be little mundane tasks that have to get finished—even if we don’t want to be the one to finish them. It’s easy to lose yourself in the nuts and bolts of a project without envisioning it’s completion. It’s even easier to get hung up on how difficult and time consuming the little projects can be. But when you love the work you do, you always find a way to see the forest through the trees and remind yourself of what you are working toward.
总有一些枯燥的任务需要完成——即使你不想成为完成这些任务的那个人。我们很容易就迷失在某项工程的繁复细节中,而忘了展望它的完成,更容易纠结于这些细节工作有多难多费时。但如果你热爱你的工作,你就总能通过树木看见整座森林,并提醒自己你究竟是为了什么工作。


3. Your frustration is born out of something not being good enough.
3. 你的失望来自于某事不完美

When we care about the work we do and something doesn’t live up to our standards, it can be really disappointing. If this frustration comes from wanting something to be better than it is and taking extra time and effort to bring it up to those standards, then you are actually doing work that matters to you. Even if the struggle feels like a huge pain, working toward the end result you want will give you an even greater sense of reward once you get it there.
当我们在意工作或某事不能达到自己的标准时,会非常失望。如果这种沮丧来自于想要某事变得更完美,并愿意花时间和精力使之达到标准,那么你所做的工作对你来说是重要的。即使这种挣扎让你感觉到极大的痛苦,朝着你预想的目标前进,一旦达到目标,你就会更有成就感。


4. You talk about your work during breakfast and dinner.
4. 你在早餐和晚餐时间谈论你的工作。

You seriously can’t help talking about the thing you’re working on, even if it frustrates you. You try to talk out the issue with your loved ones, thinking maybe another perspective can help you “hallelujah” your way to a solution. Complaining about your job does not fall into this category. There will always be days or even weeks at a time when things just feel like they’re working against you, but you keep talking about your work through every kind of phase.
哪怕工作再让你心灰意冷,你就是忍不住提到它。你试图和你爱的人讨论这个话题,想着也许其他人的意见能帮助你找到解决方法。抱怨工作可不属于这一类。总是有几天甚至几周,你感觉工作和你作对,但你仍然每时每刻都谈论工作。


5. You feel like the day just started when it’s suddenly lunchtime.
5. 你感觉还没过多久就到午餐时间了。

Have you ever done this? You’ve gone through a couple of tasks, maybe answered a few quick emails, or tidied up some things left from the previous day and are ready to dig into the bigger work when you look at the time and it’s 11:47 am? Where the heck did the morning go? If it’s easy for you to get into flow, meaning you’re working on something that is not too easy but not so challenging you can’t do it, you’re doing work that is juuuust right for you.
你有这样的经历吗?你完成了几个任务,也许是回复了几封邮件,或是把昨天剩下的事情处理完了,正准备大干一场的时候看了一下时间,发现已经到了11点47分。你惊觉时间都去哪儿了?如果你很容易就进入工作状态,意味着你做的事情既不简单但又不至于有太大的挑战,那么你现在的工作就是最最最适合你的。


6. You are constantly inspired by the people around you.
6. 你经常被身边的人鼓舞。

The things they seem to accomplish can sometime blow you away. You admire their tenacity in their work and you want to support them any way you can so that they can keep being awesome. You love what you are all working toward collectively as a team. Typically, when we are feeling good, we see the good in others. So by admiring the work of others, it’s coming from a place of admiring your own work as well.
他们所做的事有时候能让你惊呆。你羡慕他们坚毅的工作态度,你想要不惜任何代价支持他们让他们能一直这样充满干劲。你喜欢和他们作为一个团队一起工作。通常,当我们自我感觉良好的时候,我们也能看见别人的亮点。所以钦佩别人的工作的同时,你一定也喜欢自己的工作。


7. You find yourself looking at your extracurricular life in terms of work.
7. 你发现自己从工作角度看待业余生活。

You are not strict about mentally checking out of work when you don’t have to be there. You like your work, so you also like thinking about it outside of office hours. You find yourself solving problems, brainstorming ideas, and thinking in terms of how something in your life relates to something in your work. Like Newton and the apple, sometimes your greatest ideas come to you when you are far from the office.
当你不在工作时间,你不会严格要求自己不去想工作的事情。如果你喜欢自己的工作,你就会在业余时间也想着工作。你会发现自己在解决问题,思索点子,思考生活中的事情是如何和工作上的事情联系在一起的。就像牛顿和苹果一样,有时候最好的想法往往是在你远离办公场所的时候诞生的。


8. You don’t dread Sunday night.
8. 你不会在周日晚上焦虑不安。

For people who don’t like their jobs, every day of the week has a certain quality. Monday is for the blues, Wednesday is halfway there, and Friday is the sweetest day of the week because it means they are one lazy work day away from the weekend. Many Saturdays are occupied by a hangover, and Sunday, well, even though it’s a day off, it can feel like one of the most dreadful because another work week is around the corner. But when you like the work, Sunday is a great day! Just like most of the other days. It’s always so nice to have time to take care of our homes, spend quality time with family and friends, or just go out and explore. But when Sunday does finally come around, it’s almost exciting to get back to work after a refreshing weekend.
对于不喜欢自己工作的人来说,一周的每一天都有不同的特性。周一是忧郁的,周三就过半了,周五就是最开心的日子了,因为离周末只有一天了,懒散地打发一下就过去了。周六大多都是在宿醉中度过的,周日,好了,虽然这天也休息,但是却可能是感觉最糟的一天,因为下一周不远了。但如果你喜欢工作,周日就是完美的一天!就像一周其他几天一样。有时间照顾家里,和家人朋友度过有意义的一天,或出去探索一番总是令人愉悦的。但周日真到了,激动的还是在周末恢复精力后又能回去工作了。
