你厌倦了吗? | Are you bored?

Are you bored?

-From Mitch Barns Blog

At a few points throughout my career, I have sought a change when I began to feel “bored” with what I was doing.   Sometimes that was the right thing to do.  But sometimes, maybe not. 
In a recent column in Forbes, Amity Shlaes* writes, “My father gave me the best career advice I ever heard:  ‘There will come a moment when you are bored … and you will want to try something new.  But that boredom is the signal you’ve achieved mastery.  You’ll be quitting at the moment when it’s most costly to do so.  Only a mastered trade can be properly monetized.’ ”
Next time you are “bored” with your role, ask yourself whether it would be better to seek a change to a new role, or whether it is a signal that you are ready to more fully capitalize on what you know, to increase your impact, and/or to drive change and improvement right where you are.  Either way, your boredom should quickly disappear. 
Are you bored?

你厌倦了吗?

 -摘自Mitch Barns博客

当我的职业生涯走了好几段之后,我开始对自己正在做的事情有些厌倦,于是开始寻求一些改变。有些时候这种做法是对的,但有些时候并不是。

在近期的Forbes栏目中,Amity Shlaes他写到:“我父亲给了我一个我至今觉得最好的职业意见,那就是‘有一天你会发现你厌倦了,然后你要去找一些新东西。但厌倦是你精通的信号。这时候退出意味着要付出最大的代价。只有娴熟的手艺才能真正地变成财富。’”

如果下次你觉得厌倦了就问一下自己,确实应该找一个新的环境了呢,还是这说明你已经可以把你的所学变成财富和影响力呢,还是就现在的情况作出改变或改善。不管选择其中哪一条,你的厌倦都很快会消失的。

那么你厌倦了吗?
