2015年即將過去,大家是否正在計劃來年的目標呢?

時代雜誌(TIME)從LinkedIn整理出的10大最有影響力的人中,選出他們最具啟發性的建議。

正在計劃未來的你,不妨看看是否可以從中得到啟發?

1. 微軟創辦人之一 比爾蓋茨Bill Gates

What will it take to make sure life really does improve faster for the poor? We need advances in technology and we need to deliver them to the people who need them most. We also need to close the gender gap. Countries where girls don’t go to school or women can’t open a business will be left behind.

怎樣才能確保窮人的生活可更快地得到改善?我們需要科技進步,並將成果提供給最需要的人。

我們亦需要縮小大眾在看待兩性上的差距。那些不讓女孩上學、及不讓女性開創企業的國家將會被逃汰。

2. 維珍集團執行長 Richard Branson

The only way to get through those long hours is to love what you do. You have to be passionate about what you are creating and believe in the impact it will have on the world.

要捱過漫長的日子,唯一方法就是愛上自己正在做的事。你必須熱愛你正在創造的,並相信它會為世界帶來影響。

3. 安聯經濟顧問Mohamed El-Erian 

There is nothing better than personal experiences to make you realize the importance of diversity, and the need to work hard and continuously to advance it. After all, we all — men included — benefit from promoting greater gender equality at home and at work.


沒有甚麼會比親身經歷更能讓你明白到多樣化、努力工作及將之不斷改進的重要性。畢竟我們所有人,包括男性在內,無論是工作抑或家庭上,都可從促進更大的性別平等中受益。

4.  企業家 James Altucher

Fears of the future are just as useless as the painful thoughts of the past. They have nothing to do with how we can be happy right now. So they deserve to be labeled and put in the mental spam box.

擔心未來和過去的一些痛苦想法一樣,都是沒有用的。對於我們當下感到的快樂,它們什麼也做不了。因此它們應該被標記,並棄置在我們精神上的垃圾郵件箱內。

5.  業務及數據專家 Bernard Marr

When you’re feeling completely stressed out, try identifying and then taking one positive action. It might be making a list of tasks that you can prioritize, asking for more resources, or even just finding the humor in the situation. If you can find one positive action to take, everything else will seem more doable.

當你感到壓力過大時,不妨嘗試識別壓力的來源,並採取一個正面的行動應對。這個行動不但可幫助整理好需要優先考慮的排序,要求更多的資源,甚至可能從中找到值得幽默的地方。只要你能找到一個積極行動去應對,其餘的事就會顯得更為可行。

6. Ellevest 聯合創辦人及CEO Sallie Krawcheck

Before defining your personal brand comes defining your professional mission. This can be the really hard part. What matters to you? What are you trying to accomplish? Why do you do it?

在定義自己的個人品牌前,應先定義自己的職業上的使命。這可能是真正困難的部分。甚麼對你來說才是真正重要的?甚麼是你渴望完成的?你為什麼要這樣做呢?

7. 歐亞集團主席 Ian Bremmer

To be an entrepreneur, you have to cast as wide a net as possible. Taking lots of risks is just part of the job, and you have to be ready for the reality that most of your ideas won’t pan out. You push on with confidence that, somewhere down the line, one of your ideas will hit big.

要成為一位企業家,你需要像漁翁撒網般盡量嘗試。處理大量風險只是工作的一部份,你需要有心理準備面對現實,就是自己大部份的主意都不會成功;要抱緊信念,在不久的將來,你其中一個主意會一擊即中。

8. CBS News 業務分析師 Jill Schlesinger

After a number of data breaches at some of the nation’s top retailers, many are worried about protecting their identities from thieves. Experts say that when shopping in a store, the safest choice is cash at the checkout counter, but that too has risk, because who really wants to shop with wads of cash?

自從有資料從部分國際企業中洩漏出去,許多人都擔心無法再保障自己的身份安全。專家指當在商店中購物時,最安全的選擇是以現金結帳,但其實這樣做亦有風險。因為誰會真的想用一疊現金購物?

9. 網上品牌管理服務供應商Hootsuite CEO Ryan Holmes

Millennials may be notoriously demanding when it comes to fulfillment on the job, but this isn’t a bad thing. Companies that are able to discover ways to satisfy their curiosity and provide channels for growth—even if this doesn’t always mean direct advancement—will find that employee loyalty does exist.

對於要求工作上的成就感,千禧世代可能是出了名苛刻,但這並不是一件壞事。要是公司能發現如何可以滿足他們的好奇心,並提供讓他們成長的渠道,即使這並不總是意味直接的進步,但從中可以發現員工對公司的忠誠。

My humble advice to all those who are trying to learn leadership, is to achieve clarity in your own mind, first, on what you want to achieve. Clarity is the highest form of human intelligence.

容我建議那些正在學習領導能力的人,在達成目標前首先要清晰自己的心態。清晰是人類智慧中的最高形式。
