We live in a world in which every one wants to be successful. Nothing is wrong about the desire to be No. 1, and there is no doubt that being successful is enjoyable. Nevertheless, it is somewhat childish to think we can be finally successful by only doing what we enjoy doing. People often are amazed by the glorious appearance of a skyscraper, however they at the same time forget the fact that the skyscraper had taken a long time to construct, maybe much longer time to design, and possibly even cost people's lives during the constructing process! We may categorize things into two groups, the enjoyable and the unenjoyable; at the same time, another category can be made: the necessary and the unnecessary. The point is, things that are necessary are not always enjoyable and things that are enjoyable sometimes may be unnecessary. Doing things that are necessary rather than those that are merely enjoyable is not only helpful, but might also be indispensable for individual success.

我们生活在一个世界中,每个人都想成功。没有什么是错误的欲望是1号,毫无疑问,成功是令人愉快的。尽管如此,认为我们可以通过做我们喜欢做的事情终于成功,这是一点幼稚的想法。人们常常为摩天大楼的辉煌而感到惊讶,但同时却忘记了这一事实:摩天大厦花了很长的时间来建造,也许更长的时间来设计,甚至可能在建造过程中花费了人们的生命!我们可以把事情分为两类,令人愉快和令人不愉快的;同时,另一类是:必要的和不必要的。问题是,有必要的事情不总是令人愉快的,有时是令人愉快的事情可能是不必要的。做必要的事情,而不是那些仅仅是享受的东西,不仅是有益的,而且也可能是个人成功不可或缺的。

We all admire even envy those who now have attained great achievements, such those famous stars as Jacky Chen, Jet Li. We should, however, be aware of the exorbitant prices they have paid for their present glories. Jacky Chen once told that when he was still a teenager, he and his partners were required to practice more than 12 hours a day; and it was said that Jet Li was sent to be an apprentice when he was hardly four years old! Apparently, those seemingly cruel hardships have turned out to be the best gifts years later. But for yesterday's struggle, today's glories could not exist. Things that are both enjoyable and necessary or both unenjoyable and unnecessary virtually seldom exist. We may dislike some curriculums in university, such as mathematics or history, but they are necessary; we may prefer leisure times to work days, but the latter are indispensable. Pursuing a successful life is nothing more than making wise decisions, and by "wise" we mean the choice of doing the necessary first.

我们都羡慕甚至嫉妒那些现在已经获得了伟大的成就,这些明星是成龙,李连杰。我们应该意识到,然而,他们为现在的辉煌付出高昂的价格。成龙曾说,当他还是一个少年时,他和他的伙伴们被要求一天练习超过12小时;据说,李连杰被派去当学徒时,他还不到四岁!显然,那些看似残酷的磨难已经成为了最好的礼物,几年后。但昨天的奋斗,就没有今日的辉煌。事情是既愉快又不必要的几乎不存在。我们可能不喜欢大学的某些课程,例如数学或历史,但它们是必要的;我们可能更喜欢闲暇时间到工作日,但后者是不可或缺的。追求成功的人生不仅仅是做出明智的决定,而通过“明智”的选择,我们的选择意味着首先做的选择。
