"Bill Gates' Biggest Regret" (original CNN headline reads as such) Feb 2, 2015

http://money.cnn.com/2015/01/28/technology/bill-gates-regret/index.html



Bill Gates has made his mark on the world. So what does he regret?

Not matching a skill that Mark Zuckerberg used last year to impress a Chinese audience: speak a foreign language.

"I feel pretty stupid that I don't know any foreign languages," Gates said Wednesday in an online Reddit chat.

"I took Latin and Greek in high school and got A's and I guess it helps my vocabulary but I wish I knew French or Arabic or Chinese," he said. "I keep hoping to get time to study one of these - probably French because it is the easiest. I did Duolingo for a while but didn't keep it up. Mark Zuckerberg amazingly learned Mandarin and did a Q&A with Chinese students - incredible."

Zuckerberg, founder of Facebook (FB, Tech30), has become a fairly fluent speaker of Mandarin, a skill he demonstrated during a question-and-answer session with university students in Beijing.



BTW, Mark Zuckerberg's wife Priscilla Chan speaks 3 languages: English, Spanish, and Cantonese. And although Zuckerberg can carry a basic conversation in Chinese, IMO his Mandarin pronunciation leaves much to be desired.

1988年,马云从杭州师范学院外语系英语专业毕业后去了 杭州电子工学院,任英文及国际贸易讲师。马云很快成为杭州优秀青年教师,发起西湖边上第一个英语角,开始在杭州翻译界有名气。很多人来请马云做翻译,马云做不过来,于1992年成立海博翻译社,请退休老师做翻译。海博翻译社第一个月全部收入700元,房租2000元。为生存下去,马云背着大麻袋到义乌、广州去进货,海博翻译社开始卖鲜花,卖礼品。
1994年海博翻译社营收持平,1995年开始赚钱。

马云做翻译可能还不如论坛的很多同仁呢

所以,看到马云现在的发展状况,同志们是不是更有信心了呢

应该没有信心 Feb 4, 2015

马云是以语言为工具,他的长处并非翻译,也不是靠翻译才做到这么大。他恰恰是不做翻译了才有今天。

俞敏洪完全是靠外语起家的。

我觉得,做任何一行,只要业务精通,有商业眼光,都是有可能取得成功的。呵呵。

人各有志、 人各有命 Feb 4, 2015

... 举个例子吧: 薄熙来 原是我在 北京四中的同一级同学。 当年上高中,他在一班,我在三班。 可是之后我们俩的努力方向和人生经历可说是有天壤之别。

所以我个人觉得做人还是踏实些、安分守己些为好。 一个人想在这辈子中作出一些事业、作出一些成就当然很好,但说到底一个人的一生真正成功与否并不在于能否成名成家、能否出人头地、或是能否成为一个百万富翁。

As we speak, Lance Armstrong just happens to be in the news again Feb 4, 2015

http://www.cnn.com/2015/02/03/us/lance-armstrong-cited/index.html

所以依我看,一个人一生究竟是幸福还是倒霉、到头儿来究竟是“座上客”还是臭名昭著("阶下囚") 很难定断。 谁能说一个人人生的演绎与命运完全没有一点儿关系呢?

我想这并不完全是宿命论。 ...

Luck vs. Skill: Seeking the Secret of Your Success
By ROBERT H. FRANK
Published: August 4, 2012


THERE may be no topic that more reliably divides liberals and conservatives than the relationship between success and luck. Many conservatives celebrate market success as an almost inevitable consequence of talent and effort. Liberals, by contrast, like to remind us that even talented people who work hard sometimes fall on hard times through no fault of their own.



It’s easy to see why each side is wary of the other’s position. Conservatives, for example, understandably fret that encouraging people to view life as a lottery might encourage them just to sit back and hope for the best. Liberals, for their part, worry that encouraging people to claim an unrealistically large share of the credit for their own success might make them more reluctant to aid the less fortunate.

Both sets of concerns have important implications for public policy, so it would be good to know more about how important luck actually is. Unfortunately, it’s an inherently tough question to answer. But recent experiments suggest that chance events may influence market outcomes far more heavily than previously thought.

刚看到网上流传的一个顺口溜:“薄也好,厚也罢,最终难得永康“。
