Sasha Chapin has collected a number of friends' life advice and offers her own insights:

  1. Remember What Used to Work, Then Do It Again
  2. When Choosing a Life Path, Think About What Contexts It’ll Place You In
  3. Minor Barriers Aren’t Minor
  4. If You Put Behavior Into the World, You Get Behavior Out
  5. Don’t Blunder
  6. It’s Unlikely for People to Be Extreme on Many Dimensions
  7. Listening Is in Your Interest, Even If You’re Totally

A friend who recently asked me if he should take up a new job offer, in his opinion, there were pros and cons to the current job and the new opportunity. Without giving an obvious answer, I asked him a number of questions to hear what he really thought (point 7), including what he thought of his current job and what he expected for the future (point 2). It was also difficult for him to choose between the two job opportunities because, either way, he would have a good career and not make a big mistake (point 5). However, he was a bit worried that the probationary period of going to a new job would make him concerned, as he had been in this self-imposed dilemma every time before (the opposite of point 1). After a long chat, I didn't have a final answer, but advised him to think about what he valued most, and then the rest of the choices would be much easier.

Sasha Chapin 汇集了不少朋友的人生建议,并给出了自己的见解:

  1. 记住曾经行之有效的方法,然后继续尝试这些方法;
  2. 在选择人生道路时,要考虑它将把你置于什么样的环境中;
  3. 看似微小的障碍并不微小;
  4. 你如何对待这个世界,这个世界就会如何对待你;
  5. 不要犯大错;
  6. 人们不太可能在许多方面同时都很极端;
  7. 多多倾听,即使你是完全自私的人。

就像最近有朋友问我是否应该接受一个新工作机会,在他看来,现有的工作和新机会各有利弊,两者不分上下。我没有给出直接的答案,问了他不少问题,想听听他到底是怎么想的(第七点),包括对现在工作的看法,对未来的期望(第二点)。两个工作机会对他来说难以选择也是因为,无论哪个都会有很好的发展,不至于犯大错(第五点),但有点担心的是,去新工作的试用期会让他诚惶诚恐,因为他之前每次都会陷入这样的自我困境(与第一点正好相反)。聊了很久,我没有给出最终的答案,但是劝他想想他最看重的是什么,那么剩下的选择也就简单多了。
