      The Best Advice I Ever Got

      一生中最好的忠告

      Several pieces of advice I've gotten in my life have really made a difference.

      我在生活中獲得的一些忠告的確對我產生了十分重大的影響。

      Be nice to people. This sounds like a platitude , but I'll never forget my father telling me that. I was 10, and I had been mean to someone. He said, "There is no point in being mean to anyone at any time. You never know who you're going to meet later in life. And by the way, you don't change anything by being mean. Usually you don't get anywhere."

      “友善待人。”這話聽起來似乎是老生常談,但我永遠都不會忘記父親給我這則忠告的情景。當時我十歲,曾對某人刻薄。于是父親教育我:“不論什么時候,你都沒必要對任何人刻薄,因為你永遠都不知道自己在以后的生活中將會遇到誰。而且,刻薄待人于事無補,通常只會一無所獲。”

      Remember that you can do anything you want to do. Don't let anyone say, 'You're not smart enough ... it's too hard ... it's a dumb idea ... no one has done that before ... girls don't do that.' My mom gave me that advice in 1973. And it allowed me to never worry about what others were saying about my career direction.

      “記住,你能做到自己想做的任何事情。不要讓任何人說:‘你不夠聰明……這太難了……這是個笨主意……從來沒有人做過那樣的事……女孩子不該那樣做。’”這是母親在1973年給我的建議。這條忠告讓我從不為別人對我職業方向的看法而煩惱。

      Always do the best job you can do at whatever you're assigned, even if you think it's boring. Jerry Parkinson, an assistant advertising manager and my boss at P&G, told me this in 1979. Here I was fresh out of Harvard Business School (HBS), and I was assigned to determine how big the hole in the Ivory shampoo bottle should be: 3/8 of an inch or 1/8 of an inch. I did research, focus groups ... and I would come home at night wondering how I had gone from HBS to this. But later I realized that any job you're given is an opportunity to prove yourself.

      “不論分配給你的任務是什么,你都必須盡全力做到最好,即使你認為那是個無聊的任務。”1979年,我在寶潔公司工作時的老板、廣告部經理助理杰瑞·帕金森給了我以上這條忠告。那時我剛從哈佛商學院畢業,公司派給我的任務是研究“象牙”洗發水瓶的瓶口該開多大才最合適:是3/8英寸還是1/8英寸?為此我做了調查,還進行了專題小組討論……可是晚上回到家,我就會疑惑:我堂堂一個哈佛商學院的畢業生,怎么在做這樣的事情?然而,后來我意識到:你接到的任何一項工作其實都是證明你自己的機會。

      Don't be a credit hog . If you're constantly in the neighborhood of good things, good things will happen to you. "Tom Tierney, who was my boss at Bain in 1981 and is now on the eBay board, told me this. It's true - you get ahead by crediting other people.

      “不要追名逐利。如果你長期與好事為鄰,那么好事自然會發生在你身上。”這句話是1981年我在貝恩咨詢公司工作時,我的老板湯姆·蒂爾尼對我說的。他現在是易趣的股東。這話說得很對——通過贊譽他人,你也會取得成功。

      Finally, in 1998, I was in New York watching the ticker as eBay went public . My husband is a neurosurgeon . I called into his operating room and told him the great news. And he said, "That's nice. But Meg, remember that it's not brain surgery ."

      最后一則忠告出現在1998年,當時我在紐約盯著倒計時牌,等待易趣上市時刻的到來。我的丈夫是一個神經外科醫生,當我打電話到他的手術室,告訴他這個好消息時,他卻答道:“這很不錯。不過, 梅格,你要切記,它沒有腦外科手術那么要緊。”
