职场:只工作不休息 人会变笨

I recently ran into an old friend who I hadn’t seen for two years. She looked tired and intense, and was talking at a high pitch. She is a headhunter, and had just finished interviewing a high-profile candidate but failed to impress him.
我最近遇到了一个老朋友,我们有两年没见面了。她看起来很累,精神紧张,并且讲话声音很大。她是一个猎头,刚刚面试了一个很高调的候选人,却未能打动他。

Then she started to complain about her health problems. One year ago, she began to notice a ringing in her ears. She went to the hospital and was told she was suffering from chronic tinnitus that may have resulted from stress. The doctor prescribed her pills for her nerves.

然后她开始抱怨健康问题。一年前,她发现耳朵里有响声,去医院检查得知患上了慢性耳鸣,可能是由压力导致。医生给她开了舒缓神经的药物。

At nighttime, she has to listen to soundtracks of flowing streams to quiet the noise in her head and fall asleep. Her life has become a two-point routine of work and home. Even while she was vacationing in Thailand, she found herself searching for the right candidate.
夜间,她得听着流水的音乐,盖过耳鸣声,才能安静的入睡。她的生活已经成为公司和家两点一线式。即使是在泰国度假,她发现自己出于职业习惯也总在寻找合适的候选人。

She suffers from the same workaholic depression as another friend who works for an advertising firm. This friend has to work overtime almost every day. If she’s lucky, she can leave at 9 pm; otherwise it’s midnight. For her, working on weekends has become normal. Each time I see her, she seems down.
另一个在广告公司工作的朋友也患有同样的工作狂抑郁症。这个朋友几乎天天加班。如果幸运,她晚上9点就能下班了;否则,就到凌晨了。而且对她来说,周末加班也是家常便饭。我每次见到她时,她似乎情绪都不高。

My two friends share something in common: They don’t want to escape their misery, believing that if you don’t work hard when you are young, you will regret it. That may be true, but there are limits. If every day you wake up looking like you’re suffering from long-term constipation; if you hate your office; if you’re the victim of constant criticism and office politics are eating up all your energy - then it may be time to move on.

我的两个朋友有以下共同点:他们不想摆脱他们的痛苦,他们坚信,如果年轻时不努力工作,将来会后悔。这可能是对的,但也有一个度。如果你每天醒来都像患有长期的便秘一样,如果你讨厌你的办公室,如果你总是那个挨批评的替罪羊,办公室政治耗尽了你所有的能量——那么是时候离开了。

As important as finding a job that you really like, is finding a company with a healthy vibe. The right company should lift your spirits and have a team working toward a common goal.
和找到一份你真正喜欢的工作同样重要的是,找到一个有健康氛围的公司。好的公司要能鼓舞你的士气,团队成员朝着一个共同的目标奋斗。

As for the employees, they should work hard and play hard. Remember - all work and no play makes Jack a dull boy. If you can enjoy life, you will have more passion to bring to your work.
对于员工来说,工作时应该努力,休息时也应当尽兴。记住,只工作不休息,聪明的孩子也会变傻。只有学会享受生活,在工作时才会有更多的激情。

For instance, I like to travel and go out to eat at fancy restaurants to reward myself for completing a project. That’s my way of trying to understanding life. You can also indulge in creative hobbies like painting, dancing or photography. In short, be a healthy and high-spirited workaholic: Learn to find balance between work and living.
比如,完成一个项目后,我喜欢旅游、去高档餐厅吃饭,以犒劳自己。这是我试着享受生活的方式。同样,你也可以享受像绘画、跳舞、摄影等创造性的爱好。总之,做一个健康、积极向上的工作狂:学会找到工作和生活之间的平衡。
