Advice by KK 摘录

在阮老师的周刊看到了Kevin Kelly给年轻人的建议 blog。其中一些还挺有感触的,此文只是自己做一下摘录,并附上这个网站的中文翻译版本。

68 Bits of Unsolicited Advice

  • Learn how to learn from those you disagree with, or even offend you. See if you can find the truth in what they believe.
  • 从你的不同意见人士,甚至冒犯你的人士那里学习。尝试去他们的信念当中找到真相。

前段时间看了《The Social Dilemma》。现在各种社交忘了的推荐算法不断优化,我们越来越只能看到我们认同与赞同的一面。但是或许只有看得越来越全面,才能更加接近真理?

  • Being enthusiastic is worth 25.
  • 保持热情,这相当于25点的智商值。


  • Always demand a deadline. A deadline weeds out the extraneous and the ordinary. It prevents you from trying to make it perfect, so you have to make it different. Different is better.
  • 总是要求最后期限。 最后期限淘汰掉无关紧要的事物。 它会阻止您尝试使其完美,因此您必须使其与众不同。与众不同会更好。

最近在实习,对 deadline 还有一点理解。有 deadline 的话,不管我现在代码结构有多么糟糕,但是它能正常跑出正确的结果。把糟糕的代码结构跑通后,我可以一边跑结果,一边优化重构,这样就不耽误事了。有点像我一直在重复提及的吴恩达老师在深度学习的课上说的话,先做一个完整但非常粗糙的模型,然后我们再去优化它。

  • A worthy goal for a year is to learn enough about a subject so that you can’t believe how ignorant you were a year earlier.
  • 有价值年度目标是要对某个主题有足够的了解,以至于您不敢相信自己在一年前是那么无知。


  • Never use a credit card for credit. The only kind of credit, or debt, that is acceptable is debt to acquire something whose exchange value is extremely likely to increase, like in a home. The exchange value of most things diminishes or vanishes the moment you purchase them. Don’t be in debt to losers.
  • 切勿使用信用卡让自己负债。 唯一可以接受的信贷或债务,是那种其交换价值极有可能增加的东西,例如房屋。 大多数商品在购买后交换价值就会减少或消失。 不要为了价值会降低的东西负债。


  • Don’t be the smartest person in the room. Hangout with, and learn from, people smarter than yourself. Even better, find smart people who will disagree with you.
  • 不要成为房间里最聪明的人。 与比自己聪明的人进行聊天,并向他们学习。 更好的是,找到不会同意你的那些聪明人。


  • Don’t be the best. Be the only.
  • 不要成为最好的。 成为唯一。


  • Everyone is shy. Other people are waiting for you to introduce yourself to them, they are waiting for you to send them an email, they are waiting for you to ask them on a date. Go ahead.
  • 每个人都害羞。 其他人正在等待您向他们介绍自己,他们正在等待您向他们发送电子邮件,他们正在等待您向他们询问日期。 向前推进。

社恐反省 +1

  • The purpose of a habit is to remove that action from self-negotiation. You no longer expend energy deciding whether to do it. You just do it. Good habits can range from telling the truth, to flossing.
  • 习惯的目的是从自我谈判中消除这种行为。 您不再需要花费精力来决定是否这样做。 直接去做。良好的习惯可以从讲真话到使用牙线。


  • The more you are interested in others, the more interesting they find you. To be interesting, be interested.
  • 您对他人越感兴趣,他们对您的兴趣就越大。 要有趣,要有兴趣。
  • If you are looking for something in your house, and you finally find it, when you’re done with it, don’t put it back where you found it. Put it back where you first looked for it.
  • 如果您正在房子里寻找东西,而且最终把它找到了,找到后,不要将其放回找到的地方。 将其放回您最初寻找的位置。


  • Acquiring things will rarely bring you deep satisfaction. But acquiring experiences will.
  • 买东西很少会给你带来深刻的满足感。 但是获得经验会。
  • The universe is conspiring behind your back to make you a success. This will be much easier to do if you embrace this pronoia.
  • 整个宇宙都在幕后谋划让您成功。 如果您接受这个天意,一切会变得更容易。

  • Learn how to tie a bowline knot. Practice in the dark. With one hand. For the rest of your life you’ll use this knot more times than you would ever believe.

虽然不太清楚 bowline knot 为什么这么重要,但是小时候很喜欢一本《男孩的冒险书》,里面教了好多绳结的系法,还蛮有意思的。

  • Being wise means having more questions than answers.
  • Your best response to an insult is “You’re probably right.” Often they are.

只要你不 care 别人,受伤的就是别人?

  • If your goal does not have a schedule, it is a dream.
  • People can’t remember more than 3 points from a speech.

想到做科研被老师们反复强调的,一篇文章,一定要有一个 Take-home Message。

  • When you are stuck, sleep on it. Let your subconscious work for you.
  • Be a good ancestor. Do something a future generation will thank you for. A simple thing is to plant a tree.
  • Advice like these are not laws. They are like hats. If one doesn’t fit, try another.
