To Make a Mistake 去犯錯

There are two types of mistakes: mistakes of ambition and mistakes of sloth.

The first is the result of a decision to act—to do something. This type of mistake is made with incomplete information, as it's impossible to have all the facts beforehand. This is to be encouraged. Fortune favors the bold.

The second is the result of a decision of sloth—to not do something— wherein we refuse to change a bad situation out of fear despite having all the facts. This is how learning experiences become terminal punishments, bad relationships become bad marriages, and poor job choices become lifelong prison sentences.

錯誤有兩種:野心導致的錯誤與懶惰導致的錯誤。

第一種是採取行動,為了達成某個目的而犯錯,這類的錯誤是因為資訊不足所造成,無法事先獲得完整資訊。這種行為可以鼓勵。

第二種是怠惰不前,不想做事。這種情況中,我們出於恐懼、拒絕改變惡劣的處境,即使擁有所有的資訊。
Timothy Ferriss, American author





Would you like me to give you a formula for success? It's quite simple, really. Double your rate of failure.
希望我給你致勝的方程式嗎?很簡單。將你失敗的機率增加一倍就行。
