Paul Graham谈始终要保持的还是好奇心,好奇心是成就自己的关键

美国著名程序员、博客作者和技术作家保罗·格雷厄姆(Paul Graham)在其个人网站上的长文《How to do great work》给仍然雄心勃勃的年轻人提了一些建议,适合每位对自己仍有期望的朋友反复阅读。下面是本文的第二十五部分摘录:


Notice how often that word has come up. If you asked an oracle the secret to doing great work and the oracle replied with a single word, my bet would be on “curiosity.”

That doesn’t translate directly to advice. It’s not enough just to be curious, and you can’t command curiosity anyway. But you can nurture it and let it drive you.

Curiosity is the key to all four steps in doing great work: it will choose the field for you, get you to the frontier, cause you to notice the gaps in it, and drive you to explore them. The whole process is a kind of dance with curiosity.

如果你问一个神谕关于如何做出伟大的工作的秘诀,而神谕回答一个单词,我会打赌那个单词是"好奇心"。

当然,这并不能直接转化为建议。仅仅拥有好奇心是不够的,而且你也不能命令自己拥有好奇心。但是你可以培养它,并让它驱使你。

好奇心是做出伟大工作的四个步骤的关键:它会为你选择领域,将你带到前沿,让你注意到其中的空白,并驱使你去探索它们。整个过程就像是与好奇心共舞。
