Review: Lo And Behold


  Someone commented that the "documentary" doesn't reveal anything new. All cliche we have heard before. I think, if we are talking about a "documentary" and chasing solutions or future tips in this (probably) self-evolving Internet world, yes, the movie is almost boring as obsolete. And yet, if we watch this "film" in a philosophical and sociopsychological perspective, I'd say this is the most intriguing and critical mind-adventure I have been through recently. I highly recommend this film to anyone who really cares about the future of human kind in a rapid developing Internet world.
  There are many fascinating angles of view made by different narratives. Here's one of my favorite. Lucianne Walkowicz, the stellar astronomer from NASA, made a conclusion that "while I would like to explore Mars more, I think the only thing that we've demonstrated is that we're very good at destroying the habitability of earth, rather than improving the habitability of a completely alien world. The idea that Mars will somehow save us from the decisions we've made here is a false one. And it's a little like saying that you're going to go live in the lifeboat when, you know, even life boats need somewhere to land."
   The frame after her conclusion is a very long meditation of Elon Musk. The founder of SpaceX, the project aiming to create hospitable environment on Mars, and he said, "I'm sure I have good dreams sometimes, but I don't seem to remember the good dreams. The ones that I remember are the nightmares." OK, Werner, I get your point.
  Anyway, we really need to think more about the technology, society and humanity we seem to be quite familiar with (or we pretend that we know). The nature of them is often unpredictable and consistently changing, that makes it harder for us to perceive and touch. Even though, we shouldn't give up any chance that allow us think deeper, broader and more abstract about the topic, in case one day we wake up and find us in the middle of the scenario: Internet dreams itself and we are running out hospitality of this planet.

這些年來與新目標

換工作過了一個半月,我突然沉靜下來思考許多。

說到這幾年來,從世界排名來看實在不怎麼樣,
只是名氣響亮的日本研究所畢業後,
因為沒有決心,又不受出版業界歡迎,加上莫名還有其他能力,
就這麼放棄了傳媒、網路、文藝這類以前很吸引自己的東西。
現在回想起來,我真慶幸自己這麼做了。
謝謝那些曾經拒絕我的、接納提點我的,公司與人,讓我更看清自己。

就在最近,從全球百大跨國企業子公司轉戰到本土金融業,
從職業口譯、特助做到完全不同的領域去,
拿了更高的底薪與年薪,時間卻突然多了好多,
一切都那麼的輕鬆自由,卻又有些無趣。

也許我就是不適合或不喜歡太安逸的生活。
我總希望自己有更多戰場,也許在海外,也許在新的領域。
繼續學更多、得到更多。

隨著年紀與經歷增長,
我認為公司越大,且從這樣的大公司領得多代表貢獻越多、身價越高。
畢竟口口聲聲說忙,
卻總是在小公司領"相對"大薪水、大公司領"相對"小薪水,
或是自營事業收益率和規模始終普普通通而自嗨的,
不管再怎麼忙,都會被我歸類在太安逸類型。
因為我就是那麼結果導向、績效主義思維的人。

人都是比上不足比下有餘,但我總是比上還想再比上,
胃痛,接著想要超越,吃相難看也不要緊,吃到再說。
這,就是下一步,我的新目標。
USCPA
Stanford GSB
說出來做不到只好丟臉囉。就這樣想吧。
我一定要說出來讓自己痛定思痛,發憤執行。
從往年慣例,我都是說了,不管花多久,多半會做到。

這些目標,跟工作一點也不犯沖,做好該做的,然後加分。

話說戒菸我以前老是在說,說了好幾年,
沒一次成功,算是我最常講卻做不到的。
但我說了,不管多久...
想一想,我已經戒菸一年半了!哈哈哈哈!
