6-美文好心情:差距

John and Bobby joined a wholesale company togther just after graduation from college the same year. Both worked very hard. After several years, however, the boss promoted Bobby to theposotion of manager but John remained an ordinary employee. John could not take it anymore, tendered his resignation to the boss and complained the boss did not know how to delegate and did not value hard working staff, but only promoted those who flattered him.

約翰和博比同年大學畢業後,被同一家批發公司錄用。他們二人工作都很努力。然而,幾年後,老闆提拔博比為部門經理,而約翰還是一名普通員工。約翰再也無法忍受,衝動之下寫了一封辭職信,並抱怨老闆不會用人,不重用那些敬業的員工,只提升那些奉承他的人。

The boss knew that John worked very hard for the years. He thought a moment and said, "Thank you for your criticism, but I have a request. I hope you will do one more thing for our company before you leave. Perhaps you will change your decision and take back your resignation."

老闆知道這幾年約翰工作確實很努力。他想了一會兒說:“謝謝你對我的批評。但是我只有一個請求,我希望在你離開之前再為公司做一件事情。或許到時你會改變決定,收回辭呈。”

    John agreed. The boss asked him to go and find out anyone selling watermelon in the market. John went and returned soon. He said he had found out a man selling watermelon. The boss asked how much per kg? John shook his head and went back to the market to ask and returned to inform the boss $1.2 per kg.

約翰答應了。老闆讓他去市場找到一個賣西瓜的人。約翰去了並很快回來。他說他找到了一個賣西瓜的人。老闆問他每公斤多少錢?約翰搖搖頭,回到市場去問,然後又回來告訴老闆每公斤1.2美元。

Boss told John to wait a second, and he called Bobby to come to his office. He asked Bobby to go and find anyone seling watermelon in the market. Bobby went, returned and said, boss, only one person selling watermelon. $1.2 per kg , $10 for 10kg, he has inventory of 340 melons. On the table 58 melons, every melon weights about 2 kg, bought from the South two days ago, they are fresh and red, good quality.

老闆讓約翰等一會兒,這時他把博比叫到辦公室。他讓博比去市場找到一個賣西瓜的人。博比去了,回來之後說:“老闆,只有一個賣西瓜的人,每公斤1.2美元,每10公斤賣10美元。這個人一共有340個西瓜,其中58個放在貨架上,每個西瓜重約2公斤,都是兩天前從南方運來的,新鮮,紅瓤,質量好。”

John was very impresed and realized the difference between himself and Bobby. He decided not to resign but to learn from Bobby.

約翰受到很大的觸動,他意識到自己與博比之間的差距。他決定收回辭呈並向博比學習。

My dear friends, a more successful person is more observant, thinks more and explores in depth. Chances exists in the daily details. For the same matter, a more successful person sees more and farther so that he can find out an opportunity and catch it to realize his aim. If a person sees one year ahead, while another sees only tomorrow. The difference between a year and a day is 365times, how could you win?

親愛的朋友們,成功的人更善於觀察,勤於思考和孜孜探求。機遇就存在於生活的細節中。同樣的一件事,一個成功的人會看得更多更遠。有人看到一年後的情景,而你只看到明天。一年與一天的差距是365倍,你怎麼能贏呢?
