  • I was not one of those kids that knew exactly what they wanted to do when they were growing up.

    我小時候也不是那種明確知道自己長大要做什麼的小孩。

  • In the last 15 years of my career, I've been an English teacher, attorney, video game creator and now, a toilet paper salesman, selling millions of rolls of toilet paper a year.

  • Life is about finding the intersection of what you really, really love with what you're really, really good at.

    人生的意義在於尋找自己真正熱愛和真正擅長的交點。

  • As simple as it sounds, it's really not that easy to find.

    聽起來很簡單,實際卻不容易。

  • After a brief stint as an English teacher, I went to law school and ended up becoming an attorney at a big law firm here in New York City.

    短暫當過英文老師後我進入法學院,最後成為了律師在紐約一間大型律師事務所工作。

  • Like most Americans, for the next two, three years, I was holding on to my job for dear life, working really late hours at a job that I thought maybe I was good at but certainly not one that I really loved.

    如同大部分美國人,未來的兩三年間我一直忙著工作,經常加班到很晚,也許這是我擅長的工作但肯定不是我真心熱愛的工作。

  • I then came upon the epiphany that it takes years if not tens of thousands of hours to get really good at something.

    然後,我突然領悟到要做到熟能生巧至少需要花上萬小時的時間甚至要花上好幾年。

  • I really didn't have a lot of time to waste.

    我沒有太多時間可以浪費。

  • This talk isn't for those that are just looking to quit their job because they don't like their boss or they had a long day at work.

    這支影片不是給那些因為不喜歡老闆或是長時間上班而想辭職的人。

  • This is for those that are ready to make the completely scary leap into a brand-new career.

    而是給那些準備跨出舒適圈邁入全新職涯的朋友。

  • So as you think about making that career change, here are a few tips I hope you consider and a few things I've picked up along the way.

    當你想要轉換跑道時希望你可以考慮這幾個小訣竅和我一路走來學到的幾件事。

  • First, there's three things to think about before you're ready to move on.

    首先,重新出發前需要先思考這三件事。

  • Number one: professional life is about learning.

    第一:職業生涯的本質就是學習。

  • If you're not even interested in learning anymore, that's a huge red flag that there might not be a future for you in that industry.

    如果你連學習的興致都沒有這就是在警告你,這個產業對你而言可能沒有未來。

  • Number two: career changes are often gut-driven.

    第二:轉換跑道靠的通常是直覺。

  • If you constantly have sleepless nights where you're wide awake staring at the ceiling thinking, "Oh, man. I can't live with myself if I never try to make this change or if I don't even actually investigate it," then trust your gut.

    如果你經常失眠,清醒地盯著天花板思考「天呀!如果我不嘗試轉換跑道或認真思考過未來那我就太對不起自己了」,那麼請相信你的直覺。

  • It might be time for that career change.

    也許這就是轉換跑道的時機。

  • On the flip side, one reason to not move on is short-term pain.

    另一方面,短期痛苦不該是轉換跑道的理由。

  • If you don't like your boss or people at the office are grating on you, that's actually not a really good reason to absolutely change your career,

    如果你不喜歡老闆或是辦公室同事很惱人,這就不是轉換全新跑道的充分理由。

  • because when you do change a career, you're generally gonna have to start from the bottom, and you'll probably feel a lot of short-term pain, whether it's through a lack of salary or lack of a title.

    因為轉換跑道後通常要從基層做起,可能會經歷許多短期痛苦,也許是薪水不足,又或是沒有頭銜。

  • Pain at any job is inevitable.

    每份工作中的痛苦都是無法避免的。

  • So now you're convinced that it's time to change your career.

    如果你確信現在是時候轉換跑道了。

  • Then there's three things to do immediately.

    那麼,就要立即著手這三件事。

  • First: network, network, network.

    第一:人脈、人脈、人脈。

  • No one ever builds a career without a good mentor or a good support network.

    建立事業需要好的前輩或良好的人脈後盾。

  • What I mean by networking is getting all the great advice that you can possibly get.

    人脈的意思是盡可能收集所有好的建議。

  • Technology has made it so simple to reach out to new people to say, "Hey, I'm thinking about making a career change. Do you have just five minutes to chat with me?"

    科技讓聯絡新朋友變得簡單,可以問「嘿,我在考慮轉換跑道可以借我五分鐘聊聊嗎?」

  • That passion and that hunger and that ability to be a sponge really attracts awesome mentors and people willing to give you their time to give you some good advice.

    這樣的熱忱和求知慾以及當一塊海綿的能力,會吸引到超棒的前輩和願意花時間在你身上的人進而提供一些好的建議給你。

  • So go out there and meet new people.

    所以,走出去多認識新朋友吧。

  • The second thing you need to do immediately is shore up your finances.

    第二件需要馬上做的事是建立財務後盾。

  • The reality is, when you change your career, you'll either start with a job with a lower title or lower pay or maybe even no pay, especially if you're starting your own business.

    現實是,當你轉換跑道時,要麼從較低的職位做起不然就是低薪,甚至是無薪,特別是選擇自己創業的時候。

  • So going out there and making sure that your finances are in order to make the transition less painful is really, really important.

    所以,確認你的財務狀況準備就緒才能減少過渡期的痛苦這真的非常重要。

  • For me personally, as I made the transition from being an attorney over to a video game creator, I wanted to have at least 6 to 12 months of personal runway in the bank.

    就我個人而言,是從律師轉職成電玩設計師,我需要至少 6 到 12 個月的銀行個人預備金。

  • 6 to 12 months might not be the right number for you, but be honest with yourself on what that number should be.

    你不一定需要 6 到 12 個月,但請誠實評估你所需要的金額。

  • Number three, if you're not ready to make the full jump right at this moment, then get your side hustle on.

    第三,如果你還沒準備好放手一搏,就先從副業開始吧。

  • Side hustles could be anything from volunteering with an organization that's in that new industry that you want to go into, could be starting your business part-time on the weekends.

    副業可以是尋找你想進入的新產業從中找一間公司擔任志工,也可以是週末兼職創業。

  • It's a free way to get a taste to see if you really love something.

    這可以讓你免費體驗到,你是否真心熱愛這件事。

  • So you're ready to make the move or maybe you already made the move.

    當你準備好向前邁進,又或許你已經跨出了第一步。

  • Here are three things you should think about doing, right now.

    現在,你應該考慮進行這三件事。

  • One: do not -- I repeat -- do not burn bridges.

    第一:不要……我重複一次,不要斷絕關係。

  • You spent years building those bridges, why burn them now?

    你花了好幾年才建立起的人脈,為什麼現在要斷絕關係?

  • The world is such a small place, especially with all these online platforms, that, believe me, you will see these people again and probably in the most inopportune times.

    這世界很小,特別是網路平台盛行,相信我,你還會再見到這些人 可能還是在最狼狽的時候遇到。

  • Number two: take stock of what you've learned in your previous career or careers.

    第二:盤點你在前幾份工作中所學習到的經驗。

  • Most likely, a lot of those things are really applicable to your new job and your new career, whether it's interacting with people, playing on a team or dealing with jerks and assholes.

    這些經驗大多也可能適用於你的新工作或新跑道,無論是人際互動、團隊合作 或是應付鳥人鳥事。

  • All those things are really universally applicable.

    這些能力到處都派得上用場。

  • You'll find jerks no matter what industry you're in; no one's immune to it, everyone's got to figure it out, and you probably know how to do it already.

    不管在哪個產業,你都會遇到爛人 無一倖免,大家都要想辦法解決。你可能也已經有了一套方法。

  • Lastly, when you start your new job, you're going to be nervous.

    最後,要開始新工作時,你一定會很緊張。

  • But don't worry, take a deep breath, because this is what I want to tell you: you're part of a new team now, and everyone around you is rooting for your success, because your success is their success.

    但別擔心,深呼吸一口,這是我想對你說的話:你現在是新團隊的一員了,身邊的人都在為你加油打氣,因為你的成功便是他們的成就。

  • So welcome to your new career.

    歡迎來到你的新職業。

I was not one of those kids that knew exactly what they wanted to do when they were growing up.

我小時候也不是那種明確知道自己長大要做什麼的小孩。
