  • There's one thing that's inevitable: Death.

    有一件大家都無法避免的事 ── 死亡。

  • Someday you'll breathe your final breath, before kicking the proverbial bucket.


  • How much time you have is anyone's guess, so it's important to make the most of life.


  • Live it to the fullest, do all the things you dream to do, and exit the world with no regrets.


  • But then most of us go about our day as if we'll live forever, putting off what's really important until tomorrow.


  • Today we'll be looking at those things we never got around to doing in this episode of The Infographics Show: 10 things old people say they regret not doing in their life.

    今天我們將要來介紹我們從未做過的事,這集的 The Infographics Show 為你帶來:年長者分享 10 件人生中後悔沒做過的事。

  • Steve Jobs was a visionary who left his mark on the world.


  • His company, Apple, revolutionized the personal computing world with the invention of the Mac, changed the way we listen to music with the launch of the iPod, and connected the world when the first iPhone was released.

    他的電腦公司透過發明了蘋果電腦徹底改變了個人計算機的世界,因為 iPod 的發行改變了我們聽音樂的方式,以及用 iPhone 與世界連結。

  • Jobs himself was known for his energetic approach to life, inspiring people with his motivational speeches.


  • Did he have any regrets?

    他有後悔沒做的事嗎 ?

  • You would think not, and his attitude towards death hints that he likely had none.


  • On his deathbed, Jobs looked at his sister Patty, then at his children, then at his life partner, Laurene, and then over their shoulders past them, before uttering his final words,

    在賈伯斯臨終前,看著他的妹妹 Patty,然後他的孩子,然後是他的生活伴侶 Laurene,然後視線越過他們的肩膀,說出最後的話:

  • "Oh wow, oh wow, oh wow."


  • His sister, Mona Simpson, described his tone as affectionate, dear, and loving.

    他的妹妹 Mona Simpson 將其發出的聲音解釋為深情、充滿關愛的。

  • Though Jobs left the world early at the age of 56, it certainly seems that he did so without regret.

    雖然賈伯斯 56 歲就離開人世,但就成就而言他似乎沒有什麼事可以後悔。

  • But then Steve Jobs is not your everyday kind of personhe led an extraordinary life.


  • What about those of us who will pass away without feeling that we have properly completed the journey?

    而我們那些在過世前不會覺得已經完成旅程的人呢 ?

  • It seems that many of the regrets people have are the same.


  • Looking at what the media says and the real-life experiences of doctors and nurses who spend time with old people at the end of their life, here are the top 10 most common regrets that we came across.

    注意影片說的內容以及在年長者最後人生階段常陪伴於其左右的醫生、護理師的生活經歷,以下是 10 大常見後悔沒做的事。

  • 10. I wish I had learned a second language.


  • Somewhat surprisingly, many people depart the world wishing they had learnt a second language.


  • Maybe they feel they would have been able to connect with more people in life if they spoke more than one language, or that travel to other countries and mixing with different cultures would have been easier.


  • It could also be that learning languages used to be much harder than it is today with heaps of internet resources, online classes, and language apps,

    也有可能是,跟現在擁有許多網路資源、線上課程以及 App 發達的世代相比,以前要學習語言困難多了

  • so this regret should not exist for much longer, as you really don't have any excuses for not following through and learning a language, if that's something you wish to do.


  • 9. I wish I hadn't worked so hard.


  • Bronnie Ware is an Australian nurse who spent several years working in palliative care, caring for patients in the last 12 weeks of their lives.

    Bronnie Ware 是一位澳洲護士,她花了幾年時間在安寧照護工作,照顧剩約 12 週生命的病人。

  • She was quoted in British newspaper, The Guardian, saying that this regret came from every male patient she had nursed.

    英國報紙 The Guardian 引用她的話,表示她所照護的所有男性病患都後悔這件事。

  • Because of working so hard, many people felt that they missed their children's youth and their partner's companionship.


  • Some women also spoke of this regret, but as most of the people she nursed were from an older generation when women tended to spend their lives at home, running the house and being mothers, this regret was much more common with men.

    有些女性病患也有相同的後悔,但大部份 Bronnie Ware 照顧的病患皆來自較老的世代,而那時的女人傾向待在家做家務並扮演母親的角色,因此這件後悔的事在男性比較常見。

  • That's now changed, of course, so it's likely that in the future, this regret will be high on the list for both men and women.


  • 8. I wish I had been better at expressing how I felt.


  • Bronnie also said that many of her patients expressed regret that they suppressed their feelings in order to keep peace with others.

    Bronnie 也有提到很多她的病患後悔為了與他人和平相處而壓抑了自身的情感。

  • Because of this, they never accomplished the things they wanted to.


  • Some of her patients even developed illnesses due to the bitterness they carried around as a result of hiding their true feelings.


  • Dr. Barton Goldsmith, who writes for online magazine Psychology Today, says that when you express how you feel, problems get solved, relationship issues get resolved, and life is easier.

    Barton Goldsmith 博士是線上雜誌 Psychology Today 的一個作者,說過當你表達你真實的感受,問題將得到解決,關係問題也將得到改善,而生活會更容易。

  • You'll also enjoy your life more because you're not holding on to unhealed or confusing feelings.


  • 7. I wish I had taken better care of my body.


  • If you don't look after your body, your time to leave will come much faster, so it's no surprise that many people express this regret on their deathbed.


  • Obesity, smoking, or excessive drinking can all drive you to an early death.


  • Most things in life can be replaced—a new car or a new housebut you can't nip down to the shop and buy a new replacement body.


  • So if this is one regret you think you might have when your time is up, it's probably better to make some changes today.


  • 6. I wish I had been more selective with my romantic relationships.


  • One of the most common fears that people have in life is never meeting their soulmatethe person they are meant to spend the rest of their life with.


  • And, of course, this can show up when death is near, with the regret that life was spent with the wrong lover.


  • Maybe a person has been in a toxic or abusive relationship, or they walked away from the person they were meant to be with.


  • Many stay in relationships because they worry they may end up alone at the end of life, but when they do reach the end, some of these people are suddenly faced with regret that the romantic choices they made may have been incorrect.


  • So if you think you're in this zone, maybe now is the time to get back to swiping on Tinder so you have no regrets in later life.

    所以如果你也有這種情況的話,或許是時候去 Tinder 網站再試著找其他人讓自己的人生沒有後悔。

  • 5. I didn't need to worry so much.


  • Karl Pillemer, a Professor of Human Development at Cornell University and the author of "30 Lessons for Living: Tried and True Advice from the Wisest Americans",

    Karl Pillemer,康乃爾大學人類發展學系教授,也是「生命中的 30 個教訓:來自最聰明美國人的嘗試與建議」的作者,

  • spoke to nearly 1,500 elderly people, asking them one simple question: "What are the most important lessons you have learned over the course of your life?"

    詢問近 1500 位年長者一個簡單的問題:「在你一生中學到最重要的是什麼 ? 」

  • One of the most common responses he received was people saying they wish they had not worried so much.


  • One example is John Alonzo, an 83-year-old man who had been a construction worker and who had battled a lifetime of financial insecurity.

    以一位 83 歲男性年長者 John Alonzo 舉例說明,他是一位建築工人,而他終其一生都在為財務困難而奮鬥。

  • But he didn't think twice in giving this advice: Don't believe that worrying will solve or help anything.


  • It won't. So stop it.


  • That was ithis one life lesson was simply to stop worrying.

    這就是他的一個人生課程 ─ 停止擔心。

  • 4. I wish I had spent more time outside of my comfort zone.


  • To quote Albert Einstein, "The definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over again, but expecting different results."


  • And if you spend a life doing the same thing over and over, waiting for something exciting to happen, then it probably won't.


  • Exciting things happen when you get out there and make them happen.


  • But it's often easier said than done, and many of us stick close to comfort in the hope of an easier life.


  • So when you reach the end and you're looking back on it as a whole, you'll be much more proud if you can say that the most unease you've felt was that day you went skydiving, not the time you had to choose whether to eat meat or fish at dinner.


  • 3. I could have given back more.


  • Most of us will wait until the bank account is stacked up with cash before deciding to give a few dollars to the local charity, but it seems people find themselves on their deathbed regretting that they didn't give more.


  • Giving doesn't need to be about money though.


  • More often, it's about helping and supporting others with what you can offer as a human being and expecting nothing in return.


  • Maybe you have useful skills or sometimes just a listening ear.


  • Imagine you're attending your own funeral, and you hear a friend giving your eulogy.


  • What would you want them to be saying?

    你想要他們說什麼 ?

  • Most likely you would want to hear them talk about what a great person you were, and how you had an impact on their life.


  • There's only one way to ensure you get a eulogy of this kind, and that's by giving back and by helping others.


  • 2. I wish I pursued my dreams and aspirations, and not the life others expected of me.


  • One of the most common regrets we found was this one: People who had arrived at the end of their life and had missed out on many of their hearts' desires because they were too busy living up to what others expected of them.


  • Our nurse Bronnie Ware said that most people had not honored even half of their dreams, and had to die knowing that it was due to choices they had madeor not madebecause of how others might judge them.

    我們的 Bronnie Ware 護士也有提到,大部份的人在臨終前甚至沒有正視他們一半的夢想,並且知道這是由於他們已經做出或未做出的選擇,因為其他人可能會如此評斷他們。

  • There's a freedom that comes with being close to death, but often that freedom is also when you realize the things you missed out on.


  • So if you have things you feel you should be doingtoday, not tomorrowis when to act.


  • And finally, 1. I wish I had spent more time with people I care about.


  • Many of us get caught up in the daily activities of lifeworking, shopping, raising the kids, holidays.


  • It's hard not to be consumed by the endless cycle, but then, later in life, we're faced with not having spent enough quality time with friends and family.


  • With all the research we looked at online, this is the most common regret.


  • Everyone misses their friends and family when they reach the end, and they start to regret not spending more time with them in life.


  • It can also work in reverse, where the people who are left behind also feel the regret.


  • In 2014, when President Obama spoke at a town hall meeting at Malaya University in Kuala Lumpur, he said,

    2014 年,歐巴馬總統在吉隆坡馬來西亞大學的一個市政會議說到:

  • "I regret not having spent more time with my mother. She died early. She got cancer right around when she was my ageactually, she was just a year older than I am now. It happened very fast, in about 6 months."


  • Obama's mother, Ann Dunham, died in 1995 of ovarian cancer at age 52, when Obama was 34.

    歐巴馬的母親 Ann Dunham 死於 1995 年,因為卵巢癌,享年 52 歲,那時歐巴馬 34 歲。

  • Well, that's our list of 10 things old people say they regret not doing in their life.

    以上就是我們提到的 10 件年長者後悔沒做到的事。
