Put the Glass Down 放下玻璃杯

 

端起

 

A lecturer was giving a lecture to his student on stress management.

一位老師正在給他的學生講如何處理壓力。

He raised a glass of water and asked the audience, “How heavy do you think this glass of water is?”

他端著一杯水,然后問學生:“你們認為這杯水有多重?”

The students' answers ranged from 20g to 500g.

學生們的回答從20g到500g不等。

"It does not matter on the absolute weight. It depends on how long you hold it. If I hold it for a minute, it is OK. If I hold it for an hour,I will have an ache in my right arm. If I hold it for a day, you will have to call an ambulance. It is the exact same weight, but the longer I hold it, the heavier it becomes."

它的實際重量并不重要,這取決于你端它多久。倘若我端它一分鐘,沒問題。如果我端它一個鐘頭,我的右手臂將會感覺疼痛。假如我一整天都端著它,你們就要叫輛救護車了。我端著它越久,它就越重,這才是它準確的重量。”

"If we carry our burdens all the time, sooner or later, we will not be able to carry on, the burden becoming increasingly heavier."

“如果我們總是背負著擔子,遲早,我們將無法承受,這個擔子則會變得愈加沉重。”

“What you have to do is to put the glass down, rest for a while before holding it up again.”

“你需要做的就是放下杯子,在端著它之前要休息一會兒。”

We have to put down the burden periodically,so that we can be refreshed and are able to carry on.

我們必須要不定時地放下杯子,這樣我們才能恢復力氣繼續端起它。

So before you return home from work tonight, put the burden of work down. Don’t carry it back home. You can pick it up tomorrow.

因此,今晚回家后,放下擔子。不要將它帶回家。你可以明天再擔起它。

Whatever burdens you are having now on your shoulders, let it down for moment if you can.

不管你肩上有什么擔子,如果可以的話,先放下一會兒。

Life is short, enjoy it!

人生短暫,要懂得珍惜!
