人生基本五項: 五行之金木水火土 / Top Five in Life: The five elements of metal, wood, water, fire and earth ( Part 2 )

寫完上一篇【人生的基本五項】之「金 Finance」之後,中國上海的股市指数趺了大約18%,加拿大某報紙評論,很多狂炒股票的外圍人,他們不是職業「投資者」,他們是賭徒,市場是不正常地被人炒高和抬高,超越了商界的真正生產能量,股市遲早会有再下降correction的机会。但問題就是很多人仍是相信,金錢財富是人生主要目的,正如賭徒一樣,物質享受是越多是越好,卻忘記了人生的其它意義。

我現在返回正題,繼續討論轉換職業或提早退休,需要考慮的因素,將人生基本的第二和第三項簡述如下。

木 Social:

我的聯想是二木成林,人是合羣動物,人与人之間需要聯絡社交。除非是獨居隱仕,面壁僧侶,或患上了嚴重的自閉症或精神病者,人都需要有朋有伴。在日常工作環境,我們和同事雖不是深交,但亦有談有笑,有傾有講。辭了職後,每日接觸的人少了很多,或需要打入新的社交圈子,這個因素对自己重不重要?

水 Intellect:

【孫子兵策】說: 『... 水無常形,故兵形如水... 』,智慧心思是也。在每日工作期間,我們不停的動用腦根,以我來說, intellectual challenge這因素是頗重要,沒有思想智慧,人和植物就沒大分別, I think therefore I am。但轉工或退休之後,這情形会不会突然改変?腦子細胞会不会生銹?新環境是否会令人「悶得要死」?

下次会談最後的兩個考慮因素, 「火 Health」和「土 Spiritual」

(續)

我想請教怎麼樣可以將google的影片.
一按就會在置頂播放呢?

你用五行的比喻很有意思。

任何的改變都意味著有未知之數,所以多少都會引起疑惑、甚至不安。亦因此,認識自己是很重要的。認識自己,清楚自己的需要、追求,那麼,在決策時,就能為自己分析形勢與後果,再慎重作出較恰當的決定。

上面xiao zhu 提到的解釋.
無論職場上,在愛情上是否可能呢?

xiao zhu said...

紗繪,你好!

其實你提出的問題我不太明白。不過我上面說的,倒不是甚麼解釋,只是一些經驗跟感受,基本上,我想都會適用於大部分的處境吧。

生而有限,活而無限,形聲軀體,運色而行!
人可細分金木水火土,誠也萬物皆一體化!

想不到轉工退休也有另一番人生體會, 期待火與土的演繹 :)

Dear xiao zhu :

這樣一來,愛情也很難學習呢~
懂得愛人,也學習愛這字.
但是,對於愛情...

學習活出生命就是困難的啊!我只有一千零一招,用"心"。

I don't see collegues after work, i seperate my 'circle' very clear, so i never worry about quit the job will need to develop new 'circle', i only worry about no money.

When you have more leisure, you will find other things to do.

紗繪: 那個feature是Blogger設置的,我不是developer,只是一個user。

In Blogger:
Click "customize" on menu bar at top; choose "Add a Page Element"; select video, photo, message, and/or other options shown; if you choose video, type in the name of the artist and Goggle will provide you with what they have in stock; click "preview"; click "save/cancel"; et viola !!

Xiao Zhu: " ... 你用五行的比喻很有意思。..."

五行相生相剋,在数學或然率來計,可有5x4x3x2x1=120個變化。我也和您有同感,認識自己,分析形勢與後果,在决定過程真是很重要的。

風信子/Hyacinthus: 多謝來言,我答应今晚一定登稿:)

Vicky: The less variables you have to worry abt, the easier it will be to resolve a siutation. So, it seems in your case, you will need to balance your life style against your income.

For a given life style, you will need X dollars per month. Can you therefore earn $X from another job or jobs? Or, are you stuck with working for the exisiting employer, and for how long? Will you be happy, or be willing to put up?

I am working on saving more money to deal with change, i am afraid if i change another job, that job is not suit me, then i am unemployed, i really want to change, i fail to change this year, now i try to let myself work for 2 more years, then plan again, i hope i can pass this 2 years.

微豆 said...

Vicky: You have not "failed", it is just a matter of getting yourself better prepared before making the change. Assuming your budget plan figures are good, two years will go by quickly !!!
