via Facebook 我想在這裡囉嗦一則小故事: 一天,載著從國外回來的友人到setia walk去吃晚餐,友人嘴勺,要找好久沒吃過的道地美食,走遍了整個商場,最後停在一處招牌亮麗的中國餐廰外,從門外往裡瞧去,裡頭雖沒客滿,但卻佔據了大半個小小餐廳。我和友人說:有人潮的地方,食物不壞,就這間吧! 甫一坐下,待應送上菜單,簡單的一張顏色紙,用筆寫了幾個簡單的家常菜式,朋友點了她愛吃的,待應卻說賣完了或沒貨。。。結果我們隨便點了餐廰有了,一客青菜一客宮保鳮丁和一客豆腐,志不在吃,只想借個地方說說話。 後來餐具送上,是包裝在透明玻璃紙裡標明消毒的碗筷,外頭印上了一張人頭照,我和友人不以為意,待用完餐談完正事結賬時,價錢奇貴,待應生送上也印有同樣人頭的紙巾,我忍不住,問:怎麼妳餐廳都用這人的東西? 待應生回說:哦!我們剛收購了這間餐廳。。。。 我忽然感到反胃,離開前,友人說;紙巾沒用可拿回去用。我回答:拿去干嗎?看到這個人都會發恶夢。。。 後來再檢查賬單,他媽的那印上肖象餐具竟要收費,可是卻不能帶走。 感覺就像是進了一間黑店。。。 數月過後,在該處工作的另一友人告訴我說;這人到處招攬人進會員,會員費若干(對打工你我來說是天文數字),餐廳裡或是辦公室裡都要用印上此肖像的日常用品,如果你開的是餐廳,那會員都會聚在這裡用餐,製造假像,讓路過的人看到人潮。條件是,必須給用餐的會員打折50%。。。 友人還說,這人經常帶著皮膚黝黑高大的保鏢到處走動,聽說他揮金如土,最為哄動的一事是其中一名會員不幸逝世時,他動用了直升機,把葬禮搞得有聲有色,紙醉金迷。。 有一天,去另一客戶家,竟發現她的桌面上也放上一支印上此人肖像的牙膏,她說,此人最近會送出近千輛宝馬,所以要賺第一桶金就要眼明手快。 我心裡有不解的納悶;這種拉人頭賺快錢的遊戲已不新鮮,為何大馬人仍不在過去幾項前車之鑑中吸取經驗?為何有關的貿消部不採取行動?任這種勾當橫行霸道,讓國人血汗錢最後一去不回? 我雖不精明,但只知未來靠腳踏實地,富裕與否,在於心安理得,即使是贏得了全世界,卻輸掉了最根本的人性和自尊,這是你我想要的嗎? 天下沒有白吃的午餐,回頭是岸啊!朋友

Debunking the Myth of the 10,000-Hours Rule: What It Actually Takes to Reach Genius-Level Excellence May 04, 2014 at 03:34AM

"The secret to continued improvement, it turns out, isn’t the amount of time invested but the quality of that time. It sounds simple and obvious enough, and yet so much of both our formal education and the informal ways in which we go about pursuing success in skill-based fields is built around the premise of sheer time investment. Instead, the factor Ericsson and other psychologists have identified as the main predictor of success is deliberate practice — persistent training to which you give your full concentration rather than just your time, often guided by a skilled expert, coach, or mentor. It’s a qualitative difference in how you pay attention, not a quantitative measure of clocking in the hours."
