[職涯] 堅持不見得帶向成功,但成功需要堅持

早上在James大的文章裡看到這篇對Amazon創辦人的訪談

非常喜歡這段Bezos的回覆

It does fit into my view. Our first shareholder letter, in 1997, was entitled, “It’s all about the long term.” If everything you do needs to work on a three-year time horizon, then you’re competing against a lot of people. But if you’re willing to invest on a seven-year time horizon, you’re now competing against a fraction of those people, because very few companies are willing to do that. Just by lengthening the time horizon, you can engage in endeavors that you could never otherwise pursue. At Amazon we like things to work in five to seven years. We’re willing to plant seeds, let them grow—and we’re very stubborn. We say we’re stubborn on vision and flexible on details.
In some cases, things are inevitable. The hard part is that you don’t know how long it might take, but you know it will happen if you’re patient enough. Ebooks had to happen. Infrastructure web services had to happen. So you can do these things with conviction if you are long-term-oriented and patient.
 的確,太多人都知道成功是需要累積的
但是,面對現實
當你走在黑暗的道路中,當永遠都看不到出口的時候
要繼續堅持自己的方向,繼續堅持自己的想法就是一件很困難的事情

檯面上的成功絕對不是偶然
這些成功的人當然是天才
但是更需要的是對自己信念的堅持
