Dropbox 开创者在 二零一一 年的 MIT 毕业典礼的演讲全文

译文

“笔者不再计较让生活百科,而是试图让它有趣。”

谢谢 Reed 主席,恭喜全体 二零一二 级的同校。

很喜欢回到 MIT,也很美后天能和你们在一齐。我如故带着自个儿的 Brass
Rat,在毕业那天转动那几个戒指依旧是自己生命中最自豪的时刻之一。

有很多缘故使这一天很尤其,但本身为你们的欢娱的来由是,那是你们人生中再也不须求勾选框框的率后天。

在你们的头 20
年,生命里的中标表示从一环跳到另一环:获得测验战表、进入那所院校,上课、获得这些学位。进入二个好的单位,以便进入下1个好的部门。全体这一切都在今日完毕了。

网球,规划人生里最难的事是不亮堂要去哪儿,却期待尽快到达那里。大概你会创建一家商厦、治愈癌症或写伟大的U.S.A.立小学说。但哪个人知道呢?这几个事或者会错得不可信赖。笔者也不掌握。

明天在此地穿着长袍演说并不是自己七年前布署中的一片段。事实上,小编从不曾二个壮烈的安顿——而自小编未来发现到,结束学业后差不多向来不也许有这么3个陈设。

自身想了众多次,你们明天始发的生存到底有何样两样。笔者想过假若重来作者会做怎么着。你们通晓的基本上正是变得精晓和大力干活。但尚无人告知你,昨日过后,成功的的三昧改变了。所以笔者想给你们一张小抄,小编在投机结业的时候想要的那一张。

自己的小抄上从可是多内容。唯有多个网球、一个圆形和数字
两千0。忍一下,作者晓得今后它们还尚未其他意义。

自己 21 岁时在一家 Chili’s 饭店里成立了第②家同盟社。小编和协助实行创办人 AndrewCrick
都以第③遍。我们不晓得是否须要穿着西装去市政厅,或是制作公司印章来打字与印刷首要的文本。后来我们发现只须求到网上填写四个表格,大概两分钟就能够了。那有几许断断续续,但大家曾经起来做事情了。吃着洋葱圈,我们决定集团将为
SAT 制作一种全新的网课。那时候大部分儿女依然选取老式的 800
页课本,而其他网课一点都不好。大家给它起名为 Accolade,多个 SAT
词汇,表示赞誉荣誉。实际上,大家称之为 “Accolade
集团有限公司”,那样听起来更令人影像长远。

自家在回家的中途停在了斯台普斯,储备了一些卡片。很明朗,做工作最要害的步子是
PS
多少个注脚,然后打字与印刷一些片子,上面印着“创办人”。做工作的下一个步骤是在集会上把它们发出去,然后告诉女孩们“是的,笔者有一个商行。”那太酷了。

但最好的一对是读书各样新东西。小编各个暑假都住在兄弟会的房屋里,五楼有贰个楼梯通到楼顶。小编拖了三个卡其色尼龙折叠椅过去,还抱了重重从亚马逊购买的书过去,小编把各类周天的年华府花在阅读商场、销售、管理等自笔者完全不打听的地点。笔者并从未打算在
Phi Delta Theta 的屋顶上得到 MBA,但正是如此产生了。

两年后,事情初叶走下坡路了。作者觉得要获得进行尤为难了,有时候小编会心绪失控,不只怕解开关系平行线的数学题,或许不能够相见
3:45
离开萨拉热窝的轻轨。笔者想某个事情出现了难题。作者因为没有生产力而感觉到抱歉。创办一家店铺一直是本身的希望,大概,作者尚未那一个能力。

之所以作者休息了一小段时光。当然,假若你在 6
班,“休息”有时候表示写三个扑克牌机器人。对于这些不知底哪些是扑克机器人的同校,正是您在网上玩扑克牌游戏,坐着点了几小时的按钮,然后输掉全数钱。而多个扑克牌机器人则象征能够让电脑为您输掉全数钱。

但那是三个振奋人心的挑衅。笔者被它决定了。哪怕是洗澡的时候作者也会思忖它。早上的时候也会考虑。就如打开了二个开关——笔者猛然变成了一台机械。

拓展到中路的时候,父母希望我们富有的人去新罕布什(Bush)尔州过三回家庭周末。但本人确实想连续做我的扑克牌机器人。所以作者打开本身的Copac后备箱,然后把电脑和电线全体拖到了大家的斗室里。餐厅桌子不够大,所以本人把富有的锅和物价指数都移走了,为自作者的显示屏腾出空间。这一次是自身妈觉得自己出现了难点。她坚信自身随即就要进看守所了。

自家随即正是为喜爱的东西工作,但骨子里并不是如此。很简单说服自身正值做的事是保养的——何人想确认并不是吗?当自个儿想开那点时,小编了解的那一个最乐意和最成功的人不仅爱他们做的事,他们乐此不疲于消除二个重要的题材,对他们的话至关心珍惜要的业务。他们让自个儿想起狗追棒球:它们的眸子看起来有些疯狂,绳子放手它们飞奔出去,撞走途中的别的东西。小编有一对任何朋友也很用力干活、得到了富贵的酬劳,但她们抱怨像被铐在了办公桌上。

题材是很多人没有登时找到她们的网球。不要误会笔者的情趣——小编快乐和下一人一致的卓越条件测试,但变成
SAT 家庭作业届的天骄并不是本身想要的。让本身备感心惊肉跳的是,扑克牌机器人和
Dropbox
一始发都以让本人分心的作业。笔者脑海中那幽微的声响告诉作者应当去何地,但本身直接在让它闭嘴,那样自身才能回到工作。但有时候小动静才是最好的。

自小编花了一段时间才知道,工作最卖力的人并不劳动,因为他们顺练有素。他们努力干活,因为消除二个激动的标题一定有趣。所以明日过后,不要再强迫自身;而要找到本身的网球,这件带动你的事。只怕须求花点时间,但一连服从内心中那微小的声响,知道您找到它。

让我们回到小编结业的卓绝夏天,你就要来到的清夏。笔者男子会的三个弟兄,Adam
Smith,以及她的意中人 马特 Brezina
即将创办一家商店,我们决定联手在三个饭店工作,那样会很风趣。

那是多少个到家的伏季——大约周密。空气调节坏了,所以大家都穿着底裤编码。Adam 和
Matt全天候做事,但随着时间推移,他们不停被地下的出资人拉走,投资人会分享温馨的机要、带他们坐直接升学机。作者有点嫉妒——笔者已经为本人的商家做事了两年,Adam
只工作了多少个月。作者的直升机在哪个地方坐?

政工只会变得更糟。3月要到了,Adam
告诉本身三个坏音信:他们要搬出去了。不仅是太热了,还有他们要去硅谷了,他们做出真正的行路了,而自身却未曾。

老是自个儿给 Adam
打电话都会听到工作在如何进展。总是10分好。“大家前日下午见到了
Vinod,”他会如此跟作者说。Vinod Khosla 是 Sun Maxsun的一路创办者、亿万富翁投资人。然后 Adam
丢出了一枚炸弹,“他就要给大家五百万日元。”

笔者为他感到高兴,但那对本人的话是3个震惊。他是本身忠实的乒球果酒游戏伙伴,也是小编男生会里的哥哥,比本身小两岁。笔者不能够再有借口了。他随即要在场一流碗了,而笔者甚至尚未在选秀中被选上。Adam
当时并不知道,他踢了自笔者弹指间,小编正须求这一刹那间。是时候改变了。

大家通常说您是与你常在一齐的 陆位的平均值。花一分钟想转手:你的天地是哪四人?小编有3个好音信,MIT
是社会风气上确立这一个小圈子最好的地点之一。假诺自个儿没有来这里,作者不会赶上
Adam,小编也不会赶上本身神奇的一块创办人,Arash,也就不会有 Dropbox。

近日自家读书到了,让本人被鼓舞人心的人包围,和有天赋或用力干活一样重要。你能设想迈克尔·Jordan没有进来
National Basketball Association,他身边的 5 个人是一群英国人呢?你的小圈子拉动您变得更好,就是 Adam
拉动自身同样。

前些天你的圈子将会增高,会席卷你的同事和周围的各种人。你住的地点会有震慑:只有2个MIT,唯有三个好莱坞,唯有1个硅谷。那不是巧合:无论你在致力什么,一流的红颜平时只去3个地点。你应有去那里。不要在其他任何地方定居。结识小编以为的壮士然后向他们上学,给了自己伟大的优势。你觉得的大胆也是你圈子的一部分——跟随他们。借使确实的行走发生在别的的地点,那就去。

毕业后您会踩进的末梢三个坑是“准备好了。”不要误会笔者的意味:学习是您的重要职务,但现行反革命最快的读书方法正是去做。假诺你有二个盼望,你能够用生平的时刻来读书和规划,来为之做好准备。你今后应有做的就是早先。

与世隔开分离说,作者从不曾觉得本身“准备好了。”,直到大家的率先个投资人说了好,然后问我们钱送到哪儿。对于
24 岁的人的话,那便是圣诞节——打开礼物正是在 bankofamerica.com
上二次又2次刷新,望着你的商户账户从 60 法郎到 120
万法郎。刚伊始自身笑容可掬——那些数字里竟然有七个逗号!笔者截了张图——然后作者忽然有些反胃。有一天这个人会把钱要回去。小编本身到底他妈的获取了如何?

你们已经知晓那种感觉:在 MIT
大家称它为”用消防栓喝水。“它就像听起来的那么好玩,咱们都有内出血来表达它。但大家也学到了,那是对你有补益的。明天,一个阀门关上了。你需求出去找到另3个消火栓。

Dropbox
是本人的。正像你们揣测的,建设这家店铺是本人生命中最令人快乐、有趣和充实的阅历。但自小编并未当真说出来的是,它也是最屈辱、颓丧和惨痛的经验,笔者照旧数不出出错的业务的数码。

有幸的是,这并没有涉嫌。没有人在现实生活中赢得
5.0。事实上,结业以往,GPA
的真正概念就流失了。当您在高校时,每一种细小的荒谬都会成为你那面挡风玻璃的恒久裂缝。但在现实世界中,若是你不是每一次都转身去撞墙,就不会走的那么快。你最大的风险不是败退,而是变得太舒服。

Bill·盖茨的第2家商厦制造交通灯软件。Steve·Jobs的首先家同盟社做塑料口哨,能够让您拨打免费电话。五个都失利了,但很难想象她们曾对此很消沉。那是明日的变更中自小编最欢跃的工作。你不再指点表示您具备错误数量的数字。从现在上马,败北都并未提到:你只必要成功三遍。

本人原先担心各类各种的事情,但自小编得以回想本人平静下来的那一刻。我刚刚搬到里斯本,一天夜里笔者睡不着,所以作者打开了本身的台式机电脑。作者在网上读到“你的人生有
30000 天。”开头作者未曾想太多,但自作者豁然想在总括器上打出去。小编输入 24 乘以
365,然后——作者的天,笔者已经归西了大概 捌仟 天。小编他妈平素在做哪些?

(顺便说一句:你们过去了 八千 天。)

由此这正是 30000
为何出现在小抄上。那天夜里,作者发觉到没有热身、没有演习的回合、没有重置按钮。天天大家都在为大家的有趣的事写下多少个新的句子。当您死的时候,不会像“那儿躺了
Drew,他是第 1柒16个来的。”所以从那时起,作者不再计较让生活百科,而是准备让它有趣。小编希望本人的逸事会是二个铤而走险——那就形成了全体的分别。

本人曾外祖母明天在此间,前一周大家会庆祝她的 玖拾伍岁华诞。作者搬到加州后我们越多通过电话沟通。但有一件事从来让小编猜忌,她接二连三用一个单词来甘休我们的电话:“Excelsior”,意思是“一贯向上。”

今日在你们的完成学业典礼上,你们现实生活的率后天,那是自个儿为你们许的愿望。不要试图让生活百科,给自个儿随便让它成为3次冒险,并且永远向上。多谢。

Below is the prepared text of the Commencement address by Drew Houston
’05, the CEO of Dropbox, for MIT’s 147th
Commencement

held June 7, 2013.

Thank you Chairman Reed, and congratulations to all of you in the class
of 2013.

I’m so happy to be back at MIT, and it’s an honor to be here with you
today. I still wear my Brass Rat, and turning this ring around on
graduation day is still one of the proudest moments of my life.

There are a lot of reasons why this is a special day, but the reason I’m
so excited for all of you is that today is the first day of your life
where you no longer need to check boxes.

For your first couple decades, success in life has meant jumping through
one hoop after another: get these test scores, get into this college.
Take these classes, get this degree. Get into this prestigious
institution so you can get into the next prestigious institution. All of
that ends today.

The hard thing about planning your life is you have no idea where you’re
going, but you want to get there as soon as possible. Maybe you’ll start
a company, or cure cancer, or write the great American novel. Or who
knows? Maybe things will go horribly wrong. I had no idea.

Being up here in robes and speaking to all of you today wasn’t exactly
part of my plan seven years ago. In fact, I’ve never really had a grand
plan — and what I realize now is that it’s probably impossible to have
one after graduation, if ever.

I’ve thought a lot about what’s different about the life you’re
beginning today. I’ve thought about what I would do if I had to start
all over again. What got you here was basically being smart and working
hard. But nobody tells you that after today, the recipe for success
changes. So what I want to do is give you a little cheat sheet, the one
I would have loved to have had on my graduation day.

If you were to look at my cheat sheet, there wouldn’t be a lot on it.
There would be a tennis ball, a circle, and the number 30,000. I know
this doesn’t make any sense right now, but bear with me.

I started my first company in a Chili’s when I was 21. My cofounder,
Andrew Crick, and I had never done this before. We were wondering if you
needed to wear a suit to City Hall, or if you needed to make a company
seal for stamping important documents. It turns out you can just go
online and fill out a form and be done in about two minutes. It was a
little anti-climactic, but we were in business. Over onion strings we
decided that our company was going to make a new kind of online course
for the SAT. Most kids back then were still using these old-school
800-page books, and the other online prep courses weren’t very good. We
called it Accolade, an SAT vocab word meaning an award of distinction.
Well, actually, we called it “The Accolade Group, LLC” which we thought
sounded a lot more impressive.

I stopped at Staples on the way home to pick up some card stock.
Clearly, the most important order of business was to Photoshop a logo
and print out some business cards that said “Founder” on them. The next
order of business was to hand them out at conferences, and tell girls
“why yes, I do have a company.” It was awesome.

But the best part was learning all kinds of new things. I lived in my
fraternity house every summer, and up on the fifth floor there’s a
ladder that goes up to the roof. I had this green nylon folding chair
that I’d drag up there along with armfuls of business books I bought off
Amazon and I’d spend every weekend reading about marketing, sales,
management and all these other things I knew nothing about. I wasn’t
planning to get my MBA on the roof of Phi Delta Theta, but that’s what
happened.

A couple years later, things started going downhill. I felt like I had
to paddle harder and harder to make progress, and at some point I just
snapped and couldn’t deal with any more math questions about parallel
lines or the train leaving Memphis at 3:45. I figured something was
wrong with me. I felt guilty for being so unproductive. Starting a
company had been my dream, and, well, maybe I didn’t have what it takes
after all.

So I took a little break. Of course, if you’re in course 6, sometimes
“taking a break” means writing a poker bot. For those of you who don’t
know what a poker bot is, what happens when you play poker online is
first, you sit for hours and click buttons, and then you lose all your
money. A poker bot means you can have your computer lose all your money
for you.
But it was a fascinating challenge. I was possessed. I would think about
it in the shower. I would think about it in the middle of the night. It
was like a switch went on — suddenly I was a machine.

In the middle of all this, my mom and dad wanted all of us to come up to
New Hampshire to spend a family weekend together. But I really wanted to
keep working on my poker bot. So I pull up in my Accord and open the
trunk, and next I’m dragging all my computer stuff and all these wires
into our little cottage. The dining room table wasn’t big enough so I
started moving all the pots and pans off the stove to make room for all
my monitors. This time it was my mom who thought something was wrong
with me. She was convinced I was going to jail.
I was going to say work on what you love, but that’s not really it. It’s
so easy to convince yourself that you love what you’re doing — who wants
to admit that they don’t? When I think about it, the happiest and most
successful people I know don’t just love what they do, they’re obsessed
with solving an important problem, something that matters to them. They
remind me of a dog chasing a tennis ball: their eyes go a little crazy,
the leash snaps and they go bounding off, plowing through whatever gets
in the way. I have some other friends who also work hard and get paid
well in their jobs, but they complain as if they were shackled to a
desk.
The problem is a lot of people don’t find their tennis ball right away.
Don’t get me wrong — I love a good standardized test as much as the next
guy, but being king of SAT prep wasn’t going to be mine. What scares me
is that both the poker bot and Dropbox started out as distractions. That
little voice in my head was telling me where to go, and the whole time I
was telling it to shut up so I could get back to work. Sometimes that
little voice knows best.
It took me a while to get it, but the hardest-working people don’t work
hard because they’re disciplined. They work hard because working on an
exciting problem is fun. So after today, it’s not about pushing
yourself; it’s about finding your tennis ball, the thing that pulls you.
It might take a while, but until you find it, keep listening for that
little voice.

Let’s go back to the summer after my graduation, the summer you’re about
to have. One of my fraternity brothers, Adam Smith, and his friend Matt
Brezina were starting a company and we decided it would be fun for all
of us to work together out of one apartment.

It was the perfect summer — well, almost perfect. The air conditioner
was broken so we were all coding in our boxers. Adam and Matt were
working around the clock, but as time went on they kept getting pulled
away by potential investors who would share their secrets and take them
on helicopter rides. I was a little jealous — I had been working on my
company for a couple years and Adam had only been at it for a couple
months. Where were my helicopter rides?

Things only got worse. August rolled around and Adam gave me the bad
news: they were moving out. Not only was my supply of Hot Pockets cut
off, but they were off to Silicon Valley, where the real action was
happening, and I wasn’t.

Every now and then I’d give Adam a call and hear how things were going.
Things were always pretty good. “We met with Vinod this afternoon,” he
would tell me. Vinod Khosla is the billionaire investor and cofounder of
Sun Microsystems. Then Adam dropped the bomb. “He’s going to give us
five million dollars.”

I was thrilled for him, but it was a shock for me. Here was my faithful
beer pong partner and my little brother in the fraternity, two years
younger than me. I was out of excuses. He was off to the Super Bowl and
I wasn’t even getting drafted. He had no idea at the time, but Adam had
given me just the kick I needed. It was time for a change.

They say that you’re the average of the 5 people you spend the most time
with. Think about that for a minute: who would be in your circle of 5? I
have some good news: MIT is one of the best places in the world to start
building that circle. If I hadn’t come here, I wouldn’t have met Adam, I
wouldn’t have met my amazing cofounder, Arash, and there would be no
Dropbox.
One thing I’ve learned is surrounding yourself with inspiring people is
now just as important as being talented or working hard. Can you imagine
if Michael Jordan hadn’t been in the NBA, if his circle of 5 had been a
bunch of guys in Italy? Your circle pushes you to be better, just as
Adam pushed me.

And now your circle will grow to include your coworkers and everyone
around you. Where you live matters: there’s only one MIT. And there’s
only one Hollywood and only one Silicon Valley. This isn’t a
coincidence: for whatever you’re doing, there’s usually only one place
where the top people go. You should go there. Don’t settle for anywhere
else. Meeting my heroes and learning from them gave me a huge advantage.
Your heroes are part of your circle too — follow them. If the real
action is happening somewhere else, move.

The last trap you might fall into after school is “getting ready.” Don’t
get me wrong: learning is your top priority, but now the fastest way to
learn is by doing. If you have a dream, you can spend a lifetime
studying and planning and getting ready for it. What you should be doing
is getting started.

Honestly, I don’t think I’ve ever been “ready.” I remember the day our
first investors said yes and asked us where to send the money. For a 24
year old, this is Christmas — and opening your present is hitting
refresh over and over on bankofamerica.com and watching your company’s
checking account go from 60 dollars to 1.2 million dollars. At first I
was ecstatic — that number has two commas in it! I took a screenshot —
but then I was sick to my stomach. Someday these guys are going to want
this back. What the hell have I gotten myself into?
You already know this feeling: at MIT we call it “drinking from the
firehose.” It’s about as fun as it sounds, and all of us have the
internal bleeding to prove it. But we’ve also learned it’s good for you.
Today, one valve shuts off. Now you need to go out and find another
firehose.
Dropbox has been mine. As you might expect, building this company has
been the most exciting, interesting and fulfilling experience of my
life. What I haven’t really shared is that it’s also been the most
humiliating, frustrating and painful experience too, and I can’t even
count the number of things that have gone wrong.

Fortunately, it doesn’t matter. No one has a 5.0 in real life. In fact,
when you finish school, the whole notion of a GPA just goes away. When
you’re in school, every little mistake is a permanent crack in your
windshield. But in the real world, if you’re not swerving around and
hitting the guard rails every now and then, you’re not going fast
enough. Your biggest risk isn’t failing, it’s getting too comfortable.

Bill Gates’s first company made software for traffic lights. Steve
Jobs’s first company made plastic whistles that let you make free phone
calls. Both failed, but it’s hard to imagine they were too upset about
it. That’s my favorite thing that changes today. You no longer carry
around a number indicating the sum of all your mistakes. From now on,
failure doesn’t matter: you only have to be right once.

I used to worry about all kinds of things, but I can remember the moment
when I calmed down. I had just moved to San Francisco, and one night I
couldn’t sleep so I was on my laptop. I read something online that said
“There are 30,000 days in your life.” At first I didn’t think much of
it, but on a whim I tabbed over to the calculator. I type in 24 times
365 and — oh my God, I’m almost 9,000 days down. What the hell have I
been doing?

(By the way: you guys are 8,000 days down.)

So that’s how 30,000 ended up on the cheat sheet. That night, I realized
there are no warmups, no practice rounds, no reset buttons. Every day
we’re writing a few more words of a story. And when you die, it’s not
like “here lies Drew, he came in 174th place.” So from then on, I
stopped trying to make my life perfect, and instead tried to make it
interesting. I wanted my story to be an adventure — and that’s made all
the difference.

My grandmother is here today, and next week we’ll be celebrating her
95th birthday. We talk more on the phone now that I’ve moved out to
California. But one thing that’s stuck with me is she always ends our
phone calls with one word: “Excelsior,” which means “ever upward.”
And today on your commencement, your first day of life in the real
world, that’s what I wish for you. Instead of trying to make your life
perfect, give yourself the freedom to make it an adventure, and go ever
upward. Thank you.

骨髓炎的关键显示是肘关节持续性疼痛,关节运动受到震慑,尤其是在伸直肘部关节或旋转前臂的时候,疼痛会越发的决定。

并未患上平底足的人还要小心预防肋骨颈椎病,进行适度的体锻,做好丰硕的备选,对于久远实行体力活动的人,要专注制止肘部过度运动。还要注意适量的实行劳逸结合,有针对的进展移动。

布氏异养菌性关节炎病者应该适度的开始展览休养,制止肘部过度磨损,加重病人疼痛。

网球运动能够引发软骨发育不全,那第2是出于肘关节在展开伸展运动的时候力度相比大,肘部受损的火候也正如多,导致髌骨筋膜炎(畅瑞康舒肘通筋贴)的面世。

竟然很多肘关节活动不是累累的人,由于某个受到侵凌或胃疼的时候,都会促成肌腱纤维退化、老化,导致成人骨坏死的出现。
