灣區日報推薦 Darius ForouxStop Imitating The Habits Of Successful People: It’s Killing You按語寫的極其 cynical。短短一句話,既開了 Viktor Mayer-Schönberger 所謂大數據三大特性的玩笑,又點了 Steve Jobs 備受各方詬病的說話刻薄軟肋。

總結一句話:Correlation doesn’t mean causation. 即時你輟學、經常辱罵員工、喜歡穿牛仔褲與套頭衫,你也成為不了 Steve Jobs :)

Darius Foroux 用了很多文字解釋為什麼在模仿成功人士這件事上,為什麼 Correlation doesn’t mean causation。簡而言之,別傻了,每日早起,不會變成所謂的晨型(morning-type)成功人士的。夜貓子看了 Darius Foroux 的文章,應該頗感欣慰,又一個人為晚睡晚起說句公道話啦。

For instance, take waking up early. That’s always part of the lists of habits. But waking up is not a skill that does something. When you try to imitate a rich person who wakes up early, will you become rich by waking up early?

。。。。

Think about it. What if you get to a destination to find out that you arrived at the wrong place? That’s what imitation does.

模仿不保證你會走到正確的目的地,誰知道會你會走到哪裡,變成什麼樣的人啊? Darius 的結論很雞湯,但是蠻有道理,成功的第一步就是誠實的做自己啊!!
