讀了今早 John Mauldin's Weekly E-Letter "Why I am an Optimist - John Mauldin's Weekly
E-Letter"
我不禁暗自發笑、我是不是像John的老爸一樣、每天所想的、都是
【精神收入】各位讀一
讀下面這一段:(很淺、很簡單的英文)
I get my propensity for psychic income naturally. My Less-Than-
Sainted Dad lived on psychic income. He was always trying to
invent something or launcha
new business.(我也是啊 !)

He had large ups and downs, (這不是說我‧還是誰?)
and at times we would be now
classified as below the poverty line.
(您老弟是真絕、一切言中、
真有把刷子)
Not that I knew that as a kid. Mostly,Dad
lived in his dreams,
though often alcoholic ones,(這一點不同) of a better future,
but he
never gave up. In his mid-70s he was re-inventing the
small printing press in
his garage, with plans for national
production. It was only after we had to take
his car from him
in his mid-80s that he quit.
It was a very sad day.(這
點不一樣、我們從來沒有困苦的
日子
‧)
I now know
we had not just taken his car, but far more than that:
his dreams, his psychic
income (等
等、好兒子、這旅館
怎么說、也值幾文、再怎麼著不
值錢、也不能屬於
【精神收入】吧、咱們再耐心地等它三五年,經濟總有
翻身的日子)

.....Why I Am Optimistic About the Future



I am optimistic by nature. An entrepreneur friend of mine
gave me a term that
I have grown to love. She calls it
"psychic income." It's that bit of hoped-for
future income
that is in our minds, that drives some of us, inflicted with
the
entrepreneurial gene, to do the next deal, make the next
big plan, scheme yet
another scheme to finally hit whatever
counts as the big one for each of us.
How
much better would our life be, how our problems
would go away, if only this one
thing would come about!
It has not yet become real income, yet we live and act
as
if it is almost real. We can feel it getting ready to happen.
It is still in
our heads, this psychic income.
Yet it is in some ways real for us.
.......


For some, I should note, psychic income is not just about
money.  It may be
about the next promotion or the next
big discovery. For some of us, it is just
having our ideas
accepted and validated in the court of human opinion.
It is
simply what drives us......
