有哪些不寻常的方式可以让你更聪明地工作,而不是更努力地工作?Gal世界播

Back in middle school, I had a teacher who often disguised his lessons as games. Gal世界播

回到中学的时候,我有一位老师经常把他的课伪装成游戏。Gal世界播


One time, he split the class into groups of six, and gave each group a sheet of grid paper. Then he took out a box of extra large candy bars and plopped it onto his desk for all to see. Gal世界播

有一次,他把全班分成六人一组,并给每组发了一张网格纸。然后他拿出一盒特大号的糖果,砰的一声把它放在桌子上,让所有人都能看到。Gal世界播


“Today, we’ll be playing an advanced version of tic-tac-toe,” he said. “Your goal is to get four in a row on a five-by-five grid. Does everyone understand what that means?” Gal世界播

他说:“今天,我们要玩的是高级版的井字游戏。”“你的目标是在5乘5的发球区内连续打出4个球。”大家都明白这意味着什么吗?“。Gal世界播


We nodded hungrily. Gal世界播

我们饥肠辘辘地点了点头。Gal世界播


“Okay,” he continued. “Within your group of six, three of you will form a team that takes turns drawing X’s, and the other three will form a team that takes turns drawing O’s. If your team draws your symbol in four squares in a row - up, down, or diagonally - then your team wins a candy bar. Those are the only rules. Cool?” Gal世界播

“好的,”他继续说。“在你们六个人的小组中,你们三个人将组成一个轮流画X的队伍,另外三个人将组成一个轮流画O的队伍。如果你们的队伍在一排四个方格上画你的符号--向上、向下或对角线--那么你们的队伍就赢得了一块糖果条。”这是唯一的规则。酷吗?“。Gal世界播


Another enthusiastic nod. Gal世界播

又一次热情的点头。Gal世界播


“Great. I’ll give you five minutes, starting… now.” Gal世界播

“太好了。我给你们五分钟时间,开始…。现在“。Gal世界播


My teammates and I turned to face our opponents, racking our brains for strategies to prevent them from getting to four in a row. We had a real sweet tooth for those candy bars. We were ruthless. We were at war. When we emerged victorious, we glowed with triumph. Gal世界播

我和我的队友转身面对我们的对手,绞尽脑汁想办法防止他们连胜四场。我们非常喜欢那些糖果。我们太无情了。我们在打仗。当我们取得胜利时,我们洋溢着胜利的光芒。Gal世界播


Then, when the five minutes were up, our teacher asked every group to describe their results to the class. Gal世界播

然后,当五分钟结束时,我们的老师要求每个小组向全班描述他们的成绩。Gal世界播


Most of the games had ended in an impasse, with both teams blocking up each other’s crucial squares until neither of them could win. Gal世界播

大多数比赛都以僵局告终,双方都封锁了对方的关键方格,直到双方都无法取胜。Gal世界播


Some of the games had ended in a victory, like mine. In those groups, either the X team or the O team had won a candy bar and split it into thirds. Gal世界播

有些比赛以胜利告终,就像我的比赛一样。在这些小组中,X队或O队赢得了一块糖果,并将其一分为三。Gal世界播


And then there was one group, in the back of the classroom, where the six students were happily munching away at six candy bars. Gal世界播

然后是教室后面的一群人,六个学生在那里愉快地咀嚼着六块糖果。Gal世界播


As it turned out, the teacher never mentioned that only one team could win each game. When those students realized that it didn’t have to be a competition, they’d simply agreed to share the board. The X team drew four X’s in the first row, and the O team drew four O’s in the second, and just like that, both teams had won. Gal世界播

事实证明,这位老师从来没有提到每场比赛只能有一支球队获胜。当这些学生意识到这不一定是一场比赛时,他们只是简单地同意分享董事会。X队在第一排打出了四个X,O队在第二排打出了四个O,就这样,两队都赢了。Gal世界播


They also realized that the teacher also never specified how many times a team can win. So they kept on drawing four X’s and four O’s, until they’d received a pile of candy bars and didn’t have any room left on their grid. Gal世界播

他们还意识到,老师也从来没有具体说明一支球队能赢多少次。于是他们继续画了4个X和4个O,直到他们收到了一堆糖果,网格上已经没有空间了。Gal世界播


The teacher then asked us to take a step back and think. Where in our lives, he asked, are we fabricating competition, when we really could be working together? Where in our lives are we assuming there’s some obstacle that doesn’t necessarily have to be there? Gal世界播

然后老师让我们退一步想一想。他问道,在我们的生活中,当我们真正可以合作的时候,我们是在捏造竞争吗?在我们的生活中,我们假设有一些不一定会存在的障碍?Gal世界播


Even after seven years, I still live by that concept. It’s one of the reasons why I make study groups with my classmates, instead of treating them as competition. It’s one of the reasons why I celebrate the successes of other candidates in my field, instead of vying to outshine them. Gal世界播

即使在七年后,我仍然生活在这个概念中。这就是为什么我和同学们一起组成学习小组,而不是把他们当作比赛的原因之一。这就是为什么我庆祝其他候选人在我的领域取得成功,而不是争先恐后地超越他们的原因之一。Gal世界播
