如何发家致富(不靠运气) How to Get Rich (without getting lucky):

  1. 寻求财富,而不是钱或者身份。财富是拥有资产,睡觉时都能挣钱。钱是我们用来转移时间和财富的东西。身份是你的社会地位。

    Seek wealth, not money or status. Wealth is having assets that earn while you sleep. Money is how we transfer time and wealth. Status is your place in the social hierarchy.

  2. 理解“君子爱财取之有道”是可以做到的。如果你暗自蔑视财富,财富就会躲着你。

    Understand that ethical wealth creation is possible. If you secretly despise wealth, it will elude you.

  3. 忽视那些玩身份游戏的人。他们通过攻击玩财富创造游戏的人来获得“身份”。

    Ignore people playing status games. They gain status by attacking people playing wealth creation games.

  4. 出租时间无法变得富有。你必须拥有资产 —— 生意的一部分 —— 来收获财务自由。

    You’re not going to get rich renting out your time. You must own equity - a piece of a business - to gain your financial freedom.

  5. 提供社会想要得到、但不知如何得到的东西。规模化后,你就会变得富有。

    You will get rich by giving society what it wants but does not yet know how to get. At scale.

  6. 选择可持续发展的行业,和可持续的伙伴一起玩。

    Pick an industry where you can play long term games with long term people.

  7. 互联网已经大量地拓宽了职业空间。大部分人还没有理解这一点。

    The Internet has massively broadened the possible space of careers. Most people haven't figured this out yet.

  8. 玩反复的游戏。无论是财富,关系还是知识,生活中所有的回报都来自于复利。

    Play iterated games. All the returns in life, whether in wealth, relationships, or knowledge, come from compound interest.

  9. 选择高度聪明,有能量的,以及正直这一高于所有其它因素的人,作为商业伙伴。

    Pick business partners with high intelligence, energy, and, above all, integrity.

  10. 不要和愤世嫉俗者以及悲观主义者合作,他们的信念会自我实现。

    Don't partner with cynics and pessimists. Their beliefs are self-fulfilling.

  11. 学习销售,学习创建。如果两个你都能做,你是不可阻挡的。

    Learn to sell. Learn to build. If you can do both, you will be unstoppable.

  12. 用特种知识,责任和影响力武装你自己。

    Arm yourself with specific knowledge, accountability, and leverage.

  13. 无法通过培训获得特种知识。如果社会可以培训你,就也可以培训其他人,然后取代你。

    Specific knowledge is knowledge that you cannot be trained for. If society can train you, it can train someone else, and replace you.

  14. 通过追逐真正的好奇心和激情获得特种知识,而不是通过追逐风口。

    Specific knowledge is found by pursuing your genuine curiosity and passion rather than whatever is hot right now.

  15. 学习特种知识像玩游戏,但对其他人而言看上去像是工作。

    Building specific knowledge will feel like play to you but will look like work to others.

  16. 当被教到特种知识的时候,是通过学徒制,而不是在学校。

    When specific knowledge is taught, it’s through apprenticeships, not schools.

  17. 特种知识通常是高度技术性或者创造性的,它不能被外包或者自动化。

    Specific knowledge is often highly technical or creative. It cannot be outsourced or automated.

  18. 拥抱责任,以自己名义承担商业风险。社会会奖励你权责、公平和影响力。

    Embrace accountability, and take business risks under your own name. Society will reward you with responsibility, equity, and leverage.

  19. 最负责的人有着奇异的,公开的,冒险性的品牌:奥普拉,川普,凯恩,马斯克

    The most accountable people have singular, public, and risky brands: Oprah, Trump, Kanye, Elon.

  20. “给我一个足够长的杠杆,一个立足之地,我就可以撬动地球” —— 阿基米德

    “Give me a lever long enough, and a place to stand, and I will move the earth.” - Archimedes

  21. 财富需要杠杆,商业杠杆来自于资本、人力、没有边际成本的复制品(代码和媒体)。

    Fortunes require leverage. Business leverage comes from capital, people, and products with no marginal cost of replication (code and media).

  22. 资本指的是钱。用上你的特种知识,承担责任,并展示出好的判断力来融资。

    Capital means money. To raise money, apply your specific knowledge, with accountability, and show resulting good judgment.

  23. 劳动力是替你干活的人。这是最古老的,以及最具争议的杠杆形式。劳动力杠杆会让你父母留下深刻印象,但是不要浪费你的生命来追逐它。

    Labor means people working for you. It's the oldest and most fought-over form of leverage. Labor leverage will impress your parents, but don’t waste your life chasing it.

  24. 资本和劳动力是需要许可的杠杆。每个人都在追逐资本,但是需要某些人给你。每个人都在尝试领导他人,但是需要有人来追随你。

    Capital and labor are permissioned leverage. Everyone is chasing capital, but someone has to give it to you. Everyone is trying to lead, but someone has to follow you.

  25. 代码和媒体是无需许可的杠杆。它们是新富们背后的杠杆。创造出来的软件和媒体一直在运作,哪怕你还在睡觉。

    Code and media are permissionless leverage. They're the leverage behind the newly rich. You can create software and media that works for you while you sleep.

  26. 有一个机器人大军可以自由得到 —— 它只是因为热力和空间效率的问题被打包在数据中心里了,用起来。

    An army of robots is freely available - it's just packed in data centers for heat and space efficiency. Use it.

  27. 如果不会写代码,就去写书和博客,录视频和播客。

    If you can't code, write books and blogs, record videos and podcasts.

  28. 影响力是你的判断力的力量乘数。

    Leverage is a force multiplier for your judgement.

  29. 判断力需要经验,但是可以通过学习基础技能更快地建立。

    Judgement requires experience, but can be built faster by learning foundational skills.

  30. 没有一种技能叫做“商业”,避开商业杂志和商业课程。

    There is no skill called “business.” Avoid business magazines and business classes.

  31. 学习微观经济学,博弈论,心理学,说服力,伦理学,数学以及计算机。

    Study microeconomics, game theory, psychology, persuasion, ethics, mathematics, and computers.

  32. 阅读比聆听更快,执行比观望更快。

    Reading is faster than listening. Doing is faster than watching.

  33. 你应该忙得连“喝个咖啡”的时间也没有,但不要让日程表变成碎片时间。

    You should be too busy to “do coffee," while still keeping an uncluttered calendar.

  34. 设立并强制实施一个乐观的个人时薪,也就是你每小时的工资。如果解决问题省下的钱低于时薪,就忽视问题。如果外包任务的成本低于时薪,那就外包。

    Set and enforce an aspirational personal hourly rate. If fixing a problem will save less than your hourly rate, ignore it. If outsourcing a task will cost less than your hourly rate, outsource it.

  35. 尽你所能,努力工作。虽然,工作的同事、工作的内容比努力更重要。

    Work as hard as you can. Even though who you work with and what you work on are more important than how hard you work.

  36. 在你所做的领域内做到世界一流,持续重新定义你所做的工作,直到成为事实。

    Become the best in the world at what you do. Keep redefining what you do until this is true.

  37. 没有快速致富的方案,那种方案只是让别人从你身上发财。

    There are no get rich quick schemes. That's just someone else getting rich off you.

  38. 通过杠杆应用你的特种知识,最终你会得到你所应得的。

    Apply specific knowledge, with leverage, and eventually you will get what you deserve.

  39. 当你最终变得富有,就意识到这不是一开始所努力的方向。但那已非今日。

    When you're finally wealthy, you'll realize that it wasn't what you were seeking in the first place. But that's for another day.
