Process Is More Important than Result [过程比结果更重要]

  • 美国犹太裔心理学家弗洛姆有一部名著《逃避自由》,大意是说,人们对自由的态度近似>叶公好龙<,说起来人人都向往自由,骨子里人们却逃避自由。因为自由意味着自我选择,而自我选择就得自我担当,要想享受自由的快乐,就得承担自由的责任。现在社会的功利心越来越重,人们只追求结果,至于过程则可以省略;人们都向往自由,却不愿承担过程的责任和艰辛。
  • The American Jewish psychologist Fromm has a famous book, >Escape from Freedom<, which says that people's attitude toward freedom is similar to that of a >good dragon<, that everyone aspires to freedom, but at heart people avoid it. Because freedom means self-choice, and self-choice has to be self-responsibility, to enjoy the joy of freedom, you have to take the responsibility of freedom. Nowadays, society is becoming more and more utilitarian, people only pursue results, and the process can be omitted; people aspire to freedom, but do not want to bear the responsibility and hardship of the process.
