The Best Team / 最佳團隊

某天我在餐桌前吃早點時,呈現一種放空的狀態,盯著眼前的信用卡帳單背面,琳瑯滿目的度假飯店,當下很想打電話預訂,完全不管飯店是在礁溪還是墾丁。不過說來奇怪,工作量全都在我可以負荷的範圍內,承受力卻有些不如之前,最近也特別容易上火,也許是之前累積下來的量到了某個點。

One morning when I was having breakfast, I was so fatigued that I couldn’t think. I stared at the back of the credit card bill on which I found the ads of several resort hotels. At that moment I felt the urge to call and book a room. I have been longing to take a few days off and do nothing. Yet I am not really loaded with more work than I can take. Maybe I have accumulated enough pressure along the way, and now it’s time to let it all out.

儘管如此,我更想要找到出路,我希望每天早上起床時都是歸零的狀態。上帝其實是公平的,越是在這種時候,身邊的人會對我說些體貼的話。季節先生說:「很謝謝我合作的人是妳。」,在一段旅程要接近終點聽到這句話,特別感心;我知道我和一群很棒的小朋友合作,棒到別人老是在抱怨時,我想不出有甚麼讓我能夠數落的地方,只能暗自慶幸。

However, I don’t want to run away. Instead, I desire more than anything else to find a balance right here and now. I hope that when I get up every morning, I have forgotten yesterday’s problems. I notice that the more stressed I am, the more considerate people are to me. For example, Mr. Season said to me, “I am glad you are my partner.” I was touched beyond the description of words when I heard it, especially when one of our journeys is about to end. Besides, I have to admit to myself again and again that I have the best team in the world. I work with such great kids that I have nothing to complain about. I can only thank God for my damned good luck.

也許我們都不是最聰明或最優秀的人,但是我們都很努力,而且有著同樣的目標,希望別人在下星期的成發裡都可以感受到那短短十分鐘背後的用心!

Maybe we are neither the smartest nor the best, but we are no doubt the most hard-working people with the same goal. And I truly hope that others get to see how much effort lies behind everyone’s ten-minute presentation on the stage next week!
