提 要

冷靜是非常的重要的能力,遭遇困難或競賽時,通常失去理智、先動怒的,都會提早放棄認輸;如果平心靜氣,反而能更快更好地達到目的。

Joe was an old man aged 75 years. He lived very happily with a beautiful family. His children grew up and moved to different cities in pursuit of a good career and future. He lived in a small village carrying the memories of his deceased wife. Joe had 4 grandchildren and they used to visit him during the holidays.

And it was the vacation time and Joe was eagerly waiting for the arrival of his grandchildren. He was preparing for the kids, cleaning the floor, mowing the garden, rearranging the household items, buying their favorite foods, etc. In the busy arrangements, he lost his favorite watch.

The watch was gifted by his wife when their first child was born. Joe treasured the watch and it became his sole companion after his wife's death.

He forgot the watch missing and happily welcomed the kids at home. It was only the next day when he was about to take a bath, he remembered that the watch was missing. He saw the watch last when he was arranging things in the barn..... He was very upset.

His grandchildren asked him why he was so dull and they were curious about what troubled him.

Joe said, "Dear children, I lost the most precious watch I have ever had in my life. It was gifted by your grandma and I lost it while cleaning the home! I feel like I'm missing my heart."

Joe was on tears and the children promised him that they would search the watch for him.

One granddaughter asked "Grandpa, do you remember where you saw the watch last before it was missing?" Joe told her "I guess it was the barn!"

The children decided to search for the watch in the barn, where was full of books, scraps, broken furniture, etc.

The children searched for more than 2 hours with the help of Joe and a servant but found nothing. Joe was completely shattered and asked the children to stop searching as they could not possibly find anything.

The kids were frustrated and didn't what to say to their grandfather.

One grandson asked others not to follow him and be quiet, then walked into the barn and sat there in silence.

After about 15 minutes, the little boy rushed to his grandfather, happily with the watch in his hand.

Joe was surprised and asked how he was able to find it. The little boy replied, "I sat there without moving and the barn was so quiet, you could even hear a pin drop. After a few minutes, I heard the "tick tick" sound from the watch.

Joe hugged the smart little one and shook his hand to show sincere gratitude.

This is the benefit of staying calm. With this, we can find a solution to almost everything.

解說

喬是個75歲的老先生,他有一個幸福美麗的家庭。他的孩子已經長大,為了追求理想職業和美好未來而搬到別的城市。喬住在一個小村莊裡,緬懷已故妻子的回憶。他有4個孫兒,他們會在假期來探望他。

剛好是假期,喬急切地等待著孫子們的到來。他打掃地板、修剪花園、重新整理日用品,準備他們最喜歡的食物。在忙碌的安排中,他最喜歡的手表不見了。

這手表是他的妻子在他們第一個孩子誕生時送他的紀念。喬把這只表視為至寶; 妻子去世後,手表成為他唯一的伴侶。

他忘了表不見了的事,高高興興在家裡接待孩子們。直到第二天要洗澡時,他才想起手表不見了。他最後一次看到手表,是在穀倉整理東西的時候…… ,這讓他非常沮喪。

他的孫子們問他為什麼呆呆的,也對困擾爺爺的事感到好奇。

喬說:「親愛的孩子們,我失去了最寶貴的手表,那是奶奶送給我的,是我一生中得到最珍貴的東西。我在打掃房子時把它弄丟了,我覺得我的心也不見了!」

孩子們向熱淚盈眶的喬保證,會為他找手表。

一位孫女問道:「爺爺,你還記得上次看到手表是在哪裡嗎?」 喬告訴她:「我想,是在穀倉!」

孩子們決定在穀倉裡尋找手表,那裡堆滿了書本、雜物、破損的家具等。

孩子們在喬和僕人的幫助下搜尋了兩個多小時,但什麼也沒發現。心煩意亂的喬,要求孩子們停下來,因為他們不可能找得到任何東西。

受挫的孩子們,不知該對爺爺說什麼。

一個孫子告訴其他人不要跟隨、保持安靜,然後他走進穀倉,靜靜地坐在地上。

大約15分鐘後,小男孩高興地拿著手表,向祖父衝去。

喬很驚訝,問他是怎麼找到手表的。小男孩回答:「我坐在那裡不動,穀倉安靜得甚至可以聽到針掉下來的聲音。幾分鐘後,我就聽到了手表發出的『滴答』聲。」

喬擁抱這個聰明的小傢伙、跟他握手,表示由衷感謝。

這是保持冷靜的好處。我們可以因此找到幾乎所有的解決方案。
