你能承担得起怎样的成本?

不止一个人与我讨论了,也不知道多少人都有过类似的问题,他们说:希望和别人真诚相对,做个好朋友、好的合作伙伴,可是总不自觉地给自己上上保护锁,一定得留得一手资料,话语总得在说的时候咽下一半,行事之前务必让自己反复思虑,还是少走半步,免得所受的伤害过大……这样的话,可以算是畏首畏尾吧,也算是安全了,我们可以把这种心理行为叫做“假象的负面预期”,那就是把行为的结果全部消极化。比如:

 

作为上司就猜测:“我说了这话,员工会不会认为我有成见?”

员工或学生在做决定之前会过分考虑,别人会怎样地眼光做出怎样的猜测……

年轻人则会猜测:我这么说出口之后,会不会在被拒绝后连普通朋友都做不成?

如此一来,事情的运作被复杂化,结果被消极化,沟通被迟钝化,一些隐隐约约难以呈现真实面目,想采取的行动又被“假象的负面预期”消磨殆尽,日复一日,工作学习都劳累无比。

 

这种情况,我们可以拿开饭店做生意来比较,从而来减轻做决定前的忧虑愁绪,大家都知道开饭店会盈利,很多人都想拥有一家属于自己经营的店铺,可是成为老板的人又少之又少(相比有开店意愿的人而言)。

 

  • 首先,开饭店之前需要有一间铺子,这个就吓退了一批想开店的人,其实除了买店面,还可以租,甚至可以与别的店面合并、共用一地,先占得一只脚跟,再图长远发展……
  • 其次,开店盈利需要时间积累,不是一件事情一旦开始立刻就会有明显的结果浮出水面,这个又有一批人难以耐心等待,会用大部分的精力去计算和怀疑盈利所需要等待的时日。
  • 另外,还有一旦当开店不成功,又无法瞬间将店面外兑的时候,店上的装饰画面、客人用过的旧碗筷,为了本店做的昂贵的装饰和招牌都很难再被利用,只能廉价当做废品卖给回收处,这个是凡开店之人都该做好的心理准备。

 

这些便是真正的成本:当你需要去做决定的时候,不管成败与否,为了这个决定所准备的系列无法避免、也无法回收的付出,就是成本,如果你想不做任何的付出与风险承担,还做什么生意呢?你想把所有的风险都避免在做决定之前,那还做什么领导,做什么决定呢?

 

试想,你把所忧虑的一切都当做是做决定的成本,把做结果达成作为一件生意,岂不简单有条理?设想如下:

 

我想告诉员工,你迟到3次了,而且会议缺席,不是没考虑你最近闹离婚,而是已经到达了一定的限制,你必须得到相应的惩罚,这是一件事情执行的最初目的,若员工肯能因此辞职,那便是下达惩罚命令的成本和风险;

 

我想告诉老板,主管不是一次两次欺负和强占我的设计成果了,那好,老板知道了为你做主这是最初想达成的目的,那么,老板和主管沆瀣一气,你被迫下岗走人就是成本和风险,这恰似一场生意;

 

我想追得一个女孩子,平日是好朋友,其一、追到手了便此生无憾,可是那人眼光甚高,追不到了以后见面甚为尴尬;其二、花费一年青春去讨好逢迎她,也未必见得成效,那到底是规矩一下自己的行为还是开始行动呢?若是把它当做一件生意,你能承受多大成本,尤其是像投资店里装修字画、很难回收的字画、碗筷那样的成本,可以承受么?

 

当你给出自己答案,“可以”,或者“不可以”的时候,你就知道怎么做了。

  6. With havin so much content do you ever run into any problems of plagorism or copyright infringement? My blog has a lot of exclusive content I’ve either created myself or outsourced but it appears a lot of it is popping it up all over the web without my authorization. Do you know any methods to help stop content from being ripped off? I’d truly appreciate it.
