浩洋说:

每年的SATI作文,香港考题都不太会在范围上调戏大家。老围绕着什么挑战权威啊、创新啊、团队合作啊、环保啊进行展开,很少涉及什么信息开放与隐私权的话题,什么民主自由啊,言论自由啊,出版自由啊,太过于调戏中国大陆小孩儿认知能力的题都没有。所以应该还比较放心。但是2014年底到2016 年改革前,SATI会有什么动作,真要看看今年年底这三场考试(10月、11月和12月)的变化。我也想看看到底这个评论式写作能变成个什么样子,或是用个什么样的形式做过渡。

2007年,我开始讲SATI作文儿。

当时没啥参考书,之前看过一个新东方老师(孙远)的作文分析。尼玛,那真心不能叫是什么作文儿分析。根本就是个对于历年作文的列举。但是国内貌似就是这样。大多打着作文书旗号的都是列举一些作文儿题,然后做个分类,结束了。

后来我看了一堆所谓的作文儿书,直到碰到了E.B.WHITE.他的The Element of Style无比好看,无比好看,无比好看!再加上他给扭腰客,我最爱的杂志之一供稿子,加深了我对他的好感。我又没有理由的爱纽约,所以就买了一堆他写的书,虽然很贵。

很多人觉得我作文儿教的好,以前讲课,教了一堆作文儿12分(满分)。其实我教阅读比作文儿好,因为如果作文儿写的逻辑清晰,阅读量一定要上来。具体阅读读什么,以及怎么读,阅读之后做些什么,这是一个优秀的阅读写作老师该讲到的东西,也是跟着老师读书和自己读书之间最大的差别。

回来说SATI作文儿,其实就那么回事儿,不难。

我主要从几个大块儿(作文儿的主要分类)说,今天先说俩,明天再说俩。

1、创新

创新是万能的话题。你去看看美国近几年出的书就能知道,特别特别倡导创新。其实道理很简单。只有新的,才能让大家的热情不减,不断有新贵产生,新首富出现,这样,才是最强动力。必须要承认,致富,不管你是第几代,什么代,都有的最基本需求。

创新里面有很多小话题,比如挑战权威。我在讲课的时候,会把挑战权威和创新放在一起来。首先呢,挑战权威不是说权威一定是错的。挑战这个思路也不是挑衅或者调戏,而是说要有批判性思维去看固有的陈旧的权威的学术的官方的说法。在这个过程里,要结合现实的需求来进行调整和改变,自然就会有新的想法出现。挑战权威是种极致的状态,其中权威一定是固化到一定程度的思维和想法或者体制、做法。挑战权威呢,自然就是对这样的固化的挑战,坚信新的想法、秩序和概念能带来更多的好处。

创新,也包括了坚定和乐观。因为既然是创造,肯定会有对旧有秩序的打破,自然会有传统秩序的捍卫者出来保护陈旧的、熟悉的、舒服的环境,追求稳定、希望事情能够被预期,不希望有太多变化,是人类共性。所以当有了叛逆者,有了反抗的时候,才会有那么多风险,有那么多阻碍,当然,也有了无数因为刺激而带来的乐趣。如果不坚持,不乐观,中间必然会挂了,一定会死在黎明前。

美国有很多书讲这个。我在读MBA的时候,有一门课叫谈判技巧。当时给我们上课的是一南非的教授,哥们儿跟着曼德拉一辈子,课讲的啥记不住了。记得他推荐了一本书叫OPTIMAL OPTIMISTISM,无比好看。在辩论、谈判中,是微观的挑战权威,需要乐观,需要坚持。

2、贡献和专注

美国喜欢把专注放在一个道德制高点,支持所有人追求自己喜欢的事情,然后专注的做下去。

我非常BUY这个观点。我喜欢专注。我喜欢专注的人。

专注是个啥?

说说我个人的观念。

专注,首先要有无穷的热爱。没有爱,就不能投入时间。专注第一要求就是时间。啥是投入时间?我定义,就是只要还有一口气儿,所有的时间都给了你爱的事情。

专注,是种状态。在你极致专注的时候,你的世界里是没有任何东西的,只有一个意念,就是要把你想做的事情抓紧做了,做到你满意为止。满意是什么,没人能具体定义,做到你做不动为止,大概是这个样子吧。

当你专注的时候,当你把所有的力气都贡献出来的时候,你的脑袋里是没有名和利这些事儿的。这是SAT特别喜欢考的对立面:钱权利VS真善美。倒不是说不追求,我觉得任何人说不追求财富,然后说自己为了人类灵魂斗争,都是扯淡。要不是就是超级大富豪,比如洛克菲勒、罗柴家族啥的,就是脑子坏了。但是,专注会让一个人投入,不带杂念,全身心投入。能在做事情的时候,脑子里没有名利,我觉得这个事情就是真爱,这样的状态就是专注。

我特别喜欢贡献和专注这个点。

我总说,能找到让自己专注的点和事情和人,死而无憾。
