第三十讲:攀岩感悟(3)

《财富》(中文版) 2011年04月27日

攀岩最经常给吉姆·柯林斯的启示还有两个。一是坚持训练,做好准备工作。二是要有BHAG,即宏伟、艰难和大胆的目标。真正的BHAG会把你逼到承受极限。真正的BHAG是能够实现的,但你必须在很大程度上改变自己才能实现。

高德思还有一点可以直接在攀岩和工作间相互借鉴的就是训练。训练打结、系绳索和其他环节,甚至团队精神也需要训练,因为这都是与你性命攸关的。

吉姆·柯林斯实际上,我想攀岩最经常给我的启示应该还有两个。一个当然就是坚持训练,做好准备工作,我的朋友总是笑我准备过了头。但我觉得过头一点也没事儿,毕竟石头不长眼,小心为上嘛。训练时一定要注意到最微小的细节。当年为了庆祝我50岁生日,我们打算到约塞米蒂国家公园里去爬船长峰,这段路线要求我们在黑暗中爬很长时间,还要互相交换绳端。所以,我们为此必须刻苦练习打结,打好了拆,拆了再打,无数次地反复练习,觉也没得睡。不能出一丝差错,因为一旦注意力不集中,就会犯错。所以你随时都要小心翼翼,坚持训练。

为了充分准备,我在家弄了一个攀岩训练房。有一天晚上,我妻子出来找我,发现训练房里一片漆黑,不见人影。吉姆,你在哪儿?然后她发现在攀爬墙上有一盏探头灯,原来是我关了灯,在黑暗中练习攀岩。练习,就是把更换支点、准备下降、移动等一切必须的动作在黑暗中练上无数遍。这样等到攀岩的那天,一切就能如行云流水一般顺畅。还有,团队行动时你也需要训练,什么时候该走,什么时候该停都有一定之规。 当然,有意思的是,攀岩过程中你仍然可以充分发挥你的创造力,毕竟每块石头都不一样,你需要发挥创造力才能想到如何爬上去。

 

   

Thomas D. Gorman: I would have thought that another directly applicable set between climbing and your work is discipline. The discipline of tying the knots, the discipline of rigging the ropes and the various other connections. But, even the discipline of teamwork, because your life depends on it.

Jim Collins: Actually, there are sort of I guess, two other things that relate to the concepts that show up a lot in the climbing. One really is the discipline and it's the discipline of, of course there's training, preparation, and my friends always laugh because I like to be over prepared, but that's ok, Because the rock can be bigger than me. The discipline to really focus on some very specific details. When we were doing the climbs in Yosemite for my 50th birthday on El Capitan, we were going to do a lot of the pitches in the dark and we were also going to switch ends of the rope. So, just the practice of tying your knot in and out, without making a single mistake over and over again, sleep deprived, it's not regimentation, because if it's mindlessly regimented, you'll make a mistake. It has to be very mindful. And mindful in the sense of constant discipline.

So in preparation, I have a rock climbing gym at home. And my wife came out one night and the lights were off and I'm out there, where's Jim? Then she noticed there's a headlamp out in the climb field and I had turned off all the lights and I'm in the climbing gym, climbing in the dark, inside. Practicing, you know, switching in and out of anchors, practicing setting up rappels, practicing doing moves, practicing everything I need to do, hundreds of times, in the dark, over and over again. So that, when the day comes, it's really like clock work. It's really like clock work, and there's discipline in the way you operate as a team. There's discipline when you don't go, when you do go. And of course, the interesting thing is, there's also an enormously creative activity Because you have to...every piece of rock is different and you may need a lot of creativity to figure out how to get up it.
