Win

leave a comment »

Dale Carnegie이 쓴 “카네기 인간관계론”의 원서 제목은 “How to Win Friends & Influence People”이다. 20대 후반, 부족한 영어 실력이었지만 이 책을 원서로 읽기에 도전했다. 제목부터 걸렸다. 어떻게 친구를 ‘Win’, 승리하고 쟁취한다는 것인가?

‘Win’의 기본적 의미는 ‘승리하다’, ‘쟁취하다’이다. 반대말은 ‘Lose’, ‘Loss’이다.

 

On some issues – like Obama’s diplomatic overture to Iran – It’s too early to tell whether they’re political wins or losses.

PhD, Prize, Scholarship 등을 획득하는 것도 Win이다. ‘Win friends’처럼 얻거나 가지게 되는 것 역시 Win이다.
