这是你的船

Lately I am reading a book named “This Is Your Ship”. The ship was in dilemma that all the sailors were at low morale at first. But fortunately there was an outstanding captain who successfully converted the low-morale crew to a fully-driven one within 2 years. The captain keeps saying that it is everyone’s ship and everyone should be fully responsible for it.

最近我有幸阅读了《这是你的船》这本书。在一艘处于困境的船上,船员们起初士气非常低迷。但是,幸运的是,这艘船拥有一名出色的船长,两年里,他使船员们树立了并一直坚守着“这是我们的船”这一信念,成功地将船员们从低迷中拉了出来,团结一致、助力航行。

 

It reminds me of my company SIPC, which is just like a ship in dilemma due to falling oil price. And fortunately as well, we not only have an outstanding leadership, but also a group of responsible and professional employees, who are willing to strive for a better future of SINOPEC.

这本书不禁让我想到了我的公司——中石化国勘。因油价下跌,“她”也像一艘陷入了困境的船。而我们也很幸运,因为我们不仅拥有出色的领导层,而且拥有负责、专业的员工们。他们中的每个人都愿意为打造中石化更加美好的未来而不懈奋斗。

 

In this ship, we have Chinese, local as well as international employees. This ship is our home, and we share the same destiny with her.

在这艘船上,既有中方员工,也有当地员工,更有国际员工们。这艘船就是我们共同的家园,我们与“她”同呼吸、共命运。

 

In the virgin forest of Africa, a team has been doing daily work for many years. It is our Gabon team, and the oil field is just located in the virgin forest. On each shift, there is only one Chinese staff, who has to be there for 3 months until the next. Can you imagine how lonely it is to stay in the virgin forest not being able to speak Chinese at all? Can you imagine how dangerous it is to be “roommates” with vipers and Scorpions? However, no one flinch.

在非洲的原始森林里,有那么一支团队,日日艰辛工作,坚守了多年。这支团队就是我们的加蓬团队,他们的油田就坐落在这片原始的森林里。每一班轮岗,仅有一名中方员工,但是他,却要在这原始深林中坚守三个月之久。在这片原始森林中,三个月的时间缺乏沟通交流,这会让他的内心多么地孤独寂寞!在这片原始森林中,整日与毒蛇或蝎子等“邻居”相伴,这会让他面临多大的危险!但是,没有任何一个人畏缩。

 

When Addax was moved from Geneva to Beijing, most local employees quit. But Andreea was one of those who were willing to commit themselves to SINOPEC, and abandoned original life in her homeland without hesitation. Why was she willing to do this? That is because she was attracted by SINOPEC spirits and was willing to exert herself into our great mission.

当Addax项目从日内瓦迁移至北京时,多数当地员工选择离职,但Andreea却愿意继续为中石化尽职履责。她没有丝毫犹豫,毅然放弃了原来的生活,不远万里来到北京。为什么她愿意做出这样的选择?这是因为,她深深地被中石化精神所感染,愿意为我们的使命去贡献自己的全部力量。

 

Once when Andreea was on a business trip to Africa, she got the news that her father was very sick. At that time, the business was in the crucial stage, and her father was there waiting for her to come home. However, she chose to stay in Africa until the business was done instead of going back. Unfortunately, her father passed away while she was there and she even didn’t get a chance to say goodbye. Days later, I asked her whether she regretted for her choice, and she said: “it’s a shame that I didn’t make it. But I think my father will respect my choice, because that is my responsibility and commitment to the company.”

有一次,在Andreea赴非洲执行出差任务期间,她突然得知了父亲病危的消息。当时,一边是正处于紧要关头的工作,而另一边却是在等待她回家的父亲。她选择了留下,留在非洲直至工作全部完成,却也因此没能跟父亲做最后的道别。很久以后,我曾问过她是否后悔当时的决定,她的回答是:“没能见到父亲最后一眼是很遗憾,但是我想我的父亲会理解和尊重我的决定,因为这是我对公司的责任和义务。”

 

Those two are the representative common sailors of our ship SINOPEC. This is our ship and we share this same faith. This faith is upheld by all the Chinese staff; this faith is upheld by all the international staff; and this faith is upheld by every one of us. Ladies and gentlemen, I am so proud that I am in this big ship!Ladies and gentlemen, I do believe that our ship will definitely cut through all the wind and waves sailing to a much brighter future! (By Zhang Xueli)

这两名员工只是我们中石化这艘船上的普通一员。但是,“这是我们的船”是我们拥有的共同信念。这个信念,所有的中方员工坚守在心!这个信念,所有国际员工坚守在心!这个信念,我们所有的人都坚守在心!女士们、先生们,我很骄傲,因为我是中石化这艘大船的一员!女士们、先生们,我亦坚信,我们这艘大船终将乘风破浪,驶向更加光明的未来!(张雪莉)
