My big idea
私の大きなアイディアは
00:15
is a very, very small idea
とてもとても小さなものですが
00:17
that can unlock
我々の中に眠っている
00:19
billions of big ideas
何百万のより大きなアイディアを
00:21
that are at the moment dormant inside us.
解き放つことが出来ます
00:24
And my little idea that will do that
その小さなアイディアとは
00:27
is sleep.
睡眠です
00:29
(Laughter)
(笑)
00:31
(Applause)
(拍手)
00:33
This is a room of type-A women.
この会場にいる多くの皆さんは
00:37
This is a room
バリバリ働くタイプの女性
00:41
of sleep-deprived women.
睡眠不足になりがちな女性です
00:43
And I learned the hard way,
私は睡眠の大切さを
00:46
the value of sleep.
身をもって学びました
00:48
Two-and-a-half years ago,
2年半前 私は
00:50
I fainted from exhaustion.
疲労から意識を失いました
00:52
I hit my head on my desk. I broke my cheekbone,
頭を机に打ち 頬骨を骨折し
00:54
I got five stitches on my right eye.
右目の上を5針縫いました
00:57
And I began the journey
こうして私は睡眠の大切さを
01:00
of rediscovering the value of sleep.
再発見する旅に出たのです
01:02
And in the course of that,
この旅路の途中
01:05
I studied,
医者や科学者に会って
01:07
I met with medical doctors, scientists,
学んだことを
01:09
and I'm here to tell you
皆さんに申し上げます
01:11
that the way to a more productive,
より生産的で エキサイティング
01:13
more inspired, more joyful life
かつ喜びに満ちた人生をもたらすものは
01:16
is getting enough sleep.
十分な睡眠なのです
01:18
(Applause)
(拍手)
01:21
And we women are going to lead the way
私たち女性が
01:26
in this new revolution, this new feminist issue.
この新たな革命の指揮を取るのです
01:29
We are literally going to sleep our way to the top, literally.
眠ることによって トップの座を得るのです
01:33
(Laughter)
(笑)
01:36
(Applause)
(拍手)
01:38
Because unfortunately
残念ながら男性にとって
01:43
for men,
睡眠不足が
01:45
sleep deprivation has become a virility symbol.
男らしさの象徴になっています
01:47
I was recently having dinner with a guy
先日ある男性と食事をしたのですが
01:51
who bragged that he had only gotten
彼は前夜4時間しか寝てないことを
01:53
four hours sleep the night before.
自慢げに語っていました
01:55
And I felt like saying to him -- but I didn't say it --
口にはしてませんが 心に思ってたのは
01:57
I felt like saying, "You know what?
「なにそれ? もし5時間
02:00
If you had gotten five,
寝てたらこの夕食ももっと
02:02
this dinner would have been a lot more interesting."
盛り上がっていたのにね」
02:04
(Laughter)
(笑)
02:07
There is now a kind of sleep deprivation
今日では睡眠不足が
02:10
one-upmanship.
流行っているようです
02:12
Especially here in Washington, if you try to make a breakfast date,
特にここワシントンで朝食デートを
02:14
and you say, "How about eight o'clock?"
する際に「8時でどう?」と訊くと
02:17
they're likely to tell you, "Eight o'clock is too late for me,
大抵の場合は「8時は遅すぎるな
02:19
but that's okay, I can get a game of tennis in
まぁいいや テニスをして電話会議も
02:21
and do a few conference calls and meet you at eight."
済まして8時に会いに行くよ」となります
02:23
And they think that means
こう言うことで彼らは自分が
02:26
that they are so incredibly busy and productive,
超多忙で超生産的であると
02:28
but the truth is they're not,
信じていますが これは誤解です
02:31
because we, at the moment,
ビジネス界 ファイナンス業界
02:34
have had brilliant leaders
政界にも目茶苦茶な
02:36
in business, in finance, in politics,
意思決定を行う ご立派な
02:38
making terrible decisions.
リーダーが大勢いますからね
02:41
So a high I.Q.
I.Q.が高ければ
02:44
does not mean that you're a good leader,
優れたリーダーであるとは限りません
02:46
because the essence of leadership
リーダーに求められるのは
02:49
is being able to see the iceberg
タイタニックが衝突する前に
02:51
before it hits the Titanic.
氷山を見つけられる力です
02:53
And we've had far too many icebergs
我々は途方もない数の氷山を
02:56
hitting our Titanics.
タイタニックにぶつけてきました
02:59
In fact, I have a feeling
もしリーマンブラザーズが
03:01
that if Lehman Brothers
リーマンブラザーズ&シスターズだったら
03:03
was Lehman Brothers and Sisters,
破綻しなくて済んだのではないか
03:05
they might still be around.
と私は思っています
03:07
(Applause)
(拍手)
03:09
While all the brothers were busy
ブラザーズ(男性)がみな忙しく
03:12
just being hyper-connected 24/7,
休みなく24時間で働き続けている中
03:14
maybe a sister would have noticed the iceberg,
シスター(女性)は氷山に気づいたかもしれません
03:17
because she would have woken up from a seven-and-a-half- or eight-hour sleep
7 - 8時間の睡眠から目覚めた彼女なら
03:20
and have been able to see
物事をもっと大きな視野で
03:24
the big picture.
見ることが出きるからです
03:26
So as we are facing
現在私たちは
03:28
all the multiple crises
世界中で
03:30
in our world at the moment,
いくつもの問題を抱えています
03:32
what is good for us on a personal level,
一人一人にとって良いこと
03:35
what's going to bring more joy, gratitude,
人生に より多くの喜び 感謝
03:38
effectiveness in our lives
充実をもたらし
03:41
and be the best for our own careers
キャリアにも最善を尽くすことが
03:43
is also what is best for the world.
世界を良くすることでもあるのです
03:46
So I urge you
ですから皆さんはどうか
03:49
to shut your eyes
目を閉じて 内に眠る
03:52
and discover the great ideas
素晴らしいアイディアを見つけ
03:54
that lie inside us,
エンジンを切って
03:56
to shut your engines and discover the power of sleep.
睡眠の力を発見してください
03:58
Thank you.
ありがとうございました
04:01
(Applause)
(拍手)
