Book Of The Week:
“Principles” – Ray Dalio
Ray Dalio is the founder and co-chairman of Bridgewater Associates, which, over the last forty years, has become the largest and best performing hedge fund in the world. Ray Dalio, one of the world’s most successful investors and entrepreneurs, shares the unconventional principles that helped him create unique results in life and business—and which any person or organization can adopt to better achieve their goals.
The book is split into two main sections:
- Life Principles – tells the story of Dalio’s career and explains his overarching approach to life using principles that affect everything he does—most importantly, how he pursues meaningful work and meaningful relationships.
- Work Principles – explains the unusual way Dalio ran Bridgewater Associates for over 40 years, and how the firm’s unique approach to working together led to its outstanding results.
Rather than thinking, ‘I’m right.’ the book questions you to ask yourself, ‘How do I know I’m right?’
Principles are ways of successfully dealing with reality to get what you want out of life.
So much value in his words of wisdom and has quickly become my new favourite book: 10/10
