Lately, I’ve been on a reading frenzy. Over the past month, I’ve been reading books about artificial intelligence, quantum computing, startup innovation, business development, holacracy & remote work. The book that I’m finding to be most interesting, however, is about Principles.
In it, the author, Ray Dalio, founder of Bridgewater & Associates, the most successful hedge fund of our time, lays out his Principles about life, work, economics and investment. It’s fascinating to read about his search for truth and how radical openness has brought him closer to realizing it.
He also challenges the reader to list out his Principles. I haven’t quite completed it yet, but I’ve started jotting down some of the overall ideas and lessons that I’ve learned over my 20 year work history. I plan to deeply understand these Principles and then where possible, design algorithms parallel with my thinking to help predict the future.
