Mother Nature Is Indifferent and Human Purpose


I remember reading about an interesting idea back when I got three days off from work 6 years ago thanks to the help of Hurricane Sandy. It was a great feeling to get 3 free days off without using any paid time off or sick days.


It was also a great feeling to have come across Ray Dalio’s 100 and something page paper that he posted on his company’s website — www.Bridgewater.com — about his work, life and management principles that helped guide him to build the largest and arguably the most successful hedge fund ever. And that is what I spent a lot of time doing during those 3 days off. Reading and learning about Ray’s principles.


And if you aren’t familiar with the paper I am referring to, you are probably familiar with his most recent NY Times bestselling book Principles which is based off that 100-page paper.
