Ray Dalio is the founder of one of the largest hedge funds in the world today called Bridgewater which has about $160 Billion in assets under management.  He is also a philanthropist and most recently a New York Times best selling author.  His new book Principles is an autobiography of his life, and in this book are also the principles that he created for himself to help him manage his own personal life and his hedge fund.

This post is going to delve into the ideas that I found very valuable in his book, Principles: Life and Work, but first I think it will be helpful to actually define what a principle is.


Principle – fundamental truth or proposition that serves as the foundation for a system of belief or behavior or for a chain of reasoning.
