Black and white portrait of Ray Dalio: Narrator and Creator of Life Principles

Principles are ways of successfully dealing with reality to get what you want out of life.

Ray Dalio, one of the world’s most successful investors and entrepreneurs, cites principles as his key to success.

Work Principle

When dealing with people outside your culture, ask yourself: how should this relationship work to achieve my goals?

People often ask if the culture of radical truth and transparency extends to all relationships—not just those with your team in the office, but with suppliers, vendors, partners, even people in everyday life. The answer is that in each case, you need to ask yourself whether or not you need people to be a certain way to get the results you’re seeking. For me, I’ve found this approach so effective that I use it in nearly all of my on-going relationships.
