So many to pick from in this amazing book. I’m focused on radical truth and radical transparency. Toughest and most uncomfortable to do, both personally and through work, but also the most freeing and impactful. I’ve committed to weekly progress.      source

It is the best gift I have ever received and will cherish it for life. Ray is a genius beyond description and this book will go down in history as one of the most significant guides to great success and achievement to ever be written.      source
Beautifully written and filled with such wisdom.      source
Ray Dalio’s market acumen is legendary, but it was creating and living by a set of principles that allowed him to reach the top. Everyone with goals and dreams can learn from Ray’s approach.      source

Wow. So dense with wisdom that I wanted to highlight almost every paragraph. Instead, I skipped Part 1, about his background, because in the intro he recommends you skip it. I also skipped Part 3, about work principles, since they were all collaborative group-stuff, and I’m not working with anyone now. So here are my notes just from Part 2, “Life Principles”, which were so good I’ll probably re-read this book again next year. Caveat: it’s mostly so high-level — (“Decide what is true, then decide what to do about it.”) — that they’re more like koans to spark your own thoughts, instead of specific “do this” type advice.      source
I was blown away. It’s both a guide to life, a guide to business, and also I think an insight into [the author] and someone who’s built an amazing business.      source

I'm obsessed with @RayDalio. His book Principles changed my approach to business. In fact, it's the most powerful business book I've ever read. Now he's turned it into a super punchy and impactful animated series. You MUST watch this.      source

Reading Ray Dalio’s book “Principles” while being so interested in Bitcoin was a great experience. I definitely recommend it CT🔥🚀🔥 @APompliano @MarkYusko @maxkeiser      source
The author Ray Dalio open sourced Bridgewater’s methods in Principles and the results were good evidence that collectives can operate at higher levels when they are open and honest about and can see past their cognitive flaws.      source
