Investing Philosophy

These are some of Ray Dalio's life principles:
1. working for what I wanted, not for what others wanted me to do;
2. coming up with the best independent opinions I could muster to move toward my goals;
3. stress-testing my opinions by having the smartest people I could find challenge them so I could find out where I was wrong;
4. being wary about overconfidence, and good at not knowing; and
5. wrestling with reality, experiencing the results of my decisions, and reflecting on what I did to produce them so that I could improve. I believe that by following this approach I moved faster to my goals by learning a lot more than if I hadn't followed it. Read the complete file
