Ray Dalio’s new book, “The Changing World Order,” is coming out soon. He made a few chapters available for public viewing. I never liked his writing style but the content was great.
In 2021, I want to feel that “I am being responsible” more often. Reading those few chapters of Dalio’s book gave me new directions in what I am responsible for:
- Read history
- Always try to take the longer term view in how I look at wealth and meaning of my work and contribution.
Nothing too fancy but I feel strongly about the responsibility to fight our human instincts- we react to the short term, we tend to think through the experiences we have, cycles are longer than a life time, and so we must strive to remember that and act with the longer term in mind.
The last point I want to remember is don’t destroy the opposition, help them recover, and let them fight again. This is not as applicable in my life, but an important point to study and share.
