A 5 Step Process To Get What You Want


I'm currently reading Principles by Ray Dalio

It is a generous, insightful, and brilliant read. 

On page 169, he offers his 5 Step Process To Get What You Want Out of Life. He promises, "if you can do these five things well, you will almost certainly be successful." It is worth considering.

Here are his steps to be taken in sequence and one at a time: 

  1. Have clear goals. 
  2. Identify and don't tolerate the problems that stand in the way of you achieving those goals. 
  3. Accurately diagnose the problems to get at their root cause.
  4. Design plans that will get you around them. 
  5. Do what's necessary to push these designs through to results. 


Thanks for reading. I'm glad you're here. // jm
