3 Things Make Up For A Successful Life

I think three things make up for a successful life, by and large. 

First, you have to have audacious goals, big dreams. Then when you are headed toward those goals you are going to have problems, you are going to have to deal with reality. You have to deal with those problems in that reality, realistically. Learning from your mistake, writing down those principles.

That is the second part, dealing with reality in a practical way where you learn about mistakes.

And then the third is determination. Because if you are going for your goals and learning from mistakes and you are learning and doing that is determination, you get better all the time. You can't help but get better and if you do that for a long enough amount of time, you are going to far exceed your dreams.

Radical Transparency and Algorithmic Decision-Making

Ray Dalio gave a presentation at the TED Talks in April 2017. Here is a small excerpt of that talk on radical transparency and algorithmic decision-making:

I've been doing this for a long time and I have found it to be wonderful. My objective has been to have meaningful work and meaningful relationships with the people I work with, and I've learned that I couldn't have that unless I had that radical transparency and that algorithmic decision-making. I want to show you why that is, I want to show you how it works. And I warn you that some of the things that I'm going to show you probably are a little bit shocking. - in TED Talks
