Ray Dalio’s book “Principles” is a very good read.

It delivers early on, too. Within the first few pages Dalio offers three important questions that anyone can use to help them make better decisions in their life.

Indeed, if you only remember these questions, you could get a ton of value from this book.

The three questions Ray Dalio asks you to ask yourself are:

  1. What do you want?
  2. What is true?
  3. Considering #2, what are you going to do to accomplish #1?

So simple, but so important.

The questions get to the root of deciding what you want and what you should do about it.
