How To Get What You Want In Life

That’s a pretty huge claim.

Apparently, according to Ray Dalio, there are simply five steps to help you get what it is you want in life.

In his book, Principles: Life and Work:

If you can do those five things well, you will almost certainly be successful.

Here they are in a nutshell:

1. Have clear goals

2. Identify and don’t tolerate the problems that stand in the way of your achieving those goals

3. Accurately diagnose the problems to get at their root causes

4.Design plans that will get you around them

5. Do what’s necessary to push these designs through to results.

These five steps seem rather simple.

The ability to clearly identify and not tolerate the problems that stand in the way is my greatest struggle.

What’s yours?
