Turning 40 last year felt like a good milestone at which to reflect on life, to gather the accumulated wisdom that people have shared with me and write down the essential principles that I want to live my life by. Having completed Ray Dalio’s book “Principles”, I’ve been determined to write mine down and share them.
Version 1 of my principles for life and work are captured here primarily for my reference, for those that live and work with me, as well as maybe those who are reflecting on their own principles.
As I said earlier, this is version 1 – a starting point to practice, test, iterate and improve upon.
My principles to date been inspired by – Pandurang Shastri Athavale (Dada), Jayshree Talwalkar (Didi), Swami Vivekananda, Steven Covey, Huston Smith, Seth Godin, Dan Pink, Patrick Lencionni, Clay Christensen, Charles Duhigg and most recently Ray Dalio.
