    今天为大家带来的英文翻译是选自 Ray Dalio 的《Principles》这本书的Introduction。1975年Ray Dalio在自己位于曼哈顿的公寓内创立了布里奇沃特公司(Bridgewater)。他非常富有,在福布斯富豪排行榜上位居第55位,仅去年一年他赚了二三十亿美元。也希望通过在此书Introduction英文段落翻译的过程中,不仅仅是英文知识的提升,更重要的是从这位富豪身上,学习一些他的处事理念。

    以下是今天的英文段落:

    Principles are concepts that can be applied over and over again in similar circumstances as distinct from narrow answers to specific questions. Every game has principles that successful players master to achieve winning results. So does life. Principles are ways of successfully dealing with the laws of nature or the laws of life. Those who understand more of them and understand them well know how to interact with the world more effectively than those who know fewer of them or know them less well. Different principles apply to different aspects of life - e.g., there are "skiing principles" for skiing, "parenting principles" for parenting, "management principles" for managing, “investment principles” for investing, etc - and there are over - arching "life principles" that influence our approaches to all things. And, of course, different people subscribe to different principles that they believe work best.
