Organized by:
Center for Inquiry-New York City


Format: While reading of the book Principles by Ray Dalio is recommended, it is not required. We will start with a presentation on the chapter on “Be Radically Open-Minded” followed by discussion.

“For me, there is really only one big choice to make in life: Are you willing to fight to find out what’s true? Do you deeply believe that finding out what is true is essential to your well-being? Do you have a genuine need to find out if you or others are doing something wrong that is standing in the way of achieving your goals? If your answer to any of these questions is no, accept that you will never live up to your potential. If, on the other hand, you are up for the challenge of becoming radically open-minded, the first step in doing so is to look at yourself objectively.”

“This is probably the most important chapter because it explains how to get around the two things standing in most people’s way of getting what they want out of life. These barriers (Ego Barrier & Blindspot Barrier) exist because of the way that our brains work, so nearly everyone encounters them.”
