《principels》

INTRODUCTION(前言)

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.

原则的概念可以在相似的情况下反复运用,区别于对具体问题的狭隘回答。每个游戏都有原则,这些成功的玩家来获得成功。生活也如此,原则是成功处理自然法则和生活法则的方法。那些了解如何与这个世界进行有效沟通的人会了解的更多,不了解的人就会知道的更少。

Different principles apply to different aspects of life e.g., there are “skiiing principles” for skiing, “parenting principles” for parenting, “management principles” for managing, “investment principles” for investing, etc—and there are overarching “life principles” that influence our approaches to all things

不同的原则适用于不同方面的生活。滑雪有“滑雪原则”,为人父母有“为人父母原则”,管理有“管理原则”,投资有“投资原则”等等。而且有一个总的的“生活原则”影响我们处理生活中的所有的事情。

And, of course, different people subscribe to different principles that they believe work best.

当然,不同的人赞同不同的原则,他们相信行动起来会更好。

I am confident that whatever success Bridgewater and I have had has resulted from our operating by certain principles.

我相信,无论桥水的成功还是我个人的成就,都是按照一定原则去经营。

Creating a great culture, finding the right people, managing them to do great things and solving problems creatively and systematically are challenges faced by all organizations.

创造了一个伟大的文化,找到正确的人去管理他们去做大情和解决一些有创造性和具有体系化的问题,是所有组织面对的挑战。

what differentiates them is how they approach these challenges. The principles laid out in the pages that follow convey our unique ways of doing these things, which are the reasons for our unique results.

他们是怎么区别面对挑战。这些原则陈列在书中传递出来根据特殊的方法去做这些事情。那是我们独特结果的原因

Bridgewater’s success has resulted from talented people operating by the principles set out here, and it will continue if these or other talented people continue to operate by them. Like getting fit, virtually anyone can do it if they are willing to do what it takes.

桥水的成功来自于天赋凛然的人按照这里的原则运营,如果这些或者其他天赋凛然的人继续运作下去的话,它就会继续。

Like getting fit, virtually anyone can do it if they are willing to do what it takes.

就像健身一样,事实上每个人都可以做到,只要他们愿意为结果而付出

What is written here is just my understanding of what it takes: my most fundamental life principles, my approach to getting what I want, and my “management principles,” which arebased on those foundations.

我写在这里的是我对它的理解:我生活的最基本原则,我去接近我最想得到的东西,和我的“管理原则”这是建立在这些基础之上的

Taken together, these principles are meant to paint a picture of a process for the systematic pursuit of truth and excellence and for the rewards that accompany this pursuit.

总的来说,这些原则意味着修饰一个过程为了系统的追求真理和卓越以及伴随着这种追求的回报。

I put them in writing for people to consider in order to help Bridgewater and the people I care about most.

我把它们写下来供人们考虑为了帮助桥水和我最关心的一些人

Until recently, I didn’t write out these principles because I felt that it was presumptuous for me to tell others what would work best for them

知道最近,我没有再继续写原则,因为对我来说感觉有点自以为是去告诉其他的人怎么更好的工作

But over time, I saw the people who I cared about most struggling with problems and wanted to help them; I also found that their problems were almost always the result of violating one or more of these principles, and that their problems could be solved by applying these principles.

但是随着时间的推移,我看到那些我在乎的人和困难做斗争我很想去帮助他们;我发现他们的问题结果总是违反了一个或者几个原则,不过他们的问题能够运用这些原则去解决。

So I began writing down the types of problems and the broken principles that caused them. When I began, I didn’t know how many principles I would end up with but, through this process, I discovered that about 200 principles pretty much cover all the problems. I’m sure that I will come up with more as I learn more.

所以我开始写下来问题的类型和导致问题的发生的原则.当我开始写的时候,我不知道我最终会有多少条原则,通过这个过程,我发现大约有200条原则几乎涵盖了所以的问题。我确信,随着我学习的东西越多,我会提出更多的原则。

When I say that these are my principles, I don’t mean that in a possessive or egotistical way. I just mean that they are explanations of what I personally believe. I believe that the people I work with and care about must think for themselves.

当我说这些是我的原则,我并不是说这些是我自私自利或者自以为是的方式,我的意思只是说它解释了什么是我个人认可的原则。我相信那些为自己工作和必须为她们自己思考的人会在意。
