Admittedly, I'm a bit tired of Ray Dalio. I imagine quite a few folks feel the same way. Ray is, by a few measures anyway, the most successful hedge fund manager in history. Certainly, he's set himself apart. He's not identified with the unseemly behavior of his ilk nor does he fit most of the stereotypes associated with his industry. But at some point, he decided being enormously successful and well-regarded in a business where it's almost impossible to be both simultaneously, wasn't enough.
