The Searching Challenge

  1. If you want to achieve real results, you must be fully dedicated. // Pro tip (this one should be relevant for apartment seekers): passive search is the worst! The best deals fly off the market faster than fresh hot buns.
  2. Be down to earth and aim for ambitious, yet achievable objectives. // Pro tip (and I will use a metaphor from the dating world): hitting the most beautiful girl/guy in the room can be tempting but can also break your heart.
  3. Pre-define deal breakers. // Pro tips for daters: if hamburgers are your favorite food, don’t waste time on a vegetarian.
  4. Aim for the long run. // Pro tip for the apartment seekers: moving into an apartment with the premise that you will move out in a few months (just until you’ll find your dream apartment…) is a waste of your energy.
  5. Trust your gut feelings. You should remember that even if you are not satisfied with the results, you always have the option to change.
  6. You are less likely to get distracted if you know what you are looking for.
    // Pro tip for the job seekers: ask yourself where do you see yourself in 5–10 years from now. Make sure that your next job leads you to this place and leave aside opportunities that divert you from your goals.
  7. Karma is a b****.
  8. Be loyal to yourself and to those rules, and at the same time leave some space for unexpected luck. Try to be open-minded, spontaneous, so that when real opportunities will knock on your door, you will not be blinded by those rules.
