Oliver hopes some of the nice ideas he shared in this post can help you win.The article is simple,casual and easy to digest. Oliver talks about things like choosing the right career, partner, managing your time,energy and other things in simple conversational manner.
On finding the right partner, he counsels:
“Attraction is a complex mini-game in itself, but mostly a byproduct of how you’re already playing. If you have excellent state and high skills, you’re far more attractive already. A tired, irritable, unskilled player is not appealing, and probably shouldn’t be looking for a relationship….
80% of finding someone comes down to being your most attractive self, which – like so much in life – just means putting your time in the right places. If you’re exercising, socialising, well nourished and growing in your career, you will radiate attraction automatically. The remaining 20% is simply putting yourself in places where you can meet the right people”.
