Make yourself discoverable and everything else will take care of itself

Lately, I’m been on Quora a lot, mostly because I’m intrigued by the questions asked there, but also I enjoy gaining new perspectives in life by reading other people’s stories.

This one is about dating.

What’s the best place to meet single women in Silicon Valley?

While most answers seem standard, there’s one particular answer that stuck out to me.

Go out, it doesn’t matter where. What matters are that you make yourself discoverable and everything else will take care of itself.

Then he goes on explaining how he met his current girlfriend. It wasn’t because he went to a specific gym full of single women but made himself discoverable by just being out all the time.

To break it down, what he’s saying is this: By exposing yourself to the outside world, people will(single or not) notice you. What’s amazing is that those people you ended up meeting may not be single, but they may have friends who are actively looking for

By exposing yourself to the outside world, people will(single or not) notice you. What’s amazing is that those people you ended up meeting may not be single, but they may have friends who are actively looking for a potential partner.

This simple mental shift of being discoverable is not only applicable to dating, but also to a board stroke of situations we face in life.

For example, if you’re trying to land a new gig that is completely out of your league. Would you give up immediately?

For someone who believes in the value of being discoverable would jump into building a side project and share her experience and progress publicly on the internet. And who knows, a head hunter may come across your post and reach out to you for a better gig.

Now go crazy.
