The 70:30 Rule

the 70 30 rule
The 70/30 rule
  • We have the capacity to learn from mistakes or failure as well as learning from success and what is working
  • The 70/30 rule encourages us to challenge the percentage of time we spend learning from failure
  • We will notice a significant difference in ourselves and others if we spend 70% of our time learning from the detail of what has worked
  • There is increasing evidence which shows that we learn, develop and grow MOST effectively by noticing and naming what is working
  • We are naturally programmed to remember our mistakes which means that our successes are often invisible to us
  • We need to develop the ability to learn from our successes and hone in on the detail of what has worked
  • By understanding the detail of what has worked we can create a savings account of data to draw from and apply in contexts where things have gone wrong
  • The 70/30 rule helps us to hold the assumption that ‘in every situation we find what is working and learn from it’*

Questions of Difference

*Ref: 7 Assumptions of Partnering, Cash in on Conflict, 2006

70 30 as a life choice
70/30 as a life choice!
  • The 70/30 Rule is a quick way to notice and name what is working well and pay attention to the 70% to help the 30%.
  • We are physiologically programmed to notice what is not working so well because we do not need to notice what is working well because it is working well….
  • Not just positive thinking!!!!

Three Blessings – What Went Well and Why?

Seligman undertook research with 500 participants asking them to record three things that went well and why, every day for 15 days? In this study 92% of people reported increased happiness over the 15 day period. (2005)

Martin E.P. Seligman, Ph.D., works on positive psychology, learned helplessness, depression, and on optimism and pessimism. He is currently Zellerbach Family Professor of Psychology and Director of the Positive Psychology Center at the University of Pennsylvania. He is well known in academic and clinical circles and is a best-selling author


Gratitude Attitude

  • Psychologists Robert Emmons and Michael McCullough (2003) studied the impact of asking people to write about gratitude. Three groups were asked to spend a few moments each week writing. One group was asked to write about the things they were grateful for, another group was asked to write about things that annoyed them and the final group was required to write about  events that had happened that week. The gratitude group ended up happier, healthier, more optimistic and even exercised more than the other two groups. Everyone has something to be happy about but often we just stop noticing what that is.
