In 100 Words: Accentuate the Positive

In 100 Words: Accentuate the Positive

October 19th, 2012 // 10:57 am @ Tanmay Vora // 161 Comments

In 1982, University of Wisconsin researchers studying the human learning pattern videotaped two bowling teams during multiple games. When these tapes were shown to team, they were edited differently. One team was shown the video of all their mistakes and the other team was shown the video of their good performances.

Both teams improved, but the team that focused on positive improved twice as much.

Excessively focusing on errors can lead to feeling of blame, fatigue and resistance. Emphasizing on what works well leads to strong emotions like passion, creativity and enthusiasm.

You get more of what you focus on.
