The Seagull Theory

In 1492, Columbus kept a diary of his voyage. In September, he wrote this:

“That day they navigated, on their westerly course, day and night, 20 leagues, counting a little less. Here those of the caravel Niña reported that they had seen a tern and a boatswain bird, and these birds never go more than 25 leagues from the land.”

In other words, he noticed the birds…and knew he was close to land.

You can use this principle in business and personal life, too. I call it The Seagull Theory.

The Seagull Theory describes how the subtlest of clues can signify you’re on the right track. For example, when someone says something once, you might not notice it. When you hear it again, that’s interesting. When you hear it three times, you lean in and start paying attention.

Listen for seagulls in business. For example, when I went on a book tour and asked readers, “What do you want me to write more about?” the first person said, “How to make more money.” I didn’t even remember the first response. I asked more people. Almost all of them said, “How do I earn more?” I was skeptical. After 15-20 people saying the same thing — or seeing 15-20 seagulls — I realized I had to dig into why I kept hearing this over and over.

I leaned in, listened, and turned that insight into a course, which has now helped thousands of students start side businesses and generated millions of dollars.

Listen for seagulls in your personal life. If you start to listen, you’ll notice people saying certain things about you:

“You’re always so serious”
“You always look so amazing. I don’t know how you pull those outfits together”
“I’m sure you wouldn’t go, but we’re thinking about going skydiving…”
“I know you’re busy, but…”
“Guys like you and me, we…”

Suddenly, you have a secret microscope on people’s impressions of you. ‘Why do they think I’m serious? Do I want to be serious? (What am I doing that’s giving off that vibe?) Wow, people think I’m good at dressing well. Weird…it just comes naturally to me.’

The Seagull Theory can also tell you when you’re not on the right track. If you listen to people describe this site, some of them will say, “Oh yeah, I Will Teach You To Be Rich, that’s the personal finance site, right?”

I haven’t written about personal finance in years. This seagull shows how difficult it is to change positioning in someone’s mind. It’s not their fault — it’s mine for not making it easier to describe IWT. (I write personal development, not personal finance.)

Listen for seagulls in your life. When you hear someone saying something once, twice, three times…lean in and listen.

What’s an example of a seagull you’ve noticed in your business or personal life? Leave a comment below.

P.S. I’m hiring a Product Developer. If you’ve ever wondered how we do research to create new products, I’m hiring one person to let “inside” to help us research and create future IWT products. For details and to apply, click here.

“You should be a therapist.” “Wow, you put exactly what I’m feeling into words.” “You’re such a good storyteller.” “Oh my god, I never thought of it that way!” (I hear this ALL THE TIME.) I get this kind of feedback a couple times a month, at least. I’m not exactly a therapist, more like a life coach, but I resisted the consulting field for years because I didn’t think people would be interested in my approach, which is to use metaphor and symbolism as a means of tackling problems my clients think are unsolvable. Who knew? I figured I… Read more »

Hi Renee,

That is really interesting! I would love to hear more about how you “followed the seagulls” and got started in the consulting field. What kind of consulting do you do? How did you decide what services to offer and how to set up your pricing? How did you get your first few clients?

I am really considering starting to consult on my own, so I’d love advice from someone who is already successful at this!

It is awesome that you took the feedback you heard about yourself over the years and turned your profession into the simple exercise of what you are good at! I have been importing from China for other sourcing companies for years, and realized what I actually liked best about my job was teaching new hires the steps to go through and serving as a educator and mentor to them. The positive feedback I received from managers was also usually around my willingness to teach others and my effectiveness at this. I finally took the hint, you could say, and am… Read more »

Telling stories strikes a chord with most people-and it develops into a bond when you listen to them attentively and start empathizing with them. Taking a cue from Ramit Sethi, and the Seagull Principle, I have started this pro-bono blog for senior citizens (www.seniorsneedcare.blogspot.com)to take their place in society.

Hi Renee,

I really like your theory. The seagulls that I’ve encountered in my life is my family and close friends who always tell me to launch and help SMEs to import with no difficulty and at a low cost MOQ. So, I started making importo.global which helps SMEs that can’t afford huge MOQ (Minimum Quantity Order) in importing products from factories globally. With the site, Small-to-Medium businesses can now band together to purchase a product that they can share with in a minimum cost.

In one week, I had 5-6 people (some of whom I really trust and who know me very well) tell me I should become a business consultant – i.e. just go out and start consulting. I kind of brushed off the first person who told me that, but then I kept hearing it and couldn’t ignore the pattern. So I ran the idea by some other people who know me well and whom I really trust. I was hoping they would tell me they had reservations about this (“you need more experience first” or “you should get more training first”).… Read more »

Hi Lisa! Thanks for your interest in my work! To answer your questions, I am a professional psychic. I’ve been consulting for the last four years, but it has taken me a while to take my own work seriously. Not that there’s a stigma against psychics or anything. My first paying client was a neighbor of mine. She brought me a $20 bill and I was so freaked out by the concept of offering my services for pay that I read her for 4 hours, just to make sure she got her money’s worth. Now my rate is $80/hr.

Maybe it is a cue to what your strengths really are. Sometimes you might not know what your good at, and other people may notice it. I would definitely explore those strengths and learn cool things about yourself to use it to help others!

I think that’s also why having constant communication with others is so important. It can help you grow and become more self aware of your abilities and your role in your relationships.

My Seagull Theory #1: I wrote a book about starting a business without a biz plan. (Start Me Up!

My “Seagull Phrase” is “That’s a really good idea”. When I hear that from a potential client I know they
“get” my value proposition. If they have an active need, they will ask me to help them. No selling required. If they don’t have an active need we have a basis for continued communication until a need arises for them or someone in their circle. Again, no selling required.

I am a music producer and a singer/songwriter and for years ive been told by my clients and other musicians that with my skillset and talent i should start my own record label or production company. Every time i talk i always get the feedback : “If you had a tv show i would watch you everyday!” If you had a podcast i would tune in . Or “its just your vibe and your energy” I will make an effort to attract outlets where my creativity can reach the masses thats looking for what i have to say.

Loved this article! So interesting. I hear a few things over and over. “You are so smart/intelligent”…or a comment about my physical attractiveness. Those are the big ones. I am a psychologist, with a private practice as well as a ‘public’ practice. I tend ot shy away from anything to do with my physical attractiveness because I don’t want people to focus on that. However, possibly I am making a mistake with that. I’ll have to give it more thought.

I fold paper. It’s not origami in any traditional sense, and although this particular path taken by me was, up until about two years ago, totally devoid of any outside influence. I had no idea anyone else was doing it, but of course there are. Anyway, I fold paper, and then photograph, then manipulate the photographs with my computer. They capture the imagination of pretty much everyone I’ve ever shown them to. Comments like “they have an otherworldly quality” – “It looks like/reminds me of/is just like/could be (insert an enourmous variety of things here)” And of course I have… Read more »

One thing I hear a lot about myself is my smile. I always seem to remind people of other people they like. Like oh I thought you might be the cousin or daughter of my friend. Or doesn’t she remind you of our co-worker …. This happens all the time. I’m always touched and flattered by such a warm compliment. I remind you of someone who makes you feel happy. That’s the best.

Thanks Ramit! I love reflecting on this. Seagull Theory, on the right track: 1) “Wow, I could never pull of that top! You look so great!” 2) “You are always so good at listening. I know I can always talk to you about anything.” Similar to “You’re so empathetic, I should be more like that.” 3) “You always know about the coolest stores/deals/websites/health food/insertanythinghere.” I loooove researching the shit out of stuff and in the process end up finding out about cool people/places/things ahead of time.

The seagull I get is always the same, and it’s both positive and negative.

Because I’m involved in so many projects, hobbies, etc. people often say, “You’re so good at everything! I don’t know how you do it all!”

I’ve also gotten this as a negative feedback seagull: “You do so many things. It’s like you’re all over the map — I can’t tell what you’re really into.”

My goal for 2015 is to try to figure out what I’m trying to accomplish and focus in on that one thing.

This seagull story really hit home. I’ve been looking for a way to get out of the restaurant industry for months and right when I settle with starting a leather accessory company I started seeing seagulls. My brother saw the website I made for my leather accessory company and asked, “Who made your website? I need a new one.” Made him a new one. Then his wife asked me for help cause she’s starting a new company. After 30 mins I realized she needed a lot more then a website. After three 3hr conversations I helped her identify her niche,… Read more »

Very cool idea, I never really thought of it in those terms, but the seagull theory has wings. Now that we know to look for the seagulls it becomes a matter of if you’re seeing the seagulls or something entirely different. I guess what I’m getting at is you have to look at the info provided as it is not as you want to hear it which people can do too easily.

“You are so creative.” “I never would have thought of using ____ the way that you do for toys.” “I love all the things you make for your kids” or “I love the things you make for parenting.” I’ve been trying to decide how to narrow the focus of my handmade business, and I guess that should tell me that my children’s toys and diaper bag/parenting items are the envy of my friends… not necessarily my jewelry or fashion items.

I’m jealous that you hear “I love all the things you make for your kids” and the “I love the things you make for parenting”.
This reminds me of a friend that has the same name as you, who is a caring and kind youth teacher that teaches youth kids at my local church. She’s good at organizing things, making crafts, and helping the kids have a great time.
Maybe it’s your good “seagull”! I think those are great characteristics.

My favorite comment I get is, “That was really deep.” Most recently it was at a bar on Saturday.

Rather than push back, I realized I was branding myself incorrectly. I’m currently directing my second animated music video of 2015. At this point, my freelancing business… Read more »

Seagull theory is a good thing, but it can also be extremely misleading if you don’t know how to interpret the “data” you get from it. I run on this a lot on my work. When we identify an issue that we need to further investigate, we always try to validate the user need by using methods like the Javelin board, focus groups, other sources of user data, etc.

People might be asking for a faster horse, but maybe what they need is a car. 😉

I get the comment ‘you looked stoned’ a lot – even though I don’t even drink.

It was a mystery to me – until I saw a video of myself giving a speech.

Very common:
“You always have the most interesting outfits!.” – complimentary from the ladies
“You always have the most interesting outfits.” – commentary from the gentlemen
(so… people know and recognize me in public)

Common, but slightly less-so:
“When you make your cookbook…” – the cookbook is my friends’ idea, not mine. This is typically variations on a theme, always involving teaching or documenting how to make something, as an instruction for others.
“When are you going to have a show? I could just listen to you explain how-tos all day. You’d be the Bob Ross of instructional videos.”

“If you listen to people describe this site, some of them will say, “Oh yeah, I Will Teach You To Be Rich, that’s the personal finance site, right?”

I haven’t written about personal finance in years. ”

The name: ” I Will Teach You To Be Rich”,

might possibly be confusing people,

tricking them into thinking it’s about:

personal [you]
and finance [rich]?

Just a thought.

Maybe change it to

‘I will teach you how to develop as a person’.

Less confusing.
