The Golden Rule and The Platinum Rule

The Golden Rule

"Do unto others what you want others will do to you."

The Rule really concerns realizing that if you don't like something to happen to you, other people probably also would not like it happening to them either. It is being considerate of other peoples' feelings.

But in the area of trying to please people by offering them something of interest or value, the Golden Rule often breaks down. People may not like what you like.

The Platinum Rule®

"Do unto others what they want others will do to them."

The Platinum Rule® accommodates the feelings of others. The focus of relationships shifts from "this is what I want, so I'll give everyone the same thing" to "let me first understand what they want and then I'll give it to them."

Applying the Platinum Rule® is much more valuable and useful to other people. "Do unto others as they would do unto themselves" means you have listened and observed what the other person wants or needs, and you then try to satisfy those needs.
