The Study Long Study Wrong Effect

When I was in college, my friends and I spent a lot of time playing the game of Spades. I wish I could say my partner and I were unstoppable, but that wasn’t the case. We were pretty good, but we had a few buddies that would always seem to mop everyone up. Sometimes when our opponent would take a long time to throw out a card my partner and I would taunt the procrastinator and say, “study long, study wrong.” Meaning if they took too long to make a decision, it could cost them a hand or even the game.

The same is true when making a decision in network marketing. Many times you’ll get people that are interested in your business but when the time comes to “pull the trigger” they have to think about it. No one is immune to the “I have to think about it” response. Study long, study wrong. The longer they think about it, the less likely they will join you in your business. However, this is not always true, there are exceptions, but the majority of the time the person does not join. Or there may be a scenario where the person does join, but by the time they do join, several hundred or several thousand people join before them. A prime example of the study long, study wrong effect. Had that person taken action initially, they could have benefited by having those several hundred or several thousand people in his or her group.

So the next time you’re given the opportunity to join a business be sure that you’re not a victim of the study long, study wrong effect.

  1. Andre’!
    You are so right! Study long, study wrong! We do this all the time. We know it’s the right thing to do, and then talk ourselves right out of it!
    Great advice!

  2. You are right about that. I like to think of the saying, you snooze, you lose. Sometimes thinking too long will cause you to miss out on an opportunity to explode your business. The early bird gets his worm.

    Great post.
