    Staying awake at meetings

    Practical tip...

    1. Before (or during) your next meeting, seminar, or
    conference call, prepare yourself by drawing a square.
    5"x 5" is a good size. Divide the card into columns,
    five across and five down. That will give you one-inch blocks.

    2. Write one of the following words/phrases in each block:

    * Synergy
    * strategic fit
    * core competencies
    * best practice
    * bottom line
    * revisit
    * take that off-line
    * 24/7
    * out of the loop
    * benchmark
    * value-added
    * pro-active
    * win-win
    * think outside the box
    * fast track
    * result-driven
    * empower (or empowerment)
    * knowledge base
    * touch base
    * mind-set
    * client focus(ed)
    * paradigm
    * game plan
    * leverage

    and last but not least

    * MOVING FORWARD......

    3. Check off the appropriate block when you hear one of those
    20 words/phrases.

    4. When you get five blocks horizontally, vertically, or
    diagonally stand up and shout, "BULLSHIT!"


    Testimonials from satisfied "BullShit Bingo" players:

    "I had been in the meeting for only five minutes when I won.", Paul D.,
    Caloundra

    "My attention span at meetings has improved dramatically.", David D.,
    Rockhampton

    "The atmosphere was tense in the last process meeting as 14 of us waited
    for the fifth box.", Ben G., Sydney

    "The speaker was stunned as eight of us screamed 'BULLSHIT!' for the
    third time in two hours.", Kathleen L., Canberry
