Shane just sent me this. I am still laughing!!
DO YOU FALL ASLEEP DURING MEETINGS OR SEMINARS?
Do you keep falling asleep in meetings and seminars? Here’s a way to
change all that.
1. Before your next meeting, seminar, or conference call, prepare
yourself by drawing a square. I find that 5″x 5″ is a good size.
Divide the card into columns – five across and five down. That will
give you 25 one-inch blocks.
2. Write one of the following words/phrases in each block:
* strategic fit
* core competencies
* best practice
* bottom line
* take that off-line
* out of the loop
* think outside the box
* fast track
* empower (or empowerment)
* knowledge base
* at the end of the day
* touch base
* mind set
* game plan
3. With your square neatly prepared, get ready to play “BULLSHIT BINGO”.
Check off the appropriate block when you hear one of those words/phrases
spoken by the speaker.
4. When you get five blocks horizontally, vertically, or diagonally,
stand up and shout…”BULLSHIT!”
