    Meeting Bingo
    Do you keep falling asleep in meetings and seminars? What about those long
    and boring conference calls? Here's a way to change all of that.

    1. Before (or during) your next meeting, seminar, or conference call,
    prepare yourself by drawing a square. I find that 5"x5" 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:

    * synergy
    * strategic fit
    * core competencies
    * best practice
    * bottom line
    * revisit
    * expeditious
    * 24/7
    * out of the loop
    * benchmark
    * value-added
    * proactive
    * win-win
    * think outside the box
    * fast track
    * result-driven
    * empower (or empowerment)
    * knowledge base
    * at the end of the day
    * touch base
    * mindset
    * customer focus(ed)
    * paradigm
    * game plan
    * leverage

    3. Check off the appropriate block when you hear one of those

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

    Testimonials from satisfied "Bull**** Bingo" players:

    -- "I had been in the meeting for only five minutes when I won."- Adam W.,

    -- "My attention span at meetings has improved dramatically."- David T.,

    -- "What a gas! Meetings will never be the same for me after my first win."-
    Dan J., New York City

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

    -- "The speaker was stunned as eight of us screamed 'BULL****!' for the
    third time in two hours."
    Bruce M., Dallas
