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
words/phrases.

4. When you get five blocks horizontally, vertically, or diagonally,
stand
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.,
Atlanta

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

-- "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

Life isn't about waiting for the storm to pass, It's about learning to dance in the rain!
