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 your Bullshit Bingo card by drawing a square -- I find that 5 x
5 is a good size -- and dividing it into columns -- five across and five
down. That will give you 25 1-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,
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, client focus(ed), ballpark, 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 BULLSHIT!


Testimonials from satisfied Bullshit Bingo players:


* I had been in the meeting for only five minutes when I won. -- Jack
W., Boston


* My attention span at meetings has improved dramatically. -- David D.,
Florida


* What a gas! Meetings will never be the same for me after my first win.
-- Bill R., 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 BULLSHIT! for the
third time in two hours. -- Kathleen L., Atlanta
