HOW TO STAY AWAKE IN MEETINGS: (OFFERED AS A PUBLIC SERVICE)

May 18, 2007 at 9:52 am 4 comments

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″ 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: 

* synergy

* strategic fit

* core competences

* best practice

* bottom line

* revisit

* expeditious

* to tell you the truth (or “the truth is”)

* 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)

* 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 “BULLSHIT!”

Testimonials from satisfied “Bullshit Bingo” players:

“I had been in the meeting for only five minutes when I won.” – Adam, Atlanta

“My attention span at meetings has improved dramatically.” – David, Florida

“What a gas! Meetings will never be the same for me after my first win.” – Dan, New York City

“The atmosphere was tense in the last process meeting as 14 of us waited for the fifth box.” – Ben, Denver

“The speaker was stunned as eight of us screamed ‘BULLSHIT!’ for the third time in two hours.” – Paul, Cleveland
