Here's a way to keep from falling asleep in those meetings, people.


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 "Bull Bingo" card by drawing a square (I find that 5" x 5" 
is a good size).  Divide the card into columns and rows - five across 
and five down.  That will give you 25 1" 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
Client Focus(ed)
Game Plan

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

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