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 competencies

* best practice

* bottom line

* revisit

* take that off-line

* 24/7

* out of the loop

* benchmark

* value-added

* pro-active

* win-win

* think outside the box

* fast track

* result-driven

* empower (or empowerment)

* knowledge base

* at the end of the day

* touch base

* mind-set

* client focus(ed)

* paradigm

* game plan

* leverage

and last but not least

*MOVING FORWARD......

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." Paul D., Caloundra

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

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

"The speaker was stunned as eight of us screamed
'BULLSHIT!' for the third time in two hours."
