Here's how to stay awake at meetings or seminars:
1. Before 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:
* 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
words/phrases spoken by the speaker.
4. When you get five blocks horizontally, vertically, or diagonally,
stand up and shout "BULLSH*T!"
It works for me !

Great one, Wolfpax!! Thanks for the laugh!!
:rotfl: :roll....As one who fails asleep during meetings on a regular basis, I was really looking for some input here:chuckle!!! Instead I got a very good :chuckle!!!
Brownie - I must confess, there once was a physician who would lecture in our CCU classes...the man never wore a watch because he would swear he could tell time by looking at me... if my head was slightly bowing to the front it was just the beginning of the lecture, 15 minutes later my head was leaning on my right shoulder... another 15 minutes it was on my left shoulder and he knew when to stop because my head was tilted all the way back.
I was also noted for falling asleep 15 minutes into taking my Nursing boards (would you believe the preceptors did not have the decency to wake me???...later for them...I passed without their help)
:rotfl: YOU got me again Wolfpax:chuckle There is no one up but me, and I'm :chuckleing out loud!
LMAO! That is too cute! But it can also be used for when you're in class!
