Simon Says "Moo"
"Simon Says 'Spin around.'"
"Simon Says 'Clap your hands.'"
Well, if you've ever been around a toddler long enough, they lose interest very quickly. Abby found something else to grab her attention, leaving my seven-year-old spinning and clapping. Lauren is a rather focused and very competitive young lady. Hence, she was not about to lose the game under any circumstances. She was so busy spinning and clapping that she didn't notice that Abby had left the room until she was about to collapse from dizziness. (Yeah, I could have stopped her earlier, but then what fun would I have had?)
As a consultant, I deal with a lot of sacred cows. Simon made a company start mooing 5, 10, 20 years ago and nobody came along and told them to stop. I guess companies just have to get dizzy enough before they realize that Simon has left the room. We hope they realize it before they lose consciousness. Before you bring in a consultant to solve your problems, maybe you should simply try saying, "Simon says, 'Stop Mooing.'" The dizzy cows will thank you.
