Top 10 Reasons to Avoid Top 10 Lists


(SNN) - Read This List But Avoid All Others:

10) So-called, self-proclaimed experts rarely have more than three good ideas.
9) People who bury simple truths in peppy buzzwords probably don’t have an original thought in their head.
8) At the end of the day when the rubber hits the road in the blogosphere, the convergence of results oriented best practices will put enough wood behind the arrow to double-click the tribal tattoo.
7) My grandfather didn’t worry about  his “core competencies.”
6) There are usually one or two filler items, completely unrelated to the topic at hand.
5) The word “refrigerator” has five syllables. Useful in haiku.
4) As experts run out of deep insights, they toss in thinly veiled attempts to sell stuff.
3) My novel is a thinly veiled satire full of deep insights steeped in history and lightly simmered in a humorous broth. It’s priced to go and I’ll be signing them in the back of the room after my presentation.
2) Fluff, fluff, fluff and more fluff. Rainbows, unicorns, more fluff. Did I mention “refrigerator?” Have I plugged my novel?
1) If it’s too good to be true, it’s probably #1 on the list.
