I want to give her that feedback BUT she’s scary when she’s angry

I know he’s unhappy BUT I really need this done

I want to meet my sales target BUT our competitors are cheaper

 

Or the classic, vanilla simplicity of an infuriating “Yes, BUT…..”

 

BUT means I don’t agree, I’m not listening, that’s not true. It means that’s not my problem, I don’t need to take that into account, I have no responsibility for that.  

You may as well start with No. Or pop your fingers in your ears. Or live under your duvet.

As they say: “everything before the but is b***shit.” 

 

But is a butt from a stubborn old goat. Let it wake you up.

 

Try EVEN IF. Or AND. Or just get off your but and make a choice based on what’s actually important to you.

Here’s an idea: you know how people turn Sh….. into Sugar? If the Buh starts then finish with….INGO!

Develop a but intolerance and go but-free today.
