I pretty much shudder when I hear "draft a CYA memo, will ya?" I hate the acronym and drafting CYA memos makes me feel like a total sleezeball.

Organic. I want this to be a truly "Organic Process," i.e. make shit up as you go along...

I use that but when referring to something specific such as "organic traffic" (when referring to how people get to your website, etc)

How is that a win-win for you and the client? You'd be better served integrating a team based, holistic approach to client engagement. Remember we need to stay in lockstep with our competitors who are currently acquiring all of the low hanging fruit. Filter your leads into prospects and integrate them into our customer base. We need to make better use of our human capital and go green. Think over what I have said and then we'll touch base at Charlie's Topless Bar.

I saw a book in one of our school libraries that was titled "SYNERGISM". I can't help but laugh every time I'm there and see it with that dull, yellow 2" binding.
