Do Not Ever Do This : 01

Going Forward
A few years ago, people used to say or write “in future” or “looking ahead” or “from now on.” That was before the ruthless juggernaut that is “going forward” steamrolled all these lesser expressions onto the slagheap of lexical oblivion. Well, guess what… “going forward” became a cliché about four days after some management consultant – name lost in the mists of time – first trotted it out in a sudden enraptured fit of consultantese (kind of like speaking in tongues, but without the crosses or the foaming at the mouth). Going forward, don’t say or write it ever again.
