Ridiculous Business Jargon You Need To Stop Using

Business jargon. Does anyone like it? Well, some people must do, or it wouldn’t exist. But there are some phrases used in business that make your skin crawl and signposts the users as lightweights. Here are a few of my (least) favourite examples. Low hanging fruit Okay, we all know that this is another way of saying: pick off the easiest options first rather than tackle the hardest, but really it’s not any more difficult to just say that is it? Let’s touch base No, let’s not touch at all, thank you. Think outside the box What box? There wasn’t a box until you mentioned one. If you mean “be creative, oruginal, and try to avoid doingwhat everyone else is already doing” why don’t you just say that? Repeating a tired old phrase like “think outside the box” is a perfect example of what happens when you’re not thinging outside the box. Am I right?

After one third of the assassins were killed, and one of the ships was destroyed, Blackbeard and co. decided to board the other. When they boarded the ship, they were shocked by the number of men who emerged from below deck. Blackbeard found himself surrounded. The captain broke his sword stabbing him.
