Somewhat like the childhood game of Musical Chairs, there’s a point in the popularity arc of any cliché when it becomes so tiresome that anyone who continues to use it exposes himself as an insecure poser fabricating fake savvy.

The expression “going forward” — a trendy way to say “from now on” or “henceforth” — reached that point last year, if not the year before that.

Yes, Einstein, we all know which way time flows, and you’re wasting ours. The future tense will invariably be used in the same sentence, making “going forward” redundant.

Wipe out these word-weeds.
