Tired Business Cliche List

CNBC‘s Power Lunch asked viewers to email them with the business cliche that is the most annoying to them.

I’m not a joiner, so I didn’t email them.  Thought I’d share them right here instead.  Feel free to comment if I missed any.

1.  “At the end of the day…”

2.  “Outside the Box”

3.  “Best of Breed”

4.  “Stockpicker’s Market”

5.  “The situation is fluid”

6.  “The New Normal”

7.  “Black Swan”

8.  “The New Math”

There are plenty more…the elimination of these 8 would be a good start, though.

    You may consider these additions:

    [1] “Let’s take this offline.” Basically, ban the use of the word ‘offline’ at any meeting.

    [2] “Paradigm shift”

    [3] “…based on any new news…”

    [4] “Brief overview”

    TRB: I agree, how much has to be taken “offline” before it actually becomes a de facto “online” discussion? thx!

    Don’t forget my all time favourite… “I have a quick question?”
