While perusing through old LifeHacker, I found a great article, taken from Penelope Trunk’s book Brazen Careerist: The New Rules for Success. The article I want to mention here is on decoding office jargon.
It’s pretty brazen, for sure: pithy, funny, and no holds barred.
I’ll rework some of my favorites here.
“Think outside the box” means quit coming up with boring ideas and show me something creative.
“We are not on the same page” means “get on my page.”
It’s a worthwhile and interesting little piece to check out, and I’m glad I found it. I just wanted to pass it along.
You can find the complete article here.
