Buzzwords, Jargon

Almost every time I open an email I'm dismayed by the lack of understanding many people have about what constitutes good communication.

In particular, I have a high disdain for business buzzwords. For me, expressions such as going forward, circle back and reach out are among the most loathsome in the lexicon.

"Going forward" is a completely unnecessary phrase and can always be scratched from a sentence. The correct term to replace "circle back" is revisit. And the right word for "reach out" is contact.
