This phrase, in the sense of "from now on," is one of the most annoying-sounding I have come across, and I hear it most often in business. Ever since getting into a more managerial position in my job, I've heard this phrase a lot more often in example sentences like:
"Going forward, don't do x thing."
"Going forward, I will be getting a bite to eat every minute."
It's really quite irritating.
Really? I've never heard of it before. I would be annoyed too.
Like Guest, I'm not familiar with that expression.
<It's really quite irritating. >
Could you post a few real examples? I can't find it being used that way anywhere.
I agree. I hate the expression.
I say "henceforth" or "thenceforth" or "from now on".
Is this similar to "moving on?"
My first impression is that it is "moving on" except in a progressive manner.
Maybe, but I'm not sure what is meant by "progressive manner."
It means that things are getting better.
"Moving on up! (Moving on up!) To the east side!"
Or, when made fun of on _That's My Bush!_:
"Moving on down! (Moving on down!) To the west side!"
Or something like that. LOL.
