Have you ever heard a phrase that was pretty clever? Then some one or some group continues to use the phrase over and over, until you simply can't stand to hear it. That is the birth of a cliché. Cliches are tired and often vastly overused phrases that make sense but are so overused they have zero impact. The latest cliché I have come across is "low hanging fruit". I hear that phrase in just about every book related to business I have picked up in the last three years. These worksheets will feature phrases and sayings that we ask you to either identify or jazz up entirely.
