If you’re not ahead you’re behind. If you give head that’s something completely different and not at all a suitable topic of discussion for the intended audience of this Web site. However, under the right circumstances, giving head might help you get ahead.
Ahead can also mean in a forward direction, as in, “moving ahead.” Most people want their careers to move ahead unless they don’t want the pressure and increased salary that generally comes with a higher position.
I can understand why they wouldn’t want the increase pressure, but the extra money? Money is nice to have. You heard it here first.
Two paragraphs ago, when I said “higher position” I was referring to one’s place in a business hierarchy, not the sort of position that is not a suitable topic of discussion for the intended audience of this Web site.
Get your mind out of the gutter. There’s not enough room for both of us there.
In addition, ahead can mean into the future. For example, you might talk about the day ahead.
Then again, rather than talking about the day ahead, or reading about it as an example of the use of the “into the future” sense of the word ahead, you might want to get back to work, particularly if you are one of those people who wants to move ahead in his or her career. It’s just a suggestion.
