Prioritize, Optimize, Maximize and…Err





prioritize cartoon business

Business jargon is full of “ize” words. I was reading a business book one day and I swear I saw at least a dozen “ize” words on every page. Maybe it’s something in the culture that makes us want to verb so many words, but I think it’s gotten a bit out of hand.

In fact, I think it’s high time we recognize, reorganize, and minimize our supersized need to synthesize and rationalize this italicized and oversized… (See what I mean?)

    I don’t see the use of ‘ize’ changing any time soon, but I like the way you highlighted its frequent use.
