    Default question on an idiom from a newbie

    Hi,

    I'm a newbie too. Just would like to ask what is the meaning of the idiom "to go places"? I understand the idiom but would like to use it accurately and I would like the person I will write it to not to understand me literally.

    Hope someone can help.

    Thanks!

    Default Re: question on an idiom from a newbie

    It means, on one's way to success.

    Ex: Leader Erik Paulsen: Still in the state house, "I think he's going places," though he has no immediate plans to run.

    Ex: He's going places. He definetly is, Vargas has a bright future, and he is already in Italy doing his thing.
