Would I be right in saying:
“A leader must have gusto if people are to follow him and achieve the corporate mission.”Def.: “Corporate means relating to business corporations or to a particular business corporation. (BUSINESS)”Here corporate mission means the mission of the company. The objective of the company you are working for.
Is my explanation correct?
In the following sentences:
“You will carry out your plan more carefully and aim for the best results possible.”
"But most jobs have some elements that are less fun and more difficult to carry out."
In which other contexts can we use "carry out"?
I'm not 100% clear on that and I want to be.
Could I say:
"He carried out his homework."
It sounds really weird and I've never heard it before. What is exactly is specified to carry out. Also, I don't "do" is a correct synonym for carry out.
Could anyone shed some lights on this?
I'm not satisfied about the definitions of "willing to" I've found:
"If someone is willing to do something, they are fairly happy about doing it and will do it if they are asked or required to do it."
I don't think prepared and willing have the same meaning at all.
Look at the following example:
"I'm willing to give you all of my money to get my wife back!"
I believe that willing to here is used correctly. But according to the definition, you should be fairly happy about doing it.
I've heard willing to in plenty of contexts where the person saying it was not happy at all to do it but had to.
I think this is where the difference between prepared and willing lies.
Prepared evokes a grim resolution (no happiness involved)
Willing can also evoke a grim resolution but it could also mean that someone is happy to do something.
I don't understand why the definitions of willing to that I've found all have a some connotation with being happy to do something.
What is it that I don't understand here?
