Go Ahead...

When you tell someone to go ahead, you are telling them to continue without worrying too much about something or giving it too much thought. You may be telling someone to "feel free" to take the next step.

1. If you see a product that you like online, do you just go ahead and buy it on the spot... or you give any purchase some forethought before handing over your credit card details?

2. When a group of people sit down together to have a meal, and you are not able to eat at that very moment, you could simply tell them, "Please, go ahead and start without me… "

3. If you follow any video tutorial online, and there are step-by-step instructions, you will most likely hear, "Go ahead and… " a number of times, instead of "Next… "

4. If somebody threatens you in any situation, and you know their threats are empty, you can start off by saying, "Go ahead… " to show them that you are not overly worried: 
- I'm going to Facebook and Twitter about this and let everybody know! 
- Go ahead... be my guest.

5. In the Clint Eastwood movie, "Sudden Impact", there is a standoff situation with a hostage, and Harry Callahan says to the gunman one of the most famous movie quotes ever: "Go ahead, make my day." 

6. Here are three simple rules in life:
- If you do not go after what you want, you'll never have it.
- If you do not ask, the answer will always be no.
- If you do not step forward, you will always be in the same place.
... Basically, we need to go ahead and initiate certain things, even if there is no encouragement or validation from anyone else.

7. It's really easy to stay updated with certain blogs… Just go ahead and pop your email address into the subscription box. A site that I highly recommend, which posts daily on a variety of interesting topics is: lifehack.org

8. If you live in an apartment building, you cannot just go ahead and have a barbecue on your balcony. It is prohibited in many buildings, unless you have a special extractor fan or system that deals with the smoke.

9. When you want to consent to something or give permission, you can simply say, "Go ahead."

10. If two people start speaking at the same time… And both pause to let the other speak, one of the people could say, "Go ahead."
