Somehow it sounds strange to me......Is it right to say: "We are looking to achieve a significant savings on the cost of our TJ HQ"
does that mean the same as "we are looking forward to achieve......."
Please help, thanks!
Yes, I realize that. But it seems to me that it's possible to say:And 'looking to' can't be replaced with 'looking at a possible achievement of' sorry nichec.
Ha! Thanks for the contradiction It's always nice to learn others' opinionsI agree with you, however one would only use "we are looking at the possibility of achieving..." if one was talking about a plan that may or may not work. However "looking to achieve..." Is simply talking about the goal "Our aim is to achieve..." is synonymous with "looking to" but not synonymous with "looking at the possiblility of..." And as this thread is about "looking to" then really we shouldn't be suggesting other possible phrases that won't convey the correct meaning of the original phrase.
Oh, and "we are looking at the possiblility of" does not mean "We are looking forward to" though both sentences are grammatically correct. And,sorry to contradict almost everything you said, I would say the first sentence is the least confident, as if one is anticipating many things going wrong with your plan to achieve the goal.
