Journey Man

I was at a talking shop yesterday-- work-related-- and the word "journey" came up in almost every speech.

It's also spouted by every contestant on the X Factor, The Apprentice, Strictly Come Dancing and I'm a Celebrity. Which begs a lot of questions. One is: how did a word that started in reality-TV culture come to define business practice? And when?

And secondly, and perhaps more importantly: am I the only person left in Britain that isn't on a journey?
