  • toward the future; forward in time: "Look ahead and think about what may happen in the future".
  • ahead of time; in anticipation: "If you pay ahead (or in advance) you receive a discount"; "She likes to plan ahead".
  • to a more advanced or advantageous position: "A young woman sure to get ahead"; "Pushing employees ahead"
  • to a different or a more advanced time (meaning advanced either toward the present or toward the future): "Moved the appointment ahead from Tuesday to Monday"; "Pushed the deadline ahead from Tuesday to Wednesday"
