This may be more of a stylistic question than anything else, but I'm hoping for some general rules about using the word 'to' in a sentence and when it might be used too many times.
For example, I'm not sure there's anything wrong with the following sentence from a grammar / structure standpoint:
We are pleased to update you with our progress and to propose a new idea to speed up our product launch into the market to generate revenue.
I find this sentence irritating but I'm not sure exactly why outside of just "wordiness" - but that's normally a good marker (for me) that there's a mistake.
So my question is three part:
- Is the above sentence grammatically sound but just in need of word-crafting?
- What is it about the sentence that I'm finding troublesome?
- Are there any rules that one can remember to identify and avoid this mistake, if it is in fact a mistake?
Thanks in advance and best.
