Crushing It

What does crushing it mean?

Doing very well

If you are working on a project and someone says you are "crushing it," that means you are doing very well. This slang term likely originates from baseball, where a batter crushing a pitch can result in a HR (which is very good).

Because English is incredibly confusing, "crushing it" has nothing to do with crushing or crushes. The only time "crushing it" might be used in regard to a ship is if a particular date or your relationship as a whole is going well. Then, someone might say you are "crushing it" while you are dating your crush.
