Article Discussion 34: Speed in Life

[Speed in Life]
busy-officelady.jpg

Speed is the word that marks our time. Everyone is in a hurry to go somewhere, do something, and see someone. The industry is constantly persisting new inventions to speed up production. And the invariable cry of employers to workers is "Make it faster!". The car manufacturer has as its immense pride that the new type of car is faster than the older models. Shoppers push each other all over the country hastily to get something for nothing. People who go to school, shop, or office rushed breath for some unimportant tasks. In a movie, tap your feet or wag their tongues, or click teeth in the gums at a dance, sway and spin madly. It's a hurry up time that we are in. Perhaps people place so much emphasis on time that we always want to get things done in a short period. We can never forget the saying "Time is Gold" which means time is one of the most significant things that we can't buy and it was compared to Gold since we can't afford it. Saving time is saving our life and wasting time is commensurate to wasting our life. As long as we live we would always strive for life how to make the most of it to the fullest.
