Life is short. Haste makes waste. What’s your hurry? These three sayings characterize the way I manage my day to day chores. I don’t want to rush through things; I prefer to take my time.
Life is short. You never know what may happen tomorrow so it is important to enjoy today. Of course, some people will say that’s why it is important to cram a lot into a day. But then, how would you possibly have time to enjoy all of those experiences. By doing a few things slowly and doing them well, you can savor the experience. Haste makes waste. We are not machines. We can’t rush through things mechanically. If we do, we might forget something; we might take shortcuts. By taking our time, we can do a chore carefully, completely, and correctly.
What’s your hurry? Where’s the fire? I don’t see any need to rush to the next experience. There’s still a lot to see and learn from in the chores you might think are simple and mindless tasks. Taking care of your baby brother for instance can be very rewarding. You could simply keep him near you while you watch TV and write a letter and talk on the phone. Or you could devote your whole attention to him and observe his reactions to his environment. You can observe carefully, unlike if you are trying to do four things at the same time.
1. These three sayings characterize the way I manage my day to day chores.
本句中，characterize一词用的很好。Character作为名词意思为特点、特征，后面加ize变为动词，意思是“具有...特征”。这种中将名词动词化的表达是文章很生动，类似的词还有specialize(使特殊)，socialize(社会化)。day to day chores意识是日常事务，这个短语可以用在托福写作中的很多地方，很值得收藏。
2. By taking our time, we can do a chore carefully, completely, and correctly.
本句的亮点在于句中并列的三个副词carefully, completely, correctly。“3”在汉语中是一个很重要的，我们说“三人成虎”，一个事情被强调三次时别人基本上就信以为真了。英语中也如此，三个副词的并列从内容上体现了taking time的优点，从语言是是文章很有气势，而且三个词都是以ly作为结尾，读起来朗朗上口，为文章的语言增色不少。
3. What’s your hurry? Where’s the fire? I don’t see any need to rush to the next experience.
4. Haste makes waste.
本句的两点是作者用了一个压了一个尾韵，是句子读起来更有美感，更有气势，为文章锦上添花。在英语文章写作中，可以使用头韵，如新概念四中的“Finding Fossil Man”和“Spare that Spider”
