Do you agree or disagree with the following statement?
“Haste makes waste!”

“Haste makes waste” is a common phrase which means that if you try to do something in a hurry, you will probably waste time, money and effort. I couldn’t agree more with what this statement expresses.

In our days, the lifestyle and the way we live pushes us to hurry to get to work, to drive, to walk, to eat or to do everything quickly without thinking about the consequences which will arise later. For example, due to the fact that we do things quickly, a lot of waste has been created which destroys the planet. We don’t think about recycling, but we use the things once and we throw away all of them, afterwards. That wrong mentality is responsible for the increase of the amount of waste in landfills and the gradual death of our planet.

Another example is that when we go out to a restaurant or a bank or to the supermarkets, we demand a fast service, but we don’t realize that the result will be some hasty service of bad quality.

Moreover, in our everyday life another example could be the way we drive. We drive very fast and thoughtlessly. So, this way of driving leads to the accidents and destruction of our cars. In addition, we put our life and the lives of other people at risk due to our carelessness and we lose money in order to fix the damage.

In conclusion, I totally agree with the above statement. You have to schedule what you have to do, to put everything into order and not to hurry without important reason. It is better to be safe than sorry!
