On Punctuality(论准时)

时间:2007-6-13栏目:考研英语作文

        On Punctuality
       ~ o be or not to be punctual is a habit. We often fail to appreciate the  influence  of habit in our life. Habit is worklng for or against us every minute of the day. It has much to do with our future. So when we are young, we should try to be punctual every time and never be late, for the habit is
much easier to acquire in youth than when we are older.
      Punctuality is an important constituent of good character.A person who is always on time for his appointments shows real consideration for others. A person who is always late shows selfishness and thoughtlessness, and he is not a person that most people want for a friend. A few minutes' delay may not be a serious matter, but it may have bad results. Getting up ten minutes later than usual may upset the plan of the day.Calling on a friend five minutes later than the appointed time may cause him some unexpected trouble. One delay after another makes a man unable to exert himself. It also proves him
to be untrustworthy.
     Since punctuality is a good habit and a nice virtue, we should pay much attention to it and make much effort to cultivate this good habit so that we may have a strong sense of punctuality and do whatever we are supposed to do on time.

论准时
    是否做到准时是一种习惯。我们在日常生活中往往没有意识到习惯的影响。  习惯每时每刻都在起作用,或起积极作用,或起不良作用。  习惯与我们的前途息息相关。所以,我们年轻时应该力求次次准时,从不迟到,因为准时的习惯在年轻时比年老时更容易养成。
    准时是优良品格的一个重要成分。一个总是按时赴约的人真正做到了为别人着想。一个老是迟到的人说明他自私自利,不为别人考虑;大多数人都不愿和这样的人交友。耽搁几分钟也许是一件小事,但它可能引起不良后果。比平时起床晚十分钟可能打乱整天的计划。拜访朋友比约定的时间迟到五分钟会给朋友带来意想不到的麻烦。一次又一次的延误会让一个人无法竭尽全力,这也证明他是不值得信赖的。
    既然准时是个好习惯,又是一种好品德,我们应该十分注重准时,努力养成这种好习惯,以便具有强烈的准时观念,凡是应该做的事,都按时去做。
