Treasure your time
Dear teachers, myschoolmates,
Good morning!Today our topic is Treasure your time.
Looking back tothose successful people in history and thinking about current outstandingpeople, we can easily find out those who are indifferent to fame and wealth.However, none of them regard time as nothing. They are able to leave troublesalone, as well as show no interest in fame and wealth, but all of them aresparing no effort to make good use of their time. Time flies even though we can’tfeel it.
Just as Su Shionce mentioned in his famous poem The red cliff ode , “ How small and tiny welook in the vast universe; how we admire the endless Yantze River while howshort out life is! ” If you make good use of your time and do somethingmeaningful, you will be able to make a big difference to the history; however,if you don’t treasure your time, you will probably get nowhere and end up asnobody.
As Grade 9students, if we desire to get good grades in the Senior High school EntranceExamination next year, the positive attitude and hard work come first. At thesame time, how to make use of your time really matters. Now, we all have thesame opportunity, but it is those who can make good use of their time will makeit to the top at last.
First , we musthave the sense of the time. Watching the leaves falling from the Chineseparasol, Zhu Xi exclaimed, “ Since it’s easier to study hard and make it as weare young, we must treasure every minute we have.” He devoted himself to makecollections of The four books. And he accomplished it at last. We Grade 9students must know what really matters at present under the heavy burden ofschoolwork. Therefore, we must put every minute on the meaningful things andstop wasting our time on something useless.
Second ,we shouldfind out the right way to learn efficiently. Learning efficiently is based oncorrect methods. We can make use of each short period of our daily life such asreviewing what we just learned when having meals and waiting in line and so on,which are useful ways of making good use of your time. However some people arelikely to say that these common ways are a waste of time. Zeng Guofan wasn’tvery intelligent at an early age, and he could memorize the articles only byreading them over and over again. But it is these common methods that made himsuccessful. Therefore, if you spend your time on something useful, you aremaking good use of your time.
As a famous sayinggoes that, “For businessmen, time is money; for generals, time is victory; forfarmers; time is harvest.” And I think, for students, time is knowledge.
My dear students,as teenagers, we are now in the best period of our whole life. We must hold astrong belief that time is money to greet every following day. And from now on,please make some changes and develop a good habit of making good use of your time.As we are getting old and think back to those old days, I hope we will neverregret not treasuring our time when we were young.
That’s all. Thankyou for your listening!
