Two: I hurry because people need me. I'm the only one who can calm them down, fix their heart aches, listen to them properly, advice them well, and help them understand what they ought to know. If I don't help them, they'll suffer needlessly. I hurry because I think everything hinges on me.
Three: I hurry because I have so much to do to make this project excellent! If I do well in half the time, people are going to notice. They're going to see that I'm someone worth having around, worth liking, worth loving. I hurry so people will think something of me.
Four: Hurry? Hurry! I can't hurry. If I hurry my work is going to look like everyone else's, and my stuff needs to be better than theirs. I'd rather not do it at all than produce something that's just average. I don't hurry in order to be different.
Five: I hurry because if I can just get through this, I can make it to the part of day when no one is asking anything of me and I can be alone. I hurry because I don't have enough to handle all these people's needs right now.
Six: I hurry because something bad is bound to happen if I don't think ahead. If I don't stock the shelves, we'll be without supplies when a disaster strikes. If I don't research my health plan options, I might miss the fine print. Oh, but about rushing to conclusions, I don't have to research that person's character, I already know they're no good.
Seven: I hurry because so long we keep things light and upbeat, everything will be fine. But if I start thinking too hard about what's actually happening around me, I'll be depressed. That's why I've got to keep things moving. Whatever I'm doing right now isn't nearly so exciting as what I could be doing next. I hurry to protect my thoughts.
Eight: I hurry because that's just the way I am. And you can just deal with it! I get the job done and I do it quickly. Other people take too long and get in the way. They'd be much better off if they just let me do it for them. I hurry because I've got the initiative and know-how and I sure as hell aren't going to leave this work to some idiot.
Nine: I'm not really one to hurry. I mean, I guess I might hurry if hurrying is going to keep people happy. After all, I don't want to get in anyone's way. So, yeah, I'd hurry if that was going to keep people off my back.
