in the interest of timeIn order to save time; in order to use time more efficiently; so that time can be used more efficiently. The phrase "in the interest of time" is a commonly used expression that suggests that a decision or action is being taken with consideration of saving time or avoiding wasting time. The phrase is often used in situations where time is limited, and there is a need to prioritize tasks or actions to complete them efficiently within the available time frame. For example, if a meeting is running late, a speaker might say, "In the interest of time, let's move on to the next item on the agenda," meaning that they want to move quickly to the next topic to ensure that the meeting stays on track and does not run over time. The phrase can also be used to justify a decision that might otherwise be perceived as hasty or incomplete. For example, if someone makes a quick decision about which restaurant to go to for dinner, they might say, "In the interest of time, let's just go here," to suggest that time constraints are a factor in their decision-making process. Overall, the phrase "in the interest of time" implies a sense of urgency and efficiency, suggesting that time is a valuable resource that needs to be managed carefully to ensure that tasks are completed effectively and efficiently.Rate it:
