"Time is of the essence" nghĩa là gì?

'Time is of the essence' = căn bản là thời gian -> nghĩa là thời gian là yếu tố cân nhắc chính trong tình huống này (Time is a key consideration in this situation (often because time is limited or a specific deadline must be met)).

Ví dụ
Time is of the essence when diagnosing (chẩn đoán), treating herpes (bệnh mụn giộp).

If you haven't made your reservations yet, time is of the essence if you want to see the total solar eclipse (nhật thực).

If time is of the essence try Zipjet instead of dashing out for a new outfit. This London-based service operates in the same way as Laundrapp, but can get your clean clothes back to you in as little as six hours.

One of the tornados that hit Erie County last week left the fairgrounds with a roughly $3 million clean up, the Buffalo News reports. And time is of the essence because everything has to be done before the fair opens on August 9.

A Chinese mall has introduced “husband storage” facilities for wives to leave their spouse while they shop.

the Global Harbour mall in Shanghai has erected (lắp ghép, dựng đứng thẳng, cương lên) a number of glass pods for wives to leave any disgruntled (cáu kỉnh cằn nhằn) husbands that don’t want to be dragged around the shops.

Inside each individual pod is a chair, monitor, computer and gamepad, and men can sit and play retro 1990s games. Currently, the service is free, but staff told the newspaper that in future months, users will be able to scan a QR code and pay a small sum for the service using their mobile phones.
