How to use "Rushing" in context?

Rushing is a cognitive process that occurs when people "try to complete an impatient task in less time than is necessary." This often puts them in a hurry and diminishes their ability to complete the task with accuracy, effectiveness, or satisfaction. For example, a person might rush through a work assignment, cut corners in their eating habits, or drive too fast on the freeway. The cost of rushing often manifests itself in decreased productivity, stress, and conflict.

Despite the costs, many people feel compelled to rush. This might be because of social conditioning, a need to feel in control, or the expectations of others.
