We have an urgency

This is a critical juncture, because we only use the word juncture when it’s really critical to get your attention.

Now that you are listening, we have an urgency.

There’s a time to fan the flames and a time to fight fires, and this is one of those times.

Please pull it together because, separate, we all fall apart.

The clock is ticking, and we can’t make it stop.

It’s up to you to make it happen, like the last time.

Once you’ve set the bar, we can only set it higher.

It’s important we sync up on this issue. I have half past two.

We’re light years ahead, which means all your family and friends back on Earth are dead now.

I’m happy to say too happy am I.

We’ll succeed, or you’ll die trying.

I’m right behind you every step of the way.

We divided the problem in half and got two problems.

What a team! How does that one blind guy follow right behind the other blind guy?

It’s been signed off, checked off, crossed off, taken off, put off, left off, sawed off, laughed off, wrote off, and now finally, pulled off.

We still have options…I saw this once on a MacGyver episode...

It’s time to change direction and hit the ground running.

The sky’s the limit so let’s reach for the stars.

Let’s get crackin’. Where’d we put the whip?

It's a no-brainer, that's why we hired you.

The straight and narrow of it is, we're in dire straits.

In the ideal world, we wouldn’t say ‘in the ideal world’.
