Time is of the essence

Every business contract I have ever read made some mention to time being of the essence. I used to think that this was some legal eagles trying to display their prowess with the English language, and that they were stating the obvious.

Now, I understand the almost sublime importance of this simple fact.

While this is an admiral goal, I have to disagree.
