    Do you enjoy working under pressure?

    Some people thrive under pressure, while others because of procrastination  are forced to work under self-created pressure.

    Yes! In fact, my husband has a theory that it's a requirement for me to be truly productive. I love giving myself challenges, and if I don't have them I tend to lose interest pretty fast. This past week I was working on a writing contest and deciding I'd had enough of writing and tweaking about 24 hours before the deadline. There was still one article out of 20 I could write, but I didn't think I could do better than the ones that were already there. I also had about a half-dozen articles that could use a little tweaking, but didn't think I'd get that done either. My husband chimed in with, "Well, so you have 24 hours to do a really good article and get your tweaking done. I know you can do it, you don't need a lot of time to get something really good. I look forward to reading them when I get home from work." Sooooo with this artificially-applied pressure, I got it done and probably boosted my chances of winning a few times over, and ended up with articles I liked much better than I expected. On client projects I also tend to dabble a little bit here and there until the last day or two before the deadline, then start churning out the work. Several of these clients prefer delivery on each piece as it's finished, and quite a few of those have commented that they like the last ones best.

    Certainly not. I think, working under stress leads to depression.One should have patience, because patience leads to success. If presessure still bothers, then meditation can help. Doing meditation keeps the human being stress free and gives relief and immense satisfaction to inner soul. As far as the work/job is concerned, one should work whole-heartedly and should enjoy his/her work. If the 'interest' is missing at the work/job, then one should quit and and seek another job where his/her interest fits.

    No, I like to plan ever thing out. Even anticipate possible problems before they arise, and then I make a plan for those possible problems. I hate the feeling of stress. I will work under it if I had to, but as long as I have the choice, I will control everything to ensure that there is no pressure.

    We all work under pressure. The level of pressure is what varies. I prefer pressure, work best under stress, but I have watched others fall apart under the same conditions. I have found that pressure allows me the ability to perform at a higher level.

    Personally, yes.  I get the most done in the least time when I am under pressure.  Having a deadline causes me to focus my thoughts and energies more than normal.  It is frustrating because I know I should be able to work at that level or close to it at all times.

    I tend to be a perfectionist, so I  often work under self-endued pressure.
