    Can Stress improve the quality of ones life?

    Not the Chronic stress but normal stress like Job Interview, Deadlines for work projects, examination and such.

    It absolutely can. Stress is a great motivator. The somewhat uncomfortable yet thrilling physiological reaction of stress provides us with energy and motivation to complete our tasks. I always feel better on days that I actually complete my to do list. It gives my life meaning and I'd say it improves my quality of life overall.

    I know so many people who like working "under pressure" and the reason is they are more productive in such environment.

    Being well prepared helps eliminate the kind of stress you speak of.  However, I feel it's better not to stress because it leads to health problems.  Sometimes you have to let go of the small stresses in life to keep your self calm and sane.

    It depends on your attitude towards stress generally, in social psychology, stress can be classified into positive stress (eustress) or negative stress (distress). Simply stress can inspire or crush a person.

    Like wise I know some friends who enjoy working in pressure cooker environments while others like simple routine jobs.

    For me its a balance of both so to each his/her own:)

    I agree with hauntedpillows.  It can be a positive thing in our lives.  Not the kind of stress where we lose our temper constantly and end up having a heart attack.  Its all about attitude and how we channel that stress.  For instance, if we have to give a presentation and we feel nervous and stressful we can cherish those nerves, the heart beating faster, the feeling of breathlessness is just adrenaline.  Use this adrenaline to energize yourself in to giving a better presentation.  Thats just one  example, there are plenty of other ways stress can be good.
