Do you work well under pressure?

I have three big things coming up this week that are due for my classes. I didn't realize I needed to have so many things done so early. So, I am of course pretty behind what I need to finish. I've accomplished one thing that is due tomorrow but now I need to write a paper, write up some child observations and come up with 10 child quotes on our lesson plans, all for Wednesday. I know I'm going to freak out and get stressed and what not, but I usually get things done. Sometimes I think I do work better under pressure. So do you work better under pressure or do you crack when the pressure hits?

I dont really work well under pressure, i feel like some one is sitting on my head. I dont enjoy the pressure,I have worked well when i am like free and have my own time , i just make sure everything is in place , but when under pressure i might tend to be some mistakes with out my knowledge. I need to practice working under pressure. I have few tips in case if you get stressed out while working pressure, thought you can visit this blog to get them http://trainyourmind.blogspot.com

I'm usually good under pressure as long as things don't fall apart. If things start going wrong then they tend to go downhill fast. **AT PEACE WITHIN** ~~STAND STRONG IN YOUR BELIEFS~~

I have always worked best under pressure.. I don't know why but I think maybe because I am a procrastinator. So when it comes down to the line I buckle down and get it done... I think I actually need the pressure sometimes.. I all freaked out worrying about it before hand but when the pressure is on it seems my best work comes out of it.. Blessed be, Mari

I have always worked best under pressure. When I was in school, I left my studying until the last minute and yet I was always able to receive top marks. The longer I have to plan for something the more I second guess myself. If I just go on my first instict, it usually works.

most of us do work well or should i say get things done just in the nick of time when we are under pressure but we should not be addicted to that high because the best way to work is just get things done in its early stage. if we get use to this , one way or another we will break down. we use this adrenalin rush if we think we are in trouble and the brain works faster than usual.

I think I work better under pressure too... beacuse when I have free time I usually spend all my time and concentration on other things such as mylot, but when time is running out I leave everything and just focus on my work... Myabe I should work my timetable better...

Yes, I still work well even under pressure but at times I get so stressed out and needed some break like clearing my mind with a juice or chocolate milk then after that I am good.

I actually work better and faster under pressure. Or when I am ticked off as well. Well, I am hoping that you got it all done in time.Have a good day.
