Daily Prompt: The Heat is On

Do you thrive under pressure or crumble at the thought of it? Does your best stuff surface as the deadline approaches or do you need to iterate, day after day to achieve something you’re proud of? Tell us how you work best. 

Personally I believe I do better when the deadline approaches. I tend to thrive under pressure. The reason is I am more focused on results and being efficient with my time, when time is of the essence. However I put myself in these undesirable positions due to procrastination which is unhealthy with the burden of knowing I could have done better.

I know I do better and feel prouder of my work when I put more time and effort into it. The concept of time and feeling I have all the time in the world to finish something puts me in a position that lacks the care to get a worthy product produced until it is usually too late.

My desired work place is with other people who help keep one another accountable, especially to their goals and dreams. They like to ask questions and look up answers without being told to. They actively try to improve themselves and are willing to sacrifice who they are today for who they will become tomorrow. I also enjoy an active but peaceful environment. Where people can be constructive yet still criticize one another without taking things personally.

***Pressure: n. 1) the continuous physical force exerted on or against an object by something in contact with it. 2. the use of persuasion, influence, or intimidation to make someone do something. v) attempt to persuade or coerce (someone) into doing something.
