While fear doesn’t necessarily work well for me, I’ve found pressure to be a great motivator. I remember during my school years that I couldn’t write a paper or complete an assignment for the life of me unless there was that pressure.
Maybe that pressure was really the fear of not completing it and that’s what pushed me on. Whatever it is, find it for yourself!
Funny you say that. I wrote something on it a couple of days back: josuemolina.com/i-love-pressure
Yeah, pressure is my kind of guy. It could be what you said. The fear of failing others and yourself by not delivering or executing in a timely manner.
I’m not too proud of saying this, but some of my most creative work has come when the pressure is there… Could we somehow say pressure releases something special in us?
We have made the mistake to say, “I can’t work under pressure.” That’s a lie. We work perfectly fine under that type of condition. It’s a nasty feeling. But the outcome in my experience has always been great.
