In Podcast Episodes
Check It Out

The phrase “I Work Better Under Pressure” is just an excuse for procrastination. Studies have shown that people don’t perform better under pressure put on them by the situation.

If you want that feeling of urgency, you have to take control and put the pressure on yourself by raising your standards by accomplishing more in a shorter period of time and having a clear objective, a clear plan and the confidence that you can overcome the high standards you put on yourself.


Show Notes:

[04:20]#1 Studies have shown that people don’t perform under pressure. Clear objective, clear plan and confidence on what you’re doing.
[09:45]#2 If you want to be better at executing, start making plans ahead of time.
[16:00]#3 Create your own pressure by getting more things done in a shorter period of time, rather than letting the situation put the pressure on you.
