Do you actually get better when it’s panic time?

Question: “I’ve found during my admin career that when I’m up against a deadline—especially an unexpected one—I become super-efficient and focused, and even my ideas on how to problem-solve are sharper and better. And if something creative is called for, I’m suddenly filled with good notions when the clock is running out. Generally, it takes a little bit of panic to bring out the very best worker in me! Does anyone else have this problem, and has anyone found a way to generate a sense of urgency when there really is none?” – Karen, Legal Assistant
