I can perform under pressure but I choose not to - I'm a professional and understand that there need be no emergencies in Real Estate!  I learned years ago that no one performs at their best under pressure; they simply do what they can, with what they have, at the time.  It is the same as multi-tasking.  It was the buzz word back in the 80s and we now know better.  Don't get me started on "Stress Management" either!!!  We're not to learn to manage it, but to do away with it completely

I work well under pressure but that's because I'm confident in my ability. If someone is flying by the seat of their pants or in over their head, pressure will reveal their lack of preparation.

I get so much more done when I'm under pressure. The last few days have been a perfect example. Just do one thing after another, by order of importance or what I want to achieve. Today, finally, I took a few hours for a family outing after 5 days of jamming up to 14 a day - well, that includes AR time at night.

Pressure? More data needed.

IN real estate, pressure usually means one of two things.

1. a buyer or seller or client has their knickers in a bind. 
Listen and be the adult. When the emotions of others rise, they need a calming influence. Seeing no reaction makes their issue clearly silly.

2. Somebody dropped the ball.
Don't react. Understand the solution, the requirements, communicate and execute. You can fire folks later.

Many operate with counter intentions. The believe themselves super crisis managers and for some unexplainable reason, they are always in crisis.  Don't allow others to influence the higher way  a situation can be handled.

Pressure, what is it? In most cases it is artificial.
