Pressure and deadlines are indispensable to get the work doneIt is a common observation that in general, the work starts getting done at a faster pace when there is pressure and deadlines are near. Without pressure, the pace and efficiency of work tend to slow down due to the relaxed approach and lack of seriousness. Sometimes people happen to drag the work towards the deadline and only when the deadline is near they speed up and complete the work. Hence work which could be done well before the deadline gets unnecessarily dragged to the deadline.
Though this may not be true always still it is quite common. Why do people sometimes only do the things faster under pressure and near to deadline? Why can't they do their work sincerely, efficiently and at the same pace irrespective of pressure and deadline? I think because it is human nature that they tend to get relaxed and work slowly when the deadline is not set for the work they are doing as pressure is not there.
We sometimes see that students study the most when their exams are near and they feel the pressure.
In offices also many times employees work more under pressure rather than when relaxed.
This may be the case in our daily life too.
I think this is a drawback and people need to get out of this mindset. Doing the work beforehand without pressure is likely to give a better quality output. On the other hand, working under pressure may compromise quality sometimes and also lead to mistakes.
So why at times people prefer to take tension and work only under pressure?
The truth is that working efficiently and sincerely even without any pressure and deadlines require a good deal of commitment and seriousness towards work, which every individual does not possess.
