Do What You Can Do

Pressure forces us to do what we can really do. It forces us to raise our performance.

Where there is no pressure--internal or external--performance suffers. An athlete pushes her muscles to go further than they are used to to build them up. My GRE score increases rapidly in the weeks leading up to the test. A student only studies the night before an exam.

The real task is putting pressure on before someone puts it on us.
