How do you perform under pressure?

Everybody feels pressure in what they do.

Tom Cruise

There's a lot of pressure putting an album out all over the world and hoping people everywhere will like it.

Taylor Swift

Pressure can ruin your performance and push you down angles that you don't want to go. 

Henry Cavill

The truth is no student does better under pressure.  In fact most crumble. Hundreds of studies conducted around the world demonstrate pressure downgrades your “cognitive success tools,” (attention, memory, judgment, decision-making), disrupts your psychomotor skills, bends your ethics and adds conflict to your relationships.  Furthermore, recent studies reported by the American Psychological Association and Yale University indicate that high school students, graduate students, law students, medical students, are all experiencing alarmingly high rates of mental health issues due to student pressures. Contrary to conventional wisdom, the edge is not rising to the occasion but rather, the edge is not succumbing to the injurious effects of pressure. 

Dr. Hendrie Weisinger

I choke under pressure. I'm a choker. I don't rise to the occasion.

Larry David

You will come to a place
Where the only thing you feel
Are loaded guns in your face
And you'll have to deal with Pressure

Feeling pressure? You're not alone:

Studies show the Pressure-less Student brings home an excellent Report Card:

 
"I’ve recently been on a self-help kick, which has essentially consisted of my adding all the self-help books under the sun to my to-read list. Unfortunately, I’ve only gotten to reading three of the fifty books I added. However, Performing Under Pressure was one of the three, and I daresay it contains the presence of all fifty of those books.
 
Regardless of the task, pressure has the potential to significantly diminish our judgment, decision-making, dexterity, attention, and most importantly, our performance. Even more significant is the fact that nobody performs better under pressure. In Performing Under Pressure, Hendrie Weisinger and J.P. Pawliw-Fry introduce the concept of pressure management and offer both short term and long term solutions to help us overcome the perils of pressure.
 
Anyone ― whether a student, athlete, business professional, or simply an avid reader ― can benefit from reading Performing Under Pressure. The authors’ provide countless scenarios in their tackling of the greatest obstacle to personal success. To be completely honest, this is the first book I’ve read where the authors include the experiences of Olympic athletes, physics students, entrepreneurs, talented musicians, reality show contestants, and mid-level managers, just to name a few. Yet as important as personal experiences are, research from people and neuroscience are equally as crucial. Luckily, Performing Under Pressure does not disappoint in those aspects; the book draws on research from over 12,000 people and “features the latest research from neuroscience,” to quote the book’s synopsis on Goodreads.
 
Most importantly though, the authors’ words are effective. Weisinger and Pawliw-Fry include only the necessary information in their introduction of pressure and pressure management. As for the short term and long term solutions they offer, let’s just say I now have twenty-two solutions to moments of high pressure, as well as a COTE of armor. (The authors introduce this idea of COTE, which stands for confidence, optimism, tenacity, and enthusiasm.) Keep in mind that this information is all jam-packed in 274, not including the appendices.
 
Performing Under Pressure basically saved my life. While other self-help books, aka the other two I read, often take pressure as something immutable, Performing Under Pressure actually offers practical and helpful solutions to what can become a debilitating problem. Seriously, my physics grade is only what it is because of this book. (I went from a 68 on the first test to a 97 on the second, partially thanks to Performing Under Pressure.)
 
Seriously, buy this book. It’s mind-blowing and life-changing."
