Nothing like a little bit of urgency in a constricting space to get me locked and loaded. I think a lot of us, if not all are the same way. It's a primitive and powerful instinct that kicks in driving us forward (when necessary) to do what ever it takes in order to get things done. To ignore it can be an emotional double whammy.
First of all this is your natural "GO" drug also known as an adrenaline boost. It's your green light to go full throttle on the gas. So use it. If you don't your chemical physiology will get outta kilter. You'll likely become nervous or anxious and without an outlet to balance yourself out you'll eventually become depressed.
Secondly, you're going to be less productive and this has many layers of ramification. Including failed goals, lost opportunity, and less life quality. I know everyone knows this stuff, just an affirmation.
Peace and roll strong.
