Creativity under the Gun.
Amabile, Teresa M.; Hadley, Constance N.; Kramer, Steven J.
Harvard Business Review, 80 n8 p52-61 Aug 2002
Although many employers think that people are most creative when under time pressure, research indicates that the opposite is true. Data from 177 employees' diaries showed that creative thinking under extreme time pressure is unlikely when people feel on a treadmill or on autopilot; more likely when they feel they are on an expedition or a mission.
