Is working good under pressure a bad thing or a good thing?

I have noticed that I have a gift for working better under pressure. I produce quality work in terms of academics, social interactions and presentations. Unfortunately, it does have the side effects of stress and other worries.

What do you think?
Update: I am aware that I am not the only one with this quality.

I do however drive myself insane because of it..lol
