Constraints get a bum rap. We often think about constraints in a negative light but there is a positive side too. Constraints, limitations or restrictions, can aid in creativity and decision-making. Constraints can help us focus on what is important and relevant. Constraints can narrow our options and help us identify and address the real issues, problems, decisions or creative endeavors. Constraints can help us contain our many thoughts, actions, and choices. Embrace the positive side of constraints.
