Learning from Africa: Innovation comes from constraint
Quote from "Innovation in Africa tips
"Innovation (often) comes from constraint (If you’ve got very few resources, you’re forced to be very creative in using and reusing them.)"
I liked this quote best and there is also an actionable thing I could do to start experiencing a hard constraint.
"Try living for a week on $2 a day."
I will give it a try, so expect me to be very cheap this week. ;)
2 USD translates to 1.5 EUR so this will be my goal. The first implication I can think of now is that I will have to go to work by bike as a train ticket is 1.7 EUR. Luckyly the train ticket back to Mannheim is already paid for (as I really can't walk 600km or whatever it is from Bremen). I have to admit that that's a little bit cheating.
Also, I am not sure about the costs of my electricity and water consumption ... well, I will have to think about that. Experiment starting now!
