LEARN1: Constraints are underrated! Look for them!

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 picked this tip from Zuckermann because it remembered me the other day when I was building a wooden chair. I found myself without enough nails to complete the chair as it was designed. This lack of resources forced me to re-imagine the chair with less material and nails (resources).

FutureToday is 2020/1/1. It is just like yesterday. The war is still continuing. It has started since 2010. In 2010, that year was a horrible year. Almost every energy ran out.
