Quick Tip #20: Limit your options

One of the hardest parts of maintaining constant creativity for work is always being given free range to produce… whatever. It’s often said “necessity is the mother of invention” and that’s true. A way to induce the necessity that will force invention is to limit a toolset or other significant element of production in your project. Having this limitation will force you to think outside the standard structure for creation and often lead to innovative methods of production.
So, the next time your boss asks you to build the Eiffel Tower ask yourself to build it using only popsicle sticks. It’ll be awesome.
