In my early twenties, I wrote a number of “philosophical fragments.” These thought-fragments were inspired by Marcus Aurelius’ Meditations, Blaise Pascal’s Pensées, and Søren Kierkegaard’s Philosphical Fragments.
Fragment #92 I wrote says this:
Creativity thrives under limits, be they natural or imposed.
Since then, I’ve seen this principle at work time and time again.
So it was no surprise when I came across similar sentiments in The Toilet Paper Entrepreneur by Mike Michalowicz.
We Are Innovative When Resources Are Scarce
“It’s awe-inspiring how careful, thoughtful, and innovative we are when our supplies are scarce. But it’s also confounding how quickly we use and abuse our resources when we perceivably have a lot.”
Lack of Money Forces You to Grow the Right Way
“Money covers up problems and weaknesses. Without money, you’ve got to bring your A-game every day. Lack of funds forces you to optimize everywhere and grow the right way.”
Do you lack resources?
It may be a big blessing in disguise.
