“Embracing a limitation could actually drive creativity.”

“Limitations may be the most unlikely of places to harness creativity, but perhaps one of the best ways to get ourselves out of ruts, rethink categories and challenge accepted norms.” — Phil Hansen

(Thanks to Jeff Hicks who shared this with me in the comments of the most recent Comfort the Mind program. My “Shake and Shift” reminded him of this ted talk!)
