Limitations Increase Creativity

A constraint is a state of being restricted, limited or confined within prescribed bounds.

Think of all the possible creative ideas as grass in a huge field, and your creativity is a horse that’s running through this field, searching for the best plot of grass. If you don’t set up a constraint, the horse will run wild, being unable to focus on a single plot, because a better plot may always be available. If you set up a fence (constraint), it will help keep your horse within a specific area, it can cover the ground quicker, finding the best plot of grass quickly, and start eating.

Creative Limitations trigger the flow state

Creative Limitations trigger the flow state

‘Flow’ is the psychological state during which we feel and perform our best. Creativity and Productivity has been proven to increase during flow. Flow is achieved through some external triggers that are all activated when we set limitations. These triggers are:

  • Risk : Time pressure is form of risk that is created through time constraints.
  • Clear Goals : Constraints help you set clearer goals.
  • Challenge to Skill Ratio : Resource limitations pose challenges, and force you to apply their existing skills in a better way.

4 easy ways to make better creative work

  • Committing to a schedule or setting a deadline: reducing the time you can spend on topic choosing and devoting more to actual creation.
  • Following a strict process or limiting the number of tools you can use
  • Setting a word, time or some other kind of limit (Eg. This article should be less than 1000 words, or, This painting should only have 3 things in the foreground , etc.)
  • Letting go of perfectionism, embracing rough corners and experimental stuff to help you grow and learn

Don’t look further if you love learning new things. A refreshing concept that provides quick ideas for busy thought leaders.

Best app ever! You heard it right. This app has helped me get back on my quest to get things done while equipping myself with knowledge everyday.

Ashley Anthony

This app is LOADED with RELEVANT, HELPFUL, AND EDUCATIONAL material. It is creatively intellectual, yet minimal enough to not overstimulate and create a learning block. I am exceptionally impressed with this app!

Sean Green

Great interesting short snippets of informative articles. Highly recommended to anyone who loves information and lacks patience.

Ghazala Begum

Even five minutes a day will improve your thinking. I've come across new ideas and learnt to improve existing ways to become more motivated, confident and happier.

Giovanna Scalzone

Brilliant. It feels fresh and encouraging. So many interesting pieces of information that are just enough to absorb and apply. So happy I found this.

Laetitia Berton

I have only been using it for a few days now, but I have found answers to questions I had never consciously formulated, or to problems I face everyday at work or at home. I wish I had found this earlier, highly recommended!

Jamyson Haug

Great for quick bits of information and interesting ideas around whatever topics you are interested in. Visually, it looks great as well.
