If the constraints went away, you’d be playing a totally different game, because your competitors would see their constraints lifted as well. Constraints are a gift because they bring us something to lean against, and they give us the chance to focus on work we can actually do. Every once in a while, the situation changes and constraints are lifted. In those moments, we need to be hyper-aware of the new possibilities. The rest of the time, instead of cursing the boundaries, we can celebrate them.
