Benefits of Constraints

by | Jul 7, 2019 | Change |

One way to reduce the amount of food you eat at meal times is to use smaller plates and bowls. A smaller plate looks fuller with less food so we put less on it.

Can the same principle can work in other areas of our lives?

If you change the setting in your calendar so the default meeting setting is 30 minutes rather 60, will you feel like you have more time created in your day (even though you’ll still have the same 24 hours as the rest of us)?

If you think ‘in’ the box instead of ‘out’ of the box, will you be able to achieve more ideas of how to better utilise the resources you already have?

Sometimes constraints can help us; they can be enablers not barriers. When we understand the problem we are trying to solve clearly, constraints can become a tool in our toolbox. The choice is up to you.
