Constraints motivation

2012-09-18

If a task has constraints - it's pain. You could feel being in a straitjacket. Constraints don't let you walk straight from the briefing to the delivery. That's one way of looking at constraints. There's another one.

I don't speak about political constraints like design by committee. I talk about especially ergonomics or user attention constraints, or technological ones, i.e. when it comes to performance.

So as a self motivation, what about this way of looking at them:

If a task has constraints - it's good. Constraints exist in order to challenge us. So we can become better. They let us grow. Constraints let us find out the core of the problem, and solve it. And in the end, the solution will always turn out unique.
