Creative Obstacles

“Once we accept our limits, we go beyond them.”

Albert Einstein

“If you always put limit on everything you do, physical or anything else. It will spread into your work and into your life. There are no limits. There are only plateaus, and you must not stay there, you must go beyond them”

Bruce Lee

Creativity is about giving what you’ve got, not what we wish we had or think we need to create.

Sometimes that means working with the materials and equipment you have on hand.

Or sometimes that means being time-bound, finishing an idea in a day or working on a project every spare 10 minutes you can give.

One thing you learn along the way is there’s no one way to make something. There’s your way, my way, their way — we all approach projects differently. That’s why there’s hundreds of unique songs made with C, D and G chords played in different ways.

Sure, there are more effect ways than others, but effectiveness depends on the goals you have in mind. Are you trying to make something with a low budget? Are you trying to work around a physical limitation? Do you feel stuck in where to take your idea? Use it to your advantage.

The key is to not let finding the ‘right’ way to do something limit you from doing it. There are no limitations in life, only creative workarounds and solutions to hard problems.
