    Author, A Beautiful Constraint: How to Transform Your Limitations Into Advantages and Why It’s Everyone’s Business

    Dr. Seuss was an early example how a constraint helped him develop a style that became uniquely his own.

    Even if you believe in the potential from constraints, it doesn’t mean you still like them — especially early on.
