Creativity

embrace constraints to uniquely solve a problem

Creating something new is easy, but creating something new and valuable is not.

Competency will make you a living. Creativity will make you rich.

A product manager is usually constrained by limited resources, and needs to find the lowest investment approach to test if they're on the right track. But constraints can be good. They can focus creativity in a way that generates valuable, usable, and practical ideas. Reducing the scope of a problem or task actually frees us to think deeply about it.

Often this involves the ability to connect two seemingly unrelated ideas to solve a problem.
