Talk to creative types and you often hear this: An unlimited budget is the kiss of death. You can do anything, but unlimited choice is paralyzing. You also never have to admit something isn’t working because you can just throw more money at the problem. advertisement advertisement “We think we want wide-open spaces when we’re trying to start something new, but in fact having some constraints, having something to bump against, that gives information, and that can be a tool of creation,” says Whitney Johnson, author of the new book Disrupt Yourself: Putting the Power of Disruptive Innovation to Work.
