Ep. 62: How do restrictions and limitations INCREASE our creativity? With Dr. Patricia Stokes

One thing that we have all experienced, like never before, in this global pandemic and the quarantines that come with it, have been restrictions, limitations, and constraints – personally, professionally, and academically. This has led a lot of us to look back longingly at the status quo, and comment that we just want things to go back to normal, back to the way they always were. But what if these restrictions and limitations could actually increase our creativity and innovation? Dr. Stokes, author of “Creativity from Constraints,” discusses how and why to embrace constraints and use them to our advantage.
