"Constraints force creativity"

 small alley

"Constraints force creativity. Run on limited resources and you'll be forced to reckon with constraints earlier and more intensely. And that's a good thing. Constraints drive innovation."

Getting Real: Fund Yourself

I've also found that constraints simplify. Rather than seeing one as a frustration, I've had luck turning around my perspective and treating it as a relief - one more thing that I don't have to consider. You?

That's true. Being constrained really leads us to become more innovative and resourceful. I believed it's a human nature to create things based on what they lack and what they don't have. Constraints must not limit us from what we aim to do instead it should drives us to do more and fulfill it. :)
