I came across this text in “Motivating Yourself – Heroes, Role Models & Rivals” which links to the source at Embrace Constraints (37signals)

Instead of freaking out about these constraints, embrace them. Let them guide you. Constraints drive innovation and force focus. Instead of trying to remove them, use them to your advantage.
