Relax the Constraints

Space and Time

Problems become much easier to solve if you can relax their constraints.

For example, if you want to buy something and can relax when you buy it then you can find it much cheaper. Candy is vastly cheaper the day after halloween than the day before.

Along with time, the other major constraint is space. If you can relax where you do something then many opportunities open up. For example if you have to buy water at an airport it’s going to be more expensive than elsewhere. If it doesn’t matter where you live then there are far more job opportunities.

If you watch a movie on a Tuesday it’s not only cheaper but there are far less people, so it’s a higher quality experience as well as saving dollars.

So, try to avoid the “right here, right now” and relax all the constraints you can.
