Limitations as a source of creativity, in art + life. Great TED talk by artist Phil Hansen:  Embrace the shake.

Once you accept the fact that life is difficult, it’s not really difficult anymore. It’s only when you think it shouldn’t be, that it makes it very hard. We’re here, we’re meant to be challenged by life, and that is part of the how consciousness evolves.
