It’s great to be resourceful in solving problems with what’s available.
But that ability carries a hidden danger…
We have the option of not dealing the with issue permanently.
If you realise you’re improvising the same solution to the same problem time and again, it could mean you’re bumping up against a limit in what you do. Some kind of constraint is making its presence felt.
That constraint could be limiting your achievements because you tend to avoid the circumstances where the issue arises.
It might be time to solve the problem properly.

What are you routinely improvising?
And does that suggest a constraint which might be worth removing?
