You always have a budget.
Anyone who says, "There is no budget," isn't a leader and hasn't met the CFO.
Budgets can be a great driver of creativity and a path to finding the winning solution.
Don't look at your budget as a limitation. Look on it as the form in which you create, like a sonnet, a canvas, or the force of gravity (for you sculptors and architects out there).
The trick is to know your budget and understand how it drives your creativity.
What's your budget?
- Your personal time?
- The calendar year or fiscal year?
- Composition of your team?
- The speed of light?
