Did you know that Dr Seuss wrote the book “Green Eggs and Ham” on a bet that he couldn’t write a book with 50 words or less?
That’s right, in 1960, the founder of Random House made a $50 bet with Dr. Seuss that he would not be able to write a book using only 50 different words.
Well he accepted the challenge…
Creating “Green Eggs and Ham”…
And that book has sold more than 200 million copies, making it one of the best-selling childrens books in history!
Think that was a fluke?
Dr Seuss found that setting constraints was so powerful he used it with other books as well.
His book ‘The Cat in the Hat’ was limited to around 250 different words from a list of 348 words selected from a first graders vocabulary list.
That book sold millions of copies too.
Dr Seuss is just one example of the power of constraints, showing us that setting limits can often produce better results than “keeping our options open”.
Constraints can force us to think better, work better, and come up with more creative solutions.
So how can we apply this principle to trading?
What impact can it have?
In this episode we discuss a few ideas from Kevin Davey, take a listen.
