Positive Constraints

Positive constraints are restrictions you choose to place on your behaviour – often with unpredictable and glorious consequences.

For example: Choosing never to use aeroplanes means I have travelled through vast swathes of Britain, France and Tunisia by hitch-hiking, cycling or on my own two feet. In so doing, I have learnt more of the world – and myself – than I ever could have dreamt by aeroplane.

I am currently working on my magnum opus, a book collecting all my experiments in positive constraints, from No Borders and No Money, to No Mobile Phones and No Walking.
