Three staples are the bare minimum needed when attaching fabric to a couch frame.
At least according to Jack White.
What is the bare minimum for a rock band?
Drums and a guitar.
Hence, why the White Stripes were a two-piece band.
Jack White is a master of working in constraints.
Guitars that are difficult to play. Touring with two bands. Forced 2-week recording deadlines.
All artificial constraints. But, his belief is that true creativity comes from constraints.
Our marketing also benefits from constraints.
A niche audience. Specific acquisition costs. Resources. Conversion rates. Time.
With abundance, constraints force us to focus.
