a little more money, a little more time or some more help, then I could get a lot more stuff done.
While that may prove itself true, putting a negative spin on scarcity (something that we all do) can trip a lot of people up.
Try putting a positive spin on scarcity.
Only having a little money should force you to spend it smarter.
Only having a little time should force you to use it better.
Only having a little help should force you to be accountable for what gets done.
If something is scarce, then it's obviously of value. And taking a positive approach to scarcity should force you discover more of that value.
