Many times we heard the term “think out of the box“ and we simply assume that it means think creatively and in an innovative manner but there’s a lot more than that to know. As per metaphysics “The Box – It’s Our reality, It’s a virtual consciousness experience in linear time and emotion created by the pattern of sacred geometry. Thinking out of the box means viewing reality patterns locked in time, encoded in our DNA which we experience. When we think outside the box our consciousness moves beyond thinking. ”
Bit hard to understand right?
Okay, Thinking outside the box is a metaphor which simply means to think something in an original and creative way or we can say that, to think something in our own way, different from the regular.
Story behind the term
The term is thought to be derive from management consultants in the 1970s and 1980s challenging their clients to solve the “Nine Dots” puzzle.
The Nine Dot puzzle is much older than the slogan.
The puzzle proposed an intellectual challenge- to connect the dots by drawing four straight continuous lines that pass through each of the nine dots, and never lifting the pencil from the paper. Try to solve it.!
The conundrum is easily resolved, but only by drawing the lines outside the confines of the square area defined by the nine dots themselves. The phrase “Thinking Outside The Box ” is a restatement of the solution strategy. The puzzle only seems difficult because people commonly imagine a boundary around the edge of the dot array.
There are many solutions to the puzzle one of them being –
How to think out of the box?
We all want to stand out and think something which is completely different but how do we do that?
For being able to do that we need to change our perspective of thinking or we can say that we need to see things in a different way.
We can do that simply by following these steps:
- Identify the issue.
- Determine whether a regular or typical solution to the problem exits.
- If it does, you are done. If no, map out everything that went into creating the issue. In this aspect include everything possible.
- Once you start mapping out the issue more completely, start looking for ways to address the situation in one of the more outlying areas that was not considered previously.
- Never dismiss a possible solution on the basis, “it simply cannot be done”. Consider everything. Go through every possibility until you know for a fact it can or cannot be done.
No matter what you think about the box, All we can say is “Think out of the box :-P”.
