The phrase think outside the box originated back in 1969 with a management consulting firm. They challenged their clients with a nine dot puzzle. The goal was to connect all nine dots within the box without lifting the pencil from the paper. The purpose was to make management and employees think creatively, to come up with new ideas and solutions to problems in the workplace. The exercise grew in popularity through the 70’s and 80’s and soon became a metaphor that is used today for both work and personal life issues. It means to think differently, unconventionally or from a new perspective. This can apply not only to work but who we date, hobbies we enjoy or careers we pursue. We often live inside the box by using the same set of principles and assumptions. To break this cycle experts recommend studying another work industry or religion.
