Brainstorming can be an important part of meetings. It is a good way to get different opinions and ideas from everyone. Sometimes, our ideas can be very linear in thinking i.e. we might have very obvious or basic ideas. In order to think about other possible options, we should ‘think outside the box’.
Thinking outside the box means that we should think differently to how we normally would. Unconventional ways of thinking or new perspectives on things are some examples of thinking outside the box. By doing this, we can put a new twist on things and it can help an individual or the company be more creative and profitable in the future.
The next time you are in a meeting or you are asked to come up with some ideas for a project, try thinking outside the box. You might be surprised with the outcome.
