It occurs to me that most of us adopt sayings like this without taking the time to figure out (or question) what they really mean. For example, WHAT BOX ARE WE REFERRING TO? I am fully aware that "think outside the box" is a harmless suggestion to think creatively but to paraphrase my original question -- What happens when EVERYONE starts looking outside the box for inspiration???
With this in mind, I would like to offer an unconventional view of what now seems like a rather conventional dose of wisdom, which is this...
When everyone is looking outside the box for inspiration, maybe it's time to look INSIDE!
And, with all due respect to Mr. Chopra (whom I admire greatly) I say it depends on your box :-)
