The Brain And The “Box”
As we age, our brains become increasingly more ingrained into familiar patterns and routines.
Our acquired patterns and routines virtually confine us to our thinking to "the box", or more precisely, to a more left-hemisphere dominant style of handling information. But learning to tap into the more creative right hemisphere of the brain can generate new insights, enabling you to think in a unique manner about both the problems and opportunities.

However bad it looks, draw a picture of your challenge and possible ways to solve it. Drawing engages your right brain and can release the hold your logical left brain has on thinking about the issue or "the box" the same way.
Careers and markets change over time, and you’ll need to be able to change in kind to remain relevant.
Thinking outside the box will help you stay adaptable. Your mind won’t be closed off to new ideas or situations, and therefore you’ll be better at navigating the ever-changing landscape of business.
