Out-of-box thinking

A lot of people seem to think that out-of-the box thinking is essentially cheating or cutting corners. But think about it, how difficult is it to cheat or cut corners. Hence in all probability that route is either blocked or in some cases so over used that its now an accepted system. Either way, it isn't going to be your way to the top.
From what I seen and learnt before and at ISB, the out-of-the-box route is usually an arduous but ultimately rewarding route and most of the people who came up with those innovative ideas really knew their stuff.
So i guess: 'Out of the box thinking involves boxing around with a lot of ideas for a lot of time to finally come up with that knock-out punch.'
(Since the above quote is an original spark of brilliance, as promised, I will trumpet it!!!!LOL ;-))

I would re-phrase to: 'Out of the box thinking involves boxing around with a lot of ideas for a lot of time with a hope that you come up with that knock-out punch before your opponent does.'

If you are not able to think out of the box, just shrink your box......
