THINKING OUTSIDE THE BOX AND RUNNING TOWARDS SHIT STORMS
I always fancy thinking inside my box. There are a lot of things going on inside, part shitty but mostly brilliant and my amusement is pretty outstanding every time things come together twice the way I expected.
Now I know this sounds somewhat fresh and self- seeking and people might miss the point
It is a paradox to the corporate environment I used to be in, and while thinking outside the box is great, I should elect doing the contrary. Why? Please follow me.
Inside my 12-edged box are well explored regions offering something to master a given drawback, and having reliable and predictable results is quite liberating. Call it my comfort zone and it's another paradox to a corporate environment that mandatorily dictates you to go out of your comfort zone. But if you ask me, why would I do that? As a fact, why would anyone want to do that? I would rather be a Ninja inside my box holding onto apparent absolutes than be a Samurai exploring trackless roads and more often than not, run into shit storms.
I would define outside the box as ideas and concepts that falls beyond the grasps of my comprehension though not necessarily my skills. I should also define it as notions I find less appealing to my ever fabulous tastes.
These ideas maybe from delusional wishful thinking but most often, from impacts of people who mastered the art of pseudo involvement and prefers me to do things their way as they believe their box is colored green and ten times bigger than mine.
I can't help but stress out the unsettling feeling of doing things in a way other than my thinking templates and patterns, of exploring different boxes with structures and rules beyond my norm. In fact I won't even have the most vague idea where and how to start, and if I did where will be my place for creative output. Surely I will be running around on a cognitive wild goose chases and hereafter into shit storms and eventually come into a conclusion that things would have had a better than even chance of accomplishment if things were done within the safety of my box where focus is systematic.
As a personal, and I should make it my professional approach, the best results are that of constrained thinking where my mindset is both systematic and structured in regulating how my mind produces ideas. Having less options instead of broadening it makes me tap into the very rich world inside my box and which makes me think more harder and smarter in finding creative solutions.
