Thinking outside the box is vital to human life. Yeah, I know I said it was over-rated yesterday. Welcome to my head. I see things from both sides, to a fault usually.
While I maintain that life does have limits, and that you really can’t just do whatever you’d like to do, we desperately need creative, lateral thinking to help us see possibilities we didn’t know were there, to break us out of the soul-killing machine of commercializing and monetizing everything. We need to play, and be inefficient, "unproductive", at least sometimes, so we remember that life isn’t just about being "functional" in society.
There are real limits in life – this keeps us humble. But there are some boxes that we need to get outside of. The one I’m thinking about today is the box of "Everything-Is-A-Product-To-Be-Consumed".
What boxes do you want to think and act outside of?
