I spent most of the weekend with the phrase “think outside the box” lodged somewhere in my prefrontal cortex. Then, while looking for inspirational pictures for a presentation, I came across the perfect picture by pomalowana on deviantart
I also saw this infographic on Fast Company, showing the daily routines of famous creative people throughout history. One thing that immediately sprung to mind was that a lot of them incorporated walking into their daily routine to help them think! That, combined with the nicer weather outside made me want to start hiking again. In fact, even thinking about hiking got my mind working again. A change in routine, a change in your location, all of it helps to get your mind out of the pattern it was stuck in. Are you in a box right now?
Did you ever stop to think, and forget to start again? A.A. Milne
