Thinking outside the box is great. It’s necessary. But there’s such a thing as too far outside the box. In other words, there’s a box, but we have a hard time figuring out where the edges of it are.
For instance: It took outside-the-box thinking to create machines that defy gravity. But gravity still exists. If you jump from an airplane without a parachute you’ll die. That’s one of the edges.
Think outside the box. The artificial box others have put you in. But keep an eye out for the real edges.
