Thinking-in-the-box releases me from thinking I need to come up with new stuff. I believe the ideas, and what-it-takes-to-get-it-done is already inside me. Behavioral scientists say we only use a fraction of our abilities. Yes, maybe I need a bit of the stimulus I get by reading books, listening to speakers, seeking counsel, having good conversations, but I want to reconstruct and build on what God’s given me.
I don’t want to open that box up in front of St. Peter and find all the things God had in store for me that I didn’t receive because I spent so much time piling unnecessary stuff on top of it.
Think-in-the-box and let me know if it frees you up just a bit, if your creativity expands.
To that end….have a great day!
