English Idiom of the Day – Think outside the box

Think outside the box

To think imaginatively using new ideas instead of traditional or expected ideas.

Example: You won't come up with good ideas until you think outside the box. Let's think outside the box for a minute and try to find a better solution.

Did you know...?  This idiom comes from the fact that a box, with its rigidity and squareness, symbolises constrained and unimaginative thinking.
