Out-of-the-box thinking is a valuable skill that we can practice in order to learn how to break out of our old habitual thinking patterns.
“Creativity involves breaking out of expected patterns in order to look at
things in a different way.
Resourcefulness is a key leadership skill. And is especially relevant when the goals you have set are difficult to achieve.
Getting creative in solving problems is to unlock your creative ability by challenging your own assumptions, so you are receptive to new ideas.
No problem can be solved until it is reduced to some simple form. The changing of a vague difficulty into a specific, concrete form is a very essential element in thinking.” – J. P. Morgan
