Thinking outside the box means thinking creatively, unconventionally, generously and differently by going out of the way. It is a kind of thing that only humans can do. We always think with some constraints in our mind. It means overtaking obstacles in new and innovative ways. If we think differently to any distinct situation, in the way we have never imagined, we can solve our problems in a rather different trend.
