Enlarge the Box

“Every problem, every dilemma, every dead end we find ourselves facing in life, only appears unsolvable inside a particular frame or point of view. Enlarge the box, or create another frame around the data, and problems vanish, while new opportunities appear.”

The Art of Possibility, by Benjamin and Rosamund Stone Zander

  1. I needed this today… starting a new business. Eek! So thank you! It’s great advice.

  2. Enlarge the Box? What a great quote. For us entrepreneurs thinking outside the box is what we do. I like the concept of making the box bigger to encompass the new thinking so it is no longer outside the box. I plan on using this at my next staff meeting.

  3. Thanks, a reminder to be flexible in thinking. A great quote indeed. To used as a working tool.
