Do you feel like you are stuck in a rut? Missing the chance to be really imaginative? Allowing life's opportunities to pass you by? All too often our brains work by habit: we find ourselves thinking in old familiar ways, applying logic that may have worked adequately for us in the past, which can leave us feeling creatively drained. This book offers a whole repertoire of original styles of thinking that will refresh your life - at home and at work, in your relationships and your leisure time. It comes with an explanation of the science-bit behind how restrictive our thinking can become due to factors we may not even be aware of. We can arm ourselves to recognize these boundaries, and we can begin to step beyond them. The many exciting ideas in "Out of the Box" will inspire you to look at things in fresh ways. We all have the potential to step out of the box and use our brains in more original, more rewarding ways. This book shows you how.
