When I faced difficulty my friend told me to “Think outside of the box” but I didn’t really know what to do. I just came along his house and watched what he was doing. It’s amazing!
Until one day I dropped everything I was doing and said fuck it: I’m gonna do something I’ve never done before like installing Shopify and creating a wordpress plugin or write a very stupid book and try to sell it.
And after that day I learned that I can do almost anything. From creating a software to doing some basic accounting or doing ERP and accountant consultant. All are easy enough one I get my hand dirty and do and do and leave the thinking part for later.
Now things have been much different, and I learned a lot by actions instead of actual learning. I guess think outside the box should be something include action and execution. No thinking, just doing and maybe to stop doing whatever I was doing.
I was so much happy with new results, new knowledge, new friends and eventually created a new foundation where I could deliver a little impact. All outside of the box.
