Today’s expression is think outside the box. To think outside the box means to think imaginatively using new ideas instead of traditional or expected ideas. This expression often refers to creative thinking. Think outside the box 를 직역하면 ‘상자 밖을 생각하라’. 즉 ‘창의적인 사고를 하라’. ‘고정관념에서 벗어나라’ 라는 의미입니다. 오늘 표현에서의box는 기존 관념의 ‘틀’, 'outside the box'는 그런 기존의 틀에서 벗어나라는 말이 되겠죠.
