What does think outside the box mean?
Glad you asked...
To think outside the box simply means to find answers that are not necessarily right in the open. Scientists typically have to think outside the box to solve problems that would otherwise be impossible to find. Taco Bell has the motto of "think outside the box," which means to go to Taco Bell instead of going somewhere else and getting a meal in a box.
