I am really glad when I notice people questioning the status quo: it is the very place where they can start managing ''the new'' of them. (Because, yes, from the Sun point of view - well..)
This questioning approach is the core of any true process of transformation - and has to be welcomed.
There are already a lot of standard phrase in business - they appeared with a good intention to support good work, but there is a danger to end by prevent thinking by oneself - to be present as a person, the necessary condition to a good rapport with work.
One of this statement to follow is ''Think outside the box'', and I was happy to read some doubts about its effectiveness nowadays. And it remembered me that I had a text of my own written years ago - in 2010! It is a good one:) And very effective too: in a form or another, I do follow its ''prescriptions'' in my coaching or nestworking activity.

The exploring of thinking is not.
As well as the attention to yourself. And the minimum condition for attention is to be present within yourself. And this is not at everybody’s ease. On the contrary.
