Are You Thinking Outside the Box?

When people ask you if you’re thinking outside of the box, it is really a metaphor that means to they’re telling you to think differently, unconventionally or from a new perspective. Everyone keeps telling you to do so BUT nobody actually tells you HOW. And today, that’s exactly what I’m going to share with you today …

“Think outside the box” is a phrase in today’s business world that’s be used and abused and in reality, should just be put to rest for good! What we should all be asking ourselves is, why does this box even exist in the first place?

This common phrase isn’t really clear in telling us what to do and more often than not, it’s said when we (or with our team) feel completely stuck in thinking about the practical sides of the project or problem at hand. The person telling the team to “think outside the box” is really just trying to get everyone to stop thinking about the practical boundaries and heighten their creativity. So, by minimizing the number of boundaries, this allows forward thinking and a clear path to making better decisions. By reducing choice, we will have given ourselves (and our team members) a clear realm within which to start brainstorming, rather than the harsh intimidation of a completely vast and blank canvas. It’s time to stop staring at that blank canvas and innovate!

Crystal is an artist, a writer, an organizer, a dreamer, a doer, and down-right proud of it NERD!.

Struck with a love for #AllThings creative at a very young age, Crystal dreamed of a life fueled by her passion for creating and bringing the stories and images in her mind into reality.

As she worked toward her dreams, she earned a diploma as a Computer Applications Specialist then another in Graphic Design and from there began to develop her extensive background in multimedia and the arts. She began her worked in the magazine industry as a layout designer and had a succession of design jobs thereafter. It was her role as a graphic/web designer that gave her the first real glimpse of her future. Soon she began a side job as a freelance designer while keeping one foot in the corporate world. A spark was lit! She turned her freelance gig into a full-time business combining design work with her other passion: creating organization from virtual chaos.

Crystal is one of the most organized individuals on the planet. She is by all means a Zen master of her crafts. She excels at helping others become “untangled” and provides her clients with tools to run their businesses smoothly while she takes care of the details behind the scenes. Thus Virtually Untangled was born. A successful business where her work as a top notch creative in graphic and web — with a twist of virtual assistant — married into one amazing place where clients can come with their virtual messes and become magically untangled. Crystal can always make sense of even the most unorganized chaos and offers a virtual detox of order and peace, so her clients can get busy doing the work that they love the most.
