Our Philosophy

Thinking Inside A Bigger Box

The more we experience, learn, collaborate and engage, the better we understand, decide and act.

Thinking Inside The Box

  • A simplified definition for paradigm is a habit of reasoning or a conceptual framework. A simplified analogy is "the box" in the commonly used phrase "thinking outside the box".
  • What is encompassed by the words "inside the box" is analogous with the current, and often unnoticed, assumptions about a situation.
  • Creative thinking acknowledges and rejects the accepted paradigm to come up with new ideas.   

Thinking Outside The Box

  • Thinking outside the box entails a thinking process, which comprehends the implementation of an unusual approach to the logical thinking structure. It's a procedure which aims to escape relational reasoning and thinking. 
  • Thinking outside the box (also thinking out of the box or thinking beyond the box and, especially in Australia, thinking outside the square) is a metaphor that means to think differently, unconventionally, or from a new perspective. This phrase often refers to novel or creative thinking. 
  • The term is thought to derive from management consultants in the 1970s and 1980s challenging their clients to solve the "nine dots" puzzle, whose solution requires some lateral thinking. This phrase can also be found commonly in dance, as encouragement to move creatively, beyond simple, geometric box steps and their basic variations, to literally step outside the box into more complex patterns of expression.
  • The catchphrase, or cliché, has become widely used in business environments, especially by management consultants and executive coaches, and has been referenced in a number of advertising slogans.
  • To think outside the box is to look further and to try not thinking of the obvious things, but to try thinking of the things beyond them. 

Thinking Inside A Bigger Box

"As we know, there are known knowns; there are things we know we know. We also know there are known unknowns; that is to say we know there are some things we do not know. But there are also unknown unknowns - the ones we don't know we don't know." (Donald Rumsfeld)

Let's say this is our "box". 

The "unknown" to us could be "known" to some one else, therefore:

There are known knowns to them; there are things they know they know. They also know there are known unknowns; that is to say they know there are some things they do not know. But there are also unknown unknowns - the ones they don't know they don't know.

Let's say this is their "box". 

One conclusion is that "their box" is bigger than "our box". They have seen more, they know more.

At MOBIN, we believe that it is a matter of asking the right question from the right person at the right time to receive the right answer, meaning simply access to and learn from a bigger "box" and expand our box for 

"Thinking Inside A Bigger Box".
