If “thinking outside the box” is so wonderful why do we have boxes in the first place? When you think about it most of us were raised in boxes. As kids at home we had to “abided by my rules” as long as we were “under my roof;” schooling was largely a matter of sitting up straight in our boxes; religion made us do the same thing only in better clothes; and our work environments are likely the boxiest places of all. Alright, maybe I wasn’t in the best of moods. But when I saw the picture of the chickens in this egg farm I immediately thought of the boxes in a typical organizational chart; everyone sitting dutifully in their place fulfilling their measurable egg-laying obligations. Knowing that these chickens are almost born and raised in these cages breaks your heart. So is there a lesson to be learned here?
