Thinking Out of the Box

Have you solved this famous puzzle? You have to connect all the 9 dots using four straight lines without lifting your pen or pencil.

Most of the people are not able to figure it out. You can see the answer here.

The Beauty of this puzzle is, it forces you to "think out of the box". We are used to learn whatever professor teaches us. Or we used to do things the way it is in books or it is in manuals or tutorials.

In real world it does not work that way. You have to work out different strategies to get success and best results. You have to ask different people, refer different sources, apply trial and error method and apply your knowledge to it.

We all are born with the same tools that God gave us. Teachers don't teach something new they just present the facts together in front of us to let us think differently.

Do you think out of the box?
