Perceive beyond the sphere

Ever heard of the saying 'Think outside the box'?
I don't know about you guys, but I get that all the time. Maybe because I'm not thinking outside the box. But wait... What does 'Think outside the box' really means? Does it mean that someone is trying to encourage creative thinking, bizarre ideas and unorthodox methods?

Well then, If someone is always caught saying 'Think outside the box', could it be that someone is encouraging you to think in a different way? At the same time, It doesn't seemed that he/she is giving a good example either. I mean, if that person is trying to encourage creative thinking, why are they still using the same generic popular saying over and over again? That isn't very creative is it?
Don't they ever say something like 'Perceive beyond the sphere' or some saying that will just blow your mind away.

lol, u r thinking outside the box for the quote 'thinking outside the box'!!
i dun invent my own quotes, but i use to twist the meaning of them...
Sometime ago, my mum told me one chinese quote "Early Bird always get the worm", jst to advise me to wake up early. I twisted the sayings with my own version, from the worm's perspective. It sounds like this: "Early worms will be caught by birds". Since i m the lazy worm, why should i get to wake up early? i will end up being caught by bird.
anyway, tis is a nonsense quote ;P
