Corporate America loves the phrase "think outside the box". By this they mean "What new thing will make us rich?" But this is not thinking outside the box at all - it's an ages old mentality. But you've said also "step outside the box". This seems to be a new twist, one that has more promise.

My job involves figuring out why the boxes don't work, or how to make them work better, so I'm always thinking outside and around them.

However the best way to realize value in what you do, no matter what it is, is know that, no matter what, you work for yourself. That everything you do and produce is of you, and thus you want to make sure it is the best it can be.

Also, don't allow yourself to become mentally sedentary in your job, and have it be proscribed by boxes telling you what to do, rather than you knowing what to do. And always think big picture. When you do that “thinking outside of it” is a rule rather than an exception.

Wow, Clark that is so PROFOUND!
"the best way to realize value in what you do, no matter what it is, is know that, no matter what, you work for yourself. That everything you do and produce is of you,"

If we all have that mindset going to work will be a pleasure for everybody.

Tell your self how much yoou love and respect your self, especially when you are down in the dumps. I promise you it works,...but if it does not do the job go get yourself a facial or a massage. These are MAGIC BULLET FOR SLOVING ANY & ALL PROBLEMS(smile)
