Blue sky thinking

If you are engaging in a bit of blue sky thinking you aren’t really thinking much about the constraints of everyday life.  Blue sky thinking is open-minded and “out of the box”, it is like brainstorming – lettig ideas flow in an uncensored way, trying to come up with novel ideas and approaches and not constraining oneself to what is “reasonable” or normal.

The phrase it refers to opening ones mind wide – wide like the blue sky – and letting ideas in.  It is a phrase often used in a business context to the point where it has become quite a cliche.  The British Internet Advertising Bureau even voted it the most unpopular phrase in business in the UK an couple of years back – but that is the Brits 🙂
