    Default think outside the box

    Hi

    Is it OK to say:


    If you want to come up with good ideas you have to start thinking outside the box.

    I would include a comma between "ideas" and "you".

    It's a bit cliched, but the grammar is OK if you add a comma. A "then" would fit in nicely as well.
