To create the actual IQ Matrix doesn’t take very long at all. Although it’s like any skill you learn for the first time – it simply takes some time and patience to master and perfect the method before you become proficient.
Initially creating one IQ Matrix took me almost 1 week of full-time development. However, over months of practicing and perfecting the technique, I am now able to complete one IQ Matrix in about 15 hours of solid work. Although creating the mind map is only one step of the process.
I must also research and piece together the information about the topic I am creating into a format that will fit the IQ Matrix design. I use other mind mapping software applications for this purpose. This by itself can take anywhere from 2 to 5 hours. After which the IQ Matrix image needs to be altered and prepared for distribution through the site, and in addition to this a blog post or eBook will need to be written that explains the concepts presented within the map. This process can take an extra 3 to 4 days. For this reason, given my time constraints, it is very difficult to create more than one IQ Matrix.
