The Eliminating Boredom IQ Matrix explores how to bring more excitement into your life. Boredom is an emotional state of being disinterested. It’s an uncomfortable resistance to doing nothing. It’s a painful process you go through when you have nothing better to do with your time that often leads to stress, anxiety, and frustration. Boredom isn’t necessarily a negative or limiting emotion. It only becomes so when you resist the experience of being mindful. If, for instance, you offer no resistance, boredom can actually help you relax by encouraging stillness and periods of contemplation. Letting go of resistance to boredom can often give you the space you need to generate insightful ideas, to make better decisions, and to take more purposeful action. Working through this map will help you eliminate bouts of boredom that often sabotage your happiness and fulfillment in life.
Here is a quick breakdown of each branch of the Eliminating Boredom mind map.

Furthermore, you will discover what typically causes bouts of boredom. Remove these triggers and you are well on your way towards eliminating boredom from your life.
- Completing Boring Tasks: At some stage or another, all of us are required to work through a set of boring tasks. This can be difficult and can very quickly turn into a frustrating experience.

A mind map, of course, does this beautifully because it mirrors the synaptic connections made in your brain as you try to establish new habits of thought and behavior. It brings together key concepts and ideas that help your brain to fully integrate and process this information. The brain, subsequently, rewires itself as it attempts to establish new habits of mind. It’s an ideal tool for creating lasting change and transformation.
Stick with these principles, memorize and incorporate them into your life, and you will progressively live life with more meaning, zest, and purpose.
