Expand Your Options

Coming Soon

The Expand Your Options IQ Matrix explores how to think through your circumstances more effectively to generate ideas, solve problems, and expand opportunities. Oftentimes, we get caught up acting without taking the time to think through our circumstances. This, of course, comes with a high degree of risk of failure and mistakes. At other times, we get caught up thinking without acting, which, of course, leads to stagnation. The key is to think carefully and thoroughly, then act accordingly. Only in this way will we generate the momentum we need to achieve our goals and objectives.

Who is this map for?

  • Anyone who tends to act before thinking, which, of course, results in mistakes and failure.
  • Anyone who wants to turn their thoughts into practical action for goal achievement.
  • Anyone who wants to understand how to think carefully and thoroughly to help generate ideas to solve problems and capitalize on opportunities.

Bruce Lee

Balance your thoughts with action. If you spend too much time thinking about a thing, you’ll never get it done.

    The Expand Your Options IQ Matrix explores how to think through your circumstances more effectively to generate ideas, solve problems, and expand opportunities. Oftentimes, we get caught up acting without taking the time to think through our circumstances. This, of course, comes with a high degree of risk of failure and mistakes. At other times, we get caught up thinking without acting, which, of course, leads to stagnation. The key is to think carefully and thoroughly, then act accordingly. Only in this way will we generate the momentum we need to achieve our goals and objectives.

    Here is a quick breakdown of each branch of the Expand Your Options IQ Matrix:

    • Focus Intently: The first branch of this map breaks down how to improve your mental focus to maintain high levels of productivity throughout the day. Mental focus is, of course, not only about how you focus or what you focus on, it’s also about where not to focus and what not to focus on.
    • Think Carefully: The second branch of this map explores how to think carefully about your life, problems, and circumstances before taking action. Only once careful thought and consideration have been put into something can you truly understand what’s required to achieve your goal.
    • Think Conceptually: The third branch of this map challenges you to think conceptually. This is all about recognizing patterns in the work you do. These patterns can help you connect various concepts and ideas to solve problems, capitalize on opportunities, and achieve your goals.
    • Generate Ideas: The final branch of this map highlights the mindset required to generate ideas spontaneously and more effectively. When you generate better ideas you solve problems faster, which helps you accelerate your results.

    As you work through this map, you will progressively discover how to think more effectively about your life, work, and circumstances. As a result, you will solve problems faster and capitalize on opportunities for goal achievement.

    This map was inspired by The 100 Day Challenge.
