The Acting on Inspiration IQ Matrix explores how to find the inspiration you need to take positive action towards the attainment of your goals and objectives. While this map is built upon the topic of “inspiration”, it’s important not to get lost in trying to find endless sources inspiration. Sometimes we want to find inspiration so badly that we forget about the fact that inspiration often comes as a result of action. When you take action towards a certain outcome, that is when you are likely to gain the necessary insights you need to make a breakthrough. Therefore, even though this map is about inspiration, it’s important to remember that inspiration is only one part of the puzzle, and probably not the most important part.
Here is a quick break down of each branch of the Acting on Inspiration IQ Matrix:
- Getting Inspired: Are you lacking the inspiration you need to move yourself to take action? Inspiration doesn’t just come out of the blue. Inspiration comes in very specific ways. In fact, you will only find inspiration when you adopt and begin to cultivate a very specific mindset. This mindset and approach to finding inspiration is presented in a very subtle way within this first branch of the map. It’s also important to note that inspiration must encourage action. If you’re inspired but don’t take action, then what’s really the point of going through this process?
- Inspiration Process: The second branch breaks down a five step process you can continuously use to find your inspiration. However, it’s important to note that all of us have very different ways of finding inspiration. As such, it’s important to use this process as a guide with the purpose of adapting it to your own best practices for finding inspiration. Only in this way will you gain the most from this process.
- Finding Inspiration: The final two branches of this map provide you with numerous suggestions that will help move you from inspiration to positive action. Some of these suggestions might seem a little strange and unusual, however don’t let that fool you into thinking that they won’t work. Inspiration often comes in many surprising but specific ways. You must therefore be willing to try something new and different because you just never know what might come about.
Stick with these principles, memorize and incorporate them into your life, and you will progressively find the inspiration you need to take positive action towards the attainment of your goals and objectives. However, it’s of course important to remember that action often breeds inspiration. It’s rarely the other way around.
