The Life Transitions IQ Matrix explores how to successfully move through change and transition periods in your life and career. Meaningful change is rarely easy and can be complex at times. This map will help you to move through that change in an optimal way. When you understand how to effectively work through change, it’s easier to deal with the ups and downs and the various setbacks that often accompany change. Change is never a straight line from Point A to B. It’s sometimes quite unpredictable and scary. And understanding how to navigate through that change will help you find the best route moving forward.
Here is a quick breakdown of each branch of the Life Transitions IQ Matrix:
- REASONS: No change ever lasts if there are a lack of reasons for that change. Therefore, your first step toward making any change is to find enough reasons for making that change. The first branch of this mind map walks you through a set of questions that will help you exactly that.
- PLAN: Now that you have found key reasons for making changes to your life, it’s time to plan out how exactly you will go about making these changes. The second branch of this map walks you through several key elements that you need to consider as you go about initiating these changes.
- ACCOUNTABILITY: To make any change stick requires accountability. The third branch of this map walks you through how to build a layer of accountability to the changes you desire to make to your life.
- CHALLENGE: The final step of this process involves sufficiently challenging yourself to follow through with the changes you have planned to make. Without challenge, there is very little progress and development. This final branch walks you through how to push the limits of what’s possible and stretch your comfort zone.
Use this map as a reference guide and reminder tool to help you work through change in an optimal way. You can even use it whenever you’re going through a difficult life transition. It will help you stay focused on the most important elements necessary for successful change.
