The Following Maps are Included in this Bundle...

  • Mental Toughness

    This IQ Matrix explores how to develop the mental strength and emotional resilience you will need to overcome adversity. Often the level of success you attain is proportional to the amount of adversity you ultimately face. Those who are successfully able to face and overcome the greatest amount of adversity are often the ones who experience the greatest amount of success. Why? Because adversity helps build character and allows us to learn more about ourselves, about others, about circumstances and about the goals we are working towards. This mind map examines what mental toughness is all about. It breaks down the requirements for developing mental toughness. It then goes through the habits, beliefs, behaviors, actions, and mindset of mentally tough people. You can use these guidelines as a checklist to help you develop the mental toughness needed to achieve your goals. With this knowledge on hand, unexpected problems or challenging conditions will no longer phase you. Your warrior mentality will help you get through any adversity you face on the battlefield.

    Handling a Crisis

    This IQ Matrix explores how to go about handling those seemingly insurmountable problems that tend to spin your life out of control. These crisis situations can often come into our lives unexpectedly in the form of accidents, illness, disasters, and personal or business problems. Because they are unexpected, they are often very difficult to deal with and, therefore, do tend to send our lives into a tailspin. However, handling such crisis scenarios doesn’t need to be overwhelming. In fact, effectively dealing with a crisis situation can be quite rewarding and may even present you with a myriad of opportunities that you would not otherwise have access to. The mind map takes you through the steps you need to take to prepare for a potential crisis situation. It walks you through how to handle a crisis situation as it arises.

It highlights the benefits that can be derived from embracing uncertainty. It provides guidelines that can help us to better prepare ourselves for times of uncertainty. It breaks down an action plan that will help you to create more certainty in your life. When you have more certainty you have a greater level of self-confidence and control, which allows you to make more effective decisions. The map also walks you through how to move through periods of your life where you’re experiencing a significant amount of uncertainty. As you work through this map you will begin to feel more comfortable when facing uncertainty. An element of uncertainty will, of course, always exist. That’s not something we can change.

    Alleviating Suffering

    This IQ Matrix explores how to effectively deal with pain, loss, grief, sorrow, loneliness, hardship, and any other form of suffering. Specifically, the mind map will help you shift how you think about your suffering. Instead of viewing yourself as a victim of your suffering, you can choose to use it as a source of power and strength to help you move your life forward in a better way. But the choice is, of course, yours to make. Yes, suffering is an inevitable part of life, but it’s often not what happens to us, but rather how we interpret and deal with our circumstances that makes all the difference. And, that’s essentially the core message of the map. The mind map specifically tries to help you make sense of your suffering. It provides you with valuable insights into the transformational value of suffering. It takes you through a three-step process on how to alleviate your suffering. And concludes by helping you make some perspective shifts that will turn your suffering into an opportunity for change and development. Working through this map will help you make the best of the worst of times when nothing else seems to work.

  • When Tragedy Strikes

    This IQ Matrix will help you to make sense of those difficult moments in your life when adversity gets the better of you. Life presents us with many challenges in the form of setbacks, divorce, illness, poverty, loss of a loved one, debt, injury, accidents, crime, destruction and suffering. No matter which of these events comes across your path, life is never easy. In fact, it can be incredibly difficult to move on when tragedy strikes. However, tragedy is what you make it out to be. You can either allow it to get the better of you or you can make the most of it. This mind map explores how you are not alone in your pain. Many people are struggling just like you.

    Starting Over Again

    This IQ Matrix explores what it takes to begin again and start over after a failure, mistake, rejection or any kind of setback that derails your efforts. It’s particularly helpful when working through periods of change and transition in your life. Starting over is, of course, never easy. To start over means letting go of certain things that could potentially hold you back and opening yourself up to a different set of possibilities and opportunities for growth, development, and change. However, in order to recognize these things, we must be willing to shift how we think about our life and circumstances. Without this shift taking place, it will be difficult to move forward in a new direction and start over again. This mind map defines what it means to start over again. It breaks down the mindset you will need to cultivate. It presents you with a checklist of things to do that will help you stay on track. And it walks you through a six-step process you can use to help you transition from one chapter of your life to another.

I love how the IQ Matrix maps are summarizing wisdom of entire books in such an interesting and easily digestible format. It's amazing how much value you've created. My mind was completely blown. Besides pure astonishment, I really like how it interconnects everything and puts it into one big picture. If you're like me and you know a lot of the content on those mind maps already, you shouldn't underestimate how much they can do for you. The real key about learning is not to have something "heard" once, but instead to remember and apply this wisdom. Adam's IQ maps are predestined to remind you of what you already know and urge you to apply it.

Generally I go through a topic in the members area one map at a time, then read the accompanying smmary. I then set up reminders to review the map at a later date so it goes into long-term memory.  On average I study around three maps per week and love the results and insights I'm getting. It's exciting to think of ongoing knowledge development and insights, and the accompanying growth, as I continue on this personal development adventure. Studying in this way is potentially saving me thousands of hours of reading time and at the same time is a highly effective learning tool.

More Content to be Added Over Time...

Summaries and eBooks for each IQ Matrix are made available over time. They will be added to your downloads page automatically once they have been published. At this time, no further IQ Doodles are planned for production. However, some of the 100s of mind maps that have been created do also include Visual Thinking Templates and instructions on how to use them.

"Great people are just ordinary people with an extraordinary amount of determination."


Each IQ Matrix represents a cluster of thoughts about a single topic. It’s like a neuron network of interconnected thoughts where you meticulously explore the brain of someone who has successfully mastered the topic. You then take those thought clusters and implant them into your own brain as you use the map. Kind of like a software upgrade for your brain.


Each map effectively categorizes the most important and actionable ideas about a topic into conveniently digestible chunks. It uses keywords and questions in a sentence-like structure that’s easy to follow and understand.


Each map uses a combination of keywords, colors and images designed in an organic radial-like structure that naturally helps improve memory while encouraging photographic recall of the information you are exploring.​


Each map provides you with a comprehensive bird’s eye view of the topic. Subsequently, you gain deeper insights as you're better able to recognize how various ideas are interlinked together to form the whole topic.​
