There are a lot of influences on an event. Each of us have our own set of internal and external forces working on us as well.
My goal is to be able to draw from my headspace or my heartspace.
You know those days when your senses tingle to lead you to your lost keys and there’s no actual logic or reason to your discovery? That’s your heartspace. Your intuition, instinct, and natural internal abilities drive from the heart. You can close your eyes and lead from your heartspace with nothing but an idea and some imagination.
At other times nothing but numbers drive what you do next. You work smart with the tools you have at hand. You follow a procedure and endeavor to produce predictable results. You make a plan based on the likeliest outcome and use a tried and true technique to get there. Some days you don’t want to chase a guess so you follow a trusted formula and lead with your headspace.
Both of these methods are good methods. Finding a blend is even better.
I’m really in The Zone when I can work from both my headspace and heartspace. If I can build a plan based on the research, pay attention to the fails and the changes and then pivot into a new idea or a variation on the primary, I can persevere. Work with your peers and mentors, dig in to your headspace and your heartspace. Make questions and find answers and keep trying – be it forward, backward, or sideways – till you get your conclusive point.
I put together the above image with my free trial of MindJet Mind Manager 2018. I consider this a Venn diagram of the things that live within my own headspace and heartspace.
Find a Zone that works for you and build up your material understanding and experiential inclinations to grow it and support it.
