How Does the Online Idea Party Work?

You have a dream or a wish, and an obstacle to getting there. (If you don’t think you know your wish, work through my kick-starter and read this post. To learn why you must put logic aside to find your dream, read the following.)

The online Idea Party is here to help you – and the other fellow party goers – with your wishes and obstacles.

Voices from Success Teams and Idea Parties:

Having a team to report to and hearing what everybody did each week is very exciting. It’s kept me moving all year. In the past I made some good starts on my own, but found, every time, when the energy ran out, I ran out. Now it doesn’t run out.

I would do a painting a year, a sketch a year. If it was only me I know I would never do it. Having to tell you makes all the difference. It’s crazy why I didn’t do this years ago, it’s so easy all of a sudden.

  1. I am really exited, I started voluntering at my university library and I subscribed to acouple of courses. I used to get very anxious about being in the right major and not knowing what career path to take because I used to think that you could only do one, but I am now going to start everything I’ve always wanted to do (maybe not everything because I know that if I force myself too many things I will want to quit all of them).
    Not going to lie, it is a little difficult to make things, but I am very commited to stop daydreaming and making everything happen.

  2. I have so many ideas and interests that I would like to pursue but fear and lack of money stops me from choosing one .. I start hobbies, do them for a few months and then they dwindle off .. I’m faced with a chance to start a brand new chapter in my life and I don’t want to make a wrong decision .. I currently have a decent paying, stable state job that I hate because it’s boring but it’s safe. I find balance by teaching kickboxing at night but find so much unhappiness in my day job. I want to make a jump but don’t know which direction to go in.

  3. My wish is to be able to follow thru and complete just one of my goals. I have half-written stories, a half-written screenplay…I have half assed taught myself to read in Italian, read Tarot cards, copy edit, bla bla bla. It is really exasperating and I know there must be something behind the obstacle of laziness and procrastination that is preventing me from seeing anything through. Even though I am curious as to why I am this way, I would appreciate any ideas of how I might actually accomplish something. Anything. Thanks.

    • If you have a particular creative or academic project in mind that you’d like to finish, I can highly recommend Rachel Z. Cornell of pronagger.com as a coach. But if your wish is to accomplish SOMETHING, but you cannot commit right now to one particular thing, you really need to find out why. Knowing why will tell you which approach will actually help you. The two most likely explanations can be found in Barbara Sher’s I Could Do Anything If I Only Knew What It Was (Resistance — a message from your childhood about the dangers of finishing, perhaps) and her Refuse to Choose (you’re done/satisfied/not needing any more when you’re where others would count themselves halfway through and it’s fine, as long as you’re not depending on any of these for your income).
