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. Hi Matt, first of all I wish you the best in your plan. You can definitely achieve it. I agree with Megan and Richard’s advice – both very sound. I have done woofing which is similar to the work-away project and found the experience life-changing. You mention you are working full time to get by. I suspect that means you are currently living in an urban area? If I’m off the mark I apologize…
    If I’m right, would you consider dipping your toe into an alternative location? Do you have a job that can be done elsewhere (for less money; sadly that’d be part of the deal)? Personally, I have a plan to wind up with a bit of land in France (cheaper). I currently live in a rural area where the work I’m qualified for is hard to come by but I’m willing to stick it out towards getting back to my dream lifestyle (permaculture, independence). I had/have a promising career but it doesn’t satisfy me – I could easily move back to the city tomorrow and pick up work for example.
    There is always another option…but my paltry advice, given that I’ve only your short post to rely on, is to make a small change to get closer to your dream. Be willing to take ‘cuts’ in your expenditure. Let go, if you can (I have a family so I have to be mindful of their needs), of unimportant expenses. You will be amazed at the amount of money we waste on just getting by. Most of it is unessessary and keeps us from what really matters to us, as it keeps us too busy trying to keep up. I’m saying all this from the perspective of someone who is living in way too much poverty and is trying to get out of that situation so I can think straight : there is a balance!
    Again, I wish you all the best. You are not shooting for the moon, it is doable and you can get there !

  2. Hello great people!

    Desire: to set up, live in and work in an ever expanding off-grid restorative agroforestry community in Wales.

    Obstacle: no money for land, planning permission difficult to obtain, working full time just to pay rent and buy food.

    Meanwhile, working through the lovely free workbook at wishcraft.com – thankyou!

  3. I like sustainable living. Like to learn Permaculture design, like grow vegetables and fruit, like gardening. I work on organic farm now, my job will end this month. I want find something I can do soon. I live at yellow springs, Ohio.
