Dear 43 Things Users,

10 years after introducing 43 Things to the world, we have decided we have met our last goal: completing the incredible experience that has been 43 Things. Please join us in giving one last cheer to all the folks who have shared their goals with the world, as well as all the people who have worked at The Robot Co-op to build this incredible website. We won a Webby Award, published a book, and brought happiness to a lot of people.

Starting today, 43 Things users can export their goals and entries from the site. Starting August 15, we will make the site “read only”. 43 Things users will still be able to view the site and export their content, but we won’t be taking any new content from users. We hope to leave the site up for folks to see and download their content until the end of the year. Ending on New Year’s Eve takes us full circle.

It has been a long ride (one of our original goals was to "build a company that lasts at least 2 years” - we beat that one!) While we wish the site could live on, it has suffered from a number of challenges - changes in how people use the site, the advertising industry, and how search engines view the site. We wish the outcome was different – but we’ve always been realistic about when our goals are met and when they aren't.

As of today, you will be able to download your goals and entries. See more about that on the FAQ page. Thanks for 10 great years of goal-setting and achieving.

- The Robots.

goddessglendonia I can feel the love all around me...

i want to change it (my life) (read all 11 entries…)
I feel like Im on my way...

Whether or not I want some things that will be happening is kind of out of my control. Like having my mother move in with us as soon as her long term health care kicks in. Not something I would have put on “my list of things to do”, but she really has no where else to go.

There are other things too. I am finally getting my roof done!! It has been leaking for years and has steadily gotten worse. I have the money and WooHoo I am so very excited! They come on the 6th to start. I am feeling soooo responsible about this!

It is hard to maintain a house when you are poor!

I am going to try to check off bunches of my list this summer!! Things that I really want to do but put off!

I’m still not drinking- taking a sabbaticle of sorts. It has been a long while since I have done this. It is my 23rd day. By all means I have not quit indefinitely, but it was a little out of control!!

I think it is also helping somewhat with my motivation and I don’t want anything in my way right now!!

Having a “behavioral coach” coming by once a week is going to help me just as much, if not more than my son and my family- of course what helps mama helps everyone…. cuz, “if mama ain’t happy ain’t no one happy”. RIGHT???? =-)



I want to:
