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.

Declutter and Organize My Life (read all 13 entries…)
Time flies

It’s hard to believe that my last entry on this goal was written 5 months ago. I guess I’ve been working on decluttering, but it looks like I haven’t worked on some of the mini goals. I’ll add those back on the list and set some new deadlines. Maybe, it would help if I added them to my 43things list. Well, since my list is full, I should work on decluttering that list as well. :)

I am trying to find small areas that I can “conquer” and try to keep them maintained. Right now I have decided on my nightstand and dresser top. I had 4 months of receipts on my dresser and 7 months of magazines/catalogs on my night stand. I have kept them clear for over a week now. Now there is a table in my workshop that is calling to me.

luckyview has gotten 2 cheers on this entry.


I want to:
