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.

clean and organize my place to perfection (read all 22 entries…)
what motivates me to clean? 20 videos of malitose79. thanks malitose79.

after painting my bathroom, i pulled everything out, purged the stuff i didn’t need and carefully organized everything underneath the cabinets. yay! done. not doing that for another 5 years, thanks.

the word “purged” comes from watching 20 videos of malitose79 on youtube (she has 200+ videos on organizing/decluttering/cleaning)... and seeing her perfectly organized and “purged” of clutter home.

mentally, telling myself i need to purge my crap sounds like something serious vs “i need to throw stuff away grumble

also, my friend came over the other day, so the stuff i’ve been putting off for weeks got done. vacuumed the living room, bathroom and kitchen. fantasticed the kitchen, including the range hood vent. threw all the papers into a large bag. crazy what one hour of “friend’s coming over, gotta clean asap” can do.

i also got inspired to vinegar away a spot on the carpet that was annoying me.



I want to:
