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.

August Bootcamp 2012: Action and Adventure (read all 20 entries…)
ok, I've got it.

Action plan:
weekly – week one:
It’s all about poverty, survival, money/income and power-empowerment.

Quick and simple, get it done:

flyers in town- already designed, print, copy, distribute – 1 hour tops

yard sign – I just want lettering but I do need help and I do need to purchase the paint.

(revamp playrooms- very simple one day process, just moving a few things around)

interview presentation will be online/website edit (I’ve already got outline and most of the wording for this ready to go, again, really simple) – 2 days tops
prepare notebooks

-continue in craigslist

Adventure plan, free and within my small world:

Use my evenings alone to do something productive and positive..and outside of my comfort zone, normal routine. 4 hours or so…

park hooping session, either with girls or here in the neighborhood (if no ride), a good solid 2 hour session, visit with someone, draw, write, deep clean, declutter (trash)

also, pursue child support

that’s all I can think of for now.


kaleidoscopelady has gotten 4 cheers on this entry.


I want to:
