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.

Make a plan and stick to it!

I’ve been making plans every month, but haven’t been sticking to them! I think maybe because I stopped posting them for others to see. So now I’ll go back to posting the basics here so that I might actually accomplish my plans. So some of my goals for this month of July will be to: Get 10 or more service hours; Throw an awesome surprise anniversary dinner for my best friends; Put at least 5 new pieces of jewelry on Etsy; Clean and organize my room so I can have a productive work and living space.


My one month plan for December will be to get 20 or more hours in service, get at least one dog or horse massage, put a new piece of jewelry on my Facebook and Etsy pages once a day until I run out of new pages, finish knitting the scarf I’m working on and that’s all I can think of right now.


Looking back on this plan I feel like I’ve failed quite a bit… I have less than 10 service hours for the month, I hardly went running at all, I did not start designing my jewelry website, I did not read the bible every day and I will not finish NaNoWriMo with the 50K words.
The only success I’ve had is that I did have two dog massages and I have another one planned for the first week in Dec. I was also moderately successful at the art festival. I didn’t plan on it, but I did quit my job and get a new, better one, so I’m very happy about that! Hopefully I will achieve more in December.

My one month plan...

I have a crazy November planned. I’ll be working 40-50 hour weeks at my retail job. Friday the 5th I’m going to my friend’s house for a ‘girl’s night’ which should be awesome. Saturday the 6th I got invited to go to an Art Festival and set up a table to sell me jewelry (for which I am incredible excited!!) Saturday the 19th I have to work at the retail job =(. I just got a phone call to do a dog massage, which will be nice to make some extra $ and I have to call her back and schedule that. The 20th-26th my parents will be out of town, so I expect some late nights hanging out and lots of fun. The 26th I’m going to my friend’s house again for a big football watching party with her and her husband and some other friends. The 24th I have off work, so I’m thinking about maybe driving to Miami beach for a day, not sure yet though. Now that my doctor ok’d it I might start running again too.

Things I definitely want to accomplish this month: over 20 service hours, at least one animal massage, sell a bunch of jewelry at the art festival, run at least every other day, start designing my jewelry website, read the bible every day and complete NaNoWriMo!

I am going to be BUSY!
