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.

Working on it...

I have started this process. Anytime I see “Hoarders” or my husband complains I get more serious about it. I also did a fairly good job three years ago when we decided to move 1000 miles away. I still have quite a bit of things, but I realy try to donate on a regular basis, and I’m having a garage sale (things will be priced to sell, and what does not sell will be donated. Nothing will be brought back in the house. I think part of it is that I have many things with sentimental value to me. I guess I will know when I will be able to honestly make that I have done this, and I can’t wait for that day!

I have started, and will do much more this year!

I try to make a box (at least) for donation pick up in my neighborhood for DAV, ARC, etc, so that helps. I will work on a garage sale for this summer, and then I will just really go through everything in our attic. If I haven’t needed or used something in two years, it will go. I will keep all necessary documents and paperwork, but otherwise, it’s got to go!


I want to:
