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.

could be worse

The Dr. Phil show had a woman on today who is an “extreme hoarder” – thankfully my house is not at that level! It definitely made me feel better but I’m still not happy with the state of the clutter in my house. I was able to get the main rooms clean – the kitchen, dining room and family room, but the office and bedrooms are still a wreck.

One important thing I noticed, I walked into my house today and felt so much better just because I didn’t have to look at all of the clutter in the hallway as soon as I walked in. My state of mind is so connected to my surroundings and my house has been making me tense and angry lately. I need some organization and a schedule to keep it under control.

out of control

this is going to be a hard one, because I am married to a pack rat – but I think I am going to take advantage of his deployment to get everything under control so that when he comes home we can live more simply and make moving easier when we decide to get into a new house.
