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.

Done well today too. I mopped the kitchen floor which I’d been putting off for ages and while I had the mop out I did the toilet and bathroom floors too.

Did some decluttering in my old bedroom at my parents’ house today. I was very ruthless and it was a lot easier than it’s ever been before. Partly because of all the things I’ve been reading on decluttering lately but mainly because all my possesions that are there I don’t use frequently because they’d be here if I did. I’ve been living without those things for a few months so I can probably live without them.



Cleaning

So far today I’ve spent 45 mins cleaning. 15 in the living room and 30 in the kitchen. After my break I’m gonna tackle the bathroom. I can do anything 15 minutes at a time! I love www.flylady.net !

Today I need to:

go to the post office, and
clean and tidy the flat.

I also should:

write my CV,
read some un-read emails, and
do some laundry.



Websites

I’ve found some good websites on this:

Today I am backing up my itunes and cleaning up my room a little.

I’ve added “do one thing I’ve been putting off” as a goal I want to do daily on www.sparkpeople.com. I’m using that site to track my weightloss goals and other goals too. I love this site so I can write entries about each goal, but I like how over there they have check boxes.

Today I found my passport and cleaned Frankie’s bathroom.



DO IT NOW!!!!!!!!!

Yes! I AM tidying my room! I’ve done the main floor area between the door and the bed and on the bed and a lot of the floor area between my bed and the TV. But I’ve ran out of boxes. My Dad will be home in an hour then we are going to buy more boxes!

I’ve also paid my credit card bill today.

I still procrastinate a lot and I’ve just made a post about growing my nails long, and I said I would use maximum growth more often, so I’m painting it onto my nails right now!



Ironic

I need to stop procrastinating. I bought a book about how to beat procrastination, called “Eat That Frog” but I’ve put off reading it!
