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.

Everything is out of the Condo...

Pretty much.
It looks so big now.

A few positives...

I went over and got the freezer out of there and THEN,
I went back over and loaded up a lot of shelving and plant related items.
Hauled things not being kept to trash.
The hardest thing was to get the sleeper couch out of there.
HEAVY and not worth keeping or donating.
I have a 6 foot long iron bar used by railroad crews to align rails when new ones are spiked down.
I ripped the couch into sections with this bar and deposited the pieces in the dumpster. :)


I have been busy.
Lots to do.
Little time.
I HAVE to get done moving out of my condo.
There is a demand for rentals in the area.
I have a chance to actually generate income.
This weekend.
2 loads out and over here.

All the plants are here in the basement.
I have everything I need to set up…

3 1000 watt grow lights set to timers.
8 hours of sunlight a day
7 tables and an assortment of shelves.

By Sunday night,
maybe we’re in business…


really doing great.
Took 38 perfect size boxes over to Condo.
Put them inside.
Locked door and left.
Weak attempt to do anything.
Procrastination about 45

The amount of things...

still sitting to be moved here is
somewhat large.

Better get moving my ass

I've been using the panic mode...

of packing.
And we hired a couple strapping young men with a truck to get all the heavy stuff. They should be here soon!

I'm moving in...

the next 9 to 14 days.
I’ve done nothing.
The shortage of time will be a motivation factor by next weekend.
Count on it.

I want to:
