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.

organize my life


katherynrainne has written 2 entries about this goal

what gives?

what constitutes organization? knowing whats going on? keeping a clean house? using my palm?

i may have to redefine this goal. yeah.

Lost Cause? Not yet!

Part of why my mother and I argue constantly is because she thinks I’m ‘unclean.’ Not in a biblical sense, but literally. She thinks my disorganization equals unsterile living environments.

She wrong, though. My house is clean, but messy. I have a nasty habit of allowing random clutter to permeate through the house. And office, actually. Oh, and the car.

But everything has been scrubbed and scoured. I’ve worked two industries (consistantly) in my life: health care and food. So I know about keeping things clean.

Organization, though, is another matter.

I have, however, started a filing system for my recipes. I’ve trying to put my yarn, needles, patterns, etc. away when I’m not using them, instead of leaving them scattered (artistically, of course) through the living room.

My husband is caught up in the act. He and the Baby actually organized the movies on their own inititve last night while I was at Arbonne.

Its making the whole house FEEL cleaner.

Strange, how my mother might have meant that the house never felt as clean as it was, and not actually that the house was dirty.

That’s what I’m choosing to believe, anyhow.


I want to:
