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.

I want to go through my shelves and select

the books that I can give away or sell since I am probably not going to read them again—ex. college required reading books


gave away 2 books

threw away some more

stuff :)

Going through boxes and organizing stuff and tossing stuff.

found some very old boxes of stuff

threw out several bags of stuff from middle school, high school and college—

found some interesting letters—

no wonder I used to be so stressed out!!!

I need to take more time doing this.

I have been distracted. It would make such a difference if I would just do it. I think it would help if I could get the new direction thing figured out. Then I would know what I need for the journey and what I can leave behind.

I gathered a list of information.

Then I tossed the stack of papers that I no longer need because the info is on the list.

cleared another three stacks

still have more to go

started a record of important dates

nice to keep a written record so I don’t have to keep it in my head

cleared three stacks

threw out two bags of trash from papers of a time period that I let sit there because I wanted nothing to do with the memories

want to put some things in storage until I can get around to them

and move out some of the stuff that is in my bedroom

love2u has gotten 45 cheers on this goal.


I want to:
