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 finished most of the house

I did the living room and the bedrooms. That will have to do for now, as the season is past and now I must move on to bird watching!

did the dishes and some laundry.

Today I did the dishes! I did them and some laundry first thing, before I wrote in my journal. However, I’ve used up all my energy on it. It took me several hours. I even hung the clothes on the line.

I’d like to get into the habit of doing that every evening before I go to bed, tidying up the whole house last thing at night.

get my house in shape and keep it that way

I don’t notice when I make a mess. I also don’t notice when the mess grows. I only notice it when it’s so cluttered that I can barely function. I’d like to notice the mess as I make it and care about cleaning it up right away, then do it.
