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.

little by little..

I organized a lot today and my room is looking really good. I went through papers and organized them into envelopes into a file so they aren’t all jumbled together anymore. It feels so much better to be in there now. I also created a system where i put all of my purse contents like keys, wallet ,phone into this little box so they are always there and i dont have to run around the house searching for the purse that does have those things inside. It’s an improvement :)

Getting there...

I’ve organized more of my school papers tonight and feel more relaxed. Everything has it’s designated place for my placement papers so I will be organized in that area. My room is still a mess, but my bag is organized for school and I try to pick clothes out for the next day the night before. So I’m making some progress now.
places to improve:
-clean and keep room clean
-put clothes away at night instead of putting them on the chair

good luck everyone!
Lisa <3

Getting better day by day...

I have actually seen progress on this goal. I go to bed earlier, I pack the night before for school and I am doing school work ahead of time so I don’t get stressed out. It’s getting better, but it will still be quite awhile until I can say “I am organized.”
things to work on:
-hang up clothes at night
-keep desk clean
-have assignments pretty much done 2 nights before due.

This morning.

This morning it was time to go to school. I was ready to go and then couldn’t find my folder that I needed. Then while I was walking to school I remembered that I forgot something at home that I couldn’t go without.. so I went back home to get it.. so annoying. I’m writing this out so I realise how badit is and how much I need to change my bad habits of procrastinating. This way of living makes me stressed and I am always looking for stuff and feel cluttered.
I could have had all my stuff ready in my bag last night and my outfit planned and felt relaxed. But no.
good luck to all of you!


getting there…
I’ve been keeping this goal in mind everytime I put my stuff down on the floor I think about bringing it up to my room instead, and tidying up once and awhile.

I've decided...

That next week I am going to try to do all of the things on my list of things that would help me get organized. This smaller goal should get me started in the longer and more overwhelming goal of being organized, because I don’t know when that will be!
good luck:)
