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.

livin light....

i’m so good at keeping my living space simple and declutered, yet artful and confortable. as many of you may have experienced, when my space is cluttered so is my mind. it’s amazing how simply getting rid of unnecessary items brings about clearer thinking.

when i moved to my new place i got rid of sooo much ‘stuff’. my boyfriend works at a thrift shop and used to always spontaneously bring me things he finds there. i always appreciated it and adored many of them, but i had to kindly let him know that i really need to keep my space simple and clutter free. now he asks before bringing me things. his place is filled up with all types of neat furniture and other pieces he’s found. while i can appreciate it, it’s just a bit much for me. i don’t know what we’ll do when we decide to move in together, lol!

what i need to work on next is cleaning up my computer. hundreds of files and pics need to go.


I want to:
