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.

This is going well ( touch wood)

I like this whole being organised thing. It’s better then I ever thought it would be. I don’t feel stressed or moody because we’re actually on time everywhere. I’m getting things done and not after a few months of it sitting there waiting to be done. I need my life to carry on like this.

So far, so good

Two days into the school week and everything is going good. I’ve been getting up at about 5 each morning for an early run. I then come home, tidy up, hang washing etc. After that comes shower time, get girls up, breakfast, girls dressed and off we toddle to school. I like this whole organised business. It makes me feel settled and calmer.

A new chapter of my life...

and this will requireca complete u turn in my organisational skills( in that i need to acquire some). I’m not in the least bit organised and i never have been but i want to be. I’m late everywhete. Even if i’m looking like i will be on time, i’ll do some random thing to make myself late, without really realising. I forget to do things, the washing basket is always full and i’m basicallyso laid back about things i may aswell be horizontal. The thing is i don’t want to be like this. I want to be fully functioning in this mad world and i think i can do that with a little organisation. I have two children, a partner, 3 pets, a house to run and now an impending full time job and a degree. I think this will require some military organisation.
