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.

Weigh 56kgs
I am now 54/55kg's : )

I am now on 60 kgs – so I need to lose 4kgs.. I go to gym at least 5 times a week. This is not helping. I need to actually change my eating habits. I need to cut out carbs at night. Starting now, not tommorow. So making sure tonight I have a healthy dinner..
I will feel so much better when I feel slimmer. I don’t feel overweight now, it would just make me feel proud to weigh 56 : )

I have signed up for Art Classes on a Tuesday night…

Hopefully this will get me back into painting..

I’m very excited.

So watch this space :)

spend more time in nature

Nature is the most beautiful free art in the universe..

Start my own business
Start my own business that makes me proud and other people happy..

I know it is possible to wake up and be excited to work and be excited for it to be a weekday!@

I just need to find out what it is that I would like to do everyday that I would be excited to wake up to do..

I would also like to do something that would not only make me happy but make other people happy too.

Get organized
Get Orginized!!!!

Get rid of everything I don’t use, need, is beautiful or useful or meaningful… give it to charity. Orginize my room, life and work desk.
Make everything look and feel orginized so I can become a orginized person. It will make me feel better about who I am. IT IS HAVING RESPECT FOR YOURSELF. Keep everything organized all the time so it does not build up..

Keep my room clean
The Tidy Room

If my room and cupboard are clean it will lesson stress as I will know where everything is. It is always nice to walk into a clean fresh room. It’s great to declutter your room, it declutters your head which in turn helps declutter your life. Seems so easy so why is my room never as tidy as I’d like it to be????
