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.

Would you believe that I finally got my credit report only to find that it is completely clear. Well I am going to get my credit report from the other two credit references agencies to see if they also are clear.

Getting started!!

I phone experian, (credit rating company), I should get my password on Tuesday so I can view my credit record on-line. You think being an accounting and finance student I would be mega organised in this area of my life. Usually I am, but for a while I have noticed that I have lacked displine when it came to spending. Well, that means I have to really get honest with myself and tackle any issues I have in this area.

Enjoying It!!!

I came in really late from choir practice yesterday so I knew that today I would not keep my appointment. Yesterday was brilliant! I went for a walk in the park with the Lord as I prayed, I went really early when there was hardly anyone about. It was refreshing. Why haven’t I done this sooner? Saturday morning may be the one day when my prayer time will have to be a little later. I also would like to start a prayer list.



learn 3 different languages
July 26th

Yesterday I saw two PC-ROM’s, one had learning material on for 31 different languages, the other had learning material for two different languages. I didn’t know which one to choose there is no use getting the one with 31 different languages on and I hardly use it. I was also wondering about the quality of the material. Money is a little tight are the moment but I have made up my mind to invest in my goals also the PC-ROM are good value for money so I am going to buy one today.

Yesterday I kept my time, but today I missed it again. I am determined to get to bed on time so that I am able to keep this appointment.

O.K. so I have not kept my time for three days. I feel so disappointed in myself. I am determined to resume tomorrow morning.

Why did I think

that this would be easy. Although I must admit that I am enjoying the challenge. I am going to finish my EDCL qualification in hope of being more employable. This is great experience for when I graduate. I am getting a better idea of what employers are looking for. I have registered with an agency, applied to jobs on-line and applied for jobs through our university employment network. So the job search continues…

Prayer is going good. I was 10minutes late this morning. It is important that I don’t fall asleep watching DVD’s because it messes me up in the morning I end up feeling so tired. Spending time with the Lord really gets me thinking, I have to buy a note book to write down my thoughts in the day. When all is say and done, it’s all about HIM. I just desire to draw closer to him. In all my ways please him.

Getting Started

I applied for a job yesterday. I am not completely sure that I want it, but I have to start somewhere. Everyone wants experience, something I am a little short on. I have decided to do a job blizt. That means applying for every job I see (within the sector I wish to work). Here goes…....

Today I am going to fill in an application for an accounts administrator. It is not my ideal job, but I need experience in the area of accounts, so it is a step in the right direction.

Kept my prayer time again today VICTORY!!! Yesterday I spent an hour with the Lord but then I fell asleep. Today I carried on to 6am By that time I had to start getting ready for the rest of my day. So I am determined to not only rise at 4am but carry on through. I am tempted to start my jogging regime also, but I don’t think that would be wisdom. Next week may be a good time to start.



Get a 1st in my accounting and finance degree
Getting Started

In order to get a 1st I need to start revising from now. Today I have to spend some time revising and setting up a revision timetable.

First Day!

Today I kept my 4am prayer time. It lasted about an hour. I felt very tired. My aim is to keep my 4am prayer time then start jogging at 6am. I think that I am going to spend a bit more time keeping my appointment with Jesus before I proceed to jogging as well. I do not want to get discouraged or feel overwhelmed by the amount I have taken on.

Getting Started

Tomorrow I will resume my 4am prayer time. I have kept this time previously, but I tend to slack off. I enjoy the discipline of keeping this appointment, the spiritual benefits are easily seen. I get to spend quality time with my first love (Jesus) without the distractions and interuptions of day to day life. In order to get up on time I have to get to bed on time, for me that means getting children’s clothes ready for tomorrow, getting dinner prepared, filling in my diary, and doing the housework. I didn’t get the childrens work prepared in the day so I think it will be best to leave that until tomorrow. Ideally this will all be done before 9pm. That will give me about 2 1/2 hours from now. Keep me in your prayers!!!
