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.

pay off debt

I just figured out my taxes and I owe them… ARG!
To make it more adventurous for me, I started drafting and made projections for the year and making plans on how to squash all debts I owe. If I stick with it, the whole amount will be paid off before the year ends. Wooohooo!!!

Stop holding on to the things that clutter my home and my life (read all 8 entries…)

a few days ago I finished breaking down most of the packing boxes I use as small tables in the garage. The garage also known as the bicycle building studio, now houses a new work bench. Most of my bike tools, equipment and parts are now in order. No more brining in tasks in the house. Everything can now be worked on the table right beside the bike stand.

there is one more corner i have to tackle that houses some unwanted household items and a few packing materials. it will be dealt with soon.

i think the trick here is to enjoy and celebrate what one has accomplished for a while and prepare for the next clutter battle in the horizon.

Stop holding on to the things that clutter my home and my life (read all 8 entries…)

I started purging today. I noticed that I am running out of table top. I’ve cleared out things in my kitchen that I’m not using at all. Now I’m happy I can see clear and clean spaces.

While tackling the clutter, I’m reorganizing as well.

See all entries ...
