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.

finish my M.A.
The (very very long) Home Stretch

My dissertation is due in September. I met my supervisor today and as a result feel terribly behind schedule: I only have a vague idea of my argument and have to choose between two possible topics, both of which are equally feasible. EEK! How can I choose? Intuition? Just choose the thing that sounds cooler? I’ve tried about a million decision making techniques and still don’t know what I’m doing. Maybe I need to take a break and come back to this later? Blech.



go to India
Bought the guide

I’m planning to go to India for a couple of months sometime in the next year. So far, I’ve bought the Lonely Planet Guide (which weighs about a ton) and am looking forward to having time to read it.



have a beautiful home (read all 2 entries…)
Oh lord

I see that last time I posted on this goal I was aiming to do about half an hour of cleaning per day – well, THAT has gone totally out the window. I still don’t have a very good cleaning routine but I can’t bring myself to devote myself to it for a set half hour every day – I have too much other stuff to do which I think is more important and interesting at the moment. Which generally means I just wait until the house looks pretty squalid and then clean. I like having a clean house; I just don’t like cleaning!

On the upside, a recent visitor to my house commented that it was one of the nicest houses she’s seen recently!
