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.

- The Robots.

be more organized
Even changing your shelving helps

When we moved into our new house we found that all the closets had wire shelves, which was fine, but the support system forced them to be a couple feet apart. So we installed a different shelf support system and doubled the available shelves. It’s also more modular, if we have to move things around.

And isn’t it amazing how much stuff you get rid of when you move?

We also tried the “less is more” technique. Remove everything from a small area, box it up, and only replace stuff as you need it. This helps immensely with decluttering and it’s amazing how much stuff never comes back out of those boxes, especially if it’s decorations.

hit level 60 in World of Warcraft
WoW at 60 or 70

It always seems to be easier to build my own team than try to get into an existing one. Let’s me be a bit pickier, too. Solo play isn’t bad, but it really helps to have a guide. Grinding for the gold is a pain, tho, thank goodness for the Auction House.

I found some gold tips here and there are a bunch of cool videos on YouTube for all kinds of WoW stuff.

get to level 60 on World of Warcraft.
Getting to 60 (or 70) is worth it, if...

If you have no life…
If you love the game…
If you like to finish big projects…
If you write guides telling people how to do it…
Or if you just want to see what’s on the other side of that next level.

Of course, doing it more than once can get a little dull… ;)

See all entries ...
