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.

stop procrastinating
too much.

i procrastinate entirely too much. seriously. i haven’t recieved mail at my house since decemberish because i didn’t retrieve my mail from my mailbox for so long they deemed it vacant. that’s kind of pathetic. and really, i’ve had every opportunity on my days off to deal with it, they’ve even left a sheet with their number on it to call them. it seems as though i can place phone calls to fake sick to work, but i can’t do the same so i can actually recieve important mail? that’s just crazy. i put off paying my energy bill to the point that i owed them $500 and had to go on budget billing to pay them back. i blatantly forgot to pay them this past month [started another job, things were chaotic until i figured out a workable schedule] so now i have a $300 bill to pay them [$175 a month on budget, with back fees included.] i have a cell phone that i haven’t been able to pay for since january, that is now completely disconnected, thank god my job requires a seperate business line at $10 a month, deducted from your paycheck. so i have a phone at least. i guess i just need to grow up and take responsibility more than anything. that definitely means putting a halt on saying ‘i don’t feel like it, i’ll do it tomorrow.’

find my passion
semi passionate?

when you’re semi-passionate about so many things, how do you find your one true passion? there has to be something that somehow ties everything together. music is my number one, i just can’t figure out how to make it happen.

Get a job I like

i’ve had so many jobs, and so many of them start out with me loving them, then hating them which turns into quitting them, which turns into starting a new job in which the same cycle continues, but i always find that i miss a former job eventually.
i’ve been in sales since i was out of high school, and although i enjoy a commission-based payscale, it gets old to make minimum wage when sales are down [especially the way the economy is sliding.] i recently acquired a waitressing job [worked there for about a month now] and i enjoy it, but i still feel as though there is something else out there for me.
i always look, daily. so i guess i’ll find it eventually, i just don’t feel as though i’ve found my proverbial ‘calling’ yet.
