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.

Moving makes you purge purge purge! I really do not want to move junk so I have thrown away about 5 bags of trash and have one bag for Good Will and another bag for someone else. Threw away an old stereo as well. But still have much more to go.

Cleaning and getting things straightened and organized before I go back to school. I will be working full and taking classes so I have no need for things getting in the way or that take more work than needed. Doing a good job of paring down on more items just have to keep everything organized which is another goal of mine.

I got a better paying second job, so Im going to be putting in loads of extra hours but its all going to be worth it in the end.



take control of my life (read all 2 entries…)
Untitled

I feel that Im taking pretty good control of my life and getting myself back on track and where I need to be. I have been making sure to actually complete the things on my to do list so thats been really worthwhile. Im trying to read over my goals and put more of them into action.

I created a little morning or daily routine i would like to do for myself so I will see how that comes about once i can get myself together.



Stop wasting money (read all 6 entries…)
Untitled

well, im so ashamed of myself, i usually pride myself on being able to spot out a good deal or buy in bulk here and there but something struck me today and the past week i have been cleaning up and organizing my place. I looked down and saw myself throwing away and giving away my hard earned money. All this crap that I just had to have and its nothing but waste. Same goes for grocery, thinking im saving a extra few pennies by buying in bulk when i really end up throwing away massive amounts of food because its getting old and stale.

All I can say is that I did much better when I went grocery shopping today so i will not run into this problem again. And believe no new shoes and clothes are coming in either not until i get everything how i want it and save up the money i need.



have a daily routine (read all 3 entries…)
Untitled

I have been doing pretty good at waking up before noon, so my morning routine will go something like thiis

wake up, stretch, exercise
water/vitamin
make bed
pray/read scripture
breakfast/shower

none of this is in the so called correct order but its a start for me.

Im so proud of myself as far as paring down my possessions, i have stuff Im going to sell and at least seven bags full to donate to the goodwill. I feel very good about this and Im sure by the end of this month there will be much more for me to give away!!
