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.

cook more (read all 21 entries…)
Feel stuck? Read this.

If I can give anyone one piece of advice to be cooking more, it’s to PLAN.

I would say, three months ago, I rarely cooked. And by cooked, I mean cooked cooked, not non of this Kraft Dinner or instant dinners crap. I knew it was unhealthy and I didn’t want to grow up to be the mom that can’t cook. So I bought myself a frame, jazzed it up a bit with some paint, printed out a dinner plan sheet and stuck it behind the frame. With a dry erase marker, I’ve been planning out my meals EVERY night and the ingredients needed for the week. Insanely enough, I went from cooking, at best, 3 times a month, to every. single. day. And I don’t even mind it. It all just came down to PLANNING. Now that I have a set meal every night I don’t come home after work and hum and hah about what I should make and then end up settling on a easy instant meal. Trust me, if you plan out your meals, you’ll be cooking more. Promise.
(not to mention we’ve saved money because we aren’t just buying stuff at the store and then throwing it away cause we don’t use it!! Win win!)

Make a date passport

I saw this on Pinterest.

Grab a small notebook and fill it up with bucket list idea’s around town for little dates throughout the year. Cute.
