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.

work less, live more (read all 2 entries…)

I quit one of my jobs this week. I’m so excited to be able to make plans and do something for myself besides working. And I’m about to get a raise at my other job. I’m so happy!

Have a restaurant know my "usual"

You know, I work in a resturant where I know dozens of specials. And, of course, I cannot get one person in one resturant that I visit regularly to know my usual.
I can’t even get the people at Domino’s to remember that I like extra garlic sauce with my pizza and I’ve been there three times this week!

work less, live more (read all 2 entries…)
Very hard.

This is going to be a difficult task for me. I work two jobs and about 65 hours (at minimum) a week. Working interferes with my life a lot, but I work in a town where there’s a lot to do in summer, and not so much in the winter. I’m saving up for the winter, but I need to learn how say no when people beg me to take their shifts and stuff like that. I would love to be able to relax a little during my summer and enjoy myself, maybe work on some of my other goals.


I want to:
