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.

I haven't been doing this

But I got a bug tonight and did probably a week and a half’s worth at once. :)

And I’m sure the project that I’m planning for Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday (complete room overhaul) will cancel out my debt for the entire last year!

Stunned

I just checked and found that 28 people are currently working toward this goal! I’m in good company! I haven’t been doing this with any consistency. I’m going to pick this one up again, now that my schedule is slowing down a little now (for the most part).

What, may I ask,

has gotten into me? Holey Buckets… the basement, I’m cleaning it! My trash can is full, the wood is stacked, and the recycles in the proper place to be recycled!

Okay...

Pats on the back please!

I spent 1 1/2 hours today going through toys… gleaning out those that are not played with and packing them away to ship to their family. 9 boxes! 9 boxes and I’ve not even scratched the surface… not to mention I still need to do the clothes and other kiddo neccesities!

I’m wondering… would this also count towards my goal of throwing away 30 things I don’t need?

I've been doing this consistently...

for the past week…and I feel like this is where I need to be right now. This goal has motivated me to do things I otherwise wouldn’t have done. Thanks team! :D

As much as I hate it, I'm going to have to...

bring this off the back burner and front and center. Starting Monday, this one’s back up and running…I will need encouragement to stay with this, though!

1/2- none
1/3- none
1/4- 10 min.
1/5- I honestly don’t remember!
1/6- N/A
1/7- N/A

Rules:
1. It has to be above “normal” cleaning, etc. tasks.
2. I have to finish the task I start.

Well, I suppose

Keeping track of this privately is not doing me a bit of good. I have had a few good days, but overall I haven’t done as much as I would like. I’m going to start tracking again, beginning tomorrow. I think I might use the reminder service on this goal, too.

28 Dec: 10+ mins
29 Dec: nothing
30 Dec: I suppose I could get off my lazy butt right now and do it

Giving up until the last week of January

Okay....

This goal has been really neglected lately…but for the time-being I’ve decided it’s non-priority! I will do my best to get back with this in January.
