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.

GQkudzuNot exactly NaNoWriMo

I wanted to write in November, but I actually only got 1500 words completed. However, one of my resolutions was to write for 30 minutes each weekday morning, which I’ve done faithfully. This morning, I passed the 10,000 word mark. I’m 1/8 of the way there and still feeling very positive about the characters and flow.

I noticed this morning, too, that I have three goals about writing, so I’m going to streamline. I’ll give up on this one, mark “Start writing again” as complete and leave “Finish my novel” on my list. 18 months ago

Epic SunshineToday:

Summary notes will be fleshed out. I hope to get another big session or two done!

Then I will turn to Ratty and whisper quietly I love you. She is my muse and needs to hear this as much as I need to say it. 21 months ago


Epic Sunshinebig write

20 pages single space. I didn’t do the word count. It’s a BUNCH. I’m really in training now. Dedicated, disciplined, singly focused. 21 months ago

Epic SunshineI'm dedicating muhself to _discipline._

Nano really is all about the discipline of sitting down and writing. But it’s no good if the rest of life is undisciplined and Nano is the only theme.

For the next month I will get up and writewritewrite, before, during and after breakfast.

I vow then to walk walk walk, at lest two miles, hard core, and then to shower and find her, all before the crack of noon.

I vow too accomplish one solid, meaningful home repair, fix, step-of-progress each day, to increase my income, and to eat and rest appropriately so that the long term well being is strengthened rather than diminished. Finally, I vow that my commit is complete, in all, especially to her, that I will use Nano to further us as well as continue us. 21 months ago


Epic SunshineIt begins.

I’ve a plan, a muse, a purpose. There is no try, there is only do. 21 months ago

GQkudzuFirst draft by December 1?

I’ve begun keeping a novel journal about some ideas I’ve had—character descriptions, scenes, chapter lay-outs and so forth. I’m setting the goal of having a good roadmap in place by November 1 so that I can get a first draft on paper during National Novel Writing Month. 23 months ago
