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 need to finish my number one goal first. 7 years ago

Quest_32Running out of time...

Each day I run out of time. I try to accomplish as much as I can but the end of the day comes so quickly. I find myself already having to fix the sandwiches (5 lunches) and get the clothes out for everyone (4 people). I might just try to focus on one project a day. 7 years ago

Quest_32Very hard to find time...

But I am progressing a little. At least I put my projects down on paper. Each day I manage to do 1 or two of my projects for 15 minutes. 7 years ago

Quest_32My 15 projects

Not in any particular order:
1. Icone painting
2. Pray
3. “A sense of value” (reading and activities related to philosophy, religion and daily organisation (flylady, wabi sabi) – vast, isn’t it?)
4. Exercise
5. Pamper myself, my husband, my children
6. Handcraft (sewing, knitting, emboidery, patchwork, woodwork…)
7. Finances (bugdet, investment, putting money away, spending…)
8. Develop a business (landscape architecture for example…)
9. Music (Play the alto flute)
10. Write and publish (book, article…)
11. Garden (do gardening outside, take care of plants, a lawn etc)
12. Make my dreams come true (dog sledding, hotair ballooning, buy a gong…)
13. Personal progress management (read and practice the 7 habits, learn public speaking, increase my proficiencies at work…)
14. Finish my degree
15. Share life experience (contacts, friends, internet, 43things…), keep in touch, encourage 7 years ago

Quest_32The idea of this... to work a little bit everyday (or probaly every week) on each of my 15 projects for at least 15 minutes per project. Once a week seems workable for me given my over-booked timeschedule. 7 years ago
