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.

Diane WallsAn Area To Clean A Day Is Working.

Just moved and have some unpacked boxes to put away. I do find I feel more focused and less stressed on this plan…knowing I have one room to work on a day.

I have reincorporated several 15 minutes walkthroughs (morning and night) ..for the purpose of “a place for everthing and everything in it’s place”. This is helping a great deal to make my house neater and comfortable. 6 months ago

Diane WallsOne Room A Day Keeps My Nerves At Bay.

I get over-whelmed easily. I start in one room and end up in another. This obviously does not work for me. So…I have assigned a day of the week to each room/area in my house for an honest to goodness southern cleaning.

Monday -Kitchen and Dining Room
Tuesday- Living Room
Wednesday- Bedroom 1
Thursday- Bedroom 2
Friday- Bathrooms
Saturday- Laundry Room
Sunday- Patio and Garden Entrance


This is the deep cleaning…not the general day to day dishes and such. 7 months ago

ozarks3213New House, New Habits

While I technically moved in to my new house nearly six months ago, we’ve only now actually completed the transition that started in the spring. With the last of the loose ends being tied up and the school year in session I am able to focus on getting the new house in shape. 15 months ago

Rudiano BambinoSo I moved again...

All is now pretty much organised in my new room except my clothes. My new wardrobe is tiny. That’s an incentive to get rid of the clothes I don’t actually wear. I got so many clothes it’s incredible. Already disposed of quite a lot. I fear there’s not much left that I don’t need…Hmmm… Gonna have to figure out a way round this… 21 months ago
