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.

- The Robots.

timothy woodhead One step forward one step back

Have tried various schemes nothing seems to work.

Though place is tidy and family is fed and washing and ironing done for the week so not a total disaster.
Just buckling down and getting stuff done works who knew lol. 6 days ago

Procrastination is perhaps the worst when it comes to living the life you mean to live. It can start from something small like getting to your daily agendas a little later and can easily lead to bigger concerns that may actually hinder your chances at opportunities coming your way. With this in mind, it’s high time I stop procrastinating and start moving. After all, time waits for no one. 6 days ago

BobbleloverThis morning

Once L woke up for the day I had to go down stairs, where she fell asleep in her swing.

I took the opportunity to do the washing up that has been building up for ages now. It’s all done and I wanted to get started on the washing but the load in the dryer wasn’t dry after being done several times. I got angry until I realised that the temperature was set on 40 which is the lowest. It’s fairly new the machine and I thought that temp was for the washing cycle, but perhaps it’s for the drying one. I have turned it up and will try it again and hopefully it solves the mystery why clothes have not been drying. 1 week ago

It feels strange tracking my goals and updating them, when deep down everyone is waiting for doom day, the day it will seem these goals and achievements never even existed. I would very much love to achieve 43 goals before the site shuts down, as a symbolic success…

I think I can almost check off ‘get more salsa training and qualifications’, I’ve taken plenty of courses, the last one as a man/leader, and am pondering right now which salsa/dance-holiday to choose… Once I make a decision (soon I hope, but I’m so terrible at making decisions…) I’ll check this one off.

I think ‘do a writing course’ is next, considering that I am now in the end stages of my second publication for children. It has been an incredibly interesting experience, with many valuable lessons. And as a result, I will soon be signing my first contract as an author :-)
Just for this one book, but still… Dreams coming true.

Next on the list, my 43rd goal to be completed is “accomplish 43 goals before adding any new ones”. Ironically. Seems like i get to start a whole new list. I wish it weren’t so. Then again, ‘learning to accept’ and ‘letting go’ are also on my list. Good practice…? 2 weeks ago

FeeLiz30 day challenges

I’ve noticed 30-day challenges work well for me. Just focus on one single thing at a time. 30 days apparently should be enough time to create a new habit. Did a challenge for the last 3 months. In doubt about which one to do next…

Oh yes just spent half an hour writing an update, then clicked a wrong button, everything gone. Sorry Runwim. Will catch up soon.
(also I noticed it was full of self-loathing so maybe it’s better it disappeared in the nothingness of webspace….) 3 weeks ago
