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.

yogagal1Cleaned vaccume cleaner first time in life!

I took apart the vaccume cleaner , replace its filter and belt, and cleaned out all the components, dusty part and the rotating brush pin.

joie de vivrefirst shot at this

Every Day

  1. Eat well: avoid sugar; eat organic, fresh, non-processed, and local whenever possible. Drink tea and water, and occasional beer/wine.
  2. Housework – stay on top of laundry, dishes, cooking, recycling
  3. Minor yardwork – do at least one thing in the yard every day. Small things count – water the container plants, do a spot of weeding, etc.
  4. Bicycling or walking
    • Transportationally: any errand that is 2 miles or less, walk; 2 – 10 miles, bicycle. Exceptions are for heavy/bulky loads
    • Recreationally: Month number x 10+ miles every weekend on the tandem, ie, 40-50 miles rides, in April; 50 – 60 mile rides in May, etc. One mid-week similar length ride on the single. One hike in the woods weekly.

Weekly or Semi-Weekly

  1. Grocery shopping, semi-weekly OK, so I can walk it
  2. Mow the lawn – weekly
  3. Cleaning floors – weekly
  4. Cleaning bathrooms – weekly
  5. Emptying the garbage – semi-weekly
  6. Emptying kitchen waste into the compost bin – semi-weekly
  7. Have fun – find at least one purely fun activity (going out to dinner, to the movies, to a lecture, to a concert) and do it.

Major tasks, that take one or more days to complete, should be listed under Spring/Summer 2014 goal list on 43things, in priority order, and marked as completed as completed. 8 months ago

joie de vivreNow that I'm back

I am feeling completely overwhelmed with all that I need to do. And the pilgrimage made me realize how much time I waste.

So: Get organized. I won’t start this today, as I am still mega-jet lagged. But soon. Soon. Soon. 8 months ago

SonyTask 5 - Catch up on Paper Work

I have two critical paperwork I need to catch up on:
  1. Get all the paperwork sorted out for the new buy-to-let property I purchased recently. I have got someone else doing the ground level work for me. But I still need to go through the paperwork myself and ensure everything is OK.
  2. I have some pending insurance claims that I need to make and get it all sorted. 9 months ago
