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.

dragonfly35Surprisingly easy

I still need to file things correctly once I get my system up and running, but everything is organized and filed on the desk for when that day comes, and I’ve taken care of some nagging tasks I found in the pile as well. :) 10 months ago

dragonfly35My energy does seem to be back

and the desk seems like a great place to start with my big push to get organized during the second trimester. :)

I need to get a proper working filing system in the house (yes, I’ve been saying this for over a year) but I can start by sorting what is there into files and folders – it’s a manageable chunk and can lead into greater organization as we go forward. 10 months ago

Diane StevensClean? What's that?

At work I manage to be quite organized… I need very little at work to be efficient. A laptop, a keyboard, couple monitors… and a box of tissues. A pen and paper is only necessary to assist people that walk up to my desk and ask a question as I record all notes on my computer now… Slowly I organize all my electrical documentation too.
Just need pencils and pens at work since I rarely write anything.. At home.. My office is like after the earthquake.. only 10 times worse.. Ok, maybe 100 times worse.. That wasn’t a strong earthquake. The office is worse than the desk though. 3 years ago
