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.

andi_dufresneOrganizing my office list

I’m making these lists so that I know when a goal is “done”...because some of these goals can never be 100%, not if you’re messy me.

This is my at-work office. And here’s my list:

1. Furniture – moved and reorganized
2. 2 Stacking bins – all papers touched and filed, put in binder, or tossed
3. Buy cleaning supplies at CVS: dish soap, all purpose cleaner, lysol wipes
4. Drawers in desk cleaned out
5. Surfaces cleaned well/lysoled
6. Nasty cups cleaned out
7. Inflate the exercise ball
8. Cords hidden
These things don’t have to be done to cross off list, but are ongoing, decorative ideas I want to remember:

9. New artwork on bulletin boards
10. Hanging things from ceiling tiles
11. Rita Hayworth picture (poster is preferable)
12. Art/Plants/Books! (Bazaar in October?)
13. Cords rearranged 3 years ago
