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.

Figure out the storage unit with all Mom's stuff in it


Recent activity

As a Phoenix RisingWhat I have figured out

is that this can’t be done any sooner, even though I gave a start to sorting the storage unit out.

Really, I’ll sell this house, buy another and that storage unit and the storage unit I’ll have to get after selling and before buying another house for the stuff in this house will both go to the new house to be sorted and culled.

Only things I Love will go in to the new house. The rest will move on to their destiny.

So, this goal, marked complete. 2 years ago

As a Phoenix RisingLife Lesson Learned. While talking about storage units.

Life is short. You don’t know how much time you have.

Right. Glass blowing class tomorrow. Boxes in house on Sunday. Sigh…
Time to move the things in the boxes and the past that goes with them on to their destiny. He is right. It is time to do this. 2 years ago

As a Phoenix RisingAfter I took the custodian to social security to see how it was impacted by retiring

He rang me up later in the day, some what in a panic. I calmed him down. We talked about the two storage units he pays for and what was in them. When he emptied those it would be like a pay increase and simply that was motivation to do so. We talked about what was in them and why. It’s like talking to myself on that score. I really need to deal with Mom’s storage unit. Sigh…..... 2 years ago

As a Phoenix RisingThis is the third month running

the storage place hasn’t been able to do an auto pay to my credit card correctly.

I asked to talk to the guy I’ve worked with for the storage units for years and learned he sold the place and three women now own it. Ohhhhhhhhhhhhhh. So that’s the problem. New people with lack of experience.

I think I’ll check out other places. Simply moving the storage unit will cause me to cull it. 2 years ago
