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.

5/20/12- things to do this week

onebaygirlYay! Completed my list!

Sometimes things I want to do get put on the backburner due to anything from being busy, stress, anxiety, fatigue, things that come up, other priorities, forgetting due to too many things going on, and maybe even other reasons that don’t come to mind at the moment. So I decided it’s a good idea to have short-term lists that don’t actually need to be a long-term goals, rather just a reminder and/or a push to do some things.
So here it is:
1. Despite a very rainy week, I did my planting. I planted the mint plant in a very nice ceramic pot I had sitting in the cellar and decided to keep it in the kitchen. It has a pleasant aroma and proved to be a handy convenience after a week of whipping up fresh tzatziki sauce each morning to go with my lunches. I planted the sunflower seeds and the three remaining marigold plants this morning. It was a little rainy this morning, but by the time I finihed breakfast, it cleared up and dried up and I was able to go out to do my planting and other yard work. I really hope these sunflowers grow!
2. I woke up early enough to make my bacon and eggs Monday morning. I had some leftover bacon for another morning too. I woke up about 15 minutes earlier than usual all week, except for Friday.
3. I finally lit my candle at St. Patrick’s. Did you know approximately one million candles are lit at St. Patrick’s each year?
4. My friend A contacted me and we went out. Everything is okay, she was just busy with a work deadline. I understand exactly. We used to work together.
5. Got more info on Broadway shows and Niagara Falls. Emailed to my friend and will talk and book soon. We’re going to see Wicked, and pretty sure we will go to Niagara Falls. 2 years ago

onebaygirlTo do list for this week

1. Plant my sunflower seeds and the rest of the marigolds. Decide whether to plant the mint plant in the garden, or keep it potted inside. My original plan was to add it to my garden, but the label says it’s best kept at room temp. in a sunny window and to keep soil moist and repot as needed to encourage growth. hmmm…

2. Wake up early enough tomorrow to make bacon and eggs. I treat myself to this once in a while and didn’t do so this weekend. The eggs need to be used, and this will hopefully put me off to a good start to a week of getting up earlier.

3. Light a candle at St. Patrick’s. The suggested donation is $2 and I never have the right change. Right now I do.

4. Contact my friend A if I haven’t heard back from her yet. I contacted her last week and haven’t heard back. It’s not like her and I hope nothing is wrong. I know she might be distracted by a couple potential things. I hope not.

5. Get more info on the Broadway shows Niagra Falls and let my friend M know so we can plan her and her SO’s visit.

I think that’s enough goals for this week. If I write too many, they will never get done. If I get more done, then that’s great!
Now I will write this all down so I don’t need to log in to check it off. I must minimize my time online so I can get things done. 2 years ago
