43 Things

43 Things

From taking a few college courses to getting out of debt, everyone has at least a few things they would like to do with their lives. So, why not keep track of them? And with today’s topic of 43 Things, it’s even easier!

43 Things is a social networking Web site with a twist! With it, you can meet new people and share your information, but you can keep track of your to-do list there as well. And by a to-do list, I mean everything you want to do, everything you’ve done in the past and everything worthwhile in your life that you’d like to share with others. This site gives you the opportunity to do all of that and more!

For example, let’s say you want to make a list of five goals you would like to accomplish within the next month (or day or year or your whole life!) Maybe some of those goals are:

  • Lose a couple pounds (or one kilogram of weight)

  • Visit Scotland

  • Write a book

  • Start selling on eBay

  • Download Mozilla Firefox

Keep in mind that it’s better if your goals are more definitive (for instance, “Lose a kilogram” is better than saying “Lose weight”).

Once you have your goals in place, you can keep track of them from the Profile section on the Web site. You can keep an eye on your own goals, as well as, see how many other people are trying to achieve the same ones.

You can even ask 43 Things to remind you via e-mail that you need to accomplish a particular goal within a certain amount of time. Yep, you can set your own time intervals. It’s all very handy!

Also, for each goal, you can write a mini blog about your experiences and update others on your progress. Here’s a sample blog entry:

That way, your friends on the site can help cheer you on!

So, stop procrastinating and start getting things done today!
