43 Things for Goal Setting

September 3, 2007 · 2 comments

I found a really great website this morning called 43 Things. It’s a goal setting and sharing website. What’s really cool about the site is how “sticky” it is - because everyone’s goals are visible and they employ things like tag clouds you can very easily see who else shares common goals and you can literally lose yourself in exploring what other people are doing and how they are progressing towards their goals.

Here is my goal page.  Still working out the best way to use it.  When you look at goals like “lose weight” you’ll see over 20,000 people share the same goal.  But really the way the site works it is much better to set very specific goals like “lose 8 pounds in September” because at the end of the month you can mark it off as complete and then set another goal.  You can set personal challenge goal, set reminders, etc.  For example on my “run a 10k” goal I have set a reminder to my future self, 6 months out, to see how I am progressing on the goal.  Obviously my “run a 5k” goal will need to be completed first.  There is also an integration with WordPress that I’ll have to take the time to figure out.

Check out 43 Things - I think you’ll have fun with it.

Thanks for the share! I can see how this website might be addicting to some! When it comes to weight loss, sometimes it really helps if you know that you’re not the only one suffering from the diets and exercise!
