I miss 43Things. What other ways can I keep track of my goals?

I kind of miss 43Things. What site/app/community etc. can I use to keep track of my goals? Wrinkles: I don't care about gamification, a lot of my goals are not health-related, the social/community aspect is what I miss most.

So, that pretty much covers it. I basically want 43Things back {sob}. Failing that, I'd love someplace/thing with a supportive community and the ability to track a unique list of goals. I like being able to write a little diary entry whenever I want. I don't like having to check in on goals on a set schedule (even though I realize that's an effective way to make progress).

Things I've tried that I don't like:
- HabitRPG (I know lots of people love it, but it turns out I don't care about getting points or keeping a character alive)
- Health Month (same - the only part that appeals is the review of my day)
-Beeminder (this is pretty much the opposite of what I want)

Any other suggestions?

A lot of former 43things folks have ended up on popclogs.com -- see this goal for a partial list. I was never super active on 43 and never even bothered making the switch to Popclogs, but my wife did make the switch and seems to think it's a decent substitute.

Bullet Journaling. Link is to main hub, but there is no end of blogs, videos, Pinterest pages and Facebook groups for various subsets of the bullet journal community.

Also, maybe Day Zero Project ?

I've asked this question before and I now use Day Zero Project, as recommended above, which is as 'simple' looking as 43things. I've now started on Level Up Life but it might be a bit gamey/kitchy for you? I pretty much ignore the 'game' aspect and just add goals.

I seriously still miss 43 things. Please someone bring it back.
