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.

I want to call in sick today. My knee is really bothering me. I’ve been away from work for a week. I just don’t want to come in.
We have our regular meeting at 830 and it’s making me anxious.

I have a legit excuse, my knew is sore. Last week was hard with the trip. and this weekend. I did take it easy a little.
Saturday, store, and the party, and then yesteardy church and group, and rested. I need to really rest it. Honestly< i don’t think it will be completely healed and the gains I get from resting today, will go away by mid day Tuesday. I just need to rest it.

I’ve been to the doctor and they say the knee is ok, so I don’t need to go in again, but I need go to pt and rest it.

I’ll call my bosses phone at 7am, then I will call J. to let her know. I’ll send her the agenda. She’s mad at me i”m sure because I’ve been out, but that’s how it felt when she left for maternity leave last yeard and I was doing it by myself. She’ll be fine.

what you need to do is take a formal leave of absence, if your knee needs a long stretch to recover.

That way, your employer won’t be caught off guard, can redistribute the work load, and you will have a solid block of time to heal.

Or, is there a way your work duties could change to make things easier for your knee? Can you work part of the week at home?

I did call in sick and was able to get to the physical therapist. It was good. My knee checks out, ok, (no visible damage ). I need to walk more in alignment, straighten up. When I slouch, it hurts.

I need to practice walking upright. It’s harder than it thinks. I have some exercises as well.
