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.

We have the power to design our lives

The next outlined chapter in my life story is:

1. My real estate career has been good over the years. I especially love lending. It’s what I do best. That will continue to be my bread and butter.

The crowning glory of my career will be my affordable housing foundation for displaced familes. No one deserves to be homeless or hungry – even our most heinous criminals get 3 hots and a cot courtesy of Uncle Sam!

2. We are all survivors in this life. The best thing we can do is share the experiences we have learned to help each other through. So personal empowerment workshops will be my contribution passing forward what was given to me over the years.

3. My passion for our environment and children fuels my desire to promote community gardens around the world. The more I explore this the more I can happily relay to you there are lots of treehuggers like me! ;)

There is hope for a green future afterall. Ahhhh- a big sigh of relief. :)

Once I simplified what I want everything became crystal clear.


Texas Lin has gotten 2 cheers on this entry.


I want to:
