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.

My instuctor told me that I do a good job and that he doesn’t want to see me end up in a walk-in salon or a family salon.Hes gonna put a good word in for me.That makes me feel really good.That I do a good job and he could see me working in a higher class salon.Well hopefully I can be done with school and quick my job because I hate it very much and I don’t want to be there anymore.Well I’ll see what happens.I hope he recommends me to someone that would be awesome.I would be so happy to be working at something that like to do.I don’t want to do something that I don’t want to do.I don’t want to look back on my life and see something that I don’t like.I would hate to say that I didn’t put all effort forward to do what I want and lve to do and not be the best at it that I possibly could be.
