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.

Daily Word

A friend’s mom sends me the Daily Word. I don’t always read them, but today daily word really spoke to me. I believe that God has given me the ability to have the best life that I can have, all I have to do is take positive actions. Here it is:

First Step
Partnering with God, I move step-by-step in being a healthier, happier me.
Whether I am desiring a change for the better in my health or in my life in general, or whether life itself is asking such a change of me—I may wonder how I will get from where I am to where I want to be.
I know this: I don’t have to do it all alone, and I certainly don’t have to do it all at once! That first step, however small, creates momentum. It is an action that says, “God, I am ready to accept Your plan of good for me.”
Taking the first step relieves any self-doubt and builds my confidence. The next one is a little easier, and before I know it, I have made tremendous progress on a whole new path of better living.
I make a commitment to take one step at a time. Partnering with God, I move step-by-step in being a healthier, happier me.

“For God did not give us a spirit of cowardice, but rather a spirit of power and of love and of self-discipline.”—2 Timothy 1:7
