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.

Achieve distinguished area status as Toatsmasters Area Governor (read all 30 entries…)
Positive praise and feedback

Two club presidents in my area indicated that they will nominate me for the Area Governor of the year award. I am very happy that the people, with whom I worked closely, feel that strongly about the contribution I made in the area. I do not really care whether I get the award or not but I do appreciate their vote of confidence in my leadership.

I am not sure yet if my area will achieve distinguished status but all the clubs in my area has a stronger membership base than when we stated this year. All my club presidents really supported me so well in my Area objectives and each made a unique contribution to make my year successful.

I nominated one of my club presidents for the Toastmaster of the year award because I really think he deserve such an award. He took a club of 9 members and no interest in bein part of the club’s executive committee, doubled the membership base and now have a strong executive committee. His club hosted the Toastmasters day for all the clubs in my area. He arranged the club’s 40th birthday and encouraged his club to have a Humerous hop about competition in which eight clubs participated. He brought old Toastmasters back into the club and kept building his members skills through educational presentations. He went far beyond the call of duty by presenting educational presentations at various other clubs. None of this was done for any reward and recognition since he is already a Distinquished Toastmaster. I really think he should get the Toastmaster of the year award.

Another club president has already stepped forward to take over from me as Area Governor. She has done so well with her club in the past year that I am certain that she will be ultra successful as an Area Governor. The fact that she volunteered shows the quality of people I had the honor of working with. She has a poitive attitude that can only benefit the area’s future growth.I made a promise to support her if ever she needs some assistance.

The present Division Governor nominated me, with my agreement, for the role of Division Governor. My nomination is currently supported by at least three of the other five area governors in the division. So it seems likely that I will get the opportunity to continue a bit further on the leadership track of Toastmasters International.
