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.

What Shifts????

Is it God’s will, our our (my) perception of what God has in store for us. It was less than a year ago that I was all gung-ho and driven on the law school track. Now, I’m perfectly happy (and busy) as a paralegal again. Last year, when I couldn’t find a job, I just KNEW it was because God had it in the plans for me to become an attorney. Now, I feel as if I’m right where I’m supposed to be. I’m blessed, fulfilled, challenged, and I enjoy what I do. Further, I’m no longer interested in killing myself for at least another four years, and THEN beginning a career. So, which is it??? Was I wrong then, or am I wrong now??? At what point are we absolutely sure? Perhaps it was a test of the measure of my faith??? I’m not sure that anyone can ever TRULY know WHAT God’s will is, but I like the idea of being perfectly willing to walk through any doors that He may open for me, and to acknowledge that when a door closes, that’s that. I’m partially torn, however, between the idea that I’m being lazy in “settling” for my career over school right now, but I’m simply not interested in being “entry level” in another 5 years or so. I’m in a good place right now, a place with room to grow, and I like it.
