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.

Juggling act

Today I will attempt to get several balls into the air. First, more coffee… then I’d like to put at least an hour apiece into the following:

  • Cleaning the house
  • Touching base with friends and family
  • Exercise
  • Catching up on entries here
  • Starting my new project

I’m starting (now!) in the dish rampant kitchen, have a long-overdue Skype date with a faraway friend set up for later this afternoon, and downloaded the next 3 projects this morning. I’m planning to take a “break” at 3:00 to watch TV while doing a Wii free run, and hopefully I’ll return here later if I have any juice left. That’s the plan, and I’ll try to stick to it. Maybe I should put some honey on my hands first…


RM There are better days ahead!

That’s usually what my day looks like too, minus the Skype. Hahaha. Good luck to you! Hope it went as planned.
But the most crucial ingredient…more coffee!!!

Harmless Dilettante What I should have said was nothing.

Cool Pic

I always enjoy your posts and your well chosen pictures. ”... put some honey on my hands first,” just made me laugh. Even if you don’t manage to be a multi-tasking goddess today, you’ve already me made me smile. Thanks!

Ru has gotten 11 cheers on this entry.
