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 Paris

My 2 sisters, my Mom, an aunt and uncle, and a cousin all left for Paris yesterday for 10 days. My sisters and cousin are going to run in the Paris Marathon on Sunday.

I am very inspired by them concerning this trip…and a little jealous! It has taken a lot of planning and discipline,and is not only a fun trip, but a spiritual one for them. I got to thinking…I can have my “Paris” right here at home! While they are gone having their adventure, I am going to make it a point to be getting myself out there out of my comfort zone! Adventure and awakenings! When they return, and we sisters get together to talk about the spiritual side of their trip, I will have my own to add to the stories!

I am going to keep a list so I will remember what I have done. So far:
*yesterday I e-mailed some Reading teachers from other schools and
asked them if they would like to do lunch on Friday, so that is
planned for tomorrow
*I asked my friend who I haven’t seen in 2 months if she would like
to go out for supper tonight, and we did
*I joined the discussion at our new CG group
*I asked my Dad to take a trip with me to visit family on Saturday,
so we have that planned


sparklebaby has gotten 2 cheers on this entry.


I want to:
