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.

mrsrad is reengaging with the working world

From Transition to Transformation (read all 15 entries…)
I'm creating this goal

to both share and document my summer of mrsrad. I am changing jobs, as is my husband. I have a new dog. I’ve lost almost 25% of my body weight in the last six months. I have an opportunity here to take this transition, which is both exciting and uncomfortable and recreate my life to be the kind of life that I want it to be. I am scared and exhilarated. I have so many opportunities. I think I might clear off many of my 43T goals and recreate those which are most important to me. I will use this as a to do list and a diary. A stream of consciousness and perhaps awake from unconsciousness. Come share my journey with me. Create your own journey. This is a journey and not a destination. That is something for me to remember, I will never just “get” there or be there. I will “become” who I want to be and how I want to live my life.

So off we go . . .


mrsrad has gotten 3 cheers on this entry.


I want to:
