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.

DayDreamer37 reading over my list knowing it's all possible!

have more magical, unexpected and wonderful things happen to me (read all 11 entries…)
I wonder what adventures await me?

Latelly, the goals that I’m crossing off my list are those that require a change of mind or courage—ie motivate myself, talk to myself as a friend instead of a critic, commit to a career etc. Only one or two that I completed recently required actionable steps ie read two books on assertiveness and use the information and keep a problem solution journal.

My new challenge requires a little bit of money. I actually have to BUY a book (which I hardly ever do unless it’s some sort of test prep guide) and have it signed. I think after that I’ll ride in a carriage which shouldn’t be too difficult since I live in NYC and Central park is right there.

I have several goals that I’m starting to see now are linked: Be part of a studio audience, be part of a documentary, take the community producer class etc. I think I’ll do those things in 2012. Or at least start putting them in motion.

I wonder what adventures await me?!? I’ll also post this under “take one step at a time”, “choose wisely” and “visit 43things every day goal.”


DayDreamer37 has gotten 2 cheers on this entry.
