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.

raslalique I'm baaaack!

dream BIG (read all 2 entries…)
So far

A group of people who run one of the organisations I’m affiliated with were discussing what we would do in a perfect world considering a particular issue that had been plaguing us. I suggested we put our big suggestions on paper and start to accomplish as many as we can. We did that and so far some of the ideas are starting to bear fruit.

I realised that dreaming big is something I do for other people and definitely at work but never for myself. At both my jobs I have seen how many of my ideas have been implemented and produced meaningful change, even the ones that others had thought to be stupid or impractical.

Now I’ll have to go out and dream big for myself. I am worth the effort and I’m sure the big dreams for myself will pay off the way my big dreams for work seem to.


raslalique has gotten 4 cheers on this entry.


I want to:
