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.

Triniprincess was good, whilse it lasted!

Have a one word resolution for 2012
One word!

Since December I have been thinking about my word for 2012. I thought it was “new”...but after doing some reflection and projection under this goal, I have found my word for 2012.

My word is…DYNAMIC!

After looking at its meaning, I feel as though it totally embodies all that I desire for 2012.

I was good with saying I want to have new experiences for 2012…but now….I desire so much more! I think new is just the basic. I want this year to be as though on fire! Everything that I want to accomplish, I want to accomplish it at the highest level. Not just new experiences and things…but life-changing things! Things/experiences that are going to just set the way for bigger and better things in 2013! I want 2012 to be my “WOW” year!

It’s going to be hard work but the pay off is worth it!

Dynamic! – active, aggressive, changing, compelling, energetic, influential, intense, domineering, animate, bouyant, effervescent, progressive, driving, assertive, awake, vital, spirited, happy, passionate!

And I’m not going to settle for less!



A cheer seems a bit mild for a post like that. There needs to be a “standing ovation” button!!!
