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.

Elissa Ready for 2013

Step out of my comfort zone (read all 5 entries…)
Sunday Outting

One of my New Year’s Resolutions was to go to church once a month. I waited till the last Sunday of January to go. I was pleasantly surprised when my husband advised the kids on Saturday that we would all be going to church. I hadn’t even pressured him to go in order to not make him resent church or feel as if it was a chore. So when he volunteered to go and told the kids to go I was enthusiastic. As a family we went to the church and I must say we all really enjoyed it.

The funny thing is I didn’t just step out of my comfort zone by going to church but I also incorporated the two earlier post into this task. I wore a dress and went to a church in my town which required me to interact with the locals, which are both things that make me uncomfortable as my previous posts state. This one thing allowed me to actually step out of my comfort zone in 3 different ways. YEA FOR ME!


Elissa has gotten 2 cheers on this entry.
