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.

Sweet Talkin’ Woman lyrics

Sad lyrics to an upbeat song….still makes me smile though because I love ELO…..

SWEET TALKINWOMAN

WHERE DID YOU GO?
I was searchin’
SEARCHIN’ on a one-way street,
I was hopin’ HOPIN’ for a chance to meet.
I was waitin’ for the operator on the line.
SHE’S GONE SO LONG What can I do?
WHERE COULD SHE BE?
No no no, don’t know what I’m gonna do,
I gotta get back to you.
You gotta slow down
SLOW DOWN sweet talkin’ woman SLOW DOWN
You got me runnin’ RUN RUN you got me searchin’.
Hold on HOLD ON sweet talkin’ lover HOLD ON
It’s so sad if that’s the way it’s over.
I was WALKIN’ many days go by,
I was thinkin’ THINKIN’ ‘bout the lonely nights.
Communication breakdown all around.
SHE’S GONE SO LONG What can I do?
WHERE COULD SHE BE? No no no,don’t know what I’m gonna do,
I gotta get back to you.
You gotta slow down SLOW DOWN sweet talkin’ woman SLOW DOWN
You got me runnin’ RUN RUN you got me searchin’.
Hold on HOLD ON sweet talkin’ lover HOLD ON
It’s so sad if that’s the way it’s over.
I’ve been livin’ LIVIN’ on a dead end street,
I’ve been askin’ ASKINKINDLY everybody I meet.
SHE’S GONE SO LONG What can I do?
WHERE COULD SHE BE? No no no,don’t know what I’m gonna do,
I gotta get back to you.
Oh, slow down SLOW DOWN sweet talkin’ woman SLOW DOWN
You got me runnin’ RUN RUN you got me searchin’.
Hold on HOLD ON sweet talkin’ lover HOLD ON
It’s so sad if that’s the way it’s over.
Slow down SLOW DOWN sweet talkin’ woman SLOW DOWN
You got me runnin’, you got me searchin’.
Hold on HOLD ON sweet talkin’ lover HOLD ON
It’s so sad if that’s the way it’s over.
Slow down SLOW DOWN sweet talkin’ woman SLOW DOWN
You got me runnin’, you got me searchin’.
Hold on HOLD ON sweet talkin’ lover HOLD ON
It’s so sad if that’s the way it’s over.
