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.

do first things first (read all 975 entries…)

I’m enjoying not having a deadline right now, at least nothing that isn’t self-directed. I’m balancing sorting, decluttering, planning, cleaning, resting, mommy time and personal time pretty well right now, things are getting done. I look at all the stuff poised to go out the door and it feels really good. So good that I’ve been re-sifting things I was going to keep and weeding further. We have a long way to go, but there have been bounds in the right direction.

Tomorrow Isak has a special creative problem solving day class he was invited to take part in (his teacher is going with him), and this weekend he’s having an overnight with his aunt and uncle, there’s a community street party, and a dear friend’s birthday party we’re all going to… the schedule is filling up fast.

Tomorrow will be a harder day for me to get through, but at least I feel like I’m doing some concrete dealing with grief and memories and letting go.
