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.

Create a life plan (read all 8 entries…)
What Life Plan?

I guess I have strayed a bit from the main topic. A few days ago, another friend asked me over the phone “What is your plan?” I struggled a bit and had forgotten what my articulated plan was. For the record, our plan (wifey and I) is, “To stay flexible and open to opportunities that come our way, take advantage of the opportunites that are presented to us, create our spiritual community in whatever form it shows up, and have fun along the way.”

We were planning on moving back to the West Coast last Summer due to the poor work opportunities here, but also realized that some of our investments here were really turning out better than we expected. We also realized that our tax consequences would be much less if we lived in our new home for 2 years at least and then decide if we wanted to move somewhere else, or stay in Hawaii. These days, Madame Pele seems to be smiling on us.

Aloha
