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.

Make time for myself to live and enjoy my own time.

Slowly arranging my life into order.
It’s likely to take several decades to get back to where I want to be.

One thing at a time.

A random find online turned out to be an insightful read. I’ve included the link here.

Shuffle till it don't hurt.

Music might be a religious pursuit for some but dance is all kinds of natural.

Ya just gotta feel the music until it makes ya move, and then ya hone yer style, make it all smooth like; fit togethar real nice.

Sugar, I’m taking up dancing again.

"The changes are subtle but I still love her." Nature Move Faster ~ Leaves

By nature, I’m people person; an extrovert.

I lead people, teach, share in the good and uplift during the bad. It’s what I do.

When I’m at my happiest, I’m creating.
Thank goodness for the digital era, I now create worlds in my spare time.

With each step into Autumn.

Begin the day with dessert.

Good morning sunshine, brisk morning air and replenished vitality.

My breakfast of choice?
a) One slice of napoleon opera cake
b) cider, cold and mulled
c) fruit parfait

I miss date nights.

The personal rituals we bide our time for make all the difference, rain or shine.

Not every pleasure is social or dependent on something else fulfilling their obligation.

Some of life’s greatest satisfaction arises from savoring the ordinary.

And since when did I stop making time for me?

1RL has gotten 25 cheers on this goal.
