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.

"you are looking good"

My client today said “you are looking good… Particularly healthy”

I take this as a wonderful acknowledgement of the benefits from being on this new healing program :)

I've liked everything you have cooked to date

My sweetie doesn’t seem to believe I am capable of cooking anything less than delicious. It’s nice to have such strong trust and deep appreciation.

time to take note again...

I’ve been receiving plenty of compliments, but can’t really think of what any of them have been! Time to start recording a few of them again for my grey days :)

oh, I know, my mom said “You never cease to impress me with how once you recognize a lack of knowledge in an area you need to learn about how you immediately set to researching it so thoroughly so that you can make well informed choices.”

You can talk to anybody about anything

K emphatically shared that one of the things she’s always admired about me is that I have no fear of talking with anybody about anything… that I’m good with people like that ;)

I love how smart you are

“I love how smart you are, and willing to learn!” M – when I sat down to read a technical health book he wanted me to look at.

social gatherings and people planning for parties

S told me today that “you are so good at planning social events and parties and choosing the right people to attend such that everyone is comfortable and has a good time.”

Appreciation from teaching my first workshop

I just received an e-mail that i want to save as it makes me glow with quiet pride over my skill and success teaching my first ever formal workshop.

“Thank you so much for the workshop! I really appreciated everything you did leading up to the event and then being so supportive throughout. I’ve talked to a few folks since then and they were all ecstatic and raving about the work. This weekend I have already practiced twice with folks and then worked through the powerpoint (speaking of which they wanted to come to your Portland workshop so when you get a chance could you send it to me?)”

So inspiring as I prep for my next one!

"You're so much more than awesome...

.. that you leave awesome looking like dog poo…”

strong organizational skills

My boyfriend quietly noted over the weekend that he sees me as somebody who has strong organizational skills. He acknowledged that there are a few areas where I don’t apply these skills yet, or very well, but he thinks that is because I haven’t committed to investing my resources to do so, and that if I chose to do so, I’ll be very successful in those arenas as well :)

Thoughts from the weekend

“You’ve earned yourself some truly wonderful friends!”

“You are such a good cook! Thank you for creating such amazing meals for us!”

“You really know what you’re doing! You’re thai massage always feels amazing! And you’re a good teacher too :)”

“You are so badass” (rain coat with hood up and sun glasses while walking with hands in pockets along the beach)

“You are so cozy to snuggle. All warm and squishy” (snuggle fest with lady friends at the beach.)

“You two are perfect for each other. You balance each other beautifully. You ground him, and he obviously adores you!”

“You would look hot in that!” – K

“You are a gloriously sexy woman!” – K while looking over photos.
