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.

Working from nearer home

Got to travel to work with my husband. Ten minutes and we were there. Lush

Arranged to see a friend

Not seen my friend for a long time. We now have plans to meet and I can’t wait to catch up.

Proud parent

My girl has just graduated with a 2:1 degree. Got herself work experience in Penguin Books and is being interviewed for a permanent job on Tuesday. Lots if people are supporting her but only because she is being recommended due to her hard work and talents. So proud of her.

Pineapple Cutter

What an implement. Ordered it via Amazon for £2.65 including postage. I thought it had been cancelled and then it arrived from China. Had a go with everyone watching in work. It cored it took the skin off and sliced it into rings. No sticky hands! I love fresh pineapple. No reason not to have it now!

It was grey and raining....

Then, the sun came out and everything started to dry out. Managed to go to the park and sitting on a bag to keep my bottom dry, I got to have a picnic lunch. Really nice surprise.

It's my birthday

I bought cakes for everyone. Very nice to give people a treat.

Facilitated Training

The training session went really well. Lovely group of people. Very privileged to be part of their development.

Jam Roly Poly and custard

Is there anything more to say?

Family Meal

Went out for a family meal tonight. Lovely relaxed time together

Spent time with my daughter

My girl has been away at University and I have filled my life up in her absence. Now she is back it is not easy to balance all I am doing. But we did find some time to spend together and it was lovely to be able to wander aimlessly and talk nonsense and laugh freely. What a joy!
