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 dilemma

The italian family i worked for as an au-pair has asked me if i’d want to spend this summer with them. I liked the kids, but looking after them was everything but a piece of cake.
I could earn some money, I could spend the summer in Tuscany and this time I’d probably be more relaxed and experienced with the kids.

But I have a great summer job. It pays a little less, but it’s much more fun. I would be free to come and go as i please whereas in the Tuscany summer house I’d depend on the family to give me car rides to the train or elsewhere. In the summer house i’d basically be with the kids for 24h a day 6 days a week….

But the house is in a lovely are with a semi-private beach.
But there is no freedom to come and go or do my own things
But it’d be Italy
But i’d be far from home and friends
But being in Italy is much more interesting than being here
But it’s very hot over there in the summer
But…
But—-

I have to decide very soon, but it’s difficult. Both options have a lot of great things about them and… also some negative factires
