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.

Wonderful !!!!

I can’t believe my fortune today. I mentioned my interests in RE teaching to someone in my life who has the experience and possibly the ability to help me with my goal. The person I spoke to wants to start a new adventure in education and asked me if I would ever be interested in joining them in creating a fantastic project working with children!
I am so glad I mentioned that I wanted to explore this concept, I think it reminded this person of how hard I work and how similar we are in what we want to do in our field! Maybe I will met this goal and it will be rewarding in the ways I dream of but worry can’t happen for me!
Even if the person never does what they were thinking of I still think this is the right goal for me. I feel real excitement for the first time in months!

“What kind of world do you want
Think Anything
Let’s start at the start
Build a masterpiece
Be careful what you wish for
History starts now…

Sunlight’s on the Bridge
Sunlight’s on the Way
Tomorrow’s Calling”

Five For Fighting
I feel renewed in my teaching and education goals!

I love this idea

I am going to start by reading what I can online and join some groups to learn more. I am fastinated by the Reggio Emilia style of pre-school. This concept can transform and enrich classrooms and bring so much more to a child’s life. I think from what I have read already I teach as close to this “way” as I am allowed in the school where I work now…but to find a place that I could truely work this way through curriculum, environment and actual time spent with children over time would be ideal for me.
I have hit a weird rut lately in what i want to do with my teaching and how to advance in my career.
